miraDry Q & A

What is miraDry?

Everyone perspires, but for some men and women, excessive underarm sweating is a source of stress and embarrassment. A solution is available through miraDry, the only FDA-cleared treatment for eliminating sweat and odor glands under your arms.

This innovative approach is both safe and effective, and has helped more than 55,000 men and women around the world. Dr. Brueck is excited to offer this service to those in the Fort Myers, Florida, area who entrust him with their aesthetic needs.

How does miraDry work?

The miraDry system works by delivering concentrated electromagnetic energy to the sweat and odor glands located under your arms. That heat destroys the glands, preventing them from producing perspiration and odor.

Once destroyed, your glands don’t regenerate. That’s one of the biggest benefits of miraDry; the procedure is a permanent solution to a problem many men and women have been living with for years.

What happens during miraDry treatments?

Your appointment will take around an hour, and you’ll be seated in a reclined position for most of that time. The process begins with numbing injections to keep you comfortable throughout the session.

A handheld device is moved across the treatment area. The miraDry system uses special technology to keep the surface of your skin cool even while heat is working to destroy sweat and odor glands in the deeper tissue layers.

The experience is painless, and you may feel no sensations at all. Some men and women report a sensation of warmth during treatments, and you can always communicate any discomfort to your practitioner if needed.

What’s the recovery process like after miraDry?

Minor swelling, redness, and increases sensitivity are all normal in the hours after your miraDry appointment. Over-the-counter pain medications and ice packs can reduce discomfort and swelling. You can resume normal activities immediately after your session, but it’s a good idea to wait several days before any exercise or other vigorous activity.

A small number of men and women experience short-term changes in sensation under their arms after miraDry treatment. These sensations gradually fade, and there is no indication of any risk of long-term side effects.
