miraDry® & Hyperhidrosis

Many people sweat when they are nervous or overly-heated. However, if you find that you are sweating all the time, you may be suffering from hyperhidrosis, a medical condition that causes exaggerated sweating. Even the word “hyperhidrosis” means “too much sweating.”

Patients who have hyperhidrosis sweat when the body does not need to cool down, which often leads to embarrassing and unwanted sweat marks on clothing. Skin infections can also occur when the skin is regularly wet. Dr. Brueck offers miraDry®, a quick and non-invasive procedure to significantly reduce underarm sweat. 

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 distributes concentrated, accurate, and controlled electromagnetic energy to the underarm where sweat and odor glands exist. This energy heats the sweat glands, eliminating them permanently and 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.

Dr. Brueck creates a customized treatment for each underarm, depending on where your sweat glands are located and how significant you’re sweating. Two treatments are recommended, each three months apart for optimal results.

What can I expect during a miraDry treatment?

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.

Some men and women report a sensation of warmth during treatments, and you can always communicate any discomfort to your practitioner if needed.

Since this treatment is performed under local anesthesia, patients experience little pain. Most patients experience minimal pressure and pulling on the skin, with warming sensations. They may feel an occasional “hot spot”, but they are brief and often well tolerated. Patients describe the discomfort as around 2 on a scale of 10, with 10 being the highest.

How is miraDry different from other treatment options?

Other treatment options, such as antiperspirants and toxins, only strive to restrict sweat glands for a certain length of time, and require repeat applications or treatments for long-lasting effects. Surgery for excessive sweating can also come with complications. miraDry® is the only non-invasive  treatment that can provide long-lasting results.

How long is recovery from a miraDry treatment?

There is minimal to no downtime after this treatment. Dr. Brueck will recommend an over-the-counter pain medical for any mild discomfort, as well as the use of ice packs for a couple days. Patients should be able to return to their everyday activities, as well as work directly after treatment, and exercise can be resumed after several days.

Minor swelling, redness, and increases sensitivity are all normal in the hours after your miraDry appointment. 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.
