The Sweat and Odar stops here
In the axilla, eccrine and apocrine glands (the glands responsible for sweat and odor) and hair follicles are found in high density and varied depth at the dermal-fat interface. Peak temperatures in excess of 60°C throughout the entire volume of target tissue are required to achieve significant and permanent destruction of the glands. miraWave technology consistently delivers energy to the dermal-fat interface, allowing precise heating independent of skin thickness. With the miraDry® System, the energy is always delivered right where it is most effective.
No other technology provides the consistent density of energy delivery sufficient to destroy sweat and odor glands and hair to deliver superior results in as little as 1 treatment.
miraWave technology delivers 5.8 GHz microwave energy. The energy is reflected at the dermal-fat junction and becomes concentrated, creating a focal energy zone.
- Nearly all sweat and odor glands reside at the dermal-fat interface
- Focused heating is independent of skin thickness, hair color or skin color
Continuous hydroceramic cooling protects the dermis while heat continues to spread down into the region where sweat glands reside
- Sweat and odor glands and hair follicles are destroyed in the heat zone

The miraDry Treatment has been proven, in multiple rigorously controlled studies and in over 70,000 commercial treatments, to deliver excellent efficacy, a strong safety profile, and high patient satisfaction.
Patient A: partial treatment. Post-treatment starch iodine tests demonstrate dramatic and permanent sweat reduction.
Patient is nearly sweat free in the area treated but continues to sweat in the area untreated.
Published studies demonstrate destruction and elimination of sweat and odor glands and permanent reduction of sweat.
Human histology illustrates sweat gland destruction.
Normal sweat glands
Sweat gland cells devoid of nuclei – complete celluar necroisis
10 days POST-TREATMENT sample
No sweat glands
180 days POST-TREATMENT sample
“The ontogenesis of sweat glands is only at the embryonic period, so no new sweat glands are regenerated after birth.”1 Therefore, results are permanent.
Long-term studies demonstrate that miraDry® is effective for permanent reduction of sweat2.
Long-term findings of approximately 70% reduction in underarm hair in patients in both light and dark axillary hair was seen, and is stable through 12 months of follow-up3.
Average Hair Reduction from Quantitative Assessment for each follow-up visit. Results for light and dark hair are broken out separately for the initial 3m and final 12m visits.
Results of side-by-side qualitative analysis per axilla. Percentage of axilla where the blinded reviewer correctly chose the baseline photo (green bars); % where assessor rated the reduction as being at least 50% (blue bars).
