miraDry--At SC's only treatment center for hyperhidrosis

Freedom from Embarrassing Sweat!

"Hey Jenny, I'm so excited today. I have wanted to wear this shirt without a sweater or coat over it for over a year - but I would not because of the sweat stains. As you can see- after a long 10 hr stressful workday I am sweat stain free. I'm doing well. I just wanted you Dr. White, and Claudia to know - Thank You!"   - Joeseph K. from Charleston

miraDry is the groundbreaking device that was approved by the FDA in late 2011 for treatment of the axillary region.  This non-invasive procedure with relatively no down time has been proven to provide an average of 96% reduction in underarm sweating and a 90% satisfaction rate among patients studied, as well as a 92% worth it rating on Realself.com.  Because it targets both Eccrine and Apocrine glands, patients not only experience a drastic reduction in sweat production but also a significant reduction in odor.  Sweat glands do not grow back, so this is a lasting procedure that has already changed thousands of lives!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the miraDry procedure?

The miraDry procedure is safe and clinically proven to provide a significant reduction of underarm sweat.  The procedure is quick, non-invasive and performed in your physician’s office. The miraDry System delivers precisely controlled energy to the region where the underarm sweat glands reside and eliminates sweat glands non-invasively. The sweat glands don’t grow back once eliminated, resulting in a dramatic and lasting reduction of underarm sweat. 

What happens during the miraDry procedure?

The clinician customizes treatment for each underarm with multiple placements of the miraDry System.  The underarms are numbed prior to the procedure for your comfort. The procedure
typically takes an hour. 

What happens after the procedure?

You can expect minimal to no downtime following the procedure. Your physician will likely recommend a mild over-the-counter pain medication and use of ice packs for a few days. You should be able to return to normal activities or work right after the procedure, and you can typically resume exercise within several days. Some localized soreness or swelling is normal, and typically clears within a few weeks. Some patients have temporary, short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears.

What results can I expect?

Most patients report a dramatic reduction of their underarm sweat – in a recent clinical study, the average underarm sweat reduction was 96%. You should see a reduction in sweat immediately after treatment. Two procedures spaced three months apart are required to maximize the results and duration.  As with any medical procedure, results will vary by person.

How long will the results last?

The results are lasting because the sweat glands do not come back or regenerate after they have been eliminated. The miraDry procedure uses a safe, non-invasive technology that is FDA cleared to eliminate sweat glands in the underarm.

Don’t I need my underarm sweat glands?

Your body contains over 4 million sweat glands, with only about 2% located in the underarms. Eliminating this 2% will not affect the body’s ability to cool itself.

What parts of my body can the miraDry System treat?

The miraDry System is indicated for use of treatment of excessive underarm sweat (primary axillary hyperhidrosis) in adults 18 and over. It cannot be used to treat excessive sweating elsewhere on the body, including the hands and feet.

How is the miraDry procedure different from other treatment options?

Other treatment options are designed to temporarily disable the sweat glands, or involve surgery which contains inherent risks. Only the miraDry procedure provides a lasting solution with a non-invasive procedure.

Is the miraDry procedure right for me?

If embarrassing underarm sweat outbreaks, stained clothing or frequent antiperspirant application interfere with your daily life, then you may be a good candidate for the miraDry procedure. Talk with Dr. White to see if the miraDry procedure is right for you.

What is the cost of the miraDry treatment at Don't Sweat It?

Since two treatments are recommended to achieve the average of 96% reduction.  The cost for both treatments up front, which includes the initial consultation with our Board Certified Neurologist at a rate of $3000.  If you pay for each treatment individually, then the first is $2000 and the second would be $1000.
