miraDry – Underarm Sweat Treatment

While sweating helps to stabilize our body temperature when we are overheated, excessive underarm sweating is unnecessary, embarrassing, and can even ruin clothes. It’s time to say goodbye to your trashcan full of useless deodorants and sweat-stained clothes, and say hello to a permanent solution. We are one of a limited number of facilities in the Philadelphia area who offer exactly this, with the miraDry procedure.

How does miraDry work?

The miraDry destroys sweat glands in the underarms by delivering electromagnetic energy directly to the level of the skin that contains the sweat glands. Once the sweat glands are eradicated, they no longer produce sweat or odor. The procedure is performed in our office by our experienced aestheticians and takes about 2 hours.

What is the cost?

We have recently developed a new treatment protocol that enables us to eliminate underarm sweat and odor in a single treatment. However, if you suffer from Hyperhidrosis you may need a second treatment.

Price depends on the number of treatments you need to achieve desire results. Schedule a free cosmetic consultation to learn about expected cost.
