Underarm sweating when you’re exercising or are nervous is normal, but excessive sweating that stains your clothes and causes an embarrassing odor is a medical condition known as hyperhidrosis. Just The Right Curves offers treatment for excessive underarm sweating using the miraDry system. miraDry from Miramar Labs is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to safely target and eliminate sweat and odor glands in the underarm area. Since you have about two million sweat glands spread over your body with about only 2% in the armpits, you can easily live without these. You'll get to enjoy an active lifestyle without worrying about wet marks, deodorant streaks, stickiness, and strong odors. miraDry is a fast, noninvasive procedure chosen by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kirk Moore to help Midvale, UT patients free themselves from underarm sweat.

"I'm 1 day post breast-aug surgery and can't believe how incredible this experience has been! I was in at noon, out by 1:30, then out carpooling tots by 6pm, and out to dinner with friends by 8pm last night.Did stretches every hour, as directed by the doc and it mostly just feels like I've had a good pectoral workout. Advil and Tylenol this morning, and I'm up, showered, dressed and back to work today with full energy, and a fresh set of pretty breasts. (A little swollen still, looks like I could nurse 1000 baby kittens, but that'll subside with time).What a fantastic experience this has been from start to finish. My only regret? That I didn't do it 10 years ago. Dr. Moore has eighty-two thumbs up from this girl. Whod've guessed surgery could be so seamless?Thanks Just the Right Curves!"- B.L. / Google / Jan 31, 2019

miraDry can help anyone who wants to control the sweat and odor from their underarms. This treatment is an excellent solution if you:
- Have consistent problems with excessive underarm sweat
- Frequently have stains in the underarm area of your shirts
- Want to avoid the harsh chemicals and toxins in deodorant
- Are embarrassed by the odor caused by your armpits
- Want to feel cleaner and fresher
To initiate your treatment, the area is marked, cleaned, and then numbed with a topical anesthetic to make you more comfortable during your procedure. Next, the miraDry device will be passed over the skin, using light suction to bring the sweat glands closer to the surface of the skin. The miraWave heated energy works on the sweat and odor glands while the surface of your skin is kept cool by the device to protect and soothe it. Most treatments take about one hour, and you will be allowed to relax comfortably throughout the process.
What to Expect
After your treatment, your underarm area may have temporary swelling, soreness, numbness, or tingling for a few days. However, you will have an immediate reduction in underarm sweat following your procedure. Sweat glands do not come back once they are destroyed so your results will be long-term. To obtain the best results possible, two treatments spaced about 2 – 3 months apart are often recommended. You can resume normal activities right after your treatment, but it is best to avoid any strenuous activity (like exercise) for a few days.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does miraDry cost?
The cost of your miraDry treatment will depend on the number of sessions required to achieve your ideal goals. Because it is not always easy to pinpoint exactly where sweat and odor glands may exist, multiple treatments can be recommended to ensure a more total removal.
Is miraDry right for me?
Both men and women who suffer from excessive sweating could benefit from this treatment. If your sweating difficulties cause you stress or anxiety, then it may be worthwhile to consider this procedure.
How many treatments will I need?
While results are very noticeable following your first miraDry session, clinical studies have shown that most clients will experience up to an 80% reduction in underarm perspiration after a second treatment. Most potential patients will require at least two miraDry sessions spaced about 3 months apart.
Is miraDry safe?
This treatment is a safe, FDA-approved solution for excessive underarm sweating. Because only 2% of your body's total sweat glands are located in the underarm, you are only losing a small percentage of odor glands and only in the targeted area.
How long will my results last?
Because thermal energy targets and destroys the sweat and odor glands in your underarms through the process of this procedure, your results will be very long-lasting. These eliminated glands cannot grow back.
