MiraDry (Sweat reduction)


What is MiraDry?

Forsyth Plastic Surgery is the first practice in the area to offer miraDry – the only FDA-approved one-time permanent treatment for underarm sweating. The treatment is safe and effective, and most patients will never need deodorants again. Microwave energy targets the sweat glands to permanently reduce up to 80% of sweating, hair and odor in just one treatment. Your underarm sweat glands produce odor and only make up 2% of all your overall sweat glands. You will continue to sweat normally elsewhere.

What to expect:

You will have a consultation with one of our plastic surgeons to ensure that you are a good candidate for MiraDry. You will then meet with Gina, our aesthetician, to discuss the treatment in more detail. You may have some discomfort with the initial numbing but will not have any pain during the actual MiraDry treatment. The treatment takes about an hour with immediate results and no downtime.


Most patients return to regular activity or work immediately. You may have some swelling under your arms for a few weeks but may take longer to completely resolve. MiraDry has been used in over 85,000 treatments worldwide with an excellent safety record. There are no reports of permanent side effects.
