Underarm sweating while nervous or exercising is completely normal, but excessive perspiration that discolors your clothing and triggers a foul odor is actually a medical condition called hyperhidrosis. Timeless Plastic Surgery provides assistance with excessive underarm perspiration with the miraDry system. miraDry by Miramar Labs is FDA approved to target and destroy perspiration and odor glands from the underarms. Because you have roughly two million sweat glands spread over your body with approximately only 2% in your underarms, you can most definitely do without these. You'll likely enjoy your busy life more without being concerned about sweat marks, stickiness, deodorant streaks, and powerful smells. miraDry is a quick, nonsurgical process employed by Dr. Peter Chang to help Houston, TX patients rid their lives of underarm perspiration.
"sweat free-that's me! - I can't begin to explain how much of a lifesaver MiraDry was for me! I received one treatment with our Nurse and have been satisfied since. The procedure was pleasant- the numbing process and treatment itself is quick and very tolerable. I am able to work a whole day without clammy armpits under my uniform. It's such a relief to wear spring clothing without sleeves and not have to be hesitant about odor as well. MiraDry helped minimize my stress! I highly recommend this treatment."- Anonymous / Vitals / Apr 13, 2017

"Came here originally to find out more information on Miradry, and because they were absolutely competitively priced as compared to many other locations I called. The staff is extremely friendly and cordial. Making an appointment is a breeze. You do make a non refundable deposit for your appointment slot but I can understand that in today’s age. So I had my Miradry done with Kimberly Johnston. She was so informative and happily answered any and all of my questions before during and after procedure. So ecstatic about my Miradry results. Was told that because the severity of my hyperhydrosis it may take more than one. I am pleased to say, however, that one most definitely took care of it. I have also started coming in for my Botox with Dr. Chang. WOW is all I can say. This doctor hears what you have to say and clarifies what you want and goes based on your wants and needs and explains everything in full detail. I can’t recommend them highly enough. In fact I think I found the place for my breast lift &/or mommy makeover. I think I have found a true one stop shop for all my cosmetic surgery/aesthetic needs!"- K.J. / Google / Jun 22, 2018

miraDry will help anybody who wishes to take control of the perspiration and odor in their underarms. miraDry is an excellent option if you:
- Have persistent issues with excessive underarm perspiration
- Regularly have discoloration in the armpit area of your tops
- Wish to avoid the dangerous toxins and chemicals found in antiperspirant
- Are humiliated by the odor from your underarms
- Wish to feel fresher and cleaner
To begin your therapy, the region is cleaned, marked, then numbed using a topical anesthetic to help you feel comfortable throughout your treatment. Next, the miraDry wand will be passed across the skin, applying mild suction to pull the sweat glands nearer to the top layer of the skin. The miraWave tempered technology works on the perspiration and odor glands whereas the outer layer of the skin is kept cool with the applicator. Most sessions take approximately an hour, and you can relax comfortably during the procedure.
What to Expect
Following your therapy, your underarms may experience minor numbness, tingling, swelling, or soreness for a couple of days, but you'll have an instant decrease in underarm perspiration. Sweat glands don't grow back when they are eliminated, which means that your results will be long-lasting. To receive the best outcome possible, two sessions performed approximately 2 – 3 months apart are highly recommended. You may return to your daily activities immediately following your procedure, but it's ideal to avoid heavy activity, such as exercise, for about a week.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is it safe?
miraDry has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of hyperhidrosis, or excessive underarm sweat. As a very small number of your total sweat glands are found beneath the arms, it is very safe to remove the ones responsible for the condition (hyperhidrosis).
Am I a candidate for miraDry?
If you are a man or woman that is experiencing excessive and potentially embarrassing underarm sweat, miraDry treatments may be right for you. miraDry can also be used in other areas of the body. Ask Dr. Chang for more information about potential treatment areas.
How many treatments?
The majority of patients will need at least two treatments spaced 2 – 3 months apart, although many patients notice results after their first miraDry treatment. Clinical studies have shown that most patients will have an 80% reduction in underarm perspiration after their second treatment.
