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.
"I simply cannot say enough great things about my experience with Dr. Ankur Mehta and Timeless Plastic Surgery overall. I've seen Dr. Mehta for the past two years for Botox, fillers, Emsculpt and MiraDry. Each procedure was explained in detail so there were no surprises and the results were better and more natural than I even hoped for. For my lips he had a different injection technique that prevented the "duck lip" look that commonly results from other methods. I trusted his advice and am so glad I did! I'm absolutely in love with the results! My lips are very full and pouty yet still have a natural look to them. He also used a very powerful topical numbing cream that worked like a charm. Everyone at TPS is extremely friendly and truly cares about achieving great results. I highly recommend Dr. Mehta and Timeless and as an actress I see why it's the go-to in Houston for cosmetic plastic surgery!"- E.K. / Yelp / Apr 23, 2020
"I recently went to see Dr. Mehta for some issues that had started bothering me post-40. Dr. Mehta and his staff, especially Kaitlin, were so welcoming and warm. They made me feel very comfortable and spent the time to explain my options and the cost associated with each. Dr. Mehta has checked in on me several times after the visit, which was very much appreciated! And most importantly, great results!"- M.T. / Google / Jan 25, 2020

miraDry Procedure Technique
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 with miraDry®
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.

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).
