miraDry Sweat Treatment
miraDry is a revolutionary non-surgical treatment that reduces underarm sweat on average by over 80% in just one session. It’s suitable for those with hyperhidrosis (clinically excessive sweating) or for those who just wish to reduce sweat for lifestyle reasons. The results are permanent, immediate and most patients describe the treatment as pain free with pretty much no downtime. You’ll be in the clinic for just 90 minutes or so, then up and away.

How It Works
Sweat Treatment Process
Step 1After our aesthetician Rachael marks out the area to be treated, Dr Grant uses local anaesthetic to numb the entire area. This part is a little uncomfortable. Rachael applies a temporary tattoo to the underarm, and then places the miraDry handpiece on the skin, lining it up with the first line on the tattoo.
Step 2Rachael activates the handpiece. Gentle suction pulls the skin and sweat glands closer to the handpiece surface to give optimum results.
Step 3Thermal energy is delivered which destroys the sweat glands, whilst at the same time a cooling system protects the skin. This phase is typically pain free.
Frequently Asked Questions
We aim to answer all your questions before your treatment. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us or book a consultation to discuss your personalised treatment.
Don't I need sweat glands?
The body needs to sweat to allow cooling to take place. However, of the 2-4 million sweat glands that cover the body, only around 2% lie in the armpits. This means that we can safely eliminate these, whilst keeping our ability to cool down.
How does it work?
miraDry uses thermal (heat) energy which destroys the sweat glands in the skin, permanently. These don’t grow back. .

How many treatments will I need?
How long does it take?
Usually patients are in the clinic for just 90 minutes
Is there any pain or downtime?
The whole process is usually described as painless. The local anaesthetic injections use tiny needles which are uncomfortable, but once the skin is numbed, the miraDry treatment itself is typically pain free. There is minimal downtime. There can be some swelling, bruising and discomfort afterwards, but most patients will return to work immediately and resume exercise after a few days.
