Are you bothered by excessive underarm perspiration and sweat? Embarrassed about your body odor? Hate the underarm stains on your shirts? Tired of using deodorants and antiperspirants? miraDry® is the only FDA approved non-invasive treatment to treat excessive underarm sweat and odor permanently. Dr. Stewart Wang is one of the earliest doctors offering miraDry® in Pasadena and Inland Empire helping patients to eliminate these life-time frustrations and embarrassing moments, getting your confidence back in your personal relations or social settings.
miraDry® uses the proprietary miraWave™ technology. miraDry® is proven to reduce underarm sweat by delivering localized heat with the use of precisely controlled microwave energy to target the areas where the eccrine sweat glands reside, and thermally impacts and eliminates the apocrine glands that are responsible for bad body odor. Once those glands are destroyed they do not grow back, and are gone for good.
If you'd like to raise your arms freely, save on dry cleaning bills to constantly get rid of sweat stains and chalky marks left by deodorant, and never to be bothered by those embarrassing moments again, now is the perfect time to schedule a miraDry® consultation with Dr. Wang at our Pasadena, and Upland plastic surgery offices, serving Southern California including Pasadena and the Inland Empire. To understand your treatment options, request a consultation online or call Wang Plastic Surgery at (888) 360-6688 today to schedule your appointment.
How Does miraDry® work?
miraDry treatment is as easy as 1, 2, 3:
- Clean and numb underarm
- miraDry® handpiece will be placed directly on your skin, feeling a slight suction as your skin
- miraWave™ energy is delivered
- Results are immediate
Does miraDry® treatment hurt?
Initially, you may feel a slight stinging from the lidocaine injections. Once the area is numb, the treatment is fairly comfortable, although some patients may occasionally feel a warm area or “hot spot” during treatment.
How long is the miraDry® procedure?
Prepping, numbing, and treatment is about one hour.
What’s the miraDry® downtime?
Depending on what your typical day is like, downtime can be minimal to none. Most patients return to regular activity (like returning to work) immediately. Exercise and vigorous activity is typically resumed within several days. You may experience discomfort in your armpits for several days post treatment.
How many miraDry® treatments will I need?
You will see results in as little as one treatment. However, as with any other treatments, Dr. Wang will determine the best treatment plan for your desired results.
