What is miraDry?
Imagine freedom from antiperspirant, deodorant, and shaving.
miraDry is a revolutionary non-surgical treatment that reduces underarm sweat, odor, and hair in just one hour! miraDry is the only FDA-cleared treatment that can permanently treat excessive sweat. Over 100,000 miraDry treatments have been performed worldwide.
miraDry uses precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to target sweat and odor glands in the underarm area. A buildup of heat energy will eliminate sweat glands to dramatically reduce underarm sweat and the unpleasant odor that often accompanies it. Since sweat glands are found with the hair follicles, removing these glands also means you can eliminate unwanted underarm hair. This treatment is performed under local anesthesia to minimize any discomfort you might feel.
FDA-cleared • Immediate Results • As Little As One Treatment

Results and Recovery
After your miraDry treatment, the skin under your arms may be sensitive so you should avoid shaving or applying deodorant for a few days. You should also wear loose-fitting tops and avoid exercise or strenuous activity for a few days after treatment. After one procedure, you will immediately notice sweat reduction, and the results are clinically proven to be long-lasting.
Frequently Asked Questions
Dont I need sweat glands?
While your body does need sweat glands to cool itself, your body has 2-4 million sweat glands – only about 2% are found in your underarms. Reducing this percentage of sweat glands does not affect your body’s ability to cool itself. With miraDry, you can experience the many benefits of reducing sweat in the underarm area, but you will continue to sweat in other areas of your body.
How does it work?
miraDry uses thermal energy to heat the areas in question where the sweat, odor, and hair glands reside in order to safely reduce them, thus solving excessive sweating and odor.
What results can I expect?
You may see immediate and lasting results. miraDry treatment combats the sweat, odor, and hair glands, and results can be long-lasting. This treatment is clinically proven to have an average of 82% in sweat reduction. As with any aesthetic treatment results, patient results and experience may vary.
How many treatments will I need?
You can see results in as little as one treatment. However, as with any aesthetic treatment, your physician will determine the best protocol for your desired results.
How long does it take?
The treatment at Dr. Basile’s office in Jacksonville will typically take about one hour.
Is there any pain or downtime?
Most patients describe the procedure as having little-to-no pain and little-to-no downtime with most people returning to regular activities (like work) quickly. Exercise and working out is typically resumed within several days of treatment. Local anesthesia is administered to the underarms prior to the treatment for the patients’ comfort. You may experience swelling, numbness, bruising, and sensitivity in the underarm area for several days post-treatment.
Are there any side effects?
Some localized soreness or swelling will likely occur, and typically clears within a few weeks. Some patients have short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears.
How much does it cost?
Pricing can vary depending on the treatment protocol to achieve your desired results and will be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Basile.
