MiraDry Microwave Ablation of Sweat Glands
Our clinic provides MiraDry microwave ablation of sweat glands* for patients with hyperhidrosis and bromhidrosis.

The treatment is clinically proven to achieve 82% reduction of underarm sweat on average#. Noticeable results can be seen after one treatment, with 70%-80% improvement after two sessions. The treatment is safe with low complication rate. The treatment is done by certified plastic surgeons or dermatologists.
