On Average, 82% of clients achieve permanent sweat and odor reduction in only one or two treatments.
Testimonial: I’m not one for doctors or dentists, but this procedure had to happen. Prior to the Miradry procedure, my under arm perspiration was more than embarrassing. Now, I can lift my arms with full confidence! Dr. Silberg and his entire staff were outstanding! I felt right at home. It took about 2 hours for me, but it was 2 hours filled with great conversation and laughter. This is important because I wince every time I get my teeth cleaned. It was over before I knew it. Additionally, recovery was a piece of cake. It feels weird at first, but you get over it in no time. I’ve noticed a significant reduction in under arm sweat and an improvement of life! I strongly recommend Miradry! ~ Stephen L.

Don’t I need sweat glands? Not in your armpits! You are born with approximately 2 million sweat glands throughout your body. Your underarms only contain about 2% of those glands. With miraDry, you will experience the many benefits of stopping sweat in the underarm area, but you will continue to sweat elsewhere.
Safety & Side Effects: The miraDry® treatment offered at Dr. Silberg’s Santa Rosa office has a strong safety record. It has been extensively tested and is FDA cleared to permanently eliminate underarm sweating and odor. As of 2016, over 60,000 miraDry® treatments have been successfully given worldwide. Some localized soreness or swelling will occur, which will typically clear within a few weeks. Some patients have short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears. You may also experience a 30% to 70% reduction in underarm hair, depending on whether you need one or two treatments, which will be long-lasting or permanent.
Candidates: You do not have to have a problem with excessive sweating to benefit from miraDry® treatments at Dr. Silberg’s Santa Rosa office. miraDry® is for anyone who experiences the inconvenience and embarrassment caused by underarm sweating or for people who don’t want to use antiperspirants or deodorants
The Procedure: Most patients describe the procedure as painless. Local anesthesia is administered to the underarms prior to the treatment to assist in increasing comfort. Some patients describe the initial anesthetic injections as the most painful part of the procedure. There are no incisions or cuts. Treatment is customized to each underarm with multiple placements of the miraDry® hand-piece. An office visit appointment will generally last about one hour. You can see results in as little as one treatment. However, as with any aesthetic treatment, Dr. Silberg will determine the best protocol for your expected results.
Recovery: Most patients experience minimal downtime and return to regular activity (like returning to work) immediately. Exercise is typically resumed within several days. You may experience swelling, numbness, bruising and sensitivity in the underarm area for several days post-treatment. Sometimes lumps will appear under the arms after treatment that can last for a few weeks. After a week or two these lumps not visually noticeable and there is little to no sensitivity.
Results: You can expect immediate and lasting results – sweat glands don’t come back after treatment. The amount of sweat reduction you desire should be discussed with your miraDry® physician. Recent clinical information confirms an average of 82% sweat reduction in most patients. (By comparison, over-the-counter antiperspirants are about 20% effective, and clinical antiperspirants are about 30% effective, and they must be reapplied throughout the day to maintain their effectiveness.) As with any aesthetic treatment, results will vary by person. While many patients achieve their desired result in just one treatment, some may require an additional treatment, especially with those who sweat profusely.
How miraDry® Works: miraDry® uses focused energy that is the ideal wavelength for eliminating the sweat and odor glands in the underarm. It non-invasively targets the area where the glands reside and safely destroys them while cooling the skin. See how the miraDry® works at Dr. Silberg’s Santa Rosa office:
