In addition to addressing lines, wrinkles, and unwanted body fat, Dr. Mesna is also pleased to offer miraDry®, a treatment for unsightly underarm sweating. Let's consider how this treatment works and how much it costs.

About miraDry®

miraDry® is a great, minimally invasive solution for people who suffer from embarrassing underarm perspiration. These unsightly stains and damp marks around the armpits can lead to high levels of self-consciousness, especially in social situations. With miraDry®, those unfortunate stains and the body odor that comes with perspiration are greatly reduced, and in many cases eliminated.

This Food and Drug Administration (FDA) treatment uses carefully channeled electromagnetic energy to target sweat glands under the arms and diminish their activity. The procedure is safe and effective, and will not impact your general wellness.

Ideal Candidates for miraDry®

The best candidates for miraDry® are people who suffer from issues with unwanted underarm odor. Typically these ideal candidates suffer from hyperhidrosis, a type of excessive sweating that affects roughly 3 percent of the population.

miraDry® should have a good understanding of the treatment process, including its risks and benefits. This helps ensure realistic expectations and patient satisfaction as well.

How Much Does miraDry® Cost?

The overall cost of miraDry® can range from $2,000 to $3,000, though this is based on a host of factors, including the location of the practice, special promotions at the practice, and other considerations regarding a patient's treatment needs. Typically this cost will cover two 60-minute sessions of miraDry®.

During your consultation at the practice, we will provide you with a custom price quote that takes various factors into account. This breakdown will help you make the best decision for your condition and your financial situation.

Is miraDry® Effective?

Yes, and quite so. In fact, many patients who have undergone miraDry® treatment feel that the cost if justified by how effective the procedure is at reducing the amount of sweat in the underarm area.

Will Insurance Cover the Cost of miraDry®?

In many cases no, but insurance policies and providers do vary. It's a good idea to check directly with your insurance provider to find out if miraDry® would be covered.

Financing Options for Medical Treatments

If the cost of miraDry® is prohibitively expensive for you and your needs, there are financing options that can put the treatment you need back within reach. These monthly installment plans operate much like a traditional loan, with the total cost of care broken up into affordable payment. There is a reasonable interest rate applied to the total cost of the procedure, but many patients are fine with this arrangement as it allows them to achieve their goals.

We'll be sure to provide you with ample information during the consultation process so you can make a confident choice in any decisions you make regarding miraDry® treatment.
