HOW IT WORKS

miraDry Technology and How It Works

miraDry works by harnessing electromagnetic energy to eliminate or damage sweat glands in order to treat excessive sweating, as well as targeting specifically foul-smelling sweat. While this technology has only recently been approved for this use, its beneficial use in a slew of other medical procedures, ranging from cardiology to general surgery to oncology and dozens of other applications, has been established as safe for many years.

miraDry is performed using a non-invasive handheld device that safely delivers precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to a targeted area underneath the surface of the skin in the axillary or underarm region, causing thermolysis, a process by which tissue breaks down as a consequence of heat, to damage or destroy the actual sweat glands.  During the treatment, while the sweat glands below the skin’s surface are being broken down through heat, the top outer layers of skin are simultaneously being cooled and protected. Because sweat glands do not usually grow back once they are destroyed, the effect of this treatment is practically immediate, with results that may be considered permanent. While some patients may efficiently alleviate the condition of axillary hyperhidrosis in only one treatment, optimal results are achieved when a total of two procedures are performed, ideally spaced three months apart. In some cases, a third treatment may be required.

The miraDry procedure is simple and safe, and usually takes about one hour or less. Dr. Bachilo uses local anesthesia such as lidocaine injections, to numb the area before applying the treatment. Most patients report little to no discomfort during the procedure and no need for downtime after treatment.

Some miraDry patients may experience swelling, redness, and tenderness in the underarms that may last for a few days, as well as a sensation of numbness and tingling in the upper arm or armpit that may last for several weeks. To alleviate any discomfort or soreness, ice packs and over-the-counter pain medication should suffice. While most patients are able to resume regular activities immediately following the procedure, Dr. Bachilo may recommend holding off on strenuous exercise for several days.

miraDry Clinical Trials and Results

A study published in 2013 in the Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy demonstrated the efficacy of miraDry at treating both axillary hyperhidrosis and axillary osmidrosis, the medical name for foul-smelling sweat. Eleven patients were observed during this study, treated with miraDry, and evaluated 7 months after the initial procedure to determine if symptoms had improved. Using a Hyperhidrosis Disease Severity Scale (HDSS) to measure the results, 83% of patients treated for axillary hyperhidrosis demonstrated an improvement in the condition, and of those that were treated specifically to eliminate foul odor or osmidrosis, almost 94% demonstrated results that were classified as good or excellent.

Megan Shea

Dr. Bachilo is an incredible doctor and has a very friendly and kind personality. I had been to many plastic surgeons and none made me feel comfortable and respected the way she did when talking with her. I will continue to see her no matter where I am in the U.S. - Google

Dr. Bachilo is excellent bedside manner.
cathouston

Dr. Bachilo performed this procedure on me in March 2019. I am a 50-year-old female, 5‘4“, 170 pounds. Dr. Bachilo removed 10 L of fat, which is a very aggressive surgery. I felt comfortable with her, and asked her to push the limits, which she did. I spent the night in the hospital as a precaution as my blood pressure dropped and needed to be stabilized and monitored. Dr. Bachilo is excellent bedside manner. She checked on me several times during the day and night before I left. I am now 8 days post-op and pleased with the results. - RealSelf

She has been wonderful
Lindsey Coats

Dr. Bachilo has now completed an arm lift and thigh lift for me. She has been wonderful with me through both procedures and her work is remarkable. I have asked a lot of her throughout both procedures that are difficult enough without me asking her to go above and beyond. She continues to deliver truly incredible results. - Google

I Am so Thankful We Found Olga!
Elvira V.

I am so thankful we found Olga! She has changed my life! I've gotten breast augmentation with Olga, I went to 3 different surgeons for a consultation and the moment I met Olga my mom and I both knew she was the one. She was so personal, warm and made me feel like my concerns were her priority! She was always there for me, before and after the surgery. Answering my late night texts and making sure I was in a good place. My mom has also gotten treatments at their med spa and she couldn't be happier with her results. All the staff are very sweet, kind and welcoming! I would highly recommend this place! - Yelp
