Testimonials

Here’s what some of Athens Vein and Thoracic Specialists patients are saying about miraDry®


For years I would literally sweat through a shirt and jacket, so much so I underwent surgery to remove sweat glands under my armpits. For many years this seemed to do the trick, although I was left with unsightly scars. While as a man the scars did not bother me, I can’t imagine a woman feeling okay with them.

However, in the last few years, my sweating started to return and I would have been willing to go through surgery again but heard about this new non-surgical treatment. I was somewhat skeptic but after two treatments, no more sweating. The treatments were really easy, with minimal discomfort. In fact the hardest part was holding my arms above my head!!…. S. Saunders


Love not having to use deodorant every day. I think what most surprised me, was just how easy the treatment was and the nurse taking care of me was just wonderful!! ….S. Ruddle

Frequently Asked Questions

Don’t 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.  Eliminating this 2% of sweat glands does not affect your body’s ability to cool itself. With miraDry, you will 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 create heat in the area where bothersome sweat, odor, and hair glands reside and safely eliminates them.

What results can I expect? You can expect immediate and lasting results.  Once the miraDry treatment eliminates the sweat, odor, and hair glands, they’re gone for good.   The treatment is clinically proven to have an average of 82% 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? An office visit appointment will generally last about one hour.

Is there any pain or downtime?  Local anesthesia is administered to the underarms prior to the treatment for patient comfort.  Most patients describe the procedure as painless with little to no 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.

Are there any side effects? Some localized soreness or swelling will 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.
