El Paso Cosmetic Surgery recently announced that it now offers miraDry, a procedure that eliminates unsightly sweat stains, odor and perspiration under the arms. miraDray is a non-invasive and FDA-cleared treatment that permanently eliminates the sweat and odor glands that are located in the underarm area. As only two percent of the body's sweat glands are in this area, this poses no risk to the patient. The procedure has been performed successfully more than 30,000 times worldwide.
The procedure delivers precisely controlled electromagnetic impulses to the underarm area that completely eliminate the underarm sweat glands. Most patients see an immediate 82 percent reduction in underarm sweat, and many find that they have no more need for deodorants, sprays or chemicals.
The procedure can be performed with a local anesthetic so that there is no discomfort. Patients usually return to regular activities almost immediately after treatment.
