MiraDry FAQ

Atlanta GA Treatment for Excessive Sweating

Do you struggle with excessive underarm sweat? Are you tired of pit-stained shirts or avoiding certain social events due to your sweating problem? Not only is there a solution, but it may be easier than you think. MiraDry is a one-of-a-kind treatment for excessive underarm sweat, also known as axillary hyperhidrosis. Using the advanced technology of this in-office, non-surgical treatment, we can permanently eliminate sweat and odor glands in the underarm region. MiraDry uses microwave energy to destroy unneeded sweat glands as well as a special cooling mechanism to soothe and protect the skin.

If you are considering miraDry, it is understandable to have questions. From what to expect during the procedure itself to what you can anticipate in terms of results, here are some answers to some frequently asked questions about miraDry:

What can I expect during the procedure?

Prior to your treatment, we will apply local anesthesia to numb the underarm area. Most procedures last about an hour, but this will depend on your unique needs and concerns. After the treatment session, you may return to normal activities. Exercise or strenuous physical activity should be avoided for the first few days.

Are there any side effects or recovery symptoms I should be aware of?

After the treatment you may experience soreness, swelling, tingling or numbness in the area. This is only temporary and should dissipate within the following several days. To date, there are no permanent side effects associated with miraDry.

Are the results immediate?

Yes, you should notice a significant reduction in underarm sweat right away. Your sweat glands can’t regrow, so once they are destroyed, you can expect permanent relief from hyperhidrosis.

Don’t I need sweat glands?

While it is true that your body needs sweat glands to properly cool itself, it is not imperative to have the sweat glands in your arm pits. In fact, only 2% of your body’s total sweat glands are found in your underarm.

Is miraDry safe and effective for all skin types?

Yes – the advanced technology of miraDry is color-blind so the type and shade of your skin does not affect the effectiveness of the treatment.

Do I have to sweat excessively in order to qualify for miraDry?

MiraDry can be used for anyone who want to sweat less and “smell” less under their arms. If you have trouble finding a deodorant or antiperspirant to work or last through the day, you may be a candidate for miraDry.

The doctors and PA’s are great and very knowledgeable. I never have to wait to long and the office staff is always very nice. I also take my son there and they are great with him as well. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology.

Kristen R.

Olansky Dermatology is wonderful! Our whole family goes. My daughter has had terrible eczema through the years and both my kids had mollescum too. They always make things better and spend time explaining whats wrong and how to fix it.

Mike D.

I recently had a couple appointments at Olanksy Dermatology and was seen by Julia Lee. Julie was excellent and quickly took care of the issue I was having with my skin. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology and especially Julia Lee to anyone in need of a dermatologist.

I was actually running a bit late, but they were very friendly and knowledgeable about what was going on with my skin. And also very timely.I will definitely stick with them!

Khol S.

Very professional and pleasant staff. When I arrived at my appointment this afternoon I was informed that my doctor called out sick and they tried calling to let me know but I just recently changed my number so they were unable to reach me. The receptionist was so sweet and helpful. Instead of leaving and making a new appointment they fit me in without an issue and without any waiting.

Susan H.

Dr. Ilyas was highly recommended to me so I decided to change dermatologists. I am so glad as I am pleased with his expertise and his highly professional manner. I am also delighted with Emily Raville, Aesthetician. She does a wonderful job and I am recommending her to my friends as well. I am completely satisfied – can’t get any better than that!

Lindsay S.

I have been going to Olansky Dematology for many years now, whether for a specific problem, or just for a really great deep facial, and I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. Every single staff member is knowledgeable and professional. The customer service I receive every visit leaves a positive and lasting impression. I always feel comfortable and at ease while I am there. Great staff!

Janet R.

I seem to live at this place! Whether it’s for an appointment with a doctor or for an aesthetic treatment, I am there frequently. I cannot say enough good things. Efficient, friendly, the best doctors, and a new aesthetic center with the latest in procedures and products to keep us looking almost as young as we feel. It’s always fun to see Emily and she knows just what to recommend.
