With One of Our Excessive Sweating Treatments You Can
Rediscover Your True Look at DermMedica
The first date, the big presentation, hanging out with friends and family – in these situations you shouldn’t be stressing about wet armpits and what people are thinking. It normally starts in the teenage years and never really improves throughout someone’s life, but there are solutions. Today, with miraDry, we can permanently reduce underarm sweating with a non-invasive treatment that has little downtime. DermMedica is at the forefront of these technologies and can help you make the best decision for your specific needs.
miraDry® is a new generation of technology that is only available in physician’s offices for the permanent reduction of sweat and odor glands on those people bothered by their underarm sweat. It’s a quick, 1-hour in-office procedure providing immediate and lasting permanent results with minimal to no downtime.
How miraDry Works
miraDry uses microwave energy which is shown by research to be the ideal method to treat sweat and odor glands in the underarm. It creates targeted heat in the area where glands reside and safely eliminates them. The advanced design of the miraDry system continuously cools your skin during the procedure for added comfort and safety. miraDry is for everyone!

Staff is also excellent!!! Thank you." – Harold Elliot
"I had excellent results with a Coolsculpting operation at this clinic. Dr. Crippen took me through everything I wanted to know before we started, and I was still surprised at how easy it was. It took a little longer than I would have liked for the results to kick in, but I didn’t change anything and I lost weight." – Ami Hamann
