miraDry® for Hyperhidrosis in Portland, OR
Stop Excessive Sweating
Millions of people suffer from excessive sweating, known medically as hyperhidrosis. Portland’s The Waldorf Center offers a simple, nonsurgical solution for anyone tired of soaking shirts, constant applications of antiperspirant, and otherwise dealing with an excess of underarm sweat. The treatment, miraDry®, is cleared by the FDA to destroy sweat and odor glands, preventing them from further contributing to the problem of hyperhidrosis. Results are noticeable right away, and destroyed sweat glands don’t grow back, so the benefits are lifelong.

Why Choose miraDry® for Hyperhidrosis in Portland?
Patients struggling with hyperhidrosis are often fed up with the expense of deodorant and other topical, temporary remedies to excessive sweat. They often also cite the embarrassment of frequently visible wet spots and the discomfort of chafing due to damp clothes. The treatment destroys the glands responsible for both moisture and odor, so both are reduced after a session.
With miraDry®, there are no incisions or sutures, so there is no down time necessary for recovery. The hyperhidrosis treatment is handled in the office, and you can return to your daily activities immediately afterward.
Your miraDry® Consultation
At The Waldorf Center, our team puts a high priority on ensuring patients are well informed about the details of their chosen treatment. You will receive a thorough consultation that allows us to understand your unique concerns and condition, as well as explain what miraDry® can do for men and women experiencing hyperhidrosis. You are encouraged to ask any questions necessary for you to feel comfortable with your decision to move forward with hyperhidrosis treatment.
The miraDry® Procedure
Hyperhidrosis treatment begins with the application of a customized temporary template to your underarm area, which will guide the miraDry® device operator. The targeted area will also be numbed to dull sensation. Once in position and activated, the hand-piece will draw the tissue upward, pulling the skin and unwanted glands close. As the surface is kept cool, energy is delivered deeper into the skin as heat, which destroys the sweat glands.
You can go home once your hyperhidrosis treatment is finished. Since the glands are destroyed during the session, they will cease to produce sweat from that moment on. Results are noticeable after a single treatment, though some patients may find that multiple treatments are necessary to get their ideal results.
Note that there are about 2 million sweat glands located all over the body, with only two percent of them sitting in the underarm area. Destroying the glands there will not significantly impact your body’s ability to cool itself, as there will still be millions to handle temperature regulation.
Patients seeking a dry underarm area may also consider laser hair removal to reduce unwanted underarm hair, making shaving or waxing unnecessary for the future.
For body contouring in this area, CoolSculpting® can be used to non-surgically destroy unwanted fat cells that contribute to bra back fat—and elsewhere on the body.
