MiraDry Treatment Bend, OR

What is miraDry?

miraDry is the only non-invasive, FDA cleared treatment to permanently eliminate sweat and odor glands in the underarm area. Treatment is only available in physicians’ offices. Deschutes Dermatology Center is proud to be the first and only clinic in Central Oregon to have miraDry.

Why did Dr. Carter decide to begin offering miraDry treatments?

After many years of providing patients with temporary treatments for unwanted sweating, Dr. Carter quickly realized the potential of a non-surgical and also permanent solution. After having the treatment herself and seeing first hand how well it works, she was convinced that her patients would benefit from miraDry.

How does miraDry work?

miraDry uses heat energy to treat the targeted area where the sweat and odor glands reside under the skin. At the same time, the miraDry system continuously cools your skin during treatment for added comfort and safety.

Is miraDry safe?

There are 2 to 4 million sweat glands located all over your body and only 2% are located in the underarm area. Eliminating these glands does not affect your body’s ability to cool itself or eliminate toxins. MiraDry has a proven safety record with over 45,000 treatments performed worldwide.

What is treatment like?

Using a hand held applicator, your provider will deliver heat energy after numbing the underarms. The Treatment is painless and takes roughly 30 minutes on each side.

What results can I expect?

On average, there is an 82% reduction in sweating. After a single miraDry treatment, you will notice an immediate reduction in sweat and odor which is permanent. Most patients will require only one treatment, but you will know if you need a second treatment within three months.

How much downtime is there after treatment?

After your miraDry treatment, your underarm area will feel swollen, tender, and sore. Because there is minimal discomfort you can return to normal activities immediately. We recommend that you wait 2-3 days before resuming intense exercise.

Who can benefit from treatment?

• Anyone who wears antiperspirant or deodorant daily
• Anyone who wants to minimize exposure to chemicals such as aluminum
• Anyone who is bothered by their degree of sweating
• Anyone who is tired of having white deodorant marks or discolored, sweat stained clothing
• Anyone who wants to feel more clean and confident

“Not getting deodorant on my clothes everyday was enough for me! I have not worn deodorant since my treatment almost 3 weeks ago and I said goodbye to embarrassing sweat marks! The procedure was painless and I was right back to my daily life that day” – Deschutes Dermatology patient D.R.
After numerous years of wearing clinical strength deodorant and still sweating, the MiraDry treatment seemed too good to be true. I had the procedure two weeks ago, and have not looked back! I have not worn deodorant and have been completely sweat free. The procedure itself was so easy and painless; I was able to get right back to my active life.  Deschutes Dermatology patient R.V.
“I was excited to have an option to rid myself of underarm wetness and odor without using chemicals to control it.  I no longer worry about what clothes I wear that won’t show the wetness or be stained from the antiperspirant!  The miraDry treatment is liberating! There is minimal down time and very little pain.  I highly recommend it!”  Deschutes Dermatology patient C.T.
