IPL & Cosmetic Laser User Groups > Miradrytreatment for axillary hyperhidrosis

I am in the market to buy a new cosmetic laser platform for my practice in 2015. Salesman has been visiting me lately regarding the Mira Dry. Has anyone tried it in their practice? Are you satisfied? Is it a money maker?

The days of making money with new laser platform is over. Expensive machines with expensive disposable treatment tips are eating away profits. At times I feel like just doing Filler and botox injection and use my dependable Sciton Joule platform without buying into new technology. Over the years, I've gone through Cutera Titan, Thermage, Scion Skin Tyte, Ulthera........... Nothing beats filler and botox in my opinion. All those laser machine purchases were made to retain niche clients and didn't do so much to boost profit due to deep discount to compete with local clinics.

Anyway, back to Mira Dry

MiraDry, is the trademark name[1] of a non-invasive microwave-based technology[2] (electromagnetic medical device) for the treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis created by Miramar Labs[3] in 2006 and FDA Cleared in 2011.[4] Axillary hyperhidrosis, or excessive underarm sweat, is a medical condition where the sweat glands are overactive, producing more sweat than is needed to cool the body.[5]

MiraDry is a treatment that destroys sweat glands in the axilla (underarms) without surgery. MiraDry currently does not treat hyperhidrosis for hands or feet, because the procedure has only been optimized to take into account the physical attributes of the underarms.

As of 2014, the hyperhidrosis treatment device is available in North America, Asia Pacific (including Japan [6]) , and Europe.
