miraDry Mechanism of Action

The Most Effective Energy Delivery

In the axilla, eccrine and apocrine glands (the glands responsible for sweat and odor) and hair follicles are found in high density and varied depth at the dermal-fat interface. Peak temperatures in excess of 60°C throughout the entire volume of target tissue are required to achieve significant and permanent destruction of the glands. miraWave technology consistently delivers energy to the dermal-fat interface, allowing precise heating independent of skin thickness.

miraWave technology delivers 5.8 GHz microwave energy. The energy is reflected at the dermal-fat junction and becomes concentrated, creating a focal energy zone.

  • Nearly all sweat and odor glands reside at the dermal-fat interface.
  • Focused heating is independent of skin thickness, hair color, or skin color.

Continuous hydroceramic cooling protects the dermis while heat continues to spread down into the region where sweat glands reside.

  • Sweat, odor glands, and hair follicles are destroyed in the heat zone.

With miraWave Technology, miraDry delivers immediate results in as little as one treatment.
