Sweat Reduction

Although it is not uncommon to struggle with body odor and excessive sweating, many patients feel self-conscious about it. Persistent odor, sweat stains, and sweaty palms can affect your daily life. At BioSpa, our experienced team is proud to offer non-surgical sweat-elimination treatments that can help restore your confidence. We have helped hundreds of patients eliminate their excessive sweating with Botox® and miraDry®.


What is Sweat Reduction?

Sweat reduction treatments are designed to reduce excessive sweating, also called hyperhidrosis. When your body temperature rises, your nervous system activates your sweat glands to help your body cool down. However, in patients with hyperhidrosis, the nerves that signal their sweat glands become overactive.

There is more than one treatment option for sweat reduction. During your consultation at Pacific Center for Plastic Surgery, we’ll discuss your concerns and what treatments are available. Our experienced team members can recommend which treatment option may work best, depending on your needs and goals.

At BioSpa, we offer the following sweat-reduction treatments:

MiraDry® is a non-invasive FDA-cleared treatment that significantly reduces excessive underarm sweat and odor permanently. This innovative sweat reduction method utilizes a handheld device to precisely deliver electromagnetic energy to the treatment area. With miraDry®, we are able to heat the sweat and odor glands in your underarms to destroy the glands without harming your skin.

To address uncontrollable sweating, our master injector can use Botox® and Dysport®, which are neuromodulators made of Botulinum toxin. These injectables can block the nerves that trigger your sweat glands and offer an effective temporary solution to sweat reduction. We often recommend this option for patients with sweaty palms or for those who are not a suitable candidate for miraDry®. If you are looking for a longer-lasting solution for underarm sweat and odor, miraDry® may be the best treatment for you.

To ensure your comfort, your provider at BioSpa may apply a local anesthetic to your treatment areas before injecting a neuromodulator or performing a miraDry® treatment.

To prepare for your miraDry® session, you should shave under your arms and avoid using deodorants or antiperspirants the day of your treatment. We recommend you wear a comfortable shirt that is not tight-fitting to prevent underarm irritation. 

Botox® and Dysport® are convenient “lunch break” injection treatments that usually only take about 15 minutes, depending on the number of injections and treatment areas. A miraDry® session should take about an hour.

Because these sweat reduction treatments are usually quick, easy, and don’t require any incisions, you won’t need significant downtime. You may resume most of your normal activities right after your sweat reduction session. However, you should avoid vigorous exercise, saunas, and jacuzzis for several days after your treatment.

After your miraDry® session, you may experience some numbness, soreness, and swelling in the areas that received treatment. To reduce swelling, you may ice your treated areas and take over-the-counter anti-inflammatory pain relievers over the next few days.

You should also keep your treated areas clean and apply an over-the-counter antibiotic ointment to prevent infection. For the next few days after treatment, avoid shaving and applying deodorants or antiperspirants. If you still want to use these products once you have recovered from your miraDry® treatment, you should discard any opened or used products and use new ones instead.

Typically, there is no downtime required with Botox® and Dysport® treatments. However, you may experience slight swelling, bruising, or other minor side effects at the injection site. Your BioSpa provider will inform you of the possible side effects that you should look out for.

You can expect immediate results following your miraDry® session. You may feel more confident and comfortable in your clothes, as you won’t have to worry about sweat stains or odor anymore. Generally, miraDry® patients experience up to 82% sweat reduction after one to two miraDry® sessions. 

A bonus benefit of miraDry® is hair reduction. Just as the thermal heat destroys unwanted sweat and odor glands, it can also permanently destroy underarm hair follicles. It’s so effective that sometimes patients seek out the treatment primarily for this benefit. In those cases, you may hear it referred to as “miraSmooth.”  

After Botox® and Dysport® treatments, it can take between two to seven days to notice a reduction in sweat. After this time, you can enjoy a significant improvement in the treated area.  

While miraDry® results are permanent, the results from Botox® and Dysport® treatments often last between three to six months.

If deodorants and antiperspirants are not working for you, you may be a good candidate for injectables or miraDry® treatments at our Newport Beach MedSpa. Patients who want to alleviate sweat and body odor with injections or miraDry® should be healthy and at least 18 years of age. 

To determine if you are a good candidate for Botox®, Dysport®, or miraDry® treatments, schedule an appointment with our BioSpa team. We will listen to your concerns and goals to recommend the best treatment for you. 

Since there are multiple sweat reduction treatment options, the cost will depend on which you choose and the treatment area. The national average cost of Botox® and Dysport® injections for both underarms is $1,000, while the average cost of miraDry® is $2,250.

However, this is only a rough estimate, and the actual cost will vary depending on factors such as your geographic location and your provider’s experience. We encourage you to consult with our BioSpa team in Newport Beach to develop your individualized treatment plan and gather a more accurate treatment quote.
