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. With the miraDry® System, the energy is always delivered right where it is most effective.
No other technology provides the consistent density of energy delivery sufficient to destroy sweat and odor glands and hair to deliver superior results in as little as 1 treatment.
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 and odor glands and hair follicles are destroyed in the heat zone
