We offer a groundbreaking treatment to reduce underarm sweat, odor, and hair for the long term. This FDA-cleared treatment produces immediate results as little as one treatment.
If you are one of the many people who suffer from excessive sweating, miraDry produces an almost miraculous improvement. If you are unable to go for a walk on a crisp afternoon without excessive sweating, or work in an air-conditioned building and still sweat excessively, or if your underarms sweat to the point your clothes are soaked, you likely have a medical condition called hyperhidrosis.
Dr. O’Connell at Serenity Rejuvenation can help you live a happier, more confident life. Our team in at our private Bellevue clinic can bring you relief, at last.
When ordinary antiperspirants don’t work, you might want to explore medical treatments such as miraDry for hyperhidrosis, odor, and underarm hair. Hyperhidrosis is the clinical name overactive sweat glands. While it is necessary to sweat to keep the body cool, with hyperhidrosis, the body sweats profusely even when the body does not need cooling.
miraDry is a safe, FDA-cleared, non-invasive, lasting solution to resolve hyperhidrosis. Using microwave technology, miraDry delivers heat waves as hot as 140 degrees Fahrenheit just below the skin surface, and at the same time, a cooling device prevents the upper layer of skin from burning. The controlled delivery of energy turns off your sweat glands for a lifetime.

What to Expect During the Procedure
miraDry, an FDA-cleared procedure, will be performed in the comfort of our Bellevue office. Dr. O’Connell will begin the processes by measuring your armpits and marking the treatment areas. Lidocaine will be applied to both armpits to provide a more comfortable experience during your procedure. The number of shots necessary will vary from person to person, but you can expect around 30 shots.
Once numbed, the miraDry device is applied to destroy the underarm sweat glands. The procedure should take approximately one hour to complete. After a miraDry treatment, you may experience a minor soreness or swelling. This is entirely normal and ice packs can help to reduce the swelling or discomfort. It is important to give yourself a few days of downtime to relax and heal. The recovery period is short, but don’t plan any big work meetings or activities directly after your procedure. You will experience immediate results with miraDry – no more underarm sweat.
What is miraDry?
MiraDry is a revolutionary non-surgical treatment that is FDA-cleared and is clinically proven to resolve the problem of excessive underarm sweat, odor, and hair in just one hour. Over 100,000 miraDry treatments have been performed worldwide.
How does miraDry work?
The miraDry treatment works by delivering targeted thermal energy (specifically microwave wavelengths) to safely eliminate sweat, odor, and hair.
How is miraDry different from other treatment options?
Alternative options, including antiperspirants contain toxic chemicals including aluminum which stain the materials in which it contacts including clothing. The active ingredient in most antiperspirants (aluminum) has been linked to various health problems.
BOTOX injections are an effective treatment for hyperhidrosis, but requires repeat treatments to your sweat glands, typically every nine months or sooner.
Don’t I need sweat glands?
While your body does need sweat glands to cool itself, your body contains two to four million sweat glands, with approximately 2 percent in the underarms. Treating the underarm sweat glands does not negatively affect your body’s ability to cool itself.
How long will it take and how many treatments are needed?
The treatment is typically complete in one hour and results can be achieved in as little as one treatment. A small percentage of patients have will need a second treatment to fully resolve the problem. However, as with any medical procedure performed at Serenity Rejuvenation Center, Dr. O’Connell will work closely with you to achieve the relief you need. The sweat, odor, and hair addressed with miraDry is gone for good.
How does the treatment feel?
Since local anesthesia is administered prior to treatment, miraDry treatments are typically pain-free. You may experience some localized soreness and swelling, which typically resolves fully within a few weeks.
