miraDry® & Hyperhidrosis in Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Punta Gorda, FLMany people sweat when they are nervous or overly-heated. However, if you find that you are sweating all the time, you may be suffering from hyperhidrosis, a medical condition that causes exaggerated sweating. Even the word “hyperhidrosis” means “too much sweating.”
Patients who have hyperhidrosis sweat when the body does not need to cool down, which often leads to embarrassing and unwanted sweat marks on clothing. Skin infections can also occur when the skin is regularly wet. Dr. Brueck offers miraDry®, a quick and non-invasive procedure to significantly reduce underarm sweat.
How does miraDry work?
The miraDry® system in Fort Myers distributes accurate and controlled electromagnetic energy to the underarm where sweat glands exist. This energy heats the sweat glands, eliminating them permanently. Dr. Brueck creates a customized treatment for each underarm, depending on where your sweat glands are located and how significant you’re sweating. Your underarms will be numbed prior to the treatment to ensure your comfort. The miraDry® handpiece will then be applied to the underarms, delivering energy to the sweat glands. This treatment commonly lasts about an hour. Two treatments are recommended, each three months apart for optimal results.
What can I expect during a miraDry treatment in Fort Myers?
Since this treatment is performed under local anesthesia, patients experience little pain. Most patients experience minimal pressure and pulling on the skin, with warming sensations. They may feel an occasional “hot spot”, but they are brief and often well tolerated. Patients describe the discomfort as around 2 on a scale of 10, with 10 being the highest.

How is miraDry different from other treatment options?
Other treatment options, such as antiperspirants and toxins, only strive to restrict sweat glands for a certain length of time, and require repeat applications or treatments for long-lasting effects. Surgery for excessive sweating can also come with complications. miraDry® is the only non-invasive treatment that can provide long-lasting results.
How long is recovery from a miraDry treatment?
There is minimal to no downtime after this treatment. Dr. Brueck will recommend an over-the-counter pain medical for any mild discomfort, as well as the use of ice packs for a couple days. Patients should be able to return to their everyday activities, as well as work directly after treatment, and exercise can be resumed after several days.
