Who is an ideal candidate for the MiraDry hyperhidrosis treatment? Los Angeles plastic surgeon at Kare Plastic Surgery - Raffy Karamanoukian, MD

MiraDry is an FDA approved treatment for a condition that is commonly known as extensive underarm sweating.  Although everyone sweats through their armpits, some patients have excessive underarm sweating that is not controlled by body temperature or the external room temperature.  These patients note excessive and unrelenting sweating that may occur on the armpit, palms, face, feet, and chest.  The MiraDry system is specifically FDA approved for the treatment of underarm or axillary hyperhidrosis.  Axillary hyperhidrosis can cause significant impairment in normal social activities and can cause embarrassment in public. 


Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in all aspects of cosmetic plastic surgery.  In his Los Angeles plastic surgery office, he performs treatment for underarm sweating and hyperhidrosis using a combination of FDA approved treatments such as Botox injections and MiraDry treatment.  A good candidate for MiraDry hyperhidrosis treatment is an individual, healthy, adult male or female who has significant social and physical impairment from underarm sweating.  The MiraDry system can be performed on a outpatient basis using local anesthesia and tumescent anesthesia.  In the Los Angeles area, please call our plastic surgery patient care coordinator at (310) 998-5533 to schedule a consultation for underarm sweating and hyperhidrosis treatment with the MiraDry system.
