Patients with underarm sweating now have a revolutionary new option available that is nonsurgical and noninvasive.  The Miradry system is now available in Los Angeles and can dramatically control excessive underarm sweating in patients who have a condition known as hyperhidrosis. 


Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is a board certified plastic surgeon who has been managing the patient’s with hyperhidrosis and excessive sweating in the Los Angeles area.  Patients who have uncontrolled sweating that gets in the way of normal social activities, school, and work related activities can benefit from adequate control of their excessive sweating. 


In previous years, painful neurotoxin injections using Botox have been used to manage underarm sweating.  The problem with Botox injections is that it requires repeat injections every several months and the patients often note that injections are painful and time consuming. 


Unlike Botox neurotoxin injections for hyperhidrosis, the Miradry procedure offers a unique long lasting solution that does not require neurotoxin injections or long term management.  The Miradry procedure is a long lasting solution that can dramatically improve your symptoms. 


Patients can expect a dramatic reduction in underarm sweating as the Miradry procedure uses heat energy to effectively control and eliminate abnormal sweat glands in the armpits.  Patients can expect a one hour procedure that is customized to their specific needs. 


Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is double board certified and has expertise in the management of hyperhidrosis.  If you are suffering from this condition, there are treatment options available in his Los Angles plastic surgery practice that can improve lifestyle and improve your results. 


Patients who undergo the Miradry procedure are awake and the treatment is customized to your specific anatomy and symptoms.  During the procedure, the patients are either partially reclined or fully reclined with their arms above their head during the duration of the Miradry treatment. 


Dr. Karamanoukian and his staff will outline and apply markings along the areas of excessive sweating prior to the procedure.  Local anesthesia is applied towards the treatment area for the Miradry system.  Once the treatment is begun, patients often feel a heat sensation and pulling vacuum along the treated skin area and little or no pain in most cases. 


In fact, a recent study of patients who had undergone the procedure noted that their average pain score was 2 on a 1 to 10 scale.  If you have questions about the Miradry the procedure or wish to reduce the annoying and cumbersome symptoms associated with axillary hyperhidrosis, please call our Los Angeles plastic surgery practice at 310-998-5533.
