miraDry - Breakthrough procedure for bothersome underarm sweating

What is miraDry?

miraDry is a safe, clinically proven, FDA-cleared solution for significantly reducing underarm sweat. It’s an outpatient procedure performed in our clinic in Dublin, and it doesn’t involve any surgical incisions or cuts. miraDry works by delivering precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the underarm area, eliminating the underarm sweat glands.

Two procedures are typically recommended, 3 months apart, to maximize the quality and duration of results. Each appointment generally lasts about an hour.

miraDry is the only FDA-cleared procedure that provides a lasting reduction of underarm sweat in a completely non-invasive way. Other treatment options, including antiperspirants and toxins, aim to temporarily block or disable the sweat glands for varying lengths of time – requiring repeat treatments to maintain effectiveness. Other options involve surgery, which poses inherent risks.


The miraDry system eliminates the underarm sweat glands, and the sweat glands don’t grow back after treatment.

This results in a dramatic and lasting reduction of underarm sweat. In a clinical study, patients experienced an average of 82% reduction in underarm sweat, and patient satisfaction approached 100%.

You should notice a reduction in sweat immediately after treatment. As with any medical procedure, results will vary by person. Secondary effects include underarm hair and odor reduction. Book in for a consultation with Dr Prendergast to determine if the miraDry procedure is right for you.

What to expect?

You can expect minimal to no downtime following the procedure.

You should be able to return to normal activities or work right away, and you can typically resume exercise within several days.

Localized soreness or swelling is normal, and usually clears within a few weeks. Some patients have temporary altered sensation in their underarm or upper arm skin, which gradually disappears. Secondary effects include underarm hair and odor reduction.

Scarless Suture Facelift



Venus Medical Scarless Suture Facelift - By Dr Peter Prendergast from ECAMS on Vimeo.

Dr Prendergast has published widely on scarless suture (thread) lifting techniques and has conducted training courses and workshops for other doctors in Ireland, Malaysia, India, and Thailand. The scarless facelift procedure lifts the brow, jowls, cheeks, and neck using special threads or sutures, passed into the tissues through tiny incisions using special instruments. These procedures are performed under local anaesthesia in about 30-90 minutes depending on the areas lifted. There is very little downtime, usually little bruising, and few restrictions to your normal activities. The scarless facelift is not intended to replace invasive open facelift surgery, but represents a nice alternative for those who want a slight natural-looking lift, a speedy recovery, and who do not want visible scars.

Silhouette thread lift




Venus Medical silhouette thread lift procedure - patient video testimonial from ECAMS on Vimeo.

The Silhouette thread lift is an exciting new procedure that provides a face and neck lift through a small 3cm incision hidden behind the hairline. Fine threads containing several tiny cones along their length are placed into the cheeks and jowls from the incision in the temple. An instant natural-looking lift is achieved. One of the exciting new developments with Silhouette threads is the potential to re-tighten the threads over time without having to insert more sutures. Lifting of the mid-face with Silhouette sutures provides rejuvenation by lifting the cheeks, reducing under-eye hollows, softening the nose-to-mouth folds, lifting the jowls, and improving the definition of the neck. The neck lift is achieved through a small incision hidden behind the ear.
