Treatment and Results
Most patients describe the procedure as painless with little downtime. Local anesthesia is administered to the underarms prior to the treatment to assist in increased comfort. Some patients describe the initial anesthetic injections as the most painful part of the procedure. There are no incisions or cuts. Treatment is customized to each underarm with multiple placements of the miraDry handpiece. An office visit appointment will generally last about one hour.
Most patients experience minimal downtime and return to regular activity (like returning to work). Exercise is typically resumed within several days. You may experience swelling, numbness, bruising and sensitivity in the underarm area for several days post-treatment.
You can see results in as little as one treatment. However, as with any aesthetic treatment, your physician/provider will determine the best protocol for your expected results. You can expect lasting results – sweat glands don’t come back after treatment. The amount of sweat reduction you desire should be discussed with your miraDry physician. Recent clinical information confirms an average of 82% sweat reduction in most patients. As with any aesthetic treatment, results will vary by person.
