Resume normal activities immediately, exercise in about 1 week.
miraDry is different from other sweat treatments like clinical antiperspirants or BOTOX® because it uses electromagnetic energy to permanently damage sweat glands. The destroyed sweat glands do not grow back, which means sweat production is inhibited long term. Clinical studies have found that on average, people who have 2 or more miraDry treatments enjoy 82% less underarm sweat for 2 years.
Your miraDry treatment should take no longer than an hour and requires no time away from your normal routine. The system’s integrated cooling mechanism ensures that you remain comfortable throughout your procedure; however, additional numbing agents can be used to minimize any unpleasantness. There is some swelling and soreness after treatment but this can be easily minimized with pain medication and ice packs.
Once your miraDry session is complete, you’ll notice the results right away. You may feel slightly sore or swollen under your arms, but these side effects fade within a few days. Your results will be instantly noticeable and you should enjoy a dramatic reduction in underarm perspiration. A second treatment after 3 months is recommended for even longer-lasting results.
