I had the Miradry procedure at the end of last month (December 2012), and my condition has improved dramatically. It may be too early to say this,but I think this procedure will be life-changing for me.
About me... I may not be the typical Miradry patient, as I've never dealt with an abnormal amount of underarm sweating. My issue was severe bromhidrosis (odor) which I have SUFFERED for 20 years! This is a medical condition, but (trust me) no one gives you a "pass" for having B.O.
Before this procedure I would shower at least once daily, apply a strong antiperspirant and still experience varying degrees of musty odor in my armpits. I've tried many OTC products, herbal remedies, Botox, Certain Dri, etc. and nothing worked for more than a few hours. Since the Miradry procedure, I have had very little/no moisture in my underarm at all and ZERO odor... and I am not applying deodorant or antiperspirant. I am amazed and relieved!
The procedure itself was virtually painless. Armpit #1 required additional lidocaine/epinephrine shots after I felt discomfort in a couple of areas. Armpit #2 received an extra "dose" of meds and I did not feel a thing during the process.
Afterward, I had moderate swelling, a little discoloration and discomfort, for which I applied ice packs and took 800mg ibuprofen for a couple of days. By the five-day point, I had just a small amount of swelling.
At this point, I highly recommed Miradry. My days of carrying Mitchum antiperspirant in my purse may be over - I pray. If you are a hyperhidrosis or bromhidrosis sufferer... and you can find a way to pay fee, this may be the answer you are seeking. Will post an update in a month.
In my opinion, the $3,000 price tag for Miradry
It has been a month since I had my first-round...
