I'm a 23 year old male who has struggled with underarm sweat since I was 16. I have tried everything short of invasive surgery and nothing seemed to work (Botox worked well but it only lasted around 4 months for me and at $1000+ it didn't seem worth it). I had my Miradry procedure performed on 4/20.
A little about the procedure... First they make you read and sign all these consent forms that could scare you, but if you've done your research as I had, it's nothing new. The tech was smoking hot which helped, and she informed me that she had Miradry performed and loved it. The shots suck....

After you're numbed up the handheld device is placed on all 37 (for me) places in the underarm which is a breeze and feels like nothing. Simply put, if you can tough it out through the shots you're home free.
Anyway, I experienced mild bruising and soreness, but it's nothing a few painkillers and cocktails can't take care of. As far as the sweating goes, im less than a week in and have not sweated at all.
