I am a 36 yr old mom of two. I have spent most of my adult life worried about covering up wet pits. 13 yrs in the army allowed me to cover it up pretty well in my uniform but not in my dress uniform. I have silently dealt with it and now that I am a civilian and in sales, I decided enough was enough!!!
I was just about to head in for Botox when I saw an add about MiraDry. I was sold. A day later I called, had a consult and just had the procedure done today -the following week. I hope this works I have heard that is it not always a cure but anything would be better than this.
I was nervous about this for sure. I don't like needles. The nurse that did this for me was very nice and helpful. She talked me through it before doing anything. It went pretty quickly but not without pain. The shots are not horrible but made my eyes water. Then the actual process started. I didn't feel much on the first side ( right) I did, however, have some issues on the second (left). The first suction was on the high side of my armpit and it sent pain through my arm down to my hand. Absolutely horrible. The nurse turned it off and gave me some more lidocaine. After a few minutes she started again and all was fine. I would advise you to ensure you are completely numb. That is not a pain I would wish on anyone.
I also want to share that I made an icing devise that works well. I used frozen water bottles, put them into tube socks and tied them together. Stays in there great and doesn't fall out like it did with them separate.
So, all in all, I would say not a bad procedure and if it works, well worth the small discomfort I felt. I hope this helps in making your decision! Good luck!
So, its been about a month and i have had good...
