What to Expect after miraDry treatments
Swelling, soreness and bruising are common post miraDry
Most patients experience swelling, soreness and bruising post-procedure. However, those side effects should be manageable with the use of ice packs & ibuprofen. You should be able to return to work, provided it’s not vigorous exercising.
Downtime after MiraDry
While most people do go back to work the same day, others who are very active may not. You will need to ice intermittently and take ibuprofen post treatment to help with swelling. No strenuous activity is advised the first couple days post treatment.

What to expect after miraDry Treatment
You can expect to have some swelling and soreness immediately after treatment, which can last about a week but varies from patient to patient. It is recommended to apply ice on and off for the first 24 hours. Some patients also report a numb sensation in the treated area, which can last several weeks but subsides over time. While it is not recommended to work out heavily the day of treatment, most of our patients resume their regular activities the same day.
After Care of MiraDry
Some swelling, bruising, numbness in treated area. You may go back to work but you need to refrain from heavy lifting, running, swimming for 7 days. It is important to ice on and off for the rest of the day.

Typical Recovery after miraDry
We have patients taken Advil/Motrin for the first few days for any discomfort. We tell patients to ice on and off for the first 48 hours. They can expect some minimal bruising, swelling, and slight altered sensation of the skin. These typically last for 1-2 weeks. Patients should avoid exercise for the first week, but then after that, they can resume any activities they want.
Healing after my miraDry treatment
You can return to work the next day ( i did without any problems after my treatment ) but will have swelling in your armpits
I went right back to work after I did it to myself!
Botox can be a good alternative while miradry is being approved for use in those areas. Botox prevents the nerves from telling the sweat glands to produce sweat and odor. Hope that helps!
