What Should One Expect Immediately After Doing miraDry? Ok to Go Back to Work?

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.
Going Back to Work After miraDry is A-OK
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.

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!

What to expect after miraDry treatment
After miraDry most patients return immediately to their normal activities including work and exercise. Most patients have a good bit of swelling - almost like lumpiness - under the arms that you will feel and can be a bit uncomfortable but typically does not keep you from any activities. There is also at least a little bit of bruising in the treatment area only. We consider it a treatment with zero downtime as these side effects are short lived - 4-10 days - and do not keep you from the things you want and need to do.
