MiraSmooth: Permanent Hair, Sweat and Odor reduction for underarms!

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
#miraSmooth is a recently FDA approved permanent hair removal treatment just for underarms.  You can expect 70% hair reduction with one treatment.  Added bonus:  80% sweat reduction and nearly complete odor reduction.  You may never need to shave or use antiperspirants or deodorants again.
The treatment takes about 40 minutes and a local anesthetic is used.  Expect soreness, some numbness and swelling in the armpit.  It feels like a golf ball in your underarm.  Ice and ibuprofen reduce discomfort.  Avoid vigorous exercise for 3 or 4 days.  There is no need to take time off from normal activities at home or at work.  Symptoms decrease daily and are gone in less than 2 weeks for most.
I personally had the procedure done yesterday and am at the office, feeling a little sore but no big deal.
#miraSmooth is cousin to #miraDry, FDA approved in 2011 for excessive underarm sweating and has a 92% RealSelf approval rating.

The procedure is done under local anesthesia. Your underarm area will be sore and swollen for several days, but you can be functional right away. Icing helps a lot and makes the recovery easier. Best, Dr. ALDO :)

MiraSmooth or laser hair reduction

miraSmooth is effective in treating axillary hair. downtime is approximately a day and expect some inflammation in the area that dissipates with OTC use of NDAIDs. Like miraDry, it is very effective and has high patient satisfaction rates. Additional benefits include reduction in sweat and odor originating in the underarms.
