After you have completely healed from MiraDry, your skin color and texture will be normal. The main visual change will be a reduction in underarm hair.
Healing from miraDry has several components. Not all occur with the same frequency, but all resolve with time:
1. swelling - every patient experiences this, and it can take 2 weeks to resolve
2. numbness - not frequent; it results from "stunning" a nerve and can take a few months to resolve
3. darkening of the armpit skin - more common in darker skin types; does resolve with time
4. lumps or cords- part of the wound healing process and can last several weeks. The cords are likely due to inflamed veins (phlebitis). The lumps are due to the wound healing process.
