I used to suffer from excessive sweating for over 10 years now and had tried 2 prescription deodorants which didn’t work along with every type of regular deopdorants even the clinical brands. It was awful I would always wear BLACK shirts to hide sweat stains on my clothing. I would keep my arms very close to my body so no one would see this embarrassing conditions. I have been a bridesmaids 5 times in the last 2 years and worried about the pretty dresses and sweating every time. :(

I did tons of researching prior to finding out about MIRA DRY, I have looked into the ETS surgery but it can be very risky and didn’t really feel comfortable for the side effects. Mira dry seem to be a non-surgical procedure to help my ease problem.
I found out two doctors in my area that offers the Mira dry, one less than a mile from my house. I called to schedule a consultation and learn about this treatment for hyperhidrosis.

The Procedure

Megan nurse was great! She explained everything and made this experience better since I was nervous. It was fast and easy! The
treatments took about hour didn’t have any no pain just discomfort. I received about 30 injections in each underarm for numbing. Don’t freak out! This was not bad at all just uncomfortable. The actual process of the microwave suctions(MIRADRY UNIT) was quick and didn’t hurt. At the end of the first treatment my right arm first, I felt dizzy and hyper but according the nurse this is a normal reaction/side efftects. After the second arm was finished, about 30 minutes later the whole prodecure was over! I was able to move my arms however they were swollen and numb. Once I got home I did ICE my underarms, which is highly suggested

I would say reduce sweating 100%.
Following the treatment, I took one week off from the gym. With a few gym workouts, I do have some light sweating. I do plan on going back for the second treatment 3 months later. I would like the best results possible.

5 weeks later starting to sweat again. :( anyone...

5 weeks later starting to sweat again. :(

Update ... I had my first treatment in August...

Update ...

I had my first treatment in August and second treatment in December.
Second Treatment
Lidocaine injections was given for numbing. I didn't feel pain during the actual treatment, maybe a hot spot for a few seconds.
level 3 was used for my second treatments since I was only having 30% reduce sweating after the first treatment. I was told level 5 is barely used.
Recovery/After care
You can expect armpits to be swollen and sore and bruising, but no pain just discomfort. I did ice my underarms for about 48 hours. USE ICE PACKS!! Helps with swelling and healing process.
I used the ice packs provided along with bigger cold packs I had at home. Switching off and on every 15-20 minutes.
My armpits did take slightly longer to heal from the second treatment but I was back to working out and normal activities with in one week.

The whole process was very easy and takes about 1-2 hours.

Any questions or concerns?? Please comment.
