I had my first procedure on April 13th and I have been sweat and odor free for 5 days, but this morning I am a little sweaty - not anywhere near what I was before as I have a severe case of hyperhydrosis under my arms, facial/cranial and torso. I'm feeling a bit disappointed today. I understand it's an 86% reduction and it needs 2 procedures, but the first 5 days were very exciting! I only hope the second procedure nips it in the bud. Definately worth it just for the reduction in sweat and odor. I won't lie, it was a bit uncomfortable - just the lidocaine shots, and there is definate swelling but just ice, ice , ice and you will have no problem.

I decided to have the miradry procedure to enhance my life even a little bit. Since I suffer from facial/cranial and torso hyperhidrosis as well, I can't really do anything about that except taking medication. I take Ditropan 2 - 3 times a day. As this procedure is only for the underarms, I really felt I would be more self confident not worrying about odor on top of the sweating. This disease can be very debilitating as to quality of life when you are so embarrassed to go out in case you have a severe attack. Stress definately triggers an attack and I would be uncomfortable in social settings especially in hot weather.

The procedure itself wasn't bad at all and I will definately have the second procedure and I would encourage everyone else to try this as well - maybe when the price comes down. I opted to pay full price to have it done as soon as possible as I have struggled with this most of my life. I'm 42 years old and fortunate to live at the Beach in Southern California so I don't have the weather issues here ; )

I have a definate reduction in sweating under my arms and no odor at all.

I would be interested in others experiences after the first procedure as I am only on day 7.

Thank you,

Please see photo after 1 week. The swelling is barely there and just a bit of bruising. No pain at all. I'm still sweating just a very tiny bit, but there is no odor at all. I'll update this again in a week.
