Patient Interview: miraDry Experience

Posted February 13, 2023 in MedSpa Treatments, Skin Care Treatments, Uncategorized

Have you ever dealt with discomfort and stains on your favorite shirts due to excessive underarm sweating? Want to avoid the hassle of a deodorant that never lasts and leaves unsightly white marks on your clothes? miraDry is the only FDA-approved treatment for reducing excessive perspiration in the underarm area, also known as hyperhidrosis. It is also a great option for anyone who wants to reduce underarm sweat, odor or hair, or someone with antiperspirant allergies such as the patient below. Here is an interview with a patient of ours who received miraDry treatment, and their experience here at the MedSpa at Wake Plastic Surgery.

Why did you get miraDry?

I came to Wake Plastic Surgery about 3 months ago for a miraDry consult with Kristi. I was researching options to help with my sweating and deodorant allergy when I came across the miraDry treatment online. I found several providers online and called a couple practices in the area, but I ended up choosing this office because of the reviews and positive things I have heard when researching. From the moment I walked in I knew I had made the right decision – from the friendly front desk to the beautiful office my first impressions were very positive. After the consultation with Kristi, I decided to move forward with booking the treatment.

How was your experience and how did your treatment go?

I was nervous the day of the treatment, but Kristi was able to calm my nerves and put on Netflix for me to relax. The numbing part was the only thing I did not enjoy about the procedure, but she made it as quick as she could and the treatment itself was literally a breeze.

How did you feel after your treatment?

I was able to drive myself home that day, but I was still a little numb and swollen. The next day was probably the worst as far as swelling goes, but I iced it and the swelling was able to go down more.

How do you feel now, a few months later?

Now, I am about 3 months out from the original procedure. I wanted to wait for everything to settle before giving my final opinion and let me tell you how much of a difference this has made in my life. I have almost no sweat left in my underarms and basically no noticeable odor WITHOUT wearing deodorant. I couldn’t have imagined not having to wear deodorant ever again, but here I am! If I had to do this procedure again I would 100% and I couldn’t recommend Kristi or Wake Plastic Surgery, enough.
