Skin Resurfacing Pre and Post Care Instructions

miraDry Pre-Care Instructions:

  • 4 – 6 Days Before Procedure: Shave both underarms; by the time you come in for your procedure, there will be a little bit of hair growth to identify the area to be treated. If you forget to shave, we will recommend that you reschedule your procedure date.

  • 1 Day Before Procedure: Do not wear any deodorant or antiperspirant.

  • Day of Procedure: Wear clothes with loose armholes for easy access to the treatment site, e.g. tank top, sports bra, or camisole

 

miraDry Post-Care Instructions:

  • Immediately ice the treated area using towel-wrapped ice packs and use non-prescription anti-inflammatory medication (e.g. ibuprofen) to reduce swelling.  Continue as needed over the new few days. 

  • Keep the treated area clean (wash with water and gentle liquid soap) and apply an over-the-counter antibiotic ointment (e.g. Neosporin) to prevent infection.

  • Avoid shaving or applying antiperspirant/deodorant for the next few days.  If deodorant/antiperspirant is still desired after the treatment, discard any partially used product and open a new product.  

  • Wait a few days before resuming rigorous exercise and activity.

  • Wear loose-fitting tops to avoid underarm irritation for the next few days.
