miraDry 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.
