Can I undergo MiraDry procedure if I had laser hair removal? Kare Plastic Surgery in Los Angeles

The MiraDry procedure is indicated for the treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis, a condition that is commonly known as excessive underarm sweating.  The patients with known hyperhidrosis of the armpit can benefit from the microwave technology utilized in the Miradry system.  The armpit is a sensitive area and is often a location for laser hair removal.  If you have previous laser hair removal, the MiraDry hyperhidrosis treatment will not interfere with your previous treatment and Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian, a board certified plastic surgeon in Los Angeles, will discuss your pretreatment regimen prior to the MiraDry procedure. 


Our office preforms the MiraDry hyperhidrosis treatment for underarm sweating as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia.  If you are concerned about the sweating on your armpits and the irritation that has occurred from the excessive perspiration, please call our Los Angeles plastic surgery office at 310 998 5533 to schedule your consultation.  If you are planning on future laser hair removal to the armpit area once the MiraDry system is complete, Dr. Karamanoukian and his staff can offer you details regarding future laser hair removal treatments with our gentle YAG laser hair removal system. 


Our plastic surgery office is a comprehensive center for hyperhidrosis and for plastic surgery.  During your consultation, you will be provided with full details regarding your pre and posttreatment instruction as well as what to expect after the MiraDry system.  Call 310-998-5533 and speak to our patient care coordinator regarding your hyperhidrosis consultation and your MiraDry hyperhidrosis treatment.
