Expectations for Miradry - Outcomes and Experience Miradry in Los Angeles

For the patients with underarm hyperhidrosis a revolutionary new technological advancement has transformed the treatment of excessive armpit sweating.  The Miradry procedure uses heat energy to effectively control abnormal sweat glands in the armpit and axilla. 


Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian, a board certified Los Angeles plastic surgeon, is a leading provider of the Miradry procedure in the Greater Los Angeles area.  The Miradry procedure is a long lasting treatment for underarm hyperhidrosis that eliminates the need for repeated Botox injections, laser treatments, or clinical antiperspirants.  Patients who have undergone the Miradry procedure are extremely gratified by the improvement in abnormal and excessive sweating in the arm pit area. 


Instructions for patients who wish to undergo the Miradry procedure include the following:


One to two days prior to the Miradry procedure for underarm hyperhidrosis, patients are advised to shave both of their underarms and to use clinical antiperspirants during that period.  If you have forgotten to shave one to two days prior to the procedure, simply arrive at the office on the day of the Miradry procedure and a clinician will assist you in the process.  On the day of the procedure, patients are advised to wear a clean top with loose sleeves such as a tank top, sports bra for women, or a loose fitting t-shirt.  Patients are also advised to bring a second shirt or blouse for the recovery phase of the procedure. 


During the Miradry procedure, you will be placed in a partially reclined position or flat position on your back with arms placed above your head.  The entire procedure may last approximately for a one hour.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian and his staff will outline these areas of treatment and provide local anesthesia to the area of Miradry treatment.


Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is a leading provider for hyperhidrosis treatment and the Miradry procedures in the Los Angeles area.  He custom-tailors the Miradry underarm treatment to your particular needs and the anatomy of your armpit hyperhidrosis.  Patients who have undergone the Miradry procedure have reported an average pain score of about two on a scale of 1-10.  Most patients will experience little to no pain.
