Pre-MiraDry Instructions

Pre- miraDry Procedure Instructions:

  1. Shave both underarms 4-6 days before the procedure. Do not shave after that so short hair is visible to help identify the area to be treated.
  2. Wear a tank top with loose armholes on the day of the procedure. A dark color is preferable to avoid staining.
  3. Place 4 small size plastic water bottles in the freezer. These will make great ice packs post-procedure.
  4. Do not plan on wearing a sleeveless shirt in public for at least a week post procedure as the area will be discolored and swollen.
  5. Have ibuprofen (Advil/Motrin) or acetaminophen (Tylenol) on hand for post-procedure soreness.
  6. Purchase over the counter Hibiclens cleanser, which is available at the pharmacy counter or your local drug store. Wash your armpits in the shower daily with it for 1 week before the procedure.
