"Austin-Weston is amazing. My first experience with them was in 2007 when I had a life-changing breast reduction. I healed quickly, had minimal scarring and was able to finally buy a shirt that buttoned within weeks of the surgery. 10 years later, I'm still thrilled with the results.For the past year, I've been seeing Savannah for laser hair removal of some hair in undesirable places. Each time, Savannah is incredibly nice and gentle... And there's a noticeable difference each time. After 6 full sessions and a few touch ups, you can't even tell! And after 30 years on this earth, she informed me that I did not have oily skin and switched me over to an Austin-Weston moisturizer that has greatly improved my complexion and made my skin look so much better!The hair removal has greatly improved my confidence and I'm so excited about the results!"- N.C. / Yelp / Dec 11, 2017

The miraDry system delivers electromagnetic energy noninvasively to the area where the sweat glands reside. However, to provide extra comfort, local anesthesia is injected into the underarm area prior to the procedure. Typically, two procedures are recommended three months apart to maximize the results and duration. Each procedure appointment generally lasts about an hour. Since miraDry uses precisely controlled energy to eliminate underarm sweat glands, these structures don’t typically grow back after treatment, resulting in a dramatic and lasting reduction of underarm sweat.
What to Expect
You can expect minimal to no downtime following your miraDry procedure and should be able to return to normal activities or work right after your session. Typically, strenuous exercise should be avoided but can resume within several days. Localized soreness or swelling is common and usually clears within a few weeks. These symptoms may also be eased with ice packs or over-the-counter pain medication. Some patients have short-term, altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears.
