"Shima Karimi was absolutely wonderful during my Miradry treatment at Austin-Weston. She was professional and knowledgeable. The facility is exceptionally maintained, clean, and comfortable. Overall an enjoyable experience."- S. / RealSelf / Jul 22, 2020
"No Sweat - After years of botox treatments for hyperhidrosis a friend suggested I give miraDry a try. It's been 5 weeks since my treatment at Austin-Westin and I am sweating about 50% less than I was before. The initial bruising and swelling following the treatment is pretty severe but it goes away quickly and was completely resolved within about 3 weeks. I had a bit of tenderness around my underarms that persists even now but is dissipating. At this point I will likely wait about 6 months to a year before deciding on a second treatment but if I do need another I will definitely go back to Austin-Westin. The entire team at Austin-Westin, from the reception at the front desk to the nurses who did the prep and the procedure, everyone was friendly, kind and very capable."- Z. / RealSelf / Jan 18, 2021

"I had my miraDry procedure done for the first time here at Austin-Weston center and I don’t think I could have had a more pleasant experience. I would recommend this practice to anyone and everyone for both surgical and nonsurgical procedures. The staff are comforting and always have smiles on their faces. I was very nervous for my appointment but the staff made sure I was more than comfortable and didn’t leave my side. The procedure itself was very simple and easy with no down time and only a little swelling and some tenderness! For anyone that experiences excessive underarm sweating, miraDry at AWC is a must."- H.S. / Yelp / Jun 25, 2019
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.
