The procedure is completed in 3steps- temporary markings are made on the skin, local anesthesia is administered and then the miraDry system is used.
AdvertisementThe actual time period required for the treatment is about 40minutes. Just in case some areas are skipped, a touch up visit may be needed. The custom software makes it easier to carry out the process. Majority patients notice difference soon after the treatment.
