For anyone who suffers from excessive underarm sweating, miraDry can absolutely be life changing. When you’re considering any procedure reviews can be very helpful in the decision-making process.
At WIFH, we have been helping patients with their sweating problems using miraDry for four years and have done close to 500 treatments. We have many reviews from our own patients raving about how easy the procedure was and how they wished they had done it sooner.
What is miraDry?
miraDry is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure intended to relieve excessive underarm sweating. At WIFH, it is performed in our office with the use of local anesthesia, which allows patients to have a painless and comfortable experience.
As Chris E wrote in a review on our website, “I had miraDry done at WIFH and I have to say the treatment is nothing short of AMAZING! No more embarrassing sweat stains on my business shirts. Thank you WIFH!”
Our typical miraDry patients say they began looking at miraDry as a treatment option for a number of reasons like:
- They were sick of ruining shirts.
- Excessive sweating was embarrassing.
- Results from prescription antiperspirants and Botox didn’t last long enough.
- They were done dealing with excessive sweating.
miraDry patients find that miraDry allows them to get rid of their excessive underarm sweating and start living life confidently again.
As one miraDry reviewer on RealSelf wrote about WIFH: “Dr Kulkin and his staff are always great! They treat you like family. I had the miradry procedure done. Dr Kulkin was great I barely felt anything during the numbing process. The procedure went well and I got great results, basically no underarm sweat. What a great difference Miradry procedure has made. No more soaked underarm shirts. I highly recommend WIFH! They take care of you.”
Dr. Kulkin’s Numbing Technique for miraDry
The way we do miraDry at WIFH is a little different from other facilities. Dr. Kulkin uses a tumescent technique—the same he uses during liposuction—to numb the underarm area before the procedure. Most other offices that perform miraDry use a series of lidocaine injections to numb the underarms, which can require up to 100 lidocaine shots in each underarm and still will not provide complete comfort for the patient. With the tumescent technique, patients only need to receive one lidocaine injection in each underarm in which a tiny entry point is then made to infuse the numbing fluid. This makes the numbing process so much easier and the procedure painless for our patients.
Our patients love Dr. Kulkin’s technique. In fact, another reviewer on RealSelf wrote in a miraDry review:
“I loved every aspect of my experience with WIFH. They had great reviews which I considered when making my final decision. I chose them based on that and Dr Kulkin’s numbing technique and I couldn’t imagine having this procedure done with any other doctor. The ladies at the front desk were wonderful, Regan, Charlotte and Dr Kulkin were all great. They provide other cosmetic services at WIFH, that I will probably return for.”
Number of miraDry Treatments
Most of our patients only require one treatment since we are able to treat at the highest power setting the miraDry device allows. With this one treatment patients see, on average, anywhere from an 80% to 90% reduction in sweat and odor. About 15% of our patients have returned for a 2nd procedure, not because they weren’t satisfied with the results of the first procedure, but simply to see if they could get even more reduction in their sweat and odor.

Buccinole (2 years ago)
Dr. Kulkin and I spoke for approximately 20 minutes prior to my miraDry procedure during my consultation appointment. At the time of my consultation, I had already discussed at length, aspects of the procedure with Melissa from the office who had successfully had the procedure herself. I asked her many questions about the during and immediately after the procedure and what to expect. She was very accommodating and honest about direct questions that I had regarding the entire process. I had very few questions for Dr. Kulkin thanks to Melissa and my independent research into this procedure. I will say that I was “pessimistically optimistic” that this procedure would do what it claims but now that I’m 4 days removed from the procedure; I’m a believer and I have my life back! That is not some grandiose statement but one that comes completely from a place of relief. I’m 39 and have suffered, yes suffered from this hyperhidrosis in the underarms for well over 25 years. I could not go anywhere without a change of undershirts and the constant worry about sweat rings in my pits. I remember it began during puberty and has been a huge burden both mentally and physically since it’s inception. I cannot praise enough this procedure’s results for me. If there is anyone on the fence about having this done, I encourage you to reach out to Dr. Kulkin’s office and see if this is right for you. I want to say THANK YOU Dr. Kulkin, Charlotte, Melissa and staff @ WIFH for bringing this procedure to Atlanta!

All the staff were fantastic, from Melissa helping me to book the treatment, Charlotte being flexible when a last-minute change was needed, and Dr. Kulkin spending time explaining his procedure. Thank you!

I am a protectionist and I have used several others but WIFH and Dr. Kulkin’s staff is absolutely the best! From the staff, to Dr. Kulkin they really focus on every aspect of customer satisfaction, perfection and professionalism in everything they do. I truly love the work and the kindness of all the people at this office. I will never go anywhere else, and I highly recommend them for any procedure they offer, it is money well spent.
