If you’re considering miraDry® in Raleigh, your first step begins with a consultation. At Diehl Plastic Surgery, you will be able to personally meet with Dr. Diehl who will answer any questions or concerns you may have about this treatment. To further evaluate your candidacy for miraDry®, your medical history will be discussed, and your underarms will be examined during the consultation.

If you decide that miraDry® is right for you, you will receive a treatment plan that is fully customized to your needs. Your personalized miraDry® treatment at Diehl Plastic Surgery will allow you to say goodbye to underarm sweat and odor for good.
Before your miraDry® treatment, your underarms will be numbed using local tumescent anesthesia. This allows the miraDry® device to be operated at the highest energy levels while still maintaining optimal comfort. Once the treatment area is numbed and marked, the handheld miraDry® device delivers electromagnetic energy to eliminate sweat and odor glands via heat. The electromagnetic energy is controlled by a computer, allowing it to simultaneously heat and cool the skin in the safest, most efficient manner possible. The entire process only takes about 20 minutes for each underarm.
Dr. Diehl is driven by the desire to better the lives of her patients. Dr. Diehl is one of the few female and Spanish-speaking plastic surgeons in Raleigh. She is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and was previously certified by the American Board of Surgery. Dr. Diehl is trained in cosmetic facial, breast, and body procedures, including SmartLipo MPX, an FDA approved laser liposuction technology. She also provides non-surgical cosmetic treatments including CoolSculpting®, Thermi®, miraDry®, and injectables to patients in Raleigh and the surrounding area.MEET DR. CYNTHIA DIEHL

You might experience mild swelling, tenderness, and bruising after treatment, but these temporary symptoms can be treated with ice packs and over-the-counter pain relievers. miraDry® requires no downtime, and you can immediately resume your regular activities.
