Is it safe to have second treatment with level 5?

MiraDry Treatments for Sweating
We normally treat most all patients at level 5 for each and every treatment. It is very safe with proper anesthesia, and more effective to treat at level each time. We find many patients only need 1 treatment with this protocol, most all have responded with excellent results with 2, and rarely is a 3rd treatment needed.
Second treatment with MiraDry?
Greetings. I find that a lot of patients benefit from a second treatment of MiraDry. Miradry is safe and effective at reducing sweaty and smelly underarms. We usually wait about 3 months to do the second treatment. It's true that some patients can get a great improvement with just one treatment, but in a hot state like Arizona we tend to sweat more. Best, Dr. ALDO :)
Level 5 is Safe
A second procedure may be needed for additional sweat and odor reduction. All our patients are treated at level 5. It is best to wait at least 3 months after your initial treatment before proceeding with your second. Do keep in mind that MiraDry does not get rid of all your sweat gland but will help significantly reduce it about 70-80%.

Hi and thank you for your question!
We always treat at level 5 and have done multiple treatments on many patients. However, we do recommend you wait 3 months in between treatments. You may need the second treatment for more dramatic results.
Feel free to come into our office for a complementary consultation!

MiraDry Multiple treatments with Level 5
MiraDry is the only FDA cleared aesthetic treatment for the permanent elimination of underarm sweat and odor glands. It’s a quick in-office treatment providing immediate and permanent sweat and odor elimination with minimal to no downtime. Sweat and odor glands under the arms are removed safely with MiraDry proprietary electromagnetic technology.
We always treat our MiraDry patients with level 5. If a person has hyperhidrosis prior to the procedure, they may need a second or even a third treatment. Both additional treatments are performed at level 5 and are very safe. Good Luck!
Using the latest model of MiraDry it is safe to use level 5 more than once. This is done with tumescent injection of local anesthesia and this further protects all the structures.

How many MiraDry treatments can you have?
Thank you for your question. There is no default setting for Miradry. The level is based on the comfort of the physician using the laser. My office typically treats all patients at a level five. We have had excellent results in treating armpit sweating and odor. The second treatment, if needed, is performed 90 days after the first treatment.
