I've done the Miradry procedure for armpit odor. Nothing has changed. Procedure done on levels 4 and 5. What can I do?

You should return to your treating doctor and discuss your concerns. Have an iodine-starch test to identify where the sweat glands are still present and see if they would recommend a third treatment.

Miradry for Odor
Hi and thank you for your question!
Its always best to first follow up with your physician or the provider who performed the procedure with your questions and concerns. There are some people who need the two treatments for odor control and sometimes the third. We treat all of our patients at level 5, so this is an ideal setting, unless per your doctor there is some reason why you are not a candidate for level 5.
I had the procedure done and am so happy I did. I no longer need deodorant! Life changing!

MiraDry is primarily for elimination of the sweat glands that cause hyperhidrosis. As the odor glands reside within mm of these, they are subsequently effected. It is fairly common to still experience odor for 6-8 weeks post treatment. I would consider having Laser Hair Removal done in addition.
Hang in there, and be well.

You will need a 2nd miraDry procedure, a thorough one, using Level 5 by an experienced miraDry provider.
Read the miraDry book written by myself and Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian (Kare Plastic Surgery, Santa Monica, CA).
