Miradry Help-Question on why MiraDry doesn't work for me?
Doctor Answers 6
The activity of the sweat glands can be assessed with a test in the office. You may very well have hyperhidrosis and i'm not sure you would benefit from a third episode of MiraDry. It does sound like it's partially successful, however. The best thing to do now is to discuss your concerns with your physician and see what the next step may be for you. Best, Dr. ALDO
I would recommend following up with your provider and discussing these concerns with him/her. A starch-iodine text can be done to check the activity of your sweat glands. A third treat may or may not be beneficial. It is better assessed in person and discussed with a professional. Hope this helps. Good luck.
MiraDry causing compensatory sweating in the palms - rare occurrence
I have done miraDry since 2011 and have treated hyperhidrosis since 1999. I have never seen compensatory sweating present in the palmoplantar area after ANY type of procedure for underarm hyperhidrosis, whether it is suction curettage, sympathectomy or Botox.
It is typical for patients to have combination hyperhidrosis in the palmoplantar AND axillary areas.
I have read on this forum 2 patients who have developed compensatory sweating in the lower body after miraDry. These were not my patients. This is a very rare event considering the thousands of miraDry procedures being done yearly.
However, if it is making your palmar sweating worse, don't get another miraDry treatment.
