Is using Lidocaine 2.5% prilocaine 2.5 % recommended before mira dry?

Sweating with MiraDry.
Thanks for this question Rob. The topical anesthetic will not affect the results of MiraDry, but it is not needed. We only use injected local and our patients do very well with this technique. The intensity in sweat reduction is related to your sweating severity before the procedure. I suggest checking the sweat gland viability with your doctor using an iodine-starch test before your second procedure. Best wishes, Dr. ALDO
Topical anesthetic before treatment
Applying topical Lidocaine combinations prior to treatment does not effect your Miradry treatment or results. It's impossible to say what may or may not be happening after your first treatment- there are many factors to consider. At what level were you treated? How long ago? Have you had a starch iodine test to see if you are sweating in some areas but not others? Talk to the provider that treated you prior to your 2nd treatment and find out what can be changed, if anything. Many patients that are excessive sweaters do require more than one treatment so don't be discouraged. Good luck.
