When To do The Second MiraDry
Hi and thank you for your question!
We find that many patients with significant sweating, hyperhidrosis &/or odor issues do need that 2nd treatment. There's no question that miraDry is extremely successful for most people. However, as with most non-surgical procedure there is a very small percentage of non-responders (
In my practice, I have found that many patients needs two treatments, especially if they had been diagnosed with hyperhidrosis. Most patients have 50% reduction in sweat and odor after the first treatment, and another 30% reduction in a 2nd treatment, which can be performed 1-2 months later.Patients with moderate sweating typically need one treatment. Patients with severe sweating typically need two treatments to achieve optimal results. Few patients with severe sweating desire a third treatment.
MiraDry do I need a 2nd treatment
In our practice, 90% of our patients need only a single miraDry procedure at level 5. The company recommended 2 treatments spaced 3 months apart.
Very few people need a third treatment.

Hello--I am assuming that by treatment you mean MiraDry--the non-surgical treatment for excess underarm sweating/odor. Although it is sometimes advertised as a 1 time treatment, my experience is that very few if any people require only 1 treatment even at maximal intensity (level 5). I have always needed to treat my patients twice, and occasionally a 3rd time for the best results in people with severe hyperhidrosis. I typically recommend 2-3 months in between treatments so you are about right as far as scheduling your 2nd treatment. Typically for a $3000 fee that includes 2 treatments so I would check with the location where you had the first treatment to see if 2 were included. My guess would be it is. Good luck!
