Concern about permanent scar tissue formation in both underarms following MiraDry treatment 18 months on. Can it be treated?
Doctor Answers 2
The internal scarring is a rare occurrence and might be treated with cortisone injections. Have an iodine-starch test and if your sweat glands are gone from the underarm area, another treatment won't help. I also only use level 5.

MiraDry related permanent scarring is very rare and unlikely
This is a very rare occurrence and I have never seen this occur in my patients. I have done miraDry since 2011.
In my prctice, 90% of my patients require only a SINGLE miraDry procedure at Level 5.
10% require a second procedure.
1 in 300 needed a third procedure.
