When do I get my second MiraDry treatment?
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. The time frame between treatments will not affect the results or make the treatment less effective. I recommend you have the treatment when it is convenient for you!
Waiting for 2nd miraDry treatment
No, it is recommended to wait at least 3 months
but if you wait longer it will not alter your treatment for miraDry and
It is perfectly fine waiting longer than the 3 month waiting period between Miradry treatments and will not
change the results. The sweat glands that were destroyed in your initial treatment are permanently gone and cannot return. Hope this helps.
How long should you wait in between miraDry treatments?
In our office, we like you to wait a minimum of 8 weeks in between treatments, but waiting longer than that won't hinder your results.
There is no concern with waiting to undergo your 2nd treatment, it will not be less effective. The cells that were destroyed with your 1st session are permanently gone and will not return. Whatever sweat you are noticing is from the small % that were not destroyed initially. MiraDry has an 82% reduction in glands, so there will be some that remain functional. Although over 80-85% of patients are satisfied with a single treatment, for those that do have some persistent sweating the 2nd treatment should be highly effective.
Timing for 2nd miraDry procedure
No. There is no data that shows that 3 months or 4 months makes a difference.
Thoroughness of miraDry energy delivery is the only factor that influences outcomes, as well as the severity of the underlying hyperhidrosis.
In our practice, 90% of our patients require ONLY a single miraDry procedure.

There is absolutely no problem in waiting. Patients need to do this all the time. Remember, you are born with the number of sweat glands you will ever make. With your 1st treatment, you destroyed a percentage of them. Once destroyed, they will no regenerate. The sweating you are experiencing is from the subset of sweat glands that were not destroyed the first round, not from new ones being produced. Good luck

Waiting more than 3 months
There is no problem with waiting more than 3 months in between treatments. Three months is a minimum, not a maximum or absolute. There is no effect on the efficacy of treatment if you wait.
