Still sweat on my right armpit after level 5 treatment?
Doctor Answers 8
Thanks for this important question. One treatment of MiraDry will reduce 80% of the sweat and smell from the underarm. It also reduces 70% of the hair regardless of color. Some patients need an additional treatment to get drier. You should return to your treating physician and discuss your concerns. They can perform a starch-iodine test and see where your sweating from as well. Second treatments are usually done at a 50% rate, but it may vary from doctor tor doctor. Best, Dr. ALDO
Hi and thank you for your question!
Always best to first follow up with your physican with questions and concerns. I can tell you that we ask all of our patients to wait 3 months in between treatments, so you can fully assess your result during that time. When we first started doing level 5 on patients, we thought most patients would need only one. However, what we've seen is that there are still some patients that need the 2nd treatment and in a rare case even a 3rd. There is a theory that in some areas the glands may be deeper than others and that could be why some areas are more resistant. Miradry is definitely the best and most permanent non-surgical option for controlling sweat and odor. I had the procedure and no longer need deodorant!.

I do think it is a little early so I would advise you wait a few months before making a decision on having the next treatment. It is important to always consult with your doctor who preformed the procedure. Good Luck!
Permanent sweat reduction with miraDry may require more than one treatment.

The difference is that we use level 5 on almost EVERY patient, and we do a thorough job, going over the entire area not once, but 2.5 times ! This saves you over 50% and avoids a second procedure in 90% of cases.
We have done a third procedure in only 3 patients. These patients came from other practices in the U.S.
