I had my second miradry session four days ago and I seem to be sweating more than before I had it done?

Give it time
Your experience thus far with the second treatment is normal. You have to wait at least 4-6 weeks to see the reduction in sweat. As mentioned, immediately after the procedure sweat production can increase, but will lessen over the subsequent 4-6 weeks.

Sweating that continues after the procedure is common and it does not mean a failure. Give it time as the other physicians in the forum have expressed. Best of luck! Dr. ALDO
Sweating after treatment
No worries! Sweating in the days following treatment (1st or 2nd) is normal. It can be a purging of sorts after treatment as is not indicative of treatment success or failure. Wait at least 3 months following any procedure to determine what may or may not be happening.

"Breakthrough" sweating after miraDry is NOT "Phantom sweating"
Whether this occurs after the first procedure or second is the same. I always instruct patients not to worry about 'breakthrough' sweating in the week after the procedure. This is not "phantom sweating". It is real sweat.
In my practice, 90% of my patients need only a SINGLE miraDry procedure.
