"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.
We are a Platinum Plus Provider for miraDry.
It is common for patients to experience "phantom sweating" for several months after having the procedure. You are injected with tumescent which is used to numb the area prior to the microwave treatment so you may actually be experiencing the "leakage" from that. I would give it 90 days and return for a starch iodine test to determine the number of active sweat glands, and go from there.
Best of luck-Be well!#sweatingaftermiradry #phantomsweating #activesweatglands
This is a short-term problem
Occasionally patients will have an outpouring of sweat in the few days after the procedure. The glands will eventually dry up and shrink. Your doctor can do a test to assess that all the area was properly treated. Studies show that results are much better at one month that they are at one week
