miraDry before and after

What causes excessive sweating?

Profuse sweating, also called hyperhidrosis, is a condition in which the body produces more sweat than is desirable.

Worldwide, an average of about 3% of the population is affected by excessive sweating.

Research indicates that there is an inherited genetic component to the condition, and it’s often seen in more than one family member.

Other triggers appear to include overactive thyroid and low blood pressure.

Of course, men tend to sweat about 40% more than women do, for a variety of reasons.

How does MiraDry work?

miraDry Treatment

Approved by the FDA in 2011, MiraDry uses electromagnetic waves to disable sweat glands in the underarm area.

The technology is non-invasive, and treatments take only about 90 minutes.

After one or two MiraDry treatments sweating in the underarms is completely stopped, and the results last forever.

Studies have shown that the treatment reduces sweating in the underarm area by around 80%.

Best of all, the side effects from MiraDry are generally very mild.

There’s a bit of swelling for a few days, but ice packs and over-the-counter analgesics help soothe the area.

But…. Don’t I need to sweat, at least a little?

Sweating is certainly a universal phenomenon, so some people think the body must sweat through the underarms in order to be healthy.

Fortunately, we don’t need the underarms to sweat… Spread throughout the body there are of other sweat glands that actually help to cool off the body but underarm sweat doesn’t help in cooling off the body.

The average person’s body has about 2 million sweat glands, but only a tiny fraction of them are located in the axillary (under arm) region.
