Perspiring is a natural way your body lowers its surface temperature. However some people experience excessive underarm sweat, which may be caused by overactive sweat glands, meaning they turn on when they should be at rest, and produce more sweat than what’s needed to cool the body. This condition may be extremely difficult to control with over-the-counter antiperspirants.
The miraDry® procedure is a safe, clinically proven, FDA-cleared solution for significantly reducing underarm sweat. Using precisely controlled electromagnetic energy, the miraDry® procedure targets and heats the sweat glands, eliminating them for good. It’s completely safe to eliminate underarm sweat glands, Your body contains more than 4 million sweat glands, and only 2% of them are in your underarms, so eliminating such a small percentage does not affect your body’s ability to cool itself.
Recovery from the miraDry® procedure is short. You can expect minimal to no downtown after the miraDry® procedure and should be able to return to normal activities or work immediately, and can resume exercise within several days.
