Perspiration is a normal physiological phenomenon. It is your body’s way of trying to regulate temperature. Sweat glands act as a ventilation system where the liquid (sweat) released onto our skin has a cooling effect as it evaporates. Sweat on itself does not have a smell. However, the sweat produced by glands in the armpits contains proteins that are broken down by bacteria in these areas. The by-products of this process produce the odor. If you had enough of this annoying sweating problem, there is a simple and permanent solution - miraDry. MiraDry is the only FDA approved device that permanently removes sweat glands and odor from your armpits. This is a non-invasive procedure where a local anesthetic is used to numb the area, then electromagnetic energy is applied to destroy the glands.

Excessive Sweating (miraDry) Q&A
Is miraDry right for me?
Sweating is a normal body function. However, excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis, that occurs uncontrollably even when you are not nervous or active, is a dysfunction in the central nervous system that causes your body to produce much more sweat than required for thermoregulation. This is often a source of stress and embarrassment for people affected with this condition. If you are suffering from similar symptoms and are ready for a solution, miraDry may be an ideal treatment for you.
