What is hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating under the arms. The body has two to four million sweat glands. Most are eccrine glands, which excrete clear, odorless perspiration to regulate body temperature through evaporation. Apocrine glands produce a thicker fluid that emits an unpleasant odor when it meets bacteria that live on the skin. Eccrine glands are primarily found on the face, hands, and feet. Apocrine glands are in the genital region. Unfortunately, underarms have both sweat and odor glands. For those with hyperhidrosis, the condition is extreme.

FAQ

How soon will I see results with miraDry treatment?

The improvement is immediate. A single miraDry treatment often provides up to 82% reduction in sweating, though in some persistent cases, a follow-up treatment is beneficial. Since the body does not make new sweat glands, once they are destroyed, results are permanent. Many people stop using an antiperspirant or deodorant. As an added benefit, treatment reduces underarm hair. This FDA-approved procedure is safe. As your body has a multitude of other sweat glands, miraDry has no negative impact on healthy cooling.
