Everyone sweats. The truth is that when you sweat normally, your body is simply regulating your temperature. That being said, there are some circumstances when sweating is just not desirable. Individuals who suffer from hyperhidrosis have excessive underarm sweating. These individuals sweat so bad that normal or prescription strength antiperspirant has no effect on them. These people sweat regardless of the circumstance that they are in. They could be playing sports, or they could simply be out to dinner with friends. The sweating is going to be so profound that it will actually seep through their clothing and make their clothing wet and stained with sweat. If this sounds like your situation, consider miraDry®.
miraDry® is a relatively new treatment that is available in the United States. It has been used in Europe and Asia for many years. This device has been designed to prevent excessive underarm sweating. The FDA evaluated how effective this treatment was. And one of the things that they saw with miraDry® is that not only is it a powerful tool in getting rid of unwanted underarm sweat, but it can also help people get rid of the foul smell that develops from underarm sweat.
There was a study that was done examining a group of people who used miraDry®. The results showed that more than 93 percent of individuals who used the procedure had a reduction in foul sweaty odor, and 83 percent had an overall improvement in the amount of sweating under their arms. The microwaves that are produced by the product have been specifically designed to treat the sweat glands that a person has in their armpits.
The nice thing about the miraDry® procedure is that it is not invasive. The procedure is performed using a handheld device that sends electromagnetic energy directly to the overactive sweat glands that you want to destroy.
miraDry® is a wonderful tool. It has helped many individuals who have been plagued by the embarrassment that excessive sweating underneath the arms causes. It gives them a sense of tranquility and confidence that comes from knowing that they can go out with their friends and not worry about sweating through their clothing.
