Everybody sweats. It can be embarrassing and gross, but it is a normal part of life. Most people have some control over when they sweat. By this, we mean that most people will only sweat if they’re hot, if they’re under stress, or if they are exerting themselves through exercise or some other vigorous activity. However, there are other individuals who battle with hyperhidrosis in their armpits. It doesn’t matter if it’s hot or cold outside or if they are nervous or relaxed – their armpits are sweating and sweating excessively. It is understandable that this can be embarrassing. If you have been embarrassed by excessive underarm sweating, why not consider miraDry®?
miraDry® is non-invasive. It has been approved by the FDA as a way to help people live life actively without the frustrations and concerns that come with excessive underarm sweat. In addition to eliminating excessive underarm sweat, excessive underarm odor is also eliminated. This means that you can feel confident that your underarms are going to be dry regardless of the situation that you are in.
miraDry® works by eliminating some of the sweat glands and odor glands in your underarms. Now, you might be thinking to yourself, don’t I need my sweat glands? The answer is yes. However, you don’t need all of them. Your body has approximately two million sweat glands. The sweat glands that are in your armpits account for somewhere around two percent of all of your sweat glands. Even if these sweat glands are deactivated, you will still be able to perspire normally elsewhere. So your body will still be able to keep itself cool and regulate its temperature.
One of the awesome things about this treatment is that the results it produces are instantaneous. When your sweat glands have been deactivated, they don’t come back. Another nice thing about this treatment is that it can be adjusted to meet your personal wants and needs.
miraDry® can leave you feeling confident in yourself again. You will not be worried about the color of clothing you wear because you will know that regardless of if you wear dark or light clothing, you’re not going to leave sweat stains behind. You won’t feel uncomfortable being close to other people because you will know that your body is not producing an excessive amount of odor.
