New Treatment for Excessive Underarm Sweating
Don't Live With Smelly Underarms!
Have you ever experienced excessive underarm sweating? If you have, you most likely have a hard time talking about this embarrassing issue. I tried different remedies for a long time to get rid of this annoying problem. The truth is that many people deal with excessive sweating in the underarm area and they try so hard to get rid of it. (As a result of the extra sweat, you might experience underarm pain, itchy underarms, underarm pimples, underarm burning, or other underarm problems. It’s the worst!)
After researching, I discovered a safe treatment that would help with stop the extra sweat I was dealing with. I found a treatment called miraDry that seems to be an effective and safe solution that allows me to enjoy being out in public again.
Dealing With Underarm Sweat
A certain amount of underarm sweat is perfectly normal. However, some people who deal with excessive sweat actually have a condition called hyperhidrosis. If you’ve ever refused a night out with friends or a special event because of this issue, you’re not alone.
In fact, 1 out of 5 adults deal with overactive sweat glands which can be embarrassing to go out in public. (I mean who wants to go out with their underarms smelling like onions.) I tried everything: body mist on my underarms, apple cider vinegar for the underarm sweat, driclor, lemon juice on my underarms, petroleum jelly, and even botox trying to eradicate the underarm sweating. Nothing worked.
The good news is: there’s finally hope with miraDry treatments.
miraDry Is FDA Approved For Excessive Sweating
There are some short-term treatments for underarm sweating such as prescription medications or special antiperspirants. Some people have even tried Botox injections which only gave them temporary relief. While these may work for the average sweat glands, they don’t really help those who suffer from hyperhidrosis.
miraDry is a FDA approved treatment that greatly reduces underarm sweating. Since 2012, it has targeted sweat glands in the underarms that work overtime. Most importantly, this treatment is non-invasive and long-lasting. Those are words every patient loves to hear.
miraDry Is Effective!
Did you know the human body contains over 4 million sweat glands? I had no idea. Of course, that means your body also has the ability to sweat more.
MiraDry works to get rid of some of those sweat glands that create moisture and odor when you don’t want them to.
When I read about this treatment, I also read that once miraDry gets rid of the sweat glands, they don’t come back. That’s right. This really is a long-lasting solution.
How Does It Work?
Since several antiperspirants and showers every day wasn’t working for me, I decided to research miraDry some more. I found that the process is not only non-invasive, but it’s also quick. Who doesn’t love an option like that?
I read that the treatment uses energy on the underarm sweat glands to eliminate them. I didn’t worry about it destroying my body’s natural cooling ability.
Only 2% of your sweat glands are in your underarms so it doesn’t hurt your normal sweating ability.
Who Should Consider miraDry?
- Are you 18 or older?
- Do you have sweat marks on your clothing?
- Does your antiperspirant fail to deliver results?
- Do you need to shower multiple times a day due to underarm odor?
What This Treatment Did For Me
Aesthetica Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center is a great place to go for this treatment. I called earlier to schedule a consultation and see if this treatment was a possibility at all. This is my experience.
My Consultation Experience
One of the Registered Nurses did my consultation and I was completely comfortable with her.
I was able to talk freely about my embarrassing underarm sweat and how it interferes with living my life. She was completely understanding and asked me some questions about previous treatments I had tried.
She said this treatment would allow me to move and dance around in public again which was a relief.
The Treatment Process
Before the treatment day, the nurse told me everything I needed to know about miraDry and what the actual treatment process would look like.
- MiraDry is best for people who want to eliminate excessive sweat in their underarm region.
- She said that this treatment would use energy to eliminate the sweat glands and greatly reduce the amount of sweat I have.
- Once the treatment gets rid of the sweat glands, they don’t come back.
- I would have this treatment in Dr. Chang’s office and it would only take about an hour!
- Most people see results in 1 treatment but some have 2 treatments to ensure optimal results.
- With this treatment, I would finally enjoy spending time with other people and not worry about odor.
After she explained this to me, I was ready to schedule my appointment and finally live my life without worrying about sweating through my clothes.

What to Expect For Recovery Time
If you have the miraDry treatment, here’s what you can expect after the session:
- Most people experience some swelling and soreness at the target site. This is perfectly normal.
- The nurse recommended some ice packs or even over-the-counter pain reliever. The discomfort can last a few days.
- Unless you usually do excessive lifting or other vigorous activities, you can return to normal life immediately.
- You should wait a few days to return to your normal exercise routines.
I’m so thrilled to experience the results from my miraDry treatment. I no longer deal with excessive underarm sweat or embarrassing odors. There was no downtime to slow my life down and I now enjoy my favorite activities and events with friends and family.
