Is miraDry a procedure that lasts long?
Since puberty I have fought vast sweat and odor from my armpits. Just standing at my computer at work I sweat like I just ran a mile. I have heard about miraDry and I am inclined to try it. I really want to be able to stand in public without feeling ashamed of myself. I want to be sure that the procedure has seen successes before getting it done. Does miraDry last? Is it a long term solution for my excessive sweating?
Yes, MiraDry does work -- but it often requires several treatments -- and the price does add up. I have developed my own, one-time surgical technique for armpit sweating (technically called axillary hyperhidrosis) which I call "Sweat Lipo." The results have been long lasting.
