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 works! It may take 2 treatments and is alittle painful but most patients say it is worth it, and would do it again.

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.  You can read about it at:
