Treatments for Hyperhidrosis
Thank you for your question JujuBeats143. Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a common condition that affects 1.3 million people in the United States. Botox works well to treat hyperhidrosis. It can be used on the underarms, palms, or soles. People enjoy their results for 6-12 months, which is longer than when Botox is used on the face (3-4 months). The more treatments a person gets, the longer it lasts.
Miradry is an alternate treatment using microwave energy that is more permanent and requires one to two treatments. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!

Miradry is the only FDA approved device that helps permanently eliminate underarm sweat and odor. People who suffer from sweating that leads to embarrassing situations and staining of garments in addition to the odor issues can benefit from this quick and easy in office procedure. Unlike botox , the results are permanent and much cheaper over the course of a lifetime. It utilizes energy in the microwave range that permanently dries up sweat glands and therefore reduces odor. The procedure takes approximately 1 hour in the office to perform with no downtime and is painless. 80% of people need only 1 treatment. Occasionally 20 % may need a second treatment. I suggest going to the miradry website and going to the physician locator to find an office closest to you.

MiraDry destroys sweat glands
MiraDry is not a surgical procedure, so it does not "remove" the glands. It is an external treatment that destroys the sweat and odor glands of the axilla by microwave. The treatment is permanent. Most patients need only one treatment although some will need two treatments.
MiraDry Targets Sweat Glands
MiraDry is an economical system that uses energy to target and destroy the sweat and odor glands in your underarm. Once those glands are destroyed they do not grow back. Most patients require 1-2 treatments, with a minimum of 3 months between treatments. Best wishes, Dr. Aldo:-)
