will this reduce or eliminate the oder? My shirts are so hard to wash because I use deoderant to mask the oder. I am 16 years old. I exfoliate, shave and scrub. I tried drysol, it iritated my skin and every deoderant and anti persperant that I can find. Please help. What else can I do?
My Question is Regarding Miradry. Odor is More my Problem than Sweat. Will This Procedure Help?

Throw away your deodorant/antiperspirant!
MiraDry procedure helps sweat and armpit odor
#miraDry uses electromagnetic energy (safe microwaves)
which is proven to be the ideal method for treating the sweat and odor glands in the underarm. It creates targeted heat in the area where glands reside and safely eliminates them.

MIRADRY FOR UNDERARM ODOR
Best of luck!
2 treatments are needed, spaced 3 months apart.
Miradry is FDA approved for both odor and sweat reduction. The real advance with this procedure is that it is minimally invasive with very little downtime and has approximately an 80-85% reduction with two treatments. The results are permanent and unless a patient wants more reduction, third treatment, there is no need to repeat treatments.
Surgical options are available but have significant downtime and risks and the neurotoxins like Botox are temporary requiring multiple treatments.
MiraDry for Sweat and Odor Reduction
Miradry is a great treatment for you. It is the only FDA approved sweat and odor reducing procedure available on the market. The microwave technology targets the eccrine (sweat) glands and the aprocrine (odor) glands in the underarms. Two treatments are recommended usually 3 months apart.

MiraDry for underarm sweat and odor
Yes, the MiraDry procedure helps eliminate odor related to sweat, which is also known as bromhidrosis. The MiraDry procedure utilizes microwave technology to selectively target and eliminate sweat glands in the armpits by focusing electromagnetic waves at a specific level in the body where sweat glands are located. MiraDry is the only device on the market that is able to eliminate both eccrine (normal sweat) apocrine ("smelly" sweat) glands. Botox injections also work to help decrease (non-smelly) sweating, but results are more temporary as injections need to be repeated every 4-6 months with Botox effects wearing off near the end of that time frame. MiraDry is the only FDA-approved procedure that offers long-lasting results and the only procedure that has been shown in studies to treat "smelly" sweat. Studies demonstrate that results last up to 2 years and are likely permanent as sweat glands do not regenerate. At the present time, both Botox and MiraDry are only approved for those 18 years of age and older.
