If the procedure is done will the sweating increase in the groin area because it has the same sweat glands as the underarm?

Compensatory sweating after miraDry is very rare
It is very unlikely for miraDry to cause compensatory sweating. I have only read about 2 patients on this forum that developed compensatory sweating after miraDry. To give you more information, we rarely, if ever, see patients get compensatory sweating when underarm sweating is blocked with Botox.
Compensatory sweating is a common occurrence after sympathectomy.
MiraDry and Compensatory Sweating
Underarm and the groin
MiraDry directly treats the sweat glands and odor glands. Treating under your arms should have no effect on your groin.
