Stopping underarm sweat?

There's two ways that work best: Botox which has to be done about every 6 months or MiraDry for which patients typically reduce their sweating permanently by 75-80 % from their baseline level with one treatment. To get drier in a hot country like Somalia, you may need two treatments of MiraDry 3 months after the initial procedure.

MiraDry is a great treatment to help permanently reduce sweat glands in the armpit with minimal downtime.  1 to 2 treatments is whats typically recommended for an overall 80% reduction of wetness and odor. Hope this helps.  Good luck.

MiraDry in Somalia and UAE

I did train a doctor from the UAE to do the miraDry. You can probably travel there to get it done or visit the U.S. for this procedure. There are many centers in New York, including ours that perform the miraDry procedure. We are a Platinum Plus Provider for miraDry.Hratch L Karamanoukian MD FACS

Sweating in bed

MiraDry has had excellent results for your problem.  You will still sweat everywhere else on your body if you are hot.  Sweat evaporation cools the body and helps to regulate body temperature.  If the humidity in the air is really high like in Houston, Texas and you are outside in the summer, your sweat will not evaporate and you will just stay wet.  MiraDry will keep your underarms dry but that is only 2% of your total sweat glands.

Arm pit sweat

Miradry is a treatment for underarm sweat that takes about an hour and half with permanent results.  Botox is another option. It works well but it needs to be repeated every 4-6 months.  I hope this helps!
