Everybody sweats. In most cases, it’s a mild annoyance. After playing sports, going for a run, being under a little bit of stress, or sitting in a hot environment, a little bit of perspiration is normal. Unfortunately, there are many individuals who are battling with hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis is a condition where a person sweats excessively. Their sweating is so uncontrolled that it actually robs them of their ability to enjoy life. Hyperhidrosis is not life-threatening, but many people do feel like it completely destroys their social life. If you are battling with an excess of perspiration and you feel that it is having a negative impact on your life, this may be the time to learn more about MiraDry.
An individual battling with hyperhidrosis has very sweaty armpits. At first, this may not seem like the biggest deal in the world until you think about how this really impacts your life. Excessive sweating limits the clothing that you can wear. So while your friends are out there wearing clothing that’s full of vibrant colors, you’re looking for clothing that’s as dark as possible so that you can hide your excessive sweating from your friends.
It is understandable that hyperhidrosis is going to have an impact on your self-esteem. In just a few seconds, you can go from being a person who has confidence in themselves and end up being a person who feels extremely conscious about the way that they look. Dealing with constant hyperhidrosis may make you feel depressed. Constantly being self-conscious about the way you look can rob you of the joy of experiencing a lot of different circumstances. You can understand how frustrating that must be. Although hyperhidrosis is annoying, it is not something that you are forced to deal with indefinitely.
MiraDry is a procedure that you can use to address hyperhidrosis in your underarms. This is a procedure that has received FDA approval, and it can safely get rid of excessive underarm sweating. The procedure works by effectively deactivating and destroying some of the sweat glands, as well as the glands that cause odor in your armpits. As a result, you are left feeling dry and confident regardless of where you are.
MiraDry is a safe procedure. Some people worry that deactivating the sweat glands underneath their arms will inhibit their body’s ability to cool them down. This is not the case. Your body has millions of sweat glands. The sweat glands underneath your arms represent approximately two percent of your body’s sweat glands. This means that you will feel no negative impact by deactivating the sweat glands.
