The MiraDry hyperhidrosis treatment has been used effectively for controlling underarm sweating, otherwise known as axillary hyperhidrosis.  The patients who have excessive sweating have a condition known as hyperhidrosis in which uncontrolled perspiration affect their daily life.  Activities of daily living are often affected by the amount and volume of perspiration on the face, hand, feet, and trunk.  The MiraDry system is FDA approved for the treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis and hyperhidrosis of the armpit areas.  If you have underarm sweating and are concerned about the affects of underarm sweating on your life, the MiraDry system may be the answer for the excessive perspiration.  The MiraDry system uses nonsurgical and noninvasive energy to control the sweat glands in the axillary subcutaneous tissue, therein reducing the amount and volume of sweating. 


The initial studies with the MiraDry system have shown long term efficacy with the MiraDry system for underarm or axillary sweat glands.  If you have questions about underarm sweating and treatment of hyperhidrosis with the MiraDry system or are interested in understanding and treating hyperhidrosis in other parts of the body, Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is a board certified plastic surgeon in Los Angeles and can help you understand your treatment options.  Hyperhidrosis can cause significant emotional, social, and physical debility and can effectively impair your ability to live the normal life.
