it's summer and a certain amount of sweating is normal but for some people it is a big problem out of nowhere is like my other body parts aren't sweating but just problem with our armpit sweat they say never let him see you sweat sometimes it's impossible and the results can be embarrassing in fact it can ruin a lot of clothing yeah our doctor Frank McGeorge is here this evening with a brand new treatment that permanently eliminates sweaty armpits and apparently has some other sun benefits dr. McGeorge that's right it does you know in recent years many people plagued with excessive underarm sweat have turned to Botox injections to relieve the problem unfortunately these are expensive and they're just temporary but now there's a much better solution Kelly Kersey of Dearborn has had a real problem with sweaty armpits for a long time as long as I can remember and I think when I was in junior high when starting to become more self conscious of it and trying to alter my clothes and what I would wear depending on if I thought I was gonna have an issue with armpit and it seriously affected some big moments in her life my wedding of the dress you know it wasn't just choose the wedding dress I won I wanted to make sure I chose one that wouldn't leave a lining or a stain so no chiffon or silk I had a heavy beading on that area dr. Anthony Yoona Troy plastic surgeon says it's a common problem about 1 in 5 Americans suffer from excessive underarm sweat and we typically define this as people who are sweating even if the room is cool it can be in a freezing cold air-conditioned room and I can still have a problem enter a procedure called miraDry it really is the only thing out of its kind the miraDry device uses microwaves and these microwaves will actually bypass the skin leaving the skin intact and will destroy the sweat glands below it the procedure is done in the office and starts out with tiny injections of numbing medication once the armpit is numb the miraDry device is used the handpiece suctions up a patch of skin to treat one area at a time let me know if you feel anything ok so it enters a period where it heats up the sweat glands to destroy them and then it cools afterwards now this should be pretty numb so you may feel a little bit of pulling but hopefully you won't feel any actual pain because it treats the tissue under the skin it has a bonus effect it also destroys the hair follicles so no more hairy armpits either because these sweat glands are destroyed and they don't regrow we have every reason to believe that this is as permanent as permanent can be I'm really looking forward to being able to wear whatever I want because clothes are a big deal to me we usually recommend two treatments spaced three months apart for maximal results that being said the vast majority of people will get a nice change in just one treatment the biggest risks include bruising and temporary discomfort and swelling the major downside the cost it's not covered by insurance and runs from 2,500 to 3,000 dollars for two treatments but for people who've suffered from excess sweat for years it may be money well spent Kelly says she's looking forward to the change in her life if you're not embarrassing feeling self-conscious you're not gonna be able to be yourself now Kelly reports after one treatment she has stopped sweating from her under and she would do it again although she did mention you shouldn't plan on doing anything strenuous for a couple days after the procedure because there is some soreness now you can learn much more about miraDry at clickondetroit.com slash health we're a drive but for now just under arms because people have sweating issues all over or can well that's exactly right right now it's really just limited to the armpits maybe one day there will be a smaller application for the hands or somewhere else on the body but right now it is just the armpits but it's pretty cool technology some folks oh yeah absolutely it's very annoying at worst thanks doc
