Since I was a teen I would sweat from my hands, feet and underarms excessively but I didn't think anything of it. I didn't realize it was a problem until I became a young adult. It's bad to the point that I get depression and it stops me from living my life basically. At the age of 25 I finally confided in my mom about my problem and that's when she wanted me to get help. I learned about MiraDry and its success rate so it gave me hope. I'm very blessed because I would not have been able to get it without them. I went to my local dermatologist and they did the procedure there. They had to inject me with anesthesia in my armpits a lot of times in the whole area, and then they placed a small device on it to burn off the glands(?) and it hurt like hell in a spot that wasn't numbed enough. I was extremely happy with my results for the first couple months, and I felt great wearing colors I could never wear before. It's now my third month in and my armpits are starting to drip sweat again. I also have a huge, terrible scar right outside my armpit towards my breast that is super obvious because the doctor gave me anesthesia in the same spot several times causing it to bleed and become an open wound. I'm sure the dermatologist will recommend I get a second procedure, but if its going to wear off in 3 months again, the scars aren't going to be worth it.
