What is excessive underarm sweating?

At least 1% of the global population suffers from excessive underarm sweating. Excessive underarm sweat is a daily struggle since it interferes with almost every aspect in life. Excessive underarm sweat may interfere with a person’s work and social life. These settings often cause people to feel anxious and frustrated over possibly ruining their clothes with sweat stains. This condition can affect a person’s emotional well-being and self-image. It can impact how they feel about themselves and cause them to worry about how others view them.

If you have excessive underarm sweat, you may be suffering from a medical condition known as axillary hyperhidrosis. Axillary hyperhidrosis is a condition in which the underarm sweat glands are overactive, producing much more sweat than is needed to cool the body. If you think you may suffer from axillary hyperhidrosis, speak to a physician and ask if the MiraDry procedure is right for you.

Why do our underarms sweat?

Our bodies sweat to regulate body temperature. Armpits have two sweat glands known as the eccrine and apocrine sweat glands. Underarm sweat is produced through these glands, which are located just below the surface of the skin. The eccrine glands secrete a clear, odourless fluid and respond to elevated body temperature by helping to cool the body. The apocrine glands produce a milkier fluid that is odourless until it combines with the bacteria on skin. This is what gives underarm sweat its distinctive odour.

For those who sweat excessively, these underarm sweat glands are overactive. The glands turn on when they should not and producing much more sweat than is needed to cool the body. Excessive sweaters can produce four or five times more sweat than what is considered normal.

What is our recommendation as an excessive underarm sweating treatment?

At SpaMedica, we have a specific procedure, the MiraDry treatment procedure, to help target and alleviate patients from excessive underarm sweating. The procedure is safe and clinically proven to provide a significant reduction of underarm sweat. It is a lasting solution and wonderful excessive sweating treatment that can solve your excessive underarm sweating and embarrassment.

The MiraDry system is a quick, non-invasive procedure performed at SpaMedica in Toronto, ON. The MiraDry treatment procedure uses an FDA cleared non-invasive technology to provide lasting results. The procedure uses precisely controlled energy to eliminate underarm sweat glands. The sweat glands do not grow back once removed, providing exceptional and lasting results.

Other treatment options like antiperspirants and toxins only temporarily disable the sweat glands for specific durations. Surgery is another option, but that involves risks. The MiraDry treatment in procedure is a non-invasive solution that provides lasting results.
