miraDry: the answer to bothersome underarm sweat.

About Sweat

Why do we sweat?

Our bodies produce sweat to help us cool down when we’re overheated.

How is sweat produced?

Underarm sweat is produced through two types of sweat glands located just below the surface of the skin. The eccrine secrete a clear, odorless fluid to help cool the body. The apocrine glands produce a thicker fluid that gives underarm sweat its distinctive odor.

Why do some people sweat more than others?

Some people have overactive sweat glands, meaning they frequently turn on when they should be at rest, and they produce much more sweat than what’s needed to cool the body. Some peoples’ glands can produce four or five times more sweat than normal.

Is it unusual to sweat a lot?

Not in the least. It’s a common problem that affects millions of people. In fact, 1 in 5 Americans say they sweat excessively.
