Dr. Jay Kulkin from WIFH answers a reader’s question about underarm sweating and odor.
Q: Even though I use antiperspirant, I sweat a lot under my arms. Is there anything safe I can do to help?
Yes, a non-invasive FDA-approved procedure called miraDry can use microwave technology to eliminate underarm sweating and odor. This procedure permanently destroys underarm sweat glands, and the glands do not regenerate. You will not have additional sweating in other areas, and any soreness or swelling typically clears within a week.
