miraDry Zaps Your Pits to Stop Sweating

by Range

Sweating is part of the summer. No matter where you are, especially with the heatwaves of this year, you’ve probably sweat quite a bit over these last few months. If you tend to sweat a lot from your pits, and would like it to stop soaking your clothes, you could always microwave them so that they completely stop sweating.

miraDry uses microwave energy to zap your armpits and kill off 22,000 to 30,000 sweat glands in that area, reducing the amount of sweat that you generate when you get hot. It’s supposed to work in 90% of patients and reduce sweating by 82%. The effect is supposed to last for a year, but you’ll need a couple of sessions for this to work well.

Aside from evaporating your sweat glands, it will also evaporate some of your cash as this procedure costs $3,000. For some reason, it doesn’t sound like a good idea to mess with you body’s biological processes this way. What happens if you overheat? Sweating is a nature’s way of cooling us down.

    I would never do such thing to my body as it is totally unnatural. Sweating is a natural process by which our body keeps itself cool,their is nothing to be ashamed if some one over sweats.

  2. Range says:

    Some doctors have said that this could kill you from heatstroke, if you go outside during a really hot day. Since your body can’t cool itself effectively, it’s really bad news on any hot day, unless you stay inside and don’t work out at all.
