(WTVR) – We’re born with two to four million sweat glands, but they`re not all created equal.

 Some people sweat more than others, and it can lead to embarrassing problems.

 A new FDA approved treatment could help.

 The area where sweating is an issue is numbed,  and then a device, called Miradry, is run over the skin.

It removes sections of the skin, and then exposes them to microwaves, destroying sweat glands.

The procedure can cost anywhere from 2 to 3 thousand dollars and insurance does not cover it.
