It is unacceptable how little information there has been regarding these trials. Like most, I have had severe palmo-plantar hyperhidrosis since birth and have been reliant on other therapies for well over a decade. I need this treatment, and will pay for it. There have been cures for underarm sweating for a long long time, we need something for hands and feet. I have spent over 2000 hours of my life with hands and feet in iontophoresis trays, bear in mind pulsed current machines are fairly recent so most of these hours were also spent in pain. PULL YOUR FINGER OUT miraDry or at least give us an update. What the hell have these people been doing?

Who knows; maybe they can't make the apparatus work well. It is difficult as I understand it , as it can damage the hands/feet (unlike the devise used for underarm sweating that has some "headroom" so the microwaves don't reach the nerves).
I wouldn't want to have my hands paralyzed by this device.

The thing that avoid frying axillary nerves/ganglion is saline injections ... it works as a cold cushion protecting the tissue behind eccrine/appocrine sweat glands and hair

In hands would be tricky to apply this same technique, since most of sweat glands are located between fingers, an area so thin and full of nerves and bones!

Wow, really? most of the sweat glands between the fingers ? I must be different then as I have severe hyperhidrosis in the hands and the amount of sweat is the same in the palm, between the fingers and above the fingers (back side of the fingers). I can see it as the beads of sweat form and drip down. So I would say that my sweatglands are pretty evenly distributed in the palm back side of fingers and between them. If anything, in my case, the palm and back of fingers seem to sweat more than the in between-fingers part.
Here are a 2 images of my hands:

Sorry, I am not part of the study anymore so I know as much about it as you guys do. But based on those replies from previous posts. Seems like they are progressing if they are planing to release it in 2017-2018. Fingers crossed everyone.

Anybody saw this?? Found it on miramar website

Does miraDry treat hands and feet?

The currently available device should not be used to treat hands and feet. Using a special applicator, we conducted a research study for palmar hyperhidrosis at 3 study sites in the United States. The treatment regimen consisted of multiple treatments over a period of months followed by 6 months of post treatment study visits for monitoring. The study is now closed and we are pursuing commercialization of this applicator sometime in 2018.

Looks like it was successful and will be commercialized in 2018!!

That's great news! Hopefully the other trials went better than the OP's did. Even if the device doesn't work, it gives me hope that there are companies out there who are researching ways to cure HH. All they needed is some incentive ($$$). If they knew just how many people out there suffer from HH, then a cure equals $$$. Hopefully, companies are realizing this and more companies direct resources to find a cure for HH. Maybe a cure will be found in our lifetime!

Why is there no reaction to this news??
Are you all skeptical?

I would say I'm skeptical. Let's see what they actually put on market. Maybe another over priced machine. I guess we'll just wait and see.

Makes sense. I was also surprised the lack of media coverage for this breakthrough.
I remember reading so many articles on Miradry when it first came up.

I'm sure it's an expensive proposition for companies to put money into HH when the overall return is probably miniscule especially when insurance doesn't always cover treatment.

Cancer is a money maker. Can you imagine if a cure was released the devastation it would cause to the industry and how many people would be out of work? It's a real money maker as is most major diseases. HH is just not high on the totem pole.

Besides fighting HH I'm also fighting an invisible illness that's either somewhere along the lines of Fibromyalgia and Lyme disease. It's not a cash cow, yet many people suffer with me. My chances of being treated is probably the same as someone curing HH. Many snake oil potions, drinks, vitamins and a great niche for chiropractors. Unfortunately, not much works. HH at least has a few things at best to control what we have at best.

Ya, who knows how well it actually works, I've put a lot of time and money into other ""cures" that were supposed to work and didn't, and so I'm skeptical too. Is it going to effectively treat the WHOLE hand? time will tell... sooo...cautiously skeptical untill it comes out and someone tries it.
+money is a concern, it's expensive ... and a bit dangerous.
