It’s an incredibly efficient procedure.. The doctor says aside from some initial swelling and discomfort, there are no lasting side effects. we have about 2- million sweat glands throughout the body and two percent are underneath the arms.. you’re not gonna miss those sweat glands. Michelle reported back to us that her sweating problem has completely disappeared, and says she’s extremely happy with the results. Jamie Yuccas, CBS News, Briarcliff Manor, New York.
