Experimental: MiraDry ® treatment
MiraDry ® is the trademarked name of a non-invasive thermolytic technology which utilizes a microwave energy-based mechanism targeted for eccrine gland reduction at the dermal-fat interface.
Each participant will be scheduled two MiraDry ® treatment appointments approximately three months apart.

- Primary effectiveness of the MiraDry treatment system (Hyperhidrosis Disease Severity Scale (HDSS) [ Time Frame: 1 year ]To evaluate the effectiveness of the miraDry ® treatment system for psychosocial functioning in patients heavily affected by axillary hyperhidrosis. Patients will be asked to complete the Hyperhidrosis Disease Severity Scale (HDSS) as a prescreening survey. The HDSS (below) is a diagnostic tool that qualitatively measures (Likert scaled 1-4) disease-specific severity of the patient's condition based on the degree to which daily activities are impacted. This will be done at baseline, during treatment, at the 6 month follow-up visit, and 1 year follow-up visit.
