Maheeda Pays N500k to Have Her Sweat Glands Destroyed
Maheeda is the latest celebrity to undergo the MiraDry procedure which reduces a person’s rate of sweating by 82 percent.
“Just finished having my MiraDry ….. a bit painful at the beginning but after that went well,” the controversial nudist said on her Instagram, adding that she is “hoping for a great result“, plus she plunged a whopping 1500 euros to get this done.

However, what Maheeda didn’t state is that this procedure is achieved by destroying 22,000-30,000 underarm sweat glands, and that the treatment puts people at risk of having their nerves permanently damaged.
According to Dr Mercola, though MiraDry reduces excessive sweating and is FDA approved, the side effects are quite scary as they include, “damaged hair follicles, sparser hair growth, swelling (which can be severe), numbness, weakness and/or tingling of the arm(s), nerve damage.”
There are worries that microwaving one’s underarms will come with serious health issues that are yet to be ascertained for now, and echoing Dr Mercol’s worries is this review of the treatment.
As culled from Dr Mercola’s wall:
“I had my first miraDry treatment two weeks ago. The device was set to level 2. I had 55 lidocaine shots in each underarm which were fairly uncomfortable but manageable. Underarm sweat has drastically been reduced although not 100%…
The procedure itself was virtually painless EXCEPT one instance which was extremely painful and alarming. I’m convinced it damaged the Ulnar nerve in my right arm. I have a constant numb tingling soreness on the underside of my forearm from my elbow to my wrist. This has not improved at all since two days after the treatment. My left arm is fine…
Very little information is available as this is such a new procedure. I’ve read the official FDA documentation on clinical trials, and the side effects on subjects was vague and follow ups were minimal. I’m getting increasingly concerned since there has been no real improvement and I’m fearful of permanent nerve damage.”
