Lasting Solution that can Make Embarrassing Underarm Sweat a Thing of the Past
Charlotte, NC, January 4, 2013 – Elizabeth Rostan, MD is one of the first physicians in the U.S. to offer the miraDry® Procedure, a new treatment option that provides a safe and lasting solution for excessive underarm sweat, a debilitating condition also known as primary axillary hyperhidrosis. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration cleared the miraDry® System following a robust, randomized, blinded clinical study that involved 120 patients at seven clinics across the U.S. and followed them for 12 months post treatment. The procedure is supported by compelling safety and efficacy data from multiple clinical studies with recent clinical data showing 90 percent efficacy and 90 percent patient satisfaction.
The miraDry® Procedure is performed in the office and takes approximately one hour. The miraDry® Procedure delivers precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the area under the arm where the sweat glands reside, and heats and eliminates the sweat glands. Since sweat glands do not regenerate, results are lasting. The procedure is non-invasive with little to no downtime, so patients can go about their normal routines after treatment. The full treatment plan requires two procedures to maximize results.
Millions of Americans suffer from excessive underarm sweat, and often suffer silently—ashamed, frustrated and embarrassed because excessive underarm sweat can interfere with many aspects of everyday life.
“Many people do not talk about how much trouble they have with excessive underarm sweating,” shares Dr. Elizabeth Rostan, “but it is extremely common, affecting up to 1 in 5 individuals. These are people that think about their sweating daily—it affects their day to day activities, how they dress, their social life, and even their work.”
“I’m excited to add miraDry to the practice as it is the first long-lasting and extremely effective treatment for axillary hyperhidrosis. MiraDry has the potential to greatly impact the lives of those who suffer from over-sweating—many currently suffer in silence,” says Rostan.
