Plano, TX, May 21, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Dr. Samuel Lam, a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon
in Dallas, Texas, and owner of Lam Facial Plastics, is pleased to announce that he is one of the first physicians in the United States to offer the revolutionary new miraDry
procedure to treat excessive underarm sweating. The procedure utilizes electromagnetic energy, precisely delivered to the area under the arm where the sweat glands reside, to eliminate the glands and reduce or eliminate the incidence of underarm sweat.
The miraDry procedure is designed to treat primary axillary hyperhidrosis, the medical term that refers to a condition resulting in excessive sweating under the arms due to sweat glands that produce more sweat than is needed to cool the body. This condition causes embarrassment and can be debilitating to those who suffer from it as a result of the social and emotional pressures it places on the afflicted individual.
The miraDry procedure works by heating and eliminating sweat glands under the arms by precisely directing controlled electromagnetic energy to the areas in which excessive sweating under the arms occurs. The energy heats and eliminates the sweat glands, and since sweat glands do not regenerate, the results are long-lasting. The non-invasive procedure is performed right in a physician’s office and takes about one hour to complete. Only a local anesthetic is required during the procedure and patients can resume most activities immediately following treatment. For maximum effectiveness, two procedures are performed, spaced a few months apart.
miraDry has undergone multiple clinical studies and clinical data shows that patients treated with the miraDry procedure effectively experienced a reduction in the amount of sweat produced, and that two years post-treatment, sweat reduction and quality of life factors were sustained. The data from these studies shows a 90% efficacy rate and 90% patient satisfaction rate with the procedure. In addition to compelling efficacy data and satisfaction responses obtained in these clinical studies, the treatment also has been shown to be safe.
“Millions of Americans suffer from excessive underarm sweat, and the condition can have a huge impact on a person’s quality of life,” explains Dr. Lam. “Most people are ashamed and embarrassed by their axillary hyperhidrosis, and it can interfere with many aspects of everyday life, from anxiety at work to avoidance of leisure activities. Although many people suffer in silence, I often see patients looking for effective options to treat this frustrating condition. The miraDry Procedure is a safe, effective and lasting option that eliminates sweat glands under the arm and can stop excessive underarm sweat from negatively affecting people’s lives.”
miraDry provides a lasting solution to excessive underarm sweating, unlike some other treatment options, which are designed to only temporarily disable the sweat glands. The only other more permanent option is surgery, which has inherent risks and involves pain and a long recovery time.
