New Treatment for Excessive Underarm Sweat Now Available at Cary Dermatology

Lasting Solution That Can Make Embarrassing Underarm Sweat a Thing of the Past Now Available

Cary, NC, November 21, 2013 --( Cary Dermatology Center is one of the first medical practices in the United States 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 Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared the miraDry System following a robust, randomized and blinded clinical study that involved 120 patients at seven clinics across the nation 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 dermatologist’s office and takes approximately one hour. The procedure delivers precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the area under the arm where the sweat glands reside, heating and eliminating the glands. Because sweat glands do not regenerate, the results are lasting. The procedure is noninvasive 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.

Primary axillary hyperhidrosis is a medical condition in which more underarm sweat is produced than is needed to cool the body. Millions of Americans suffer from excessive underarm sweat, and often they suffer silently – ashamed, frustrated and embarrassed because excessive underarm sweat can interfere with many aspects of everyday life. For many, this condition is a constant struggle that causes anxiety at work, embarrassment in relationships and social settings, and avoidance of leisure activities.

“Excessive underarm sweat can be debilitating, and it can have a huge impact on someone’s lifestyle and quality of life,” said Catherine Hren, M.D., of Cary Dermatology Center. “I often see patients who are looking for more effective options to treat this condition. The miraDry® Procedure eliminates sweat glands in the underarm safely and noninvasively, so people can expect lasting results and stop excessive underarm sweat from interfering with their lives.”

Other treatment options are designed to temporarily disable the sweat glands, or involve surgery which contains inherent risks. Only the miraDry® Procedure provides a lasting solution with a noninvasive procedure.
