Until recently, there has been little to do about excessive sweating (a condition known formally as hyperhydrosis). Patients who experienced embarrassing odors and wetness often exhausted a wide variety of over-the-counter options, ultimately ending up at my office frustrated and looking for hope.
Unfortunately, the medical field had made minimal contributions to the issue, offering temporary and perhaps uncomfortable Botox treatments, or expensive, invasive surgical alternatives. While using Botox to control sweating is effective and exciting, the process requires a potentially time consuming pre-authorization process on behalf of both the patient and the clinician in order to receive any insurance reimbursement. Similarly, surgery carries the risk of infection and anesthetic, as well as significant cost and down-time.
This is why I am so excited to announce the availability of Miradry to my patients. The drive behind my practice has always been to offer leading edge technologies that are effective, efficient, safe, and that save my patients their valuable time and money. Having thoroughly reviewed the system, safety studies, clinical efficacy trials, and science, I am confident to say that Miradry is just that.
With no incisions, medications, down-time, needles, or pain, the system delivers precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the sweat glands, rendering them ineffective in just 40-60 minutes. At the same time, the hydro-ceramic cooling system spares the surrounding dermis. What’s more, patients notice results immediately after the procedure and see even more dramatic improvement after a second treatment. In the time of a lunch break, you can feel comfortable wearing any clothing, in any temperature, in any situation.
If you would like to learn more about the specifics of Miradry, including the procedure, technology, and the results, please see my informational section here.
As always, I’d love to assist you in finding a treatment plan that works best for you. With spring and summer approaching, now is the perfect time to make excessive sweating one less issue to worry about. Please call (212) 285-1110 to schedule an appointment.
