Austin, TX (PRWEB) January 31, 2012
Westlake Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery, a leading provider of medical dermatology, cosmetic procedures and plastic surgery in Central Texas, announced today it is now offering the miraDry® procedure for the treatment of hyperhidrosis - commonly known as excessive underarm sweating. 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 sweating (approximately one in five people), and many suffer silently—ashamed, frustrated and embarrassed because excessive underarm sweat can interfere with many aspects of everyday life. And it’s not only people with hyperhidrosis who can benefit from the miraDry procedure. Some people suffer from nervous perspiration, and the blazing-hot summers in Central Texas also cause most people to sweat quite a bit, which can ruin clothes, lead to unpleasant odors, and create uncomfortable situations.
The miraDry System delivers energy non-invasively to the area under the arm where the sweat glands reside, which creates localized heat to destroy and eliminate the glands. Since sweat glands do not regenerate, results are lasting.
“Until now, there hasn’t been a permanent medical solution for the silent sufferers of excessive underarm sweat,” said Dr. Gregory Nikolaidis, president of Westlake Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery. “miraDry provides a safe and non-invasive treatment option for people to take back control of their lives without letting sweat interfere with their daily activities.”
Each miraDry procedure takes approximately one hour and the full treatment plan requires two procedures to maximize results. The procedure is safe and the effect can be experienced almost immediately. Since the procedure is non-invasive, there is little to no downtime, so patients can go about their normal routines after treatment. The lasting result of miraDry is a significant departure from previously available alternatives which require toxin injections or surgical incisions.
