New York, NY (PRWEB) August 27, 2012
Everyone sweats, especially in summer months. But for some people regardless of the season, sweating is so disabling they may not want to leave the safety of their homes.
Many men and women sweat excessively due to “hyperhidrosis,” a condition marked by excessive underarm sweating and odor. Hyperhidrosis affects 1 in 5 people, says Dr. Cameron K. Rokhsar, M.D., an internationally known dermatologist, laser and cosmetic surgeon, and the first physician in New York and the Tri-State area to offer the Miradry treatment for excessive sweating.
“For these people, sweating can be highly problematic, leaving them self- conscious and socially embarrassed,” says Dr. Rokhsar. “Many shirts and nightgowns are thrown out by people with this condition because of sweat stains.”
Now there is a procedure that works in virtually every patient.
MiraDry is a new FDA-approved treatment that fixes both excessive sweating and the accompanying odor. Unlike typical medical options of prescription antiperspirants and Botox injections, both of which treat excessive sweating only temporarily, miraDry uses microwave technology to non-invasively mitigate over-active sweat glands for the long-term.
"Although perspiring is a natural process in the body," says Dr. Rokhsar, “people suffering from hyperhidrosis perspire at levels far beyond their body's normal requirements to maintain a healthy temperature."
“The Miradry procedure has changed the way we, as a medical community, think about the treatment of underarm sweating,” says Dr. Rokhsar. “This non-invasive approach, using selective heating of the sweat glands from the outside, reduces underarm sweating on a long-term basis, replacing botox injections and invasive surgery, and is virtually effective in every patient. The results are far superior compared to any other treatment modality.”
Dr. Cameron K. Rokhsar, M.D. is the first and most experienced physician in New York and the Tri-State area to offer the miraDry treatment. A Graduate of Harvard and New York University, and an extensively published medical author, he is a professor of Dermatology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine with offices in Manhattan and Long Island.
