Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) August 26, 2013
Olansky Dermatology announces the installation of the latest technology for eliminating sweat glands, as a treatment for hyperhidrosis. "For the first time, there is a safe, effective and lasting treatment for excessive underarm sweat," says Dr. Jodi Ganz, managing partner at Olansky Dermatology Associates.
The FDA-approved miraDry technology is non-invasive, utilizes electromagnetic energy to eliminate the sweat glands, and is performed in the office by a dermatologist under a local anesthetic. The 90-minute process requires two treatments, three months apart.
Before miraDry, there were three treatment options: topical ointments, Botox injections offering temporary relief, and invasive surgery.
With miraDry treatment, Dr. Ganz says the patient can usually go back to work the same day, and should refrain from exercise for only a few days. Some swelling or soreness is to be expected for a few weeks, and is easily treated with mild pain relievers and ice packs.
Over 7,000 patients in North America and Asia have utilized miraDry. Recent statistics indicate sweat reduction averages of 82%. More than 90% of patients are satisfied with the outcome. Those who suffer with hyperhidrosis know sweating can occur even when temperatures are cool and when they are physically at rest. It is the unexpectedness and the profuseness of the sweating that leads individuals to seek a long-term solution. Brandon Odom, a hyperhidrosis sufferer who recently began the miraDry treatment at Olansky Dermatology, is pleased with the result. Odom shared, “It didn’t matter if it was summer or winter, I would still have embarrassing sweat stains under my arms. I had tried every form of antiperspirant I could find and nothing was working. Since the miraDry procedure, I have not had to worry about it.”
Olansky Dermatology Associates is the only dermatology practice in Buckhead, the uptown Atlanta neighborhood, with the technology and credentials necessary to perform this treatment. Visit http://www.olanskydermatology.com for more details.
