Now there’s a lasting solution that can make embarrassing underarm sweat a thing of the past.

Dr. Lee Laris is one of the first physicians in the U.S. and the first in Phoenix 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 U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) cleared the miraDry system following a robust, randomized, blinded clinical study that involved 120 patients at seven clinics across the U.S. 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 an in-office procedure that takes approximately one hour. The miraDry procedure delivers precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the area under the arm where the sweat glands reside, and heats and eliminates the sweat glands. Since sweat glands do not regenerate, results are lasting. The procedure is non-invasive 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 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; from the types of clothing they can wear to the activities they choose to participate in,” said Dr. Lee Laris, Medical Director and Chief Cosmetic Surgeon of Phoenix Skin Dermatology. “Many of our patients have explored treatment options such as topical medications, oral medications and even injected botox; all of which have to be used daily with limited effectiveness or are invasive and not longlasting. The miraDry procedure eliminates sweat glands in the underarm safely and non-invasively, so people can expect lasting results and stop excessive underarm sweat from interfering with their lives.”

Patients can visit or call 602.222.9111 to schedule a complimentary consultation or to learn more about the procedure.
