MONTREAL, Jan. 30, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Dr. Manish Khanna is the first physician in Canada to offer 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 miraDry® procedure opens the door to many people who suffer from psychological
stress and are affected socially by their excessive underarm sweating.
The procedure is supported by compelling safety and efficacy data from
multiple clinical studies with clinical data showing patients treated
with the miraDry® system experienced sustained improvement in sweat reduction.
The procedure is performed in Dr Khanna's clinic, PEAU - (downtown Montreal) and takes approximately one hour. The procedure delivers precisely
controlled 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.

underarm sweat is produced than is needed to cool the body. Millions of
Canadians 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

impact on someone's lifestyle and quality of life," says Dr Khanna. "I often see patients who are looking for more effective options to
treat this condition. 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
Other treatment options are designed to temporarily disable the sweat
glands, or involve surgery (which contains inherent risks). Only this
new procedure provides a non-invasive lasting solution.
