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.
Primary axillary hyperhidrosis is a medical condition in which more 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 leisure activities.
"Excessive underarm sweat can be debilitating and it can have a huge 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 lives."
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.
