2-Year Study Results Point to Permanence
miraDry Long-term Results Point to Permanent Sweat Reduction
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Miramar Labs®, Inc., a leading medical device manufacturer and maker of the miraDry® System, today announced the results of recently published 2-year data showing that miraDry efficacy observed at 30 days remains stable through 2 years.
The miraDry System delivers energy non-invasively to the area under the arm where sweat glands reside, creating localized heat to destroy and eliminate those glands. Since sweat glands do not regenerate, these results are expected to be permanent.
The study published in the journal Dermatologic Surgery reported1:
- Greater than 90% efficacy
- 70% reduction in the number of patients reporting problematic odor
- Greater than 90% of patients had a dramatic improvement in quality of life based on DLQI score reduction
- High patient satisfaction
Since its launch, the miraDry system has been used in over 30,000 treatments worldwide and currently boasts a 90% patient satisfaction rating in commercial use, among the highest of all aesthetic procedures.
“Since sweat and odor glands do not regenerate, these results are expected to be permanent,” commented Michael Kleine, Miramar Labs President and CEO. “This is a tremendous breakthrough, not only for excessive sweaters, but for anyone who manages nuisance sweat and odor. Everyone sweats, but now, with miraDry, patients can choose not to.”
