NEW YORK, Jan. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Board certified plastic surgeon Bryan G. Forley, MD, FACS, is the first plastic surgeon in New York to offer miraDry®, the innovative microwave technology that destroys underarm sweat glands in just two in-office sessions.

miraDry® is a non-invasive solution to the all too common problem of excessive sweating, called hyperhidrosis. 1 in 5 adults produce excessive amounts of perspiration, beyond what is physically required by the body, leading to embarrassing wetness that can have a negative affect at work and in social settings. Many other men and women are sweat bothered, and complain about underarm perspiration ruining their clothes and making them self-conscious about raising their arms. 

Here's how it works. First, Dr. Forley will use a local anesthetic to numb your underarm area. The procedure will then be customized to target the precise sweat glands that need to be knocked out. The miraDry® system heats up the deep layers of the skin where sweat glands live while protecting and cooling the top layers to prevent any damage to the skin. The sweat glands are destroyed and because sweat glands do not grow back once they are eliminated, results are long lasting.

According to New York Plastic Surgeon Bryan G. Forley, MD, "miraDry® is an innovative technology that addresses an unmet need of great concern to both male and female patients. Excessive sweat can be the cause of great social anxiety and embarrassment, and now it can be treated safely and effectively in two sessions. The success of this treatment modality represents a quantum leap over previous methods, including chemical antiperspirants, invasive surgery, and BOTOX® injections."

Dr. Forley typically recommends two sessions spaced about three months apart for best results, and the treatment takes only about an hour for both underarms. In some cases, an additional treatment may be needed. The results are evident immediately. There may be some minimal downtime with mild, localized discomfort and swelling. Exercise can usually be resumed after a few days.
