White Paper from Miramar Labs, Inc

Hyperhidrosis is a common condition estimated to affect up to 3% of all Americans. Excessive sweating may be present in the underarms, as well as in the palms of the hands and soles of the feet.

There tends to be a stigma associated with hyperhidrosis. Patients may be reluctant to discuss the problem, especially if they don’t know that treatment options exist.Recently a technology based on focused heating of sweat gland tissue using microwave energy has been developed and refined for clinical use. Because this microwave-based technology is performed as an outpatient procedure in the physician's office, it is easily accessible for patients and is a non-invasive procedure because it does not involve surgical incisions or cuts. This whitepaper examines how this microwave-based technology will correct excessive perspiration and assist in increasing ROI by having this non-invasive procedure available, allowing them to stop sweating the small stuff.
