“Addressing some of the frequently asked questions we get about MiraDry, the new microwave system that is addressing permanently reducing underarm sweating and eliminating the odor producing glands under the arms and one of those questions relates to just what I said “What are the Results that one can expect? and the data from the research shows that there’s an 82% reduction overall in sweating and odor which difficult to measure the odor but sweating in particular which is a enough to make people feel nearly, completely dry in one single treatment, it’s obviously an option to have a second treatment but the vast majority, the overwhelming majority patients in the studies felt comfortable and satisfied with a single treatment that is done in the office and so in the expectations of result being met people getting a treatment feeling comfortable and certainly a supplemental treatment can be done. Now, that ties into a second questions of course that is “How much it cost? and well obviously, there’s some regional variation in cost. MiraDry cost really are in a fairly tight range somewhere between say $1900 and $2500 like again depending on the area that you’re living in. In New York, it might be as much as 3,000, in the San Francisco Bay area, the California region in general are the cost vary again is averaging probably somewhere between $2300 and $2500 but that depends on the experience and quality of the provider, the value that you get in it in terms of outcomes is greatly exceeded just in the cost of deodorant alone. So, on a cost basis this really is one of the most cost effective procedures people can even measure the benefits in terms of the loss and the reduction and purchasing any kind of antiperspirant or deodorant sprays except those basically go away with people who are getting MiraDry treatments. So, the cost of MiraDry in general somewhere between $1900 and $2500 average they can be highest on that, certainly low based on experience and the quality of the providers and their outcome.”
