Dr. Stevens and Mike Kleine Plan Live miraDry “Sweat Off” October 4th, 2 PM PST
Marina Del Rey, CA – October 3, 2016 – Grant Stevens, MD, FACS, a board certified plastic surgeon and founder of Marina Plastic Surgery in Marina del Rey, and Mike Kleine CEO at Miramar Labs, creator of the FDA cleared procedure called miraDry®, will challenge each other to a live “sweat off.” It’s a case of “Dr. Stevens heal thyself” and Kleine getting a taste of his own medicine as they both undergo simultaneous miraDry procedures, Tuesday, October 4th at 2 pm PST on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/MarinaPlasticSurgeryAssociates.
The miraDry system uses thermal energy that targets and destroys the sweat and odor glands. Once those glands are destroyed, they do not grow back. It’s the first and only non-invasive treatment to permanently eliminate underarm sweat and odor glands. After numbing the underarm area, it takes about one hour to complete the procedure. It’s perfect for men and women who never want to worry about underarm sweat and odor.
“We are excited to demonstrate this procedure for the world to see via Facebook,” said Dr. Stevens, medical director. “No one wants to use antiperspirants every day for the rest of their lives. Sweating is the pits. miraDry is the solution.”
Kleine said, “We are pleased to have Dr. Stevens and his team bring to patients the only treatment for the permanent reduction of underarm sweat that is also FDA-cleared for permanent reduction of hair of all colors. Marina Plastic Surgery is an excellent miraDry partner. They have extensive experience with miraDry and have made an ever growing number of people happy to escape the burdens of perspiration, odor and sweat-stained clothing and the chemicals in deodorants and antiperspirants. I am appreciative of the opportunity to join this fortunate group of Marina Plastic Surgery patients as the Marina clinicians demonstrate live just how easy and straightforward the treatment is.
”This painless process actually kills the targeted glands in the under arm area often making patients wonder if not being able to sweat at all is bad for them. Dr. Stevens says, “We have plenty of other sweat glands in our body to thermoregulate. Only about 2% of those glands live in the troublesome armpit area.”
Before miraDry, sweating under the arms was treated with Botox, but Dr. Stevens says, “It is another way to turn off the sweat glands, but you have to do it several times a year, it hurts, it’s expensive and it doesn’t turn off the odor.” Anyone is a good candidate for miraDry. Since it is effective, affordable and painless, it is easy to see how its popularity is growing. The average treatment is about $1995 and the average patient only needs one treatment making it very affordable.
Even though miraDry is a non-surgical procedure, it is very important to seek out a qualified, experienced plastic surgeon for evaluation and consultation. Dr. Stevens has extensive experience with miraDry and finds it one of the most popular procedures for men at his Marina ManLand clinic.
