85 WILMINGTON DERMATOLOGY www.wrightsvillebeachmagazine.com WBM CENTER Dr. Rosalyn George, MD, FAAD 710 Military Cutoff Road, Suite 320 Wilmington, N.C. 28403 910-256-4350 www.wilmingtondermatologycenter.com Veteran real estate agent Bobby Brandon doesn’t sweat closing the big deals anymore. “Sometimes I had to think about what color shirt to wear,” says the 58-year-old Wilmington resident who, like 1 in 5 Americans, suffered from excessive underarm sweat. Brandon has been treated with miraDry, an FDA-approved, non-invasive, procedure that eliminates the body’s sweat glands found in the underarms. “Until miraDry, treatments often used for excessive underarm sweating were special topical agents and Botox injections,” says dermatologist Rosalyn George, MD, of Wilmington Dermatology Center. “With miraDry, we finally have a permanent solution that doesn’t result in compensatory sweating in other regions or affect your overall ability to cool.” Outpatient treatments include two, one-hour procedures over six months. Patients experience an average of 82 percent reduction in underarm sweat, Dr. George says. “Patients are very pleased with the results of miraDry,” Dr. George says. “I’m now able to wear whatever kind of shirt I want,” Brandon says.
