Miramar Labs is a global medical device company dedicated to bringing the next generation energy modality to the field of dermatology. Supported by rigorous clinical research, Miramar Labs is focused on addressing aesthetic medical conditions for which there are significant unmet clinical needs. The company’s first priority is advancing aesthetic treatments using its proprietary miraWave™ technology platform. miraWave harnesses the unique benefits of microwave energy to treat dermatologic conditions such as axillary sweat and hair of all colors.
The company’s first commercial product, the miraDry® system and treatment, utilizes precisely controlled microwave energy to provide a non-invasive treatment for permanent sweat reduction for patients of all skin types. Since receiving CE Mark approval in December 2013 following US FDA clearance in January 2011, miraDry has shown quick adoption with distribution in major markets such as the US, Europe, Asia and Latin America. Over 70% of the general population is interested in a long-lasting solution for their underarm sweat.
It was during initial clinical studies with miraDry, that company representatives noticed a significant reduction in underarm hair of all colors following a treatment. This indication was then pursued and in July 2015, Miramar Labs announced its miraDry System received clearance from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of unwanted underarm hair and permanent reduction of underarm hair of all colors. With this regulatory milestone, the company introduced miraSmooth™ as the only procedure FDA cleared to provide the dual benefit of permanent underarm hair reduction and permanent underarm sweat reduction sweat in one treatment.
With approved indications for the treatment of underarm sweat and hair of all colors, Miramar Labs and the miraDry system is creating entirely new markets for aesthetic treatments and filling the unmet needs of patients worldwide.
