SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 07, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Miramar Labs, Inc., (OTCQB:MRLB), a global aesthetic company, announced today that it has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance to market for reduction of odor when patients are treated with the miraDry system. miraDry is now the first and only FDA cleared device for the non-invasive treatment of odor. Mike Kleine, Chief Executive Officer of Miramar, said, "FDA clearance for odor reduction is a significant milestone in our product development strategy that further enhances the value proposition of the miraDry system for aesthetic practices. We believe it will allow our customers to expand the appeal of the miraDry procedure with the same easy-to-use, safe and effective system that treats underarm sweat and hair. We look forward to introducing this new labeling into the market and continuing to advance our other new product programs, including expanding the miraDry technology for use in hand sweat." "miraDry is proven to reduce underarm sweat by delivering localized heat to the area where the eccrine sweat glands reside, and in many patients we have observed that the device also thermally impacts and eliminates the apocrine glands that are responsible for bad body odor," said E. Victor Ross, MD, director of the Laser and Cosmetic Dermatology Center at Scripps Clinic in San Diego, Calif. "It is important to our patients that we not only treat their sweat, but that we also significantly decrease the odor-causing secretions that are often more noticeable and disturbing."
