(HealthNewsDigest.com) - Ellman International recently acquired Sandstone Medical Technologies, which further enhances their medical device portfolio with aesthetic lasers and IPL technology. In addition to their signature Pellevé® Wrinkle Reduction System that uses radiofrequency energy for non-surgical skin tightening, Ellman now offers four more multifunctional devices that target the most common skin concerns. These include the Cortex, a laser combining CO2 and Erbium YAG, the gold standard for deep skin resurfacing and superficial rejuvenation; Tri-Lase Q-Switched Nd:YAG and Erbium YAG Laser for treating tattoos and pigmented lesions as well as superficial skin rejuvenation; Apex IPL and Erbium YAG Laser for hair reduction, acne, pigmented lesions and skin rejuvenation; and Cheveux Diode Laser for permanent hair reduction. According to New York Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Sam Rizk, “The Cortex offers me the best of both worlds; erbium and fractionated carbon dioxide CO2 platforms. It works as well as more expensive lasers for fine wrinkles and diminishing pores. It also builds collagen and creates an overall skin-smoothing result. I find it especially useful as a complement to facelifts and rhinoplasties in my practice.” Visit ellman.com.

MIRADRY® SAYS DON’T SWEAT IT
If your sweat glands are overactive, there is a new solution that can really make a difference in your life (and the life of your clothes). miraDry® is an innovative microwave technology that literally destroys your sweat glands in just two sessions. The roughly 3 million sweat glands we have in our bodies do a great job to cool us down, but sometimes they over react. miraDry® is a non-invasive solution to the common problem of excessive sweating, called hyperhidrosis. First, your underarms will be numbed with local anesthesia before the procedure because that is a sensitive area for most people. Your doctor will customize the procedure for you to locate the offending sweat glands to be knocked out. The miraDry® system heats up the deep layers of the skin where sweat glands live. While the deep layers are being heated, the system protects and cools the top layers of the skin to prevent damage. As the sweat glands are heated up, they get destroyed. Because sweat glands don’t grow back, once they are obliterated, results can be long lasting and even permanent. According to New York Dermatologist Dr. Diane Madfes, “Hyperpidrosis is a common problem among both women and men. miraDry offers an excellent solution to this embarrassing condition. In two office treatments, you can achieve a long lasting, and in many cases, permanent reduction in sweating. As a dermatologist we're fortunate to have this wonderful new treatment option available for our patients." There may be some minor swelling, soreness or redness, as well as numbness in the area for a short time. According to a clinical study, the average sweat reduction with miraDry® is 86%. Treatment costs run about $3,000 for two sessions, which is a lot less than repeating BOTOX® or Dysport™ every few months. Visit miradry.com.
