How Mara works.
The Mara system uses a unique energy source: water vapor. By filling the uterine cavity with naturally expansive water vapor, Mara gently treats more women with varying uterine anatomies*, does not require general anesthesia, and most importantly, safely and effectively reduces heavy menstrual bleeding.1
*With a broad range of anatomical conditions: uterine cavity lengths greater than 10 cm (up to 12 cm), cavities with certain type of myomas up to 4 cm, and in the presence of Essure®
2-minute active treatment time*
*As part of a 4-minute procedure. Total time in office may vary and will include preparation and post-procedure observation.
