Learn more about miraDry in Northern California and how it can help you feel your best.
Underarm sweating, while you are exercising or nervous, is normal, but excessive sweating that stains your clothes and causes an embarrassing odor is a medical condition known as hyperhidrosis.
Allegro MedSpa of Santa Rosa offers treatment for excessive underarm sweating using the miraDry system. miraDry from Miramar Labs is cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to safely target and eliminate sweat and odor glands in the underarm area. You have about two million sweat glands throughout your body so eliminating the 2% that exist in your armpits is safe and effective. You will probably enjoy an active lifestyle even more without worrying about wet marks, deodorant streaks, stickiness, and strong odors. miraDry in Northern California is a fast, non-invasive procedure to help patients free themselves from underarm sweat.
Who Should Get miradry
miraDry can help anyone who wishes to control the sweat and odor from their underarms. miraDry is a fantastic solution if you:
- Have consistent problems with excessive underarm sweat
- Frequently have stains in the underarm area of your shirts
- Want to avoid the dangerous chemicals and toxins in deodorant
- Are embarrassed by the odor caused by your armpits
- Want to feel cleaner and fresher
How it works
Getting miraDry in Northern California is a fast, non-invasive procedure.
To initiate your treatment, the area is marked, cleaned, and then numbed with a topical anesthetic to make you comfortable during your procedure. Next, the miraDry device will be passed over the skin using light suction to bring the sweat glands closer to the surface of the skin. The miraWave heated energy works on the sweat and odor glands while the surface of your skin is kept cool by the device. Most treatments take approximately one hour.
What to Expect
Here’s what to expect when getting miraDry in Northern California.
You may resume normal activities right after your treatment, but it is best to avoid strenuous activity, like exercise, for a few days.
After your treatment, your underarms may have temporary numbness, tingling, swelling, or soreness for a couple of days, but you will have an immediate reduction in underarm sweat.
Sweat glands do not come back once they are destroyed so your results will be long-term.
To receive the best results possible, two treatments performed approximately 2 – 3 months apart are recommended.
From Our Clients
“I finally got miradry after years of wanting to get it. My underarm sweat was awful to the point of quickly destroying shirts after just a few uses, and not to mention the associated odor. Thankfully, Allegro made scheduling easy, and I completed all my paperwork quickly online (via a secure text link to my phone) prior my Saturday morning appointment. I felt safe throughout my experience from the time I entered the door until I left. Kelsey, one of Allegro’s Physician Assistants, made me feel comfortable while wearing her n95 mask throughout, along with other precautions. The procedure started by placing markings on my underarms, followed by application of local anesthetic, which was surprisingly painless. The procedure then followed the marked pattern on your underarm and takes about 2 hours in total to complete. Most people only require one treatment as I did. The post-procedure soreness was minimal and lasted for about 1-2 days (I iced most of the following day as Kelsey recommended). The results even a week later were incredible. I spent the following weekend moving and had zero underarm sweat, or odor, and I didn’t even apply antiperspirant! I recommend this procedure to anyone interested in saving their clothing, or self conscious about underarm sweat, as I had been for many years.”

Many patients will see results with only one treatment. Occasionally a second treatment will enhance the results of the first.
How long are treatments?
MiraDry treatments are usually completed in an hour or less.
