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 approved 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 is a fast, noninvasive procedure to help Santa Rosa, CA patients free themselves from underarm sweat.

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
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 while you can relax comfortably throughout the process.
What to Expect
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. You may resume normal activities right after your treatment, but it is best to avoid strenuous activity, like exercise, for a few days.
Say Farewell to Worry
Stop worrying about underarm sweat and odor with a fast, minimally invasive miraDry treatment at Allegro MedSpa of Santa Rosa. Save your clothing from sweat stains and deodorant marks, and save your skin from the toxins and chemicals found in most antiperspirants. Regardless of how hard you work out or how nervous you are, you will still look calm, clean, and confident. Contact our Santa Rosa, CA practice today to find out more or to schedule your appointment.
