Everyone sweats. Unfortunately, sweat can be extremely frustrating, causing unexpected underarm wetness, odor, and embarrassment. You can now stay fresh and dry all day long with help from Allegro MedSpa and miraDry®. This innovative new procedure helps patients in Sonoma and Marin County feel more confident in their clothing, without any sign of the wet marks that come with warmth, nervousness, or excitement.
- Eliminate wet marks in clothing

The innovative miraDry® treatment uses concentrated energy waves, meticulously applied to the target area using a small, handheld applicator. This light energy will travel deep below the skin’s surface, gently heating, shrinking, and destroying overactive sweat glands. The surrounding healthy tissues remain unaffected during treatment.
Are you a good candidate for miraDry®?
The best candidate for miraDry® will be in generally good health, wanting to put an end to underarm wetness and odor. Potential patients must understand the miraDry® treatment process and have realistic expectations for the results. The treatment is not for everyone, however. Those with heart or liver disease, certain medical conditions, or a skin color type 5/6 may not make a good candidate for miraDry®.
The best way to determine if miraDry® could be your solution for underarm wetness is through an in-person consultation at Allegro MedSpa. During this appointment, Dr. Canales and Dr. Furnas will closely review your medical history and symptoms. They will listen to your desires and long-term goals. Finally, the doctors will explain all of your options in detail, including miraDry®. If miraDry® is right for your situation, the surgeons will create a personalized, sweat reduction treatment plan.
The miraDry® Treatment from Allegro MedSpa:
Depending on the individual, the miraDry® procedure will generally take less than an hour. Each session is performed in one of the private Allegro MedSpa treatment rooms. While the miraDry® procedure is not considered painful, a topical or local anesthetic will be applied before the treatment, ensuring complete patient comfort.
As the miraDry® handpiece is activated, it will gently suction the skin, pulling the sweat glands closer to the surface. The contoured applicator is then moved over the treatment area, emitting quick, short pulses of concentrated miraWave™ energy. These laser light waves travel several millimeters below the skin’s surface, damaging sweat glands with the concentrated warmth. The unique miraDry® applicator then cools the skin after each short pulse of laser energy, for ideal comfort. As soon as the miraDry® session is complete, patients are free to return to their routine activities.
What to Expect After Your miraDry® Treatment:
There is little to no downtime needed after a MiraDry® session, meaning most patients are back to work the same afternoon. Although the armpit may be tender for the first few days, this is manageable with over-the-counter pain medications and intermittent ice packs to help reduce the localized swelling. In 24 to 28 hours, the treatment area will be fully healed.
Benefits of miraDry® can be seen right away. Patients will note up to an 80% reduction in underarm sweat after only one session. Best of all, once the sweat glands are gone, they will not return. After only one miraDry® treatment, you will no longer be bothered with excessive sweat, embarrassing underarm moisture, sticky armpits, sweat stains on clothing, and foul odors. As a bonus, some patients will note that their miraDry® treatment permanently reduces the amount of armpit hair.
MiraDry® provides a nonsurgical, cutting-edge solution for those men and women frustrated with excessive sweating and persistent underarm odor known as hyperhidrosis. The simple, pain-free treatment tackles embarrassing sweat and severe underarm wetness. No other treatment on the market can provide the success of noninvasive miraDry®.
Safety and Side-Effects of miraDry®:
Cleared by the FDA, miraDry® is considered a safe option for treating underarm wetness and hyperhidrosis. As approximately 5% of the body’s two million sweat glands are rendered ineffective during a miraDry® session, the body can still safely cool itself down using the normal perspiration process. Redness, tenderness, and mild swelling are common side-effects of treatment, although these generally resolve quickly. As miraDry® does not require any incisions or sutures, more serious complications are extremely rare.

What is miraDry®?
MiraDry® is a one-of-a-kind treatment, using innovative laser technology, to safely destroy targeted sweat glands. Short pulses of concentrated light energy, known as miraWave™, will travel deep into the targeted tissues, permanently damaging sweat glands. Patients will see an immediate reduction in axillary sweat and odor.
Where will my miraDry® treatment be performed?
At Allegro Day Spa, each miraDry® treatment is performed by a trained aesthetic professional in one of our comfortable and private treatment rooms. For patient convenience, Allegro MedSpa has two locations, in Santa Rosa and Novato.
Is miraDry® considered painful?
The miraDry® treatment is well-tolerated by most patients. However, while not painful, the treatment may pinch or sting with each pulse of the laser. For complete patient comfort, Dr. Furnas and Dr. Canales will first apply a topical or local anesthetic, making the miraDry® treatment pain-free.
When can I return to work after a miraDry® treatment?
Your miraDry® treatment will be performed on an outpatient basis, taking about an hour. Most patients are able to return to work the same day. While the area under your arm may be slightly bruised and tender for several days, post-treatment discomfort is mild. Strenuous exercise can comfortably be resumed in three to five days.
How long can I expect the results from miraDry® last?
Most patients will see an immediate improvement with miraDry®. The sweat glands damaged during the treatment process will not come back, therefore you can expect the benefits of one miraDry® session to last for years to come.
