MiraDry® Gilbert | Phoenix | Chandler | Mesa
Permanent, Immediate, Non-surgical
Do you suffer from excessive sweating? Tired of sifting through different antiperspirants only to come up empty? Do you find you’re ruining one shirt after another with all your sweating?
If you have hyperhidrosis – sweating that just won’t stop – this revolutionary procedure may be just what you’ve been waiting for. At the Laser Spa at Sonoma, we offer MiraDry®, a simple device that uses controlled energy to permanently alter sweat glands, shutting them down forever.
Permanently reduce underarm sweat and odor
Dr. Spanganberg offers the life-changing treatment of MiraDry®, a procedure that ends the awkward and distressing predicament of over-sweating permanently. In just one hour, the MiraDry® System targets the sweat glands in your underarm with thermal energy and eliminates them for good. It’s that easy.
Hyperhidrosis – What is it?
Living with extremely sweaty underarms is not only annoying, but also isolating as you attempt to hide the embarrassing situation in your daily interactions. Did you know that there are almost 367 million other people who suffer from this uncontrollable condition – one that can affect the forehead, palms, and feet as well? You’ve probably noticed over-sweating in one of those other locations too. We know how challenging it can be to lead a normal life, carry out everyday activities, and perform professionally with wet hands, a dripping forehead, and big spots under your arms.
Hyperhidrosis – What causes it?
Secondary generalized hyperhidrosis is typically caused by a medical condition or a medication, so we address it by treating that underlying cause. Primary focal hyperhidrosis, however, does not have a contributing factor so must be treated directly. If you suspect you have primary focal hyperhidrosis, you most likely have experienced two or more of the following:
- The onset of this condition occurred before you were 25.
- You have family members who also endure this condition.
- You average a minimum of one sweaty episode per week.
- The level of your sweatiness interferes with your everyday activities.
- The excessive sweating doesn’t occur while you sleep.
MiraDry® – The Perma-Fix
If you’ve tried prescription-grade antiperspirants and even Botox to block the chemical that activates your sweat glands, you have found only temporary relief. However, MiraDry®, approved by the FDA, has the capacity to successfully end sweating once and for all.
The Process – How It Works
Completely pain-free, MiraDry® is administered by Dr. Peter Spanganberg in the comfort of our state-of-the-art spa facility. From beginning to end, you can expect treatment time to be as little as an hour. We encourage our patients to relax and listen to music during the procedure.
How does it work?
Downtime and Recovery
One of the benefits of MiraDry® (in addition to instant results) is the lack of extensive healing and downtime required. If you thought you were going to have to take a week off work, think again. You may be able to return to work immediately. You might experience mild swelling, redness, and soreness, but ice packs and over-the-counter pain medication will help you manage any discomfort and promote healing.
It is normal to experience immediately dry underarms after treatment, followed by minimal sweating after a few weeks. Studies show MiraDry® typically destroys around 80 percent of the underarm sweat glands, and most of our patients achieve full results after one treatment. Occasionally, we’ll recommend patients undergo a second treatment several months after the first. Dr. Spanganberg evaluates each case individually and advises accordingly.
At the Laser Spa at Sonoma, we are thrilled to provide our patients a safe and promising medical solution to the debilitating effects of hyperhidrosis. Don’t wait. Make the choice to improve your lifestyle, both psychologically and socially, today.

How miraDry® Works
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is MiraDry® right for me?
If you have experienced the adverse effects of excessive sweating, MiraDry® may be a good option for you. A procedure that works on men and women of all skin types and tones, MiraDry® is approved for patients age 18 and over. At your consultation, Dr. Spanganberg will complete a full evaluation of your case, review your medical history, and help you decide if MiraDry® would be a good fit for you.
Is it harmful to eliminate sweat glands?
Good question! Interestingly, underarm sweat glands do not affect your body’s ability to regulate temperature. In fact, only about two percent of your body’s four million sweat glands are in your arm pits. Patients with hyperhidrosis often experience excessive sweating on their foreheads, hands, and feet, and MiraDry® is only effective in treating underarms. But eliminating the abundance of underarm sweating you endure will have a significant impact on your body’s over all sweat production.
How long is the treatment session?
The actual time that Dr. Spanganberg will spend using the MiraDry® device on your underarms is about 10 minutes per side, but the entire treatment from start to finish should take about an hour total, and since local anesthesia is all that is needed, you’ll be able to return to your normal daily activities right away.
Is it painful?
Not at all. Dr. Spanganberg administers a local anesthetic prior to moving the device over the specified areas.
Are there any side effects to worry about?
It is not uncommon for our patients to experience redness, swelling and soreness of the armpits, but most find ice packs and over-the-counter pain medication do the trick of reducing any discomfort.
When can I return to work?
If your job involves any sort of strenuous activity, we recommend you take a couple of days off to allow your body time to heal, but the vast majority of our patients return to work immediately
How soon will I see results?
Results are instant, for the most part, and you might even be 100 percent dry for the first few weeks. As the swelling subsides, some sweat may return. Our patients usually see satisfactory results after just one treatment.
How long will the results last?
Forever. MiraDry® completely destroys sweat glands, so the results are permanent. With the exception of surgery, no other treatment is as effective as MiraDry®.
How much does a MiraDry® treatment cost?
Since each case is unique, the cost of MiraDry® varies. The best way to get an accurate estimate of what your cost will be is by calling us to schedule a consultation. We look forward to meeting with you and answering all your questions.
