Dr. Rokhsar is proud to be a PLATINUM LEVEL miraDry®️️ PROVIDER
Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating and affects around 3% of the U.S. population1. It is an uncontrollable condition and can cause patients to experience embarrassment in social and professional situations. Traditionally, prescription antiperspirants, Botox, and surgery have been the only treatments available.
miraDry is backed by over 5 years of research and development and the procedure has been available in the United States since January 2012. This technology uses precise microwave electromagnetic energy to destroy sweat glands while leaving surrounding tissues unharmed, resulting in effective, long-lasting treatment with minimal downtime.
For many New York and Long Island patients, miraDry® treatments with Dr. Rokhsar will result in significantly reduced sweating with long-lasting results. Board-certified dermatologist and laser specialist Dr. Rokhsar are excited to offer his vast expertise on miraDry® to New York patients.
miraDry® is a simple treatment that can be completed in as little as one hour.
Local anesthesia is administered to assure maximum comfort during the treatment.
A temporary tattoo is used to mark skin in preparation for treatment.
The area is treated with miraDry, eliminating sweat and odor glands in the underarm.

“Dr. Rokhsar is clearly an expert in his field.

I have been coming to Dr. Rokhsar for several years, and highly recommend him! His staff is also extremely kind, professional, and knowledgeable.”
In just a few, quick and safe treatment sessions, this technology will put an end to excessive sweating!
As the most innovative hyperhidrosis treatment up to date, it hass an array of features over conventional solutions. Some of these advantages include:
Before the treatment, Dr. Rokhsar examines every patient to ensure that he or she is a good candidate for miraDry® in Long Island. Once you have the green light, the treatment can then be performed.
When it comes to results, the most important thing is setting the right expectations for your treatment.
Dr. Rokhsar is the first miraDry provider in New York with the greatest experience in the tri-state area.
miraDry® has FDA approval and it is regarded as a safe, non-invasive treatment. However, there are potential risks and temporary side-effects you should keep in mind before the procedure. These include a tingling sensation, temporary numbness, and other rare side-effects like nerve damage.
Dr. Rokhsar is an internationally renowned cosmetic laser surgeon who has exceedingly advanced knowledge and experience working with miraDry. Putting an end to hyperhidrosis takes a laser expert with significant training, expert patient care, and impressive results like Dr. Rokhsar.
Although this procedure is FDA-approved for the treatment of the underarms, Dr. Rokhsar has treated many other areas off label, including the back, love handles, the groin, and inner thigh.

It is important to be able to pick the right energy settings for the right person. Due to Dr. Rokhsar’s experience, he can do that.
Also, he uses a numbing technique with tumescent fluid that makes the procedure much safer as the fluid cushions the nerves in the targeted areas.
Less-experienced doctors have a high incidence of rare side-effects including nerve damage. They may use inappropriate energy settings, and in these cases, a low setting causes the procedure to be ineffective and a higher setting causes unwarranted side-effects.
Dr. Rokhsar acquired the first miraDry® device in the tristate area back in 2012. Additionally, because he is a pioneer in the use of this device, he also treats off-label areas effectively. These include the back, inner thighs, and groin, as well as other areas that most doctors don’t have the expertise to treat.
Moreover, Dr. Rokhsar has conducted workshops and hosted webinars to help fellow physicians perfect their technique.
Most patients get 80 to 90 % improvement after 2 sessions, rarely patients may require a 3rd session. You need to give your body three months between treatments. While it may sound like a lot of time, patients experience significant improvement in sweating after the first treatment. In some cases, patients only need two or three treatments until they achieve their goals, making the wait worthwhile.
Thanks to his unique approach, Dr. Rokhsar’s patients can experience as much as 80% reduction in sweating after the first two sessions. These results are long-lasting as well as the sweat glands don’t usually grow back after the procedure.
Even though some patients report discomfort when having the procedure with other physicians, Dr. Rokhsar has developed a unique numbing technique that ensures the treatment is 100% pain-free. Also, he uses Pronox for anxiety and pain relief, which sets him apart from most practitioners in the area.
Men and women who experience excessive sweating and are tired of staining and ruining clothes are suitable to undergo treatments. The innovative technique used in both treatments helps individuals who suffer from underarm hyperhidrosis and eliminates the need to constantly reapply deodorant. It is the only procedure that heats and destroys sweat glands for permanent odor and sweat relief.
Many patients worry about the destruction of sweat glands interfering with normal perspiration. However, the body is home to nearly 2 million sweat glands. Dr. Rokhsar’s miraDry® treatment targets a mere 2% of those glands while offering the many benefits of dry, odorless underarms.
Yes. The procedure has been safely performed on over 55,000 patients. Aside from slight side-effects as the body naturally responds to the procedure, FDA-approved miraDry® is safe and comfortable.
Dr. Rokhsar spaces out treatments three months apart for maximum effectiveness and safety. Before your session, a numbing cream is applied to the underarm. Then, during the treatment, a hand-held device transmits precise waves of electromagnetic energy to the target area. The one-hour long treatments are gentle, and generally well tolerated by our patients.
Since it is a zero-downtime procedure, patients can return to work or regularly scheduled activities upon leaving our NYC office. Any discomfort experienced, such as mild swelling or irritation can be treated with over-the-counter pain medication or ice packs. Since the apocrine glands responsible for sweat production are directly targeted, decreased sweating and reduced odor will be noticed immediately after your miraDry® treatment session.
While most patients experience no pain, there are potential risks involved with any medical procedure. In some instances, miraDry® is accompanied by slight swelling and soreness, which disappears a few weeks after treatment. Having your procedure done by a professional laser expert, like Dr. Rokhsar ensures the best results possible.
