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.

 

What is miraDry?

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.

Why miraDry?

miraDry® is an FDA-approved treatment for excessive sweating2. This effective treatment provides instant results that last a lifetime.

  • Current treatments such as Botox and prescription antiperspirants are temporary and work only by disabling the sweat glands. miraDry® is longer lasting because it destroys sweat glands.
  • Unlike surgery, miraDry® is both non-invasive and has little to no downtime. Many patients return to work right after the procedure.

The Benefits of miraDry® Treatments in NYC

  • The significant decrease of underarm sweat and odor
  • Safe and approved by the FDA3
  • Proven to offer 80% sweat reduction4 after 1 session
  • Patients report the miraDry® experience is comfortable
  • Desired results can be achieved after only 2 treatments
  • No more sweat marks, deodorant stains, or unpleasant odors as results are typically permanent
  • Immediately noticeable results4

What to Expect with a Treatment

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.

  • NYC laser specialist Dr. Rokhsar begins by injecting a local anesthetic to the area to be treated. This helps increase patient comfort.
  • Next, the doctor performs the treatment using the device. He will choose settings specific to your skin anatomy. This procedure takes about an hour for both underarms.
  • Zero downtime sweat reduction treatment

When Will I Notice Results?

When it comes to results, the most important thing is setting the right expectations for your treatment.

  • As with any procedure, results depend greatly on the patient being treated. In clinical trials, virtually all patients experienced reduced sweating.
  • You will notice results immediately after the first treatment with increased results after the second treatment.
  • In clinical trials3, dramatic results were still apparent 12 months after treatment, and scientific research shows that sweat glands do not regenerate after treatment.

miraDry® FAQ

What is special about Dr. Rokhsar’s technique? Any common issues that arise when a less-experienced doctor applies miraDry?

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.

What makes Dr. Rokhsar different from other providers?

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.

How long do patients need to wait between treatments?

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.

How effective is miraDry® to stop hyperhidrosis?

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.

Is it painful?

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.

Am I a candidate for miraDry®?

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.

Doesn’t my body need sweat glands?

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.

Is miraDry® safe?

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.

What is the procedure like?

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.

What is recovery after miraDry® like?

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.

How safe is miraDry®?

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.
