Many people are affected by a condition called hyperhidrosis- excessive sweating. Hyperhidrosis is uncontrollable 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 has over 5 years of research and development. miraDry has been available in the United States since January of 2012. DR. CAMERON ROKHSAR WAS THE FIRST DOCTOR IN THE NEW YORK AREA TO TREAT PATIENTS WITH miraDry. HE HAS DONE MORE miraDry PROCEDURES THAN ANY OTHER PHYSICIAN IN THE TRISTATE AREA. miraDry is the latest treatment for hyperhidrosis. 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 individuals, miraDry treatments with Dr. Rokhsar will result in significantly reduced sweating with long-lasting results. Board-certified dermatologist and laser specialist Dr. Rokhsar is excited to offer his vast expertise on miraDry to New York patients.

Why miraDry?

FDA-Approved | Instant Results | Lifetime Sweat Relief

  • 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 after the procedure

miraDry® FAQ

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 miraDry® 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 miraDry® sweat reduction 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 was the first miraDry® provider in New York and has performed more miraDry® procedures than any other physician in the New York area.

What is the miraDry® procedure like?

Dr. Rokhsar spaces out the MiraDry® treatments 3 months apart for maximum effectiveness and safety. Before your miraDry® 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 miraDry® 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 an 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.
