Is Non-Surgical hyperhidrosis treatment right for me?

If your aim is to reduce the embarrassment and inconvenience caused by overactive sweat glands but doesn’t want an invasive surgical operation such as ETS (Endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy) or the less invasive, but effective liposuction, then either Iontophoresis or Botox® are safe and convenient options.

Iontophoresis is suitable if your hands and feet are affected by excessive sweating. It is a painless non-invasive treatment which is quick and easily performed in the outpatient setting. You need a series of treatments to start off with, an example would be 7 sessions in 22 days, after which you go for maintenance treatments once every 3 weeks or as necessary.

This procedure requires no downtime or recovery time and you can comfortably return to work after the treatment.

Botox injections are very effective for axillary hyperhidrosis and the effects usually last for up to 12 months. Thus, you should choose Botox if you want a once-off treatment for excessive sweating that is long lasting. The procedure is comfortable and you just feel little skin pricks with each injection and just like Iontophoresis, you will resume your normal activities immediately after the procedure.

Botox and Iontophoresis treatments are suitable for people who want treatment for excessive sweating with minimal side effects. There are no serious side effects associated with these techniques and this makes Botox and Iontophoresis the best option for people who wish to avoid surgery.
