Sweating is a physiological (normal) function regulated by your nervous system. Most of us sweat normally to maintain our body temperature in warm/hot conditions, but sometimes it can become disordered and troublesome even in the absence of these factors.

Prior to performing treatment, the area is covered with iodine and a cornstarch powder which shows up the exact area where the excess sweat glands are located. This area is then marked and cleaned and a topical numbing cream is applied. The use of anaesthetic cream results in a virtually painless procedure.
The treatment involves a series of injections using small amounts of muscle relaxant to the affected site. The entire procedure takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes depending on the area being treated. Less time is usually required for palms.
Depending on the individual response to the injections, the treatment may last anywhere between 6 to 12 months.
You will start to notice a reduction in sweating within two weeks of treatment with the full results effective about 4 weeks post-treatment.
