Excessive sweating can’t be fixed invasively with focused ultrasound energy (without injuring the skin). This method leads to a destruction of the sweat glands which leads to lasting success. Mostly only one treatment is required. With heavy sweating a second treatment 30 days after the initial treatment may be necessary. The treatment success will show after about 2 weeks.

Conservative

A blockage of the nerve impulses at the sweat glands is caused by fine injections of botulinum toxin A, a bacterial protein. You can follow your personal and professional activities right after the treatment.
