Looking into any Hyperhidrosis treatments?  I understand your frustration, there are only a few professional treatment methods available to you and they each have their pros and cons.  I’m going to go over them with you here real quick to give you an idea of what your options are.

Hyperhidrosis Treatments – #1. ETS Surgery

This is Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy surgery.  It involves literally burning or cutting your sympathetic nerves from your underarms to prevent sweating.  When these nerves are destroyed they can no longer signal your sweat glands to sweat.


  • In 98% of cases you have a drastic reduction in sweating.


  • It’s surgery, you will have 2 incision marks on your back.
  • There is a chance you will develop compensatory sweating, sweating in other areas of your body to make up for the lack of sweating under your armpits.

Hyperhidrosis Treatments – #2. Botox Injections

Botox injections can be done for your underarms, palms of your hands or even bottoms of your feet.  The Botox works by interfering with your sympathetic nerves ability to signal your sweat glands to sweat.


  • Is over 80% effective in reducing sweating
  • Can be used on your underarms/palms/feet


  • Lasts only 6-12 months
  • Costs $600-700 a pop

Hyperhidrosis Treatments – #3. Iontophoresis

Iontophoresis involves placing your hands or feet in shallow pans of water while an electrical current is passed through it.  The
current reacts with the minerals in the water to form a protective barrier around your hands or feet.  This prevents sweat from escaping.


  • It is over 80% effective in reducing sweat


  • It requires 30-45 min
  • You must do it every other day to start, then ever week.  You can possibly whittle it down to once a month.
  • It’s only for your hands or feet

Hyperhidrosis Treatments – #4. Liposuction

Yup, you can liposuck your sweatglands right out from your underarms!  They will be scraped up and out from your underarms much like how fat is sucked out.


  • It is pretty effective, 95% effective


  • May require follow up treatments
  • It’s permanent and thus can involve the same complications as with ETS surgery

It seems like all the most potent methods have a major downside to them!  Frustrating, I know…But, really, all these methods should be seen as a last resort.  Why?  Well, not many people know this, but there IS an herbal method which is just as potent, easy to implement and has 0 side effects.  Hopefully the word gets out there a bit more regarding this so that more people don’t go under the knife unnecessarily.  If you want to learn how to reduce your sweating easily and naturally, click here – Tell me the secret.
