How many treatments does it take to treat underarms, palms, feet?
The typical axillary sufferer will be treated on both sides at the initial visit. We like to see the patients again in about two weeks to touch up any spots still sweating which might have been missed in the initial treatment session. Palmar patients are more difficult to treat. We will generally see significant decrease in sweating with the first injections, but generally for the very heavy sweaters, we will need to touch up persistent spots at a second visit 7 to 10 days later. We can begin treating the second hand at that point as well, and follow-up with a third visit in another 7 to 10 days. Feet are somewhat easier since the toes are smaller in surface area than the fingers and do not require as many injections.
