||Invasive - Has a reported 99% success rate to stop palm sweating.
||Surgery almost always results in compensatory sweating, causing possible
severe sweating in other parts of the body (back,
thighs, head, feet etc), among other potential side-effects.
||Invasive injections. High levels of dryness usually achieved. Effects can
last from 4 to 12 months.
||Palm injections can be very painful. There is a possibility of nerve
poison, and sweating will return eventually. It is also very expensive and the body can
build up immunity to its effects.

||No sideeffects, no effects
||Non-invasive, stong antiperspirant, Effects can last for up to two weeks,
good results for armpit sweating.
||Aluminium ingredients (some say it triggers Alzheimer). Ingredients can
cause skin irritation or inflammation. It does not work for everyone. Works very well for
armpit sweating (around 80% success rate) and is mostly ineffective for palm and plant
sweating (the feet and hands cause of the thick skin).
||Only for underarm usage
||Does not stop the sweat, it is only a sweat-collector
||in some cases little side effects like "itchy red treatment
areas" for some minutes (high success rate)
Unfortunately there is no permanent cure for Hyperhidrosis ; the success of each individual treatment
varies from patient to patient.
Iontophoresis has only recently begun to gain popularity for the treatment of
excessive sweating, but it is proving to be a reliable, cheaper
alternative to Botox injection, Antiperspirant and ETS surgery, without the risk of
unrereversible side effects.
