Treatment - Before the injection process, a numbing cream may be applied to the area being treated to reduce discomfort. The use of numbing cream can help make the injection process more comfortable for the patient, especially for those who are anxious about injections or have sensitive skin. A series of injections will take place in the effected areas. It takes three to four days for the results of injections for hyperhidrosis to become evident. Depending on each person, as well as the area being treated, the results last for up to six months

Aftercare- After receiving a hyperhidrosis treatment it is recommended that clients refrain from exercising and taking hot baths or showers for the remainder of the day. Applying ice to the treated area and taking a mild pain reliever can help alleviate tenderness. Normal activities can be resumed the following day
