Answer

In addition to pharmacologic therapy, other treatments include surgical sympathectomy, radiofrequency ablation, [59] surgical excision of the affected areas, and subcutaneous liposuction. Each modality has been used effectively. Use of microneedle radiofrequency therapy for axillary hyperhidrosis has been recommended. [60]
