Answer

The treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis using the 1064-nm Nd-YAG laser was found to be effective and safe in a pilot trial. [75] Fractional carbon dioxide laser–assisted botulinum toxin type A (onabotulinumtoxinA) delivery for the treatment of primary palmar hyperhidrosis has also been used. [76] Radiofrequency thermotherapy has also been recommended. [77]
