Reversal of ETS

+1

Compensatory sweating, once established, may be permanent. The technique of micro ETS allows 'reversal' via clip removal, but clip removal DOES NOT mean that compensatory sweating will go away. It may take 1 year or more to get some resolution of the comensatory sweating. On the other hand, since the clip crushes the nerve, you may not see a difference at all once the clip is removed.
