We provide lasting treatments for excessive sweating
Excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, can be an incredibly anxiety-inducing condition. Everyone sweats in hot weather, but for the two to three percent of the population who suffer from hyperhidrosis, the sweat glands just don’t shut off. If you’re seeking treatment because you know what it’s like to be sitting in a cool room completely immobile and still dripping in sweat, then know that you’ve come to the right place. Our anti-sweating injections can help to alleviate the problem. In most cases, the results from a single treatment will even last six to eight months (that is, all summer!)
What is anti-sweating treatment?
Anti-sweating treatments involve the use of a formula that is injected into the site of excessive sweating. The formula is designed to block the nerves that are responsible for activating the body’s sweat glands.
Excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis is a condition that can be caused by a number of factors. Some of the most common causes of the condition include certain medical conditions, like heart disease and hyperthyroidism. It often occurs during menopause, but can also begin in childhood for many people. The condition generally causes excessive sweating in areas like the underarms, head, face, hands, and feet.
What should I expect at the consultation?
If you suffer from excessive sweating and are considering an anti-sweating treatment, we recommend that you come in for a personal consultation at the clinic. This will give you the opportunity to raise any questions or concerns you might have about the procedure, and ensure that it is the right treatment for your particular needs.
How does the anti-sweating treatment work?
Our doctors utilise a natural, purified protein with muscle-relaxing properties to de-activate smooth muscle within sweat glands, reducing their activity.
Tiny needles are used to inject the product just underneath the skin. A numbing cream can be applied to the area prior to treatment, although most clients find this unnecessary as the treatment is quick and only mildly uncomfortable.
The formula is injected below the skin’s surface with the use of a very fine needle. During the treatment session, your doctor will administer multiple injections into the area of concern. The number of injections you require will depend on the site of treatment, as well as the severity of your condition.
What can the treatment be used for?
While it’s generally people who suffer from hyperhidrosis who seek out this treatment, it can also be an effective option for people who deal with a normal amount of sweating. The reduction of sweating achieved through anti-sweating injections is far greater than the results that are achievable with a spray or roll-on antiperspirant. In fact, after undergoing this treatment many people no longer feel the need to utilise other forms of antiperspirant.
How long does recovery take?
Anti-sweating treatments are fairly simple and don’t cause any considerable pain or discomfort. You should be able to resume your normal activities immediately after the procedure. Some possible side effects of the treatment include some mild bruising at the site of the injections, and, in some cases, some minor tenderness.
What kind of results can I expect?
After treatment, you will no longer have to worry about personal odour, underarm stains or that sweaty handshake.
It may take up to a week for you to notice the results of your treatment, and two weeks to feel complete dryness at the site of treatment. It is important to note that the effects of the treatment, while long-lasting, are not permanent. For this reason, we recommend that you come in for follow-up appointments. Your doctor will advise you on how often you should receive anti-sweating injections, depending on your particular needs. Results of the treatment often last for up to eight months, although this varies from person to person.
How much does the treatment cost?
The cost of the treatment is $1,100 per area (both palms or both underarms).
