Excessive Sweating

Effective intervention to help minimise excessive sweating.

Hyperhidrosis is a condition that can affect both men and women.

 

Characterised by excessive sweating of the underarms, hands, feet, upper lip, forehead and or scalp; hyperhidrosis can occur anytime, even if you are resting or if it’s cold.

 

Anti-wrinkle injections are used for this treatment. They can transform everyday life by reducing, relieving and sometimes even stopping excessive sweating.  It can mean that you no longer need to worry about shaking or holding someone’s hand, or feel conscious of any undesirable sweating that can arise in social situations or meetings.

Is Hyperhidrosis treatment right for me?

Hyperhidrosis treatment is great if you’re often self-conscious about your sweating. It is a safe, effective solution to reduce the symptoms and the embarrassment it can often cause.

WHAT IS HYPERHIDROSIS?

A condition that is characterised by excessive sweating of the underarms, hands, feet, body or forehead. It can occur anytime, regardless of whether you are exercising or at rest.

WHAT CAUSES HYPERHIDROSIS?

Hyperhidrosis is often caused by a trigger in the nervous system, which produces excessive sweating and a rise in body temperature. It can also be caused by certain medical conditions, which we will discuss and explore during the initial consultation.

WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?

The common excessive sweating areas of the head and body.

 

Head
The scalp, forehead and upper lip are the main areas that can be treated. Plus, patients can enjoy the bonus of reduced forehead and peri-oral lines (lines around the mouth).

 

Body
For the body, the most common excessive sweating areas that can be treated include the underarms, hands and feet.

 

Both hands can be treated; however, we often only treat the dominant hand (to avoid a wet handshake). Feet can be also be treated; however, it is often more difficult due to the sensitivity of this area to injections.

 

It is important to note that when hand palms and soles of the feet are treated, it can lead to some muscle weakness, which the team will carefully monitor as part of the treatment plan.

HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU HAVE HYPERHIDROSIS?

You are frequently aware of excessive sweating of the hands, feet, underarms, or forehead. Even when not exercising, hot or nervous. It is an involuntary response that you are unable to control or effectively manage with antiperspirant products.

DO YOU NEED TO BE DIAGNOSED WITH HYPERHIDROSIS TO BE TREATED?

No, we can also treat those who just don’t want to sweat, namely those who frequently do presentations or are regularly on TV.

HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT FOR HYPERHIDROSIS LAST?

Results typically last approximately 6 months, before a repeat treatment is needed. Although this can vary depending on the individual and the area being treated.

HOW MUCH DOES YOUR HYPERHIDROSIS TREATMENT COST?

Underarms – from $990 for both

Hands – from $450 for each hand

Feet – from $800 for each foot

What to expect

A consultation with a doctor or nurse injector to discuss your problem areas, any prior treatments you may have tried and what might be the best treatment plan in the context of your medical history.

 

If the treatment is considered suitable for you, a small number of injections are administered to the problem region.  Ice is used to numb the areas and minimise discomfort.

 

Following treatment, clients usually report positive effects within two to seven days and experience reduced sweating for approximately three to six months, depending on the treated area, before a repeat treatment is required.
