What causes Excessive Sweating?
Hyperhidrosis is not just sweating due to stress or high temperatures, instead it is usually an inherited trait which stops your body from regulating its temperature correctly. Anti-Sweating Injections are now used to offer a solution to this problem.
How do Anti Sweat injections work?
Botulinum toxin is injected into the affected area, most commonly the underarm, to block the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands.
Anaesthetic cream is used to reduce discomfort before the injections are given. Approximately 20 injections will be required in each armpit. Recovery is instant and patients can resume routine activities on the same day as the procedure (*can vary from patient to patient). However it is advised to avoid activities that can increase sweating for up to 24 hours after your procedure.
When will you see results of your Excessive Sweating Treatment?
You should notice results within 4 week. In clinical studies, 95% of patients with Hyperhidrosis experienced an improvement in their excessive sweating by an average of 83% (*Results can vary from patient to patient).
How long will the Anti-Sweat Injections last?
A single 10-15 minute treatment can last up to 1 year (*Results can vary from patient to patient).
How much do Anti-Sweating Injections cost?
Anti-Sweating Injections start from around $1,000. Your initial consultation will cost $120, however this will be taken off your total cost if you decide to go ahead with treatment.
