Sweat reduction injections aren’t new, but the effectiveness of this simple and common treatment is gaining popularity by men and women who are gaining control over excessive sweating.
Have you ever questioned why you might be sweaty year round, even without engaging in physical activity, experiencing a Perth summer, or eating a spicy meal? While sweating itself is normal and necessary, there is such a thing as excess sweating, otherwise known as Hyperhidrosis.
While the cause is not singular, factors may include anxiety, diet, lifestyle, hormones, genetics, medications and more. Many celebs have even shared their hyperhidrosis stories over the years, including big names like Halle Berry, Cameron Diaz, Steve Carell, Chrissy Teigen and Robert Patterson.
Anti-wrinkle injections, aka Wrinkle Relaxer’s, are used for a multitude of treatments, including wrinkle reduction. Fortunately, this is also a method of reducing the amount you sweat on your face and body.
How do I know this treatment is right for me and do I need a referral from my GP?
Sweat reduction injections are suitable for most people, providing you are over the age of 18 and in good health. No referral is required, upon making an appointment with our experienced and highly trained practitioner’s.
When is the best time to get anti-sweat injections?
This is solely dependant on the individual and their preferences. We tend to see an increase of this treatment in September and October, when winter winds down and spring commences. If your excess sweating is more prominent in the warmer months, we recommend having your treatment at least 5 weeks before summer officially arrives.
What areas can I have anti-sweat injections?
Hands, feet, underarms, scalp, some areas of the face.
Is there downtime? Can I go back to work after treatment?
No downtime is required and yes, in most cases you can resume your normal activities, post-treatment. Since we assess suitability on an individual basis, your practitioner will outline all after-care and advise of any limitations (if any), at your appointment.
How long do the results last?
Anywhere from 3 – 12 months. Results are patient-dependent and will always vary. Some individuals will find they may need a course of treatments, or top-ups a few weeks following their initial dose. Other’s may be lucky and get away with one treatment a year.
