What are sweat reduction injections?

Excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, is a medical condition that affects many people. It’s characterised by an overproduction of sweat in various parts of the body including the hands, feet, face and underarms.

Those who suffer from this uncomfortable condition often experience embarrassing sweat marks, causing them to feel self-conscious and awkward in social situations.

We treat this condition through a series of small injections into the affected area. This can provide you with noticeable relief from excessive sweating for up to 12 months.

How does the treatment work?

The treatment, involving a series of small injections into the affected area, is a quick, effective, and non-invasive method for treating medically-diagnosed hyperhidrosis.

The injected solution functions to impede the release of the chemicals responsible for activating the body’s sweat glands and initiating perspiration.

Please be aware that these effects are localised to the treated areas only; the rest of the body will continue to perspire as normal. The injections can provide noticeable relief from excessive sweating for up to 12 months.

Who is a Good Candidate?

Hyperhidrosis treatment is suitable for those with excessive sweating on the hands, feet, underarms and face.

What happens during the treatment?

The treatment itself is relatively painless and once the consultation process is complete, it takes only a short period of time to perform.

What happens after the treatment?

There is virtually no downtime following the procedure, although it’s not unusual to experience mild tenderness and, in some cases, light bruising in the injected areas.

These effects generally subside shortly afterwards. It’s not uncommon for a top-up treatment to be performed two to four weeks following the initial treatment. This ensures the accuracy and longevity of the desired effects.
