Our clinics in Brisbane and Ipswich offer a safe and effective treatment for hyperhidrosis. If excessive underarm sweat - or sweaty hands, feet or forehead - bothers you, talk to our friendly team about the medical solutions we can offer to curb the clamminess.
Under arm sweat
Axillary hyperhidrosis can be embarrassing and uncomfortable - not to mention ruining your clothes. If antiperspirant deodorants aren’t doing their job, our safe and effective injections can significantly reduce sweating.
Excessive and uncontrollable sweating of the hands or palms is called palmar hyperhidrosis, and can occur when you are nervous, excited - or without good reason at all! Give sweaty handshakes the slip and talk to us about the treatment available.
Excessive foot sweat can be the most offensive-smelling type of hyperhidrosis, especially when your feet are stuck in damp shoes all day. Plantar hyperhidrosis can be treated by the use of a common and popular cosmetic injectable that is also used for wrinkle reduction. Ask us how.
The treatment can be done in a lunch break, and takes about 20 minutes.
There is no recovery period, so you can go back to your normal activity on the day of the treatment.
Safe + non invasive
The product has been used to treat millions of people over the past 20 years, and is a common anti-wrinkle injection that’s also used for aesthetic patients in our clinic. It has a very safe track record.
How anti-sweat injections work…
A series of 20-30 very small injections are made under your skin. It temporarily blocks the chemical signals from the nerves that simulate the sweat glands. When these sweat glands don’t receive the chemical signals any longer, severe sweating is reduced. The sweat does not ‘bank up’ or go into another part of the body, because it simply is not produced in the treated area.
Will it hurt?
The injections are administered very quickly, and feel similar to ant bites. The sensation subsides immediately after the treatment. For patients who are concerned about discomfort, we ask them to arrive 20 minutes prior to their scheduled treatment time so we can apply topical anaesthetic that will numb the area.
I’m having surgery soon; can I have sweat reduction injections at the same time?
Some of our surgical patients opt to have their hyperhidrosis addressed during their planned surgical procedure. In this case, the injections are delivered by Dr Sharp while you are unconscious, under general anaesthetic.
