How Does Treating Excessive Sweating Work?

We use a treatment called Hyperhidrosis Injections, and this uses the same active ingredient as Anti-Wrinkle Injections. With this type of treatment, small quantities are injected just below the surface of the skin. Depending on the area being treated, this can involve one or more injections.

The injections are designed to block the nerve impulses from reaching the treated area, and this deactivates the sweat glands.

Injectable treatments for hyperhidrosis can typically last between 6-12 months. This varies person-to-person, and depends on how quickly the effects are reabsorbed back into the body and the effects disappear.

Although we are not allowed to disclose the brand of the injection we use on our website (we can let you know during your consultation), what we can say is that we source a high-quality product that delivers great results for our clients and lasts longer. The most common time frame is generally 9 months or more before the next treatment is needed. This gives you a much better result without the excessive costs.

Aftercare for Excessive Sweating Treatments

Our staff are specialised in treating hyperhidrosis throughout the Gippsland area. We have helped patients treat their excessive sweating using only the finest products available to the market.

The treatment for hyperhidrosis is non-invasive and most people find the process relatively pain-free. You may experience some small bruising, redness or irritation around the injection site. This is a completely normal side-effect and nothing to worry about. If you do experience these symptoms, it typically lasts for no longer than a week.

Whilst the process is nice and simple, we do recommend some post-treatment care which will help provide the best results for your treatment and keep you nice and comfortable afterwards.

Here are our simple tips:

  • Do not consume alcohol for 24 hours leading up to, and on the day of the procedure.
  • Remain upright as much as you can for at least 4 hours following the procedure.
  • Do not apply makeup around the treated area for at least 12 hours following the procedure.
  • Do not rub or massage the treated area for at least 12 hours following the procedure. We recommend wearing loose-fitted clothing around the treated area.
  • Avoid exercise or excessive exertion for at least 24 hour following treatment.
  • And avoid excessive heat (e.g. sauna) and sun for at least 3 weeks following treatment.

We recommend a follow up consultation 2 weeks following your hyperhidrosis treatment. This is when the full effect of your treatment should be in place. We will arrange the follow-up appointment with you at the time of your treatment.

Excessive Sweating Treatments – Frequently Asked Questions

What causes hyperhidrosis?
There can actually be a few different causes for hyperhidrosis. It may be genetic if your family has a history of excessive sweating.

There can however be other medical causes for this, which includes menopause, obesity etc. In that case, we recommend that you see your GP before starting your treatments.

How does anti-wrinkle injections for hyperhidrosis differ from over-the-counter treatments?
Over the counter treatments typically involve daily applications of creams, or medicated deodorants. The benefit of treating via injections is that it is longer-lasting (typically 9 months), and does not involve surgery.
If I treat one area for hyperhidrosis, will it create more sweat in other areas?
A common myth we often hear is that when you treat one area (such as the underarm), more sweat is generated in other areas as compensation. This is not true, and it does not stimulate more sweat in other areas.
How long does the hyperhidrosis treatment take?
Treatments are relatively quick, and shouldn’t take any longer than 15-20 minutes. You can even get this done in your lunch break.
How many treatments will I need?
Treatments for hyperhidrosis are not permanent. As the effects wear off – sweat glands will become reactivated. You will need to continue with maintenance treatments, which typically lasts around 9 months.
Does the treatment hurt?
Our treatments use anti-wrinkle injections. Our staff are fully-qualified nurses who are experienced in providing careful administration of injections. We use a very fine needle just below the surface of the skin. Most people express they don’t feel any pain, but you will feel a small pin-prick.
How long until I see results?
This depends person-to-person. For some people it can be instant, and for others it can take up to 4 days to see improvement. The full effects are usually seen within 2 weeks, which is when we recommend you have your follow-up appointment with us to check how it’s all going.
What brand do you use for your anti-wrinkle injectable?
We use an anti-wrinkle injectable which is designed as a muscle relaxant to treat your excessive sweating. We are unable to disclose the brand that we use due to Australian regulations. However we can discuss this during your consultation with us. What we can say though is that we only source quality products that provide better and longer-lasting results.
