Excessive Sweating

At Adelaide Plastic Surgery we understand that excess sweating, also known as axillary hyperhidrosis, can be difficult (and sometimes embarrassing) to live with or discuss. It can affect your self-confidence due to the accompanying odour, damage your clothes and inhibit your ability to wear particular fabrics, colours or outfits.

If you are seeking a solution to this condition, we are pleased to offer a choice of two fast and simple procedures, which have helped many of our past patients regain their confidence.

We’re all about you, your journey, your way.

Further Information

Injectable Treatment

What is the procedure?

This is a non-invasive treatment that involves tiny, sub-dermal injections of a purified protein into your armpits. This medication will either reduce the sweat under your armpits to normal levels or stop them sweating altogether. It does so by blocking the neurotransmitters that stimulate the production of perspiration. In other words, inactivating the sweat glands.

How many treatments will I need?

This is a semi-permanent option for reduced underarm sweating. The effects of individual treatments will generally last between six to nine months, after which the treatment will need to be repeated.

When should I notice a difference in underarm sweating?

This treatment is not immediate, and can take up to 2 weeks before full treatment results are achieved.

miraDry Treatment

What is miraDry?

miraDry is a non-surgical procedure that safely provides a permanent, lasting reduction of underarm sweat. The treatment works by delivering precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the underarm area, eliminating the effected sweat glands. Once these glands are gone, they do not grow back, resulting in a permanent reduction of underarm sweat.

How many treatments will I need?

Most patients require only one treatment. Heavy sweating, or people suffering from hyperhidrosis, may require 2 or more treatments to ensure maximal and permanent sweat reduction. Each appointment lasts around an hour, and is spaced 3 months apart.

When should I notice a difference in underarm sweating?

Most patients will notice a marked reduction in underarm sweating within 1–2 days of the miraDry procedure.
