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 simple treatment, which has helped many of our past patients regain their confidence.
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.
