Anti-Wrinkle injections to reduce excessive sweating.
Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition. In affected individuals excessive sweating occurs unpredictable without normal stimuli such as exercise, anxiety or rise in body temperature. In most cases, sweating is perfectly natural. Sweating usually occurs in warm temperatures, during exercise or in response to situations that make you nervous, angry, embarrassed or scared.
Uncontrolled sweating leads to significant discomfort, which can be both physically or emotionally traumatising. Treatments such as medication, anti-wrinkle injections and antipersperants can assist with hyperhidrosis.
There are a number of medical conditions that can cause hyperhidrosis including:
It is important to understand why you have hyperhidrosis to exclude an underlying cause prior to embarking on any treatment regime. Our Doctors at Advantage Skin Clinic offer a complimentary consultation prior to treatment of hyperhidrosis to determine if further investigation is required on an individual basis.
At Advantage Skin Clinic we offer anti-wrinkle injections for the treatment of primary axillary hyperhidrosis (severe sweating of the underarm). Small doses are injected into the underarm and may reduce sweating for five to nine months at a time. Anti-wrinkle injections have little to no side effects. They block the excretion of sweat from the sweat glands, which relieves the distress of hyperhidrosis.
