Sweating excessively is a common problem amongst both male and female and is technically termed as hyperhidrosis. The sweating can be in various parts of the body but tends to be common on the fair and hairline area, groyne and primarily the underarms. Sweating is a completely natural body function that occurs to regulate body temperature but when it is excessive it is termed as hyperhidrosis.
Hyperhidrosis can be classified dependent on the time of onset and can be either congenital or acquired. Focal hyperhidrosis is found to commence during adolescence or in some cases before and seems to be an inherited genetic trait. Secondary hyperhidrosis, which can start at any point in life. This can be due to a disorder of the thyroid or pituitary glands, diabetes, tumours, menopause or certain drugs.
Anti-wrinkle injections, normally utilised to help reduce facial wrinkles can also be used to stop sweating. Anti-wrinkle injections are commonly used for the treatment of hyperhidrosis, specifically in the underarms, face and scalp areas. It can also be used in the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet but is painful to inject in this area and will require some form of sedation. The underarms and scalp area can be treated using a local anaesthetic cream.
The Anti-wrinkle injections work by blocking the nerve signal to the sweat glands in the area it is injected into. Commonly 100 units are used for the underarm area.
After application of the anaesthetic cream, a starch-iodine test is usually performed. This involves putting iodine on the area to be treated and allowing the patient to sweat for short period of time. Starch is then placed on the area and the sweaty areas highlight in black and identified for treatment with the injections
The anti-wrinkle injection is then injected superficially into the area with numerous small injections. The process takes around 30-60 minutes depending on the size of the area requiring treatment. The effects take around 3-10 days to be noticed with full effects within 2 weeks. Anti-wrinkle injections last for between 8 weeks to 4 months depending upon the client and then must be repeated.
There is usually no down time with anti-wrinkle injections and patients can return to normal life immediately following treatment.
The Anti-Sweat injection treatment can target any area of the body that suffers from excessive sweating. We as Cosmetic Doctors are able to test the right areas of excessive sweating and localise our treatment to the problem areas. Areas that are most effective for our treatment are the armpits, the hands and the scalp. However Anti-Sweat injections cannot be used to treat very large areas.
At the hands of an experienced Cosmetic Doctor, the treatment should not take longer than 15 – 20 minutes. It is a quick walk to walk out procedure and can be easily completed in a lunch break at work.
Our treatments usually last for 9 to 12 months depending on the circumstances. Some patients have noticed the treatment lasting even longer than that, however, each individual is different. These are just guidelines and as your body has repeat treatments then we will be able to use a reduced quantity of product to treat hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating.
There is no big side effect arising out of the non-surgical recommended treatment for excessive sweating at the Melbourne clinic. The botulinum toxin present in the medicine is likely to cause a mild irritation in some people. But, it can be eliminated by altering the quantity of medicine from time to time.
Approximately costs: Range from around $1,000 – $1500.
