Hyperhidrosis Treatment in Bayside, Melbourne

Hyperhidrosis is a physiological condition characterised by excessive or unexpected sweating. While it is natural for the body to sweat, sweating beyond what is necessary to maintain a normal body temperature can be irritating to the skin, embarrassing, and stressful.

People who suffer from hyperhidrosis may constantly worry about how much they are sweating. Hyperhidrosis can lead to mental health issues, and is commonly linked to body odour. Effective and long-lasting excessive sweating treatment is available to help alleviate these concerns.

How Does it Work?

Muscle relaxant injections can be used to block sweat glands. Normally, your nervous system activates your sweat glands when your body temperature rises. This is how your body automatically cools itself. In people with hyperhidrosis, however, the sweat glands are overactive, causing unwanted effects such as excessive sweaty underarms and hands. When you receive these injections, your overactive sweat glands are essentially weakened. This means that the sweat glands do not produce sweat and sebum in excess. Research has shown that this treatment is highly effective for hyperhidrosis.

Frequently Asked Questions

Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes an individual to sweat excessively in the absence of a usual sweating trigger, such as feeling hot or participating in physical activity. It occurs when the nerves that usually trigger sweating become overactive, resulting in excessive sweating. Hyperhidrosis can be worsened by stress and anxiety and can have a significant impact on a person’s self-confidence.

Hyperhidrosis injections can treat the underarms and hands, blocking overactive sweat glands that cause excessive sweating.

The treatment involves injecting a muscle relaxant into the sweat glands. This is performed in a sterile environment to minimise risks.

Neurotoxin injections for hyperhidrosis start working after 3-5 days and can continue having an effect for up to 6-9 months. Repeat injections will be required after this time.

Hyperhidrosis treatment can cause some pain, but numbing cream is available to minimise the sensation.
