Afraid to shake hands? Wear certain colours or fabrics? Do you need to change clothes repeatedly throughout the day? If you experience focal or ‘primary’ hyperhidrosis – which occurs in specific areas, or ‘generalised’ hyperhidrosis, which occurs all over the body – we can treat that with wrinkle reduction treatments.

What is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating, well beyond the natural cooling the body needs to regulate temperature. It often occurs in the armpits, hands and feet, but it can also affect the scalp, face, and entire body. Its cause is unknown, and while it isn’t medically harmful, it can be socially debilitating.

How do Hyperhidrosis Treatments work?

Sweat reduction treatment works by blocking the neural signals which stimulate activity in the sweat glands. The treatment is able to prevent localised sweating while the body continues normal moisture production elsewhere. Our experienced Registered Nurses create a personalised treatment plan to significantly reduce excessive sweating.

  • We advise clients to avoid alcohol for 24 hours prior to treatment, as it thins the blood and may lead to bleeding.
  • We do not treat clients who are pregnant or breast-feeding with cosmetic injections.  We recommend that you defer such treatments during these times.
  • It is important that you remain upright – no reclining – for four hours following treatment.
  • Do not rub or cause friction around the injected area for at least 12 hours following treatment.
  • Do not apply makeup for 12 hours, unless you are using Jane Iredale mineral makeup, which is not absorbed by the skin.
  • Do not engage in any exercise or exertion for 24 hours.
  • Do not undergo any skin treatments (eg microdermabrasion, peels or laser skin rejuvenation) for one week.
  • Some bruising is normal and may last for seven days.  If bruising lasts more than seven days or if you have any concerns, please contact us.
  • No alcohol on the day of treatment – thin blood and cause bleeping.
  • Some clients experience minor bumps, pimples or redness at the injection points.  This is normal and temporary.
  • Avoid sun and heat (eg saunas, hot-tubs) for three weeks.

What is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is an excessive perspiration condition, typically affecting the underarms, hands, feet, scalp, face, and even all over the body. The cause is unknown but it can be an indication of a serious, underlying medical condition and may recommend that you see your GP.

How can Wrinkle Reduction treatments help with Hyperhidrosis?

Wrinkle reduction treatments can help control the symptoms of hyperhidrosis by blocking the neural signals that stimulate activity in the sweat glands.

How long does Hyperhidrosis Treatment last?

No. Results last up to 9 months, however, it is a safe, quick, and effective method for managing symptoms where over-the-counter remedies have failed.

What does the Hyperhidrosis Treatment involve?

Our Registered Nurses administer a number of small injections to the treatment areas to help block the signal from the brain to the sweat glands that instructs them to produce sweat. Results may be seen within four to ten days and last up to 9 months. Maintenance treatments should be delivered every 6 to 9 months.

How often will I require Hyperhidrosis treatments?

Maintenance treatments are usually required every 6-9 months.
