Hyperhidrosis Excessive Sweating Treatment

Excessive sweating, also called Hyperhidrosis, is a common problem that can be quite frustrating and embarrassing for the sufferer. While sweating is a natural physiological phenomenon, Hyperhidrosis is often a result of the nerves responsible for signalling your sweat glands to excessively sweat. This issue is confined to areas of the body with a relatively high concentration of sweat glands such as the underarms, palms and soles. Luckily, this concern can is treatable using small injections.
Our Hyperhidrosis treatment in Brisbane is a non-surgical option for providing relief from excessive sweating. Small doses of a neurotoxin are injected just below the surface of the problem area by our experienced registered nurse. The neurotoxin temporarily blocks the nerves that cause excessive sweating for up to eight months.
We highly recommend a consultation appointment with our registered nurse to gain a better understanding of your issue. Our nurse will look into the history of your issue and perform a starch-iodine test to determine where on the skin the excessive sweating is occurring.
Total procedure time is roughly 20 minutes, and it takes 7 or so days for the treatment to take full effect.
