Sweating is a normal condition, especially in the Queensland summer. However, some people suffer from excessive sweating even when the weather doesn’t justify it!
Treatments for excessive sweating (also known as Hyperhidrosis ) are fast, simple and highly effective. The treatment involves the tiniest little injections into the very superficial top layer of skin. These injections are of the same anti-wrinkle treatments that we use for crows feet and frown lines but injected just below the surface of the skin they immobilise the sweat glands rather than the muscle.
Anti-sweat injections are commonly used for:
- Under Arm
- Under Breast
- Back of Neck
We commonly treat both men and women for this condition all year round.
When considering all injectable cosmetic treatments, you should consider your choice of practitioner carefully. We believe that the best injectors can combine a thorough medical and anatomical knowledge and an eye for symmetry and artistry with lots of experience in administering cosmetic injectables. Put simply, all cosmetic injectable treatments are more complex than administering other types of injections such as vaccines, and you should ensure that you are in the safest possible hands.
