Excessive Sweating (hyperhidrosis)

For excessive armpit and palm sweating, Asterie Clinic offers botulinum toxin injections to stop sweating from overactive sweat glands.

QUICK INFO

Essential hyperhidrosis meaning excessive sweating of no known medical cause can be treated with injections of anti-wrinkle injections. We can inject the area to block nerves from activating the sweat glands in the armpit and palms.

THE PROCESS

Fine needles or a specialised injecting instrument are used to inject anti-wrinkle injections into the sweat glands of the treatment area. The procedure is relatively painless and give results that should last over 6 months.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the procedure like?

+

Before treatment the skin is anaesthetised with an anaesthetic cream and ice is applied. Serial injections of anti-wrinkle injections spaced about 1cm apart are injected into the skin over the area that is sweating heavily. 50-100 units are required for each palm or each armpit to reduce sweating. The injections take up to an hour with minimal down-time.

What are the risks?

+

The procedure is considered to be safe. The risks are similar to those of anti-wrinkle injections to the face. These include: mild swelling at the injection site (common), bruising at the injection site, headache, eyebrow or eyelid droop, blurred vision (rare), allergic reactions (rare), infection (rare) Injecting into the palms can also cause some weakness in the intrinsic muscles of the hand so these injections are not recommended for those with already reduced hand functionality.

How long do results last?

+

Results last for up to 9 months time and the effects start to work in a week.
