Excessive Sweating Treatment

Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that results in excessive sweating. It occurs as a result of overactive sweat glands, resulting in excessive wetness, discomfort and social embarrassment. This condition can result in excessive sweat from a variety of areas of the body, including the scalp, underarms (axilla), palms of the hands, and soles of the feet. It is can affect up to 3 in 200 Australians. Fortunately there are treatments available for hyperhidrosis offered at Kaya Cosmedica.

Categories of Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis falls into two different categories:

  • Primary hyperhidrosis targets specific areas of the body, including those listed above. This type of excessive sweating is typically triggered by overactive nerves and often requires treatment to reduce the amount of wetness the patient experiences. In some cases, focal hyperhidrosis runs in families, suggesting a genetic component.
  • Secondary hyperhidrosis impacts the entire body and is often due to an underlying medical condition such as diabetes, menopause and thyroid conditions. It is important to undertake a medical consultation with Dr Parvin Khinda at Kaya Cosmedica to exclude underlying medical conditions prior to starting treatment.

What treatment is offered at Kaya Cosmedica?

There are a variety of options of treatment for hyperhidrosis, with the use of muscle relaxants (also used as anti-wrinkle injections) being one of the most effective. The treatment works by stopping the sympathetic nerves (which normally control sweating) from stimulating the sweat glands. The treatment effect can last between 6-12 months.

What does the Procedure Involve?

A thorough consultation is required prior to treatment, to exclude any underlying conditions. The area to be treated will be cleaned with an antiseptic, and numbing cream may be used. The area will be marked with a grid pattern to allow for even distribution of the treatment. Ice is used for added analgesia and the treatment is injected within a few minutes. On average there are 20 injections in each site and the treatment is relatively comfortable for our patients.

What is the downtime after treatment?

There may be some mild swelling and soreness in the treatment area, however you resume normal activities after treatment.

When Can I Expect Results?

Some patients notice an immediate reduction in sweat production, with improvement in the days following treatment. Full results become evident within about four weeks. The treatment effect can last between 6-12 months.

When you are selecting a provider for your excessive sweating treatment, it is essential to choose a physician experienced in using muscle relaxants/anti-wrinkle injections. These professionals have a thorough understanding of how the medication works and exactly how to administer it to produce the best possible results. Dr Parvin Khinda at Kaya Cosmedica has performed anti-ageing treatments on hundreds of patients using anti-wrinkle injections and also has treated numerous patients with hyperhidrosis using this method. She is qualified to help you overcome your excessive sweating, improving your comfort and your self-confidence.
