Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)

Hyperhidrosis is a condition characterised by excessive sweating. The substance used for anti wrinkle injections is an effective and minimally invasive treatment. It is injected into the affected areas, typically the hairline, underarms, palms or soles of the feet. It works by blocking the signals that stimulate sweat glands, reducing their activity. As a result excessive sweating is reduced providing much needed relief, and improving the quality of life for those affected by the condition.

Excessive Sweating/Hyperhidrosis


What is Hyperhidrosis?

When your body temperature rises, your nervous system automatically triggers your sweat glands. The sweat glands respond by producing perspiration. As the perspiration evaporates from the surface of your skin, it cools your body. 

Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that results in profuse sweating. It occurs due to overactive sweat glands, resulting in excessive wetness, discomfort and social embarrassment. This condition can produce excessive sweat from a variety of areas of the body, including the scalp, underarms (axilla), palms of the hands and soles of the feet. Hyperhidrosis can affect up to 3 in 200 Australians.

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.
