Brisbane Treatment for Excessive Sweating
We understand it can be a very embarrassing problem for patients who suffer excessive sweating in the axilla, hands or feet. Excessive sweating in palms and hands can also affect a person’s ability to work.
We can use injections (similar to anti-wrinkle injections) to treat excessive sweating (longevity 4-6 months), or we can use a more permanent gradual Laser Sweat Glands Reduction treatment protocol.
The injection method is a very simple procedure which involves injections very superficially in the skin, delivering the treatment to the sweat glands. The most commonly requested areas are: armpits (axillary hyperhidrosis); palms and feet.
The procedure is safe, easy to perform, well tolerated and will achieve the purpose of reducing or abolishing sweat production for up to 6 months.
Topical anaesthesic cream is used to numb the areas prior to injections.
Price guide: Approximately $750 (injections to both armpits or axilla; or both hands or both feet).
Permanent Laser Sweat Gland Reduction: From $600 per treatment. Generally about 3-4 treatments are required.
