Excessive sweating can be socially debilitating, don’t let it hold you back from living a full life.


Are you afraid to shake hands? Do you need to change clothes repeatedly throughout the day?

Hyperhydrosis is a condition that causes excessive sweating. It often occurs in the armpits, hands and feet, but it can also affect the scalp, face, and entire body. Its cause is unknown, and while it isn’t medically harmful, it can be socially debilitating.

Anti-wrinkle injections have been found to stop localised sweating in the arm pits and on the palm of the hands. The injections are able to prevent localised sweating while the body continues normal moisture.

How does it work?

Small quantities of the product are injected just below the surface of the skin by our medically trained doctor. Based on your assessment, multiple injections will be made throughout the treatment area for best results. This blocks the nerve impulse from reaching that area, and in turn, the sweat glands are inactivated. The result is less perspiration in the treatment area for up to nine months, at which time re-treatment is recommended.

What to expect after the treatment?

This treatment requires no downtime and you can return to your normal activities the following day. The treatment can take up to 2 weeks to take full effect and will last around 9-12 months.
