Excessive underarm sweat can have a significantly negative impact on your life. Not only is it socially embarrassing, it can also be costly due to clothing ruined by underarm stains. Equinox Beauty and Cosmetic Clinic is one of the top places in Perth to manage your excess sweating or hyperhidrosis problem. Our staff of outstanding Perth Cosmetic Nurse Injectors can offer both a comprehensive assessment and treatment of your excessive sweating problem through anti-sweating injections.
Excessive Underarm Sweating
Excessive sweating in the armpit area is medically known as primary axillary hyperhidrosis. This can be an embarrassing condition as it is visible to others when sweat soaks through clothing. In cases of severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis, no amount of antiperspirant reduces the amount of sweat produced under the arms. At Equinox, we offer treatment with Muscle Relaxer Injection to address excessive underarm sweating. This treatment offers a long-term reduction in excessive sweating, enabling you to feel more confident in social and professional situations.
What Does Treatment with Dermal Fillers Involve?
Excessive sweating of the armpits can be treated with the same injections that are used to relax facial muscles for wrinkle removal to stop signals travelling between nerves and sweat glands. Blocking the signal to the sweat glands significantly decreases their activity.
What is the Down Time and After Care Following Dermal Fillers?
Common short-term side effects of muscle relaxant treatments for excessive sweating include redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising in the armpits.
There is no recovery time necessary, and patients can return home or to work immediately after the injection process. There are no specific aftercare instructions and no downtime.
When will I See the Results and How Long do the Results Last?
After the injection you should see a noticeable reduction in sweat within about 7–14 days.
These injections have been shown to be effective in 95% of patients with excessive underarm sweating, and one treatment may last for 6–9 months.
