Excessive Sweating Treatment Sydney NSW
Excessive sweating, also called hyperhidrosis, can affect various body parts. The main area requested for treatment at our clinic is the armpit. Both male and females are affected by this inconvenient condition. The tell-tale sign of wet underarm patches on clothing is often the motivation to seek treatment.
It is normal to increase perspiration during periods of higher temperatures and stress. However, many people suffer from excessive sweating. It may be an inherited condition that stops the body from properly regulating its temperature. There are some medical conditions that could be responsible for excessive sweating so having a medical history check is essential before starting treatment.
At Áda Clinic we specialise in non-surgical treatment with neuromodulator* injections. These tiny injections deliver a neurotoxin to the sweat gland where it blocks the release of the chemical signal that activates the sweat gland.
Other treatment options:
- Topical antiperspirants containing aluminium chloride
- Systemic medications e.g. anti-cholinergics, beta blockers
- Microwave therapy
- Non-surgical procedure, completed in-office
- The risk of side effects is rare
- Usually see results within 1 week
- No compensatory sweating in other body areas
After the first treatment, results will last up to 6 months. After the second and subsequent treatments you can expect positive results for at least 9 months. Commonly our patients will come in once a year to repeat the treatment.
The price will vary depending on the size of treatment area and the dose of neuromodulator needed. Our doctors will assess your suitability and give you a price quote before proceeding with treatment.
