Frequently Asked Questions

What is Hyperhidrosis?

Excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis is caused by overactive sweat glands. It can affect many parts of the body, but most commonly the armpits.

Why do I sweat so much?

Most commonly excessive sweating is benign, however there are important medical conditions that may be responsible including infections and thyroid problems. Dr Aaron is a trained Medical Doctor who can recognise and refer you for appropriate care if there is any concern of underlying causes.

How does it work?

Anti-wrinkle injections are performed to the areas of concern with small needles. The product is placed just below the skin where the sweat glands are located, and works to block the action of the chemical that stimulates sweat gland activity.

The procedure takes around 10 minutes, and you can resume normal activity immediately. In general, results last up to 18 months.

Is Hyperdrosis treatment for excessive sweating safe?

Yes. Hyperhidrosis treatment is safe. As with any medical procedure, there are still risks and side effects. Dr Aaron will discuss these in depth with you during your consultation. Side effects are uncommon, but include:

  • Itching.
  • Temporary increase in sweating in untreated areas.

Rare risks include:

  • Temporary flu-like illness.

The side effects of Hyperhidrosis treatment are self-limiting, and will resolve on their own. This treatment is strictly not performed in people who are pregnant, breastfeeding, having IVF treatment, or planning any of the aforementioned; or in those with underlying neuromuscular conditions including Myaesthenia Gravis and Eaton Lambert syndrome.

What are the potential side effects?

Bruising and swelling are rare. There is an extremely low risk of a temporary cold like illness that resolves on its own.

What does hyperdrosis treatment involve?

Hyperhidrosis treatment uses Anti Wrinkle injections to stop armpit sweating. Following a thorough consultation and assessment, Dr Aaron will advise on the amount of treatment required to achieve your goals. The procedure takes approximately 15 minutes, and there is only mild discomfort. A very small needle is used to inject the product just under the skin, and some people report a slight stinging sensation as the product is being injected. There tends to be no discomoft or pain after the injection. The results will appear between 2 and 4 weeks. Dr Aaron does not routinely follow up his Hyperhidrosis patients. Repeat treatment may be required at 4 weeks to optomise the outcome.

How long does Hyperdrosis last?

Hyperhidrosis treatment last 6-12 months, with subsequent treatments having a significantly better effect compared to the initial treatment.

  • Ceasing all anti-inflammatories, aspirin, herbal supplements, fish oil, krill oil, glucosamine and vitamin E 1 week before your treatment (Unless you have been advised to take these by a Medical Practitioner).
  • Avoiding alcohol for 2 days before your treatment.

If you do not adhere to the above your treatment may still proceed, but you will have a higher risk of side effects.
