Excessive Sweating Treatment Melbourne | Hyperhidrosis Treated by Cosmetic Doctors

For people with hyperhidrosis commonly known as excessive sweating issues, it can be incredibly detrimental to their confidence both professionally and socially. While it can be an incredibly frustrating condition to deal with it can be treated often with very satisfactory results. Don’t let excessive sweating hold you back from enjoying your life to the fullest and come and talk to Aesthetic Studio Clinic about our hyperhidrosis treatment options.

What is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is defined as a condition that results in excessive sweating outside of what would be normal for the needs of the body. If you find yourself sweating profusely without any seemingly logical cause even with the application of antiperspirants, you may find this is a problem you are experiencing.

Hyperhidrosis usually falls into two distinct categories, primary hyperhidrosis, and secondary hyperhidrosis. Primary hyperhidrosis typically has no observable underlying cause or reason for occurring, though there is usually a family history pointing to a possible genetic cause for some people. Primary hyperhidrosis issues are estimated to affect around 3% of the population across a broad spectrum of ages.

Secondary hyperhidrosis is generally a result of medical conditions such as metabolic disorder, cardiovascular disorders, infections, endocrine disorders, neoplastic diseases, and even mental health-related issues such as anxiety or excessive stress. If you have problems with secondary hyperhidrosis treatment will likely require you to address the underlying problem to resolve the issue properly.

Treating Hyperhidrosis With Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Due to TGA regulations, we are unable to discuss the specific type of anti-wrinkle injections used online, though it is one you are likely familiar with hearing about a lot over time. Not many people are aware however it can be a very effective treatment for primary hyperhidrosis, not just for wrinkles and other commonly used approaches. Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to treat sweating not only under the arms but also the hards, feet, and some parts of the face without visibly affecting facial movement or expression.

Anti-wrinkle injections relax underlying muscles at the injection site; this can be used to target the nerves of sweat glands and decrease sweat production through this mechanism. This approach can reduce sweating for patients lasting between 6-12 months, with the average duration being around 8 months. While not permanent they are quick to administer so if you are suffering from hyperhidrosis this minor inconvenience of the occasional top up is likely of little concern to you. This lack of permanence also gives the ability to moderate a treatment so that the result is sufficient, while not excessive. Reducing the body’s natural ability to sweat to the extreme is counterintuitive as well, so if you find the first treatment was effective but would find a little more intensity helpful this can be topped up later until you reach your desired result.

Is Treating Hyperhidrosis with Anti-Wrinkle Injections Safe?

Anti-wrinkle injections have been used extensively for years in not just by Cosmetic Doctors but for other medical concerns as well to reduce problems such as muscular spasm issues. They have a sound track record for safety, while some side effects can occur, these are primarily caused by improper injection by inexperienced injectors.

When it comes to using them to treat hyperhidrosis many of the common side effects are unlikely to occur due to the areas being treated, especially when the face isn’t being addressed. While all cosmetic treatments have some risks and side effects, anti-wrinkle injections have a long record of use without any history of permanent harms. However, always ask your practitioner to explain all risks to you involved with not just this but any treatment you intend to undergo so you are capable of making an informed decision with all the information available to you.

At Aesthetic Studio Clinic we are no stranger to the use of anti-wrinkle injections, we have skillfully used them to deal with numerous patient concerns and enhancement requests. We are experienced in their use and only allow experienced and qualified Cosmetic Doctors to treat patients, never nurses or other practitioners that are technically qualified but not necessarily experienced to provide optimal outcomes.
