Brisbane Treatment for Excessive Sweating

We understand it can be a very embarrassing problem for patients who suffer excessive sweating in the axilla, hands or feet. Excessive sweating in palms and hands can also affect a person’s ability to work.

The use of neurotoxin injections (muscle relaxants) to treat excessive sweating is the most evidence based solution with predictable results (longevity around 4-5 months).  Alternatively we can also consider a new potential permanent gradual Laser Sweat Glands Reduction using Fotona Laser treatment protocol.  This is a new method shared by Fotona Laser users, the evidence for this is limited to Fotona Laser user experience for the results.  

The injection method is a simple procedure which involves injections superficially into the skin, delivering neurotoxins to the sweat glands.  The most commonly requested areas are:  armpits (axillary hyperhidrosis); palms and feet.

The procedure is safe, easy to perform, well tolerated and will achieve the purpose of reducing sweat production for up to 4 to 5 months.

Topical anaesthesic cream is used to numb the areas prior to injections.

Price guide:  Approximately $750 (injections to both armpits or axilla; or both hands or both feet).

Permanent Laser Sweat Gland Reduction:  From $600 per treatment.  Generally at least 3-4 treatments are required.  Response may vary. 

An initial consultation with Dr Wong is required before any Laser treatments.
