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.
