Anti-Sweating Injections in Sydney

Request a Consultation

Many people suffer from persistent, frequent episodes of excessive sweating on their hands, underarms, or faces. The condition is called Hyperhidrosis and can lead to embarrassment in an attempt to conceal the wet spots.

Sweating is our body’s way of reducing our body temperature. The odour associated with sweating is due to the action of normal bacteria in our skin.

The medication used in anti-sweating injections has been used to safely treat muscle spasms in adults and children since the late 1960s. For twenty years, muscle-relaxing and anti-sweating injections have been used to reversibly control the muscles that produce wrinkles in our faces and that release sweat from sweat glands.

While this medication has been safely used for many years, it is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breast-feeding.

What does the procedure involve?

The dose and areas to be targeted will be determined in consultation with Dr. Kumar.

The area to be injected will be cleaned and mapped. A topical local anaesthetic can be used, or a nerve block will be given prior to anti-sweating injections into the hands. The anti-sweating injections are given using tiny 0.3-mL-sized syringes in a series of small injections. The effect of the injection will become apparent after 3-5 days and will persist for 6–12 months.

What are the risks of anti-sweating injections?

Slight tenderness and bruising can occur at the sight of an injection. This usually fades quickly and can be easily covered by makeup. While other side effects are reported, they are extremely rare and can be discussed during your consultation.
