Anti-Sweating Injections

Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a condition that affects both men and women. Whilst sweating is a completely normal fact of life, when it becomes unmanageable, it takes a significant toll on how we live our life with ease and confidence.

Feeling embarrassed about sweat stains on your favourite clothing can be easily avoided through non-surgical injectables. Performed by our qualified medical professionals, our Anti-Sweating Injections provide relief from excessive sweating by inactivating the sweat glands in your area of concern. Blocking the nerve pulse that reaches that area leads to less perspiration and allows you to return to living your life with confidence.

What to expect

How do anti-sweating injections work?

Small quantities of anti-wrinkle injections are administered into the treatment area (traditionally underarms) to block the message from your brain to your sweat glands. This blocking process temporarily inactivates your sweat glands which leads to less perspiration.

What are the benefits of anti-sweating injections?

For many, addressing Hyperhidrosis with Anti-Sweating Injections plays a significant role in restoring self-confidence. By providing a solution to excessive sweating, patients are able to return to activities such as sports and enjoying warm weather without the worry and hassle they’d experienced before.

How many treatments do I need?

Anti-Sweating treatments generally last around 6-12 months with repeat treatments required to maintain results. Depending on your Hyperhidrosis severity, your doctor will discuss your individual treatment plan.

I’m booked in for a treatment! Do I need to do anything beforehand?

Great! We look forward to welcoming you to The Skin Lab. Prior to your Anti-Sweating treatment, we encourage you to avoid excess exercise and alcohol consumption to ensure you achieve optimal results. We also recommend shaving your treatment area so your injections can be easily administered.

What are the costs, and is the treatment covered by Medicare?

Yes! Our hyperhidrosis treatments include a medicare rebate, however, a consultation will be required prior to your treatment. This is charged at $250, with a Medicare rebate of $76.80. The price of treatment is $500, with a medicare rebate of $220.

If you have a referral from your GP, you can book your pre-treatment consultation here with one of our on-site Dermatologists. If you do not currently have a GP referral, please book a medical consultation with Dr Jenkins.

What happens during my treatment?

All anti-sweating treatments begin with a comprehensive consultation where you’ll share your medical history, background and treatment goals. The severity of Hyperhidrosis will be determined to ensure you are suitable for the treatment and together, we’ll formulate a treatment plan to achieve your objectives and determine where injections will be administered.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections are administered into the treatment areas to begin the nerve blocking process and deactivate your sweat glands.

What can I expect afterwards?

There is no downtime associated with Anti-Sweating Injections so you’re able to return to your daily life immediately. Following your treatment, you will notice sweating will begin to subside with the full effect of your treatment taking place within 14 days. Your doctor will provide you comprehensive post-treatment advice and instructions. These include avoiding excess sun exposure, extreme hot or cold exposure (such as saunas or cryotherapy) and facial treatments such as massage or laser therapies that could alter your results.
