What is hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) can cause significant discomfort and often anxiety for those who suffer from it. We all sweat in hot weather, but for the small percentage of the population that suffer from hyperhidrosis, the sweat glands continue to produce sweat even in colder temperatures. Read on to find out more information about our hyperhidrosis treatment in Brisbane, Cairns & Trinity Beach.
Hyperhidrosis is the technical term for excessive sweating. It is a common condition involving overactive sweat glands of the underarms, hands and feet. The treatment is a simple and quick procedure involving superficial injections of an anti-wrinkle product (commonly used to soften facial lines), that blocks the release of the chemical that signals perspiration and reduces excessive sweating.
What are the benefits
of hyperhidrosis treatment?
There are numerous physical and mental benefits of having hyperhidrosis treatment:
- Stop excessive sweating in many areas of the body
- No longer need to use antiperspirant deodorant
- Improves self-confidence
- Reduces feelings of anxiety
- Eliminates unwanted sweat patches
- Removes the need for surgery
- Removes the need for oral medications which can have significant side effects
What are the common causes
of excessive sweating?
There are 2 types of hyperhidrosis (primary and secondary) and the causes of each are slightly different:
Primary hyperhidrosis (also known as axillary hyperhidrosis) is the most common type and affects the axillae, hands and feet (areas of the body with a relatively high concentration of sweat glands). The condition is usually inherited and typically begins in childhood and then gets worse with puberty, especially in women.
Secondary hyperhidrosis is either caused by an underlying medical condition or by taking certain medications and may cause uncontrollable sweating all over the body. It can also lead to other symptoms including fatigue and headaches.
An anti-wrinkle product is used to effectively treat
excessive sweating in a number of areas of the body.
After having anti-sweating injections many people no longer
feel the need to use other forms of antiperspirant.
Am I a good candidate for hyperhidrosis treatment?
If you suffer from overactive sweat glands and the condition leaves you feeling uncomfortable and anxious then you may want to seek treatment for excessive sweating. However, some people also choose to have anti-sweating injections as they are far more effective than a spray or roll-on antiperspirant. In fact, after undergoing this treatment many people no longer feel the need to use other forms of antiperspirant.
How is the excessive sweating treatment carried out at Jade Cosmetic Clinic in Brisbane?
If you choose to have your hyperhidrosis treatment in Brisbane with us at Jade Cosmetic Clinic, this is what you can expect:
At your consultation, one of our Registered Cosmetic Nurses will ask you about your needs and expectations and answer any additional questions you may have about the procedure and how it works. You will also have the opportunity to raise any questions or concerns you might have about the procedure, and ensure that it is the right treatment for your particular needs.
The procedure itself is quick and simple and involves injections of a muscle relaxant via a very fine needle, which then blocks the release of the chemical that signals perspiration. A numbing cream can be applied to the area prior to treatment, although most clients find this unnecessary as the treatment is quick and only mildly uncomfortable.
Positive effects are noticed as early as 5 days after treatment and have a duration of 9 to 12 months. It is important to note that the effects of the treatment, while long-lasting, are not permanent. For this reason, we recommend that you come in for follow-up appointments.
How much does
The cost of the treatment is $1,500 per area (both palms or both underarms for example). In order to find out exactly how much the treatment would cost you, we recommend booking an initial consultation with us. That way we can come up with a bespoke treatment plan that suits your individual needs.
The anti-sweating injections can also reduce
excessive sweating in your hands and feet.

The most effective treatment will depend on which form of hyperhidrosis you suffer from and your particular symptoms. Surgery, oral medications and injections are the 3 treatments currently available. Anti-sweating injections have proven to be very effective and have the least side effects/downtime of all of the treatment options.
No, unfortunately, there is currently no permanent cure for hyperhidrosis. However, anti-sweating injections are highly effective at treating the condition.
Your GP can help you understand the root cause of your excessive sweating and if necessary can prescribe you some oral medication for the condition. However, these oral medications often have a number of side effects, unlike anti-sweating injections.
For some lucky individuals, the condition has been known to go away naturally. However, this is very rare and for most who suffer from hyperhidrosis, the condition doesn’t clear up on its own.
Some possible side effects of the treatment include some mild bruising or small red bumps at the injection site, and, in some cases, some minor tenderness. Note though that this is completely normal and will clear up fairly quickly.
Yes absolutely, both women and men can be treated for severe sweating. Hyperhidrosis affects both men and women and so the treatment is designed to be suitable for both.
A very fine needle is used for the injections so there is no pain and most clients report experiencing very mild discomfort. A numbing cream can be applied to the area prior to treatment to reduce any discomfort even further.
