Sweating is a natural mechanism to regulate body temperature. However, when this becomes exceedingly frequent, in the absence of any apparent reason such as strenuous physical activity or hot temperatures, it could likely be a case of hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating.
While this is not medically serious, those with this condition report experiencing anxiety, discomfort, inconvenience and even awkwardness in social situations – all of which can affect their quality of life. Thankfully, this can be changed with the help of our excessive sweating treatment at our Melbourne clinic.
At MLAC, we offer treatment for effectively managing excessive sweating, with our hyperhidrosis treatment in Melbourne.
As its name suggests, hyperhidrosis is a condition in which the body perspires much more than necessary, even when not triggered by heat or exercise. Apart from the sheer discomfort and social awkwardness, this could also cause practical problems in day-to-day life.
These can include:
– Frequent soaking through clothing
– Slippery grip due to increased sweating
– Frequent skin infections
– Skin that is constantly damp and clammy
– Restricted clothing choices that could hide sweat patches
Apart from exercising and high temperatures, there are some other known triggers for sweating, such as higher levels of stress or anxiety, as well as consumption of alcohol, caffeine and spicy food. The sweating that results from this is called apocrine sweating, and is quite different from eccrine or temperature regulating sweat.
MLAC offers treatment only for Axillary Hyperhidrosis (underarms). Treatment to reduce underarm perspiration use Anti-Wrinkle / muscle relaxant Injections (Botulinum Toxin). Injectable treatments have proven extremely effective as an excessive perspiration treatment, by helping reduce the level of sweating for extensive periods.
Anxious about what to expect during the excessive sweating treatment at our Melbourne clinic? There is no need to be concerned.
MLAC cosmetic injectors take care to minimise any discomfort by using a topical numbing cream before the hyperhidrosis treatment, superfine needles while injecting, and a cool pack to reduce any discomfort following treatment.
Our experienced MLAC cosmetic injector administers multiple injections into the dermis, which in turn prevents the sweat glands from becoming activated. The results from this treatment start becoming apparent within a few days, and their effect can last up to 6 to 12 months.
Injections for Hyperhidrosis treatment have no downtime, and clients are able to return to their regular routine soon after. MLAC is a trusted cosmetic clinic for hyperhidrosis treatment in Melbourne.
MLAC cosmetic injectors are experienced, and are known for their attention to detail, safety and comfort while administering treatments. Call the clinic or book online for a comprehensive consultation, for excessive perspiration treatment.
