Muscle Relaxant Treatment for Excessive Sweating 

If you’re someone who experiences excessive sweating, rest assured that you are not alone. Hyperhidrosis affects 3 in every 100 Australians, and it can be an uncomfortable condition which adversely impacts social life and self-confidence. The good news is that anti-wrinkle injections are a safe, effective and straightforward treatment option which can put an end to unsightly sweat patches once and for all. Cosmetic Doctor Brisbane are highly skilled in administering anti-sweat treatments for the armpits. Here’s how we can help.   

How do Anti-Wrinkle Injections Reduce Sweating? 

Anti-wrinkle injections work by relaxing the muscles within the armpit, switching off the nerves responsible for sweat gland activation. This prevents overstimulation of the sweat glands, resulting in a significant decrease in the amount of sweat secreted throughout the day.   

Am I eligible for treatment? 

Most adults are eligible for hyperhidrosis treatment at Cosmetic Doctor Brisbane. If you’ve tried clinical anti-perspirants and failed to achieve the results you expect, you may wish to consider muscle relaxant treatment. During your initial consultation, we will determine your eligibility and answer any questions you may have about this treatment option.
