MALE EXCESSIVE SWEATING (Male Hyperhidrosis)
TREATING HYPERHIDROSIS WITH COSMETIC INJECTIONS
Hyperhidrosis is the distressing and excessive sweating beneath the armpits, palms or feet. Males are affected twice as often by this condition and their lives can be adversely affected by the embarressment from sweating badly from the face during a stressful meeting or being inconvenienced in social situations. The use of modern cosmetic injections have been a revolution in the treatment of hyperhidrosis and are a low risk, convenient and very effective way of normalising the sweating for up to 12 months. After treatment patients can go out with the freedom and confidence in knowing sweating has been drastically reduced to normal levels.
WHY SHOULD MY HYPERHIDROSIS TREATMENT BE PERFORMED BY A QUALIFIED DOCTOR AT KIORA?
In response to a number of tragic and well publicised adverse cosmetic outcomes the Australian Medical Board Guidelines were changed on the 1st of October 2016. The law now requires all patients undergoing cosmetic procedures such as hyperhidrosis treatment and dermal fillers to be consulted personally by a qualified Doctor. A nurse-only consultation is illegal. At Kiora, to maximise safety and minimise the reaction time to unexpected events, all such procedures have always been performed personally by an experienced and qualified Cosmetic Doctor. We are proud we have always acted in the best interests of our patients and prioritised safety; preempting the Medical Board by over 10yrs
HOW DO COSMETIC INJECTIONS STOP THE SWEATING?
The sweat glands are activated by the neurotransmitter acetylecholine. The cosmetic injections work to normalise excessive sweating by inhibiting the release of this neurotransmitter. Kiora's Cosmetic Doctors precisely place a series of superficial "blebs" to inhibit the sweat glands beneath your armpits or palms enabling you to enjoy hot summer days free from the worries of distressing sweating.
