HOW DOES IT WORK?
At Rejuvenus Clinic, we understand how uncomfortable it can be to live with excess underarm sweating that ruin our clothes. This can have a significant impact on self-confidence and can affect your quality of life. Our staff offer both a comprehensive assessment and diagnosis of your excessive sweating problem, and also discuss all the treatment options including: prescription lotions, prescription pills, over the counter treatments, or Botox® (botulinum toxin) injections. Using BOTOX® can help counteract the symptoms of hyperhidrosis by blocking the communication between nerves and sweat glands.
Botox® has been FDA approved as a medication with a long-lasting effect on Hyperhidrosis. After the injections, Botox® will enter the nerve endings of sweat glands. Then it blocks the release of a chemical that signals the perspiration. This simple, safe procedure takes about 1 hour. Tiny pinpricks can be felt, but if needed, an anaesthetic cream can be applied beforehand to numb the skin during the procedure. There is no downtime, no surgery and minimal discomfort such as temporary swelling. Sweating is usually controlled for 6 to 12 months. Repeat treatments can be administered as the effects begin to wane.
Our skin experts can provide all the details you need to make an informed decision about the procedure.

Here is a list of our Frequently Asked Questions. If you have any other questions or concerns, our experts will provide you will all the information you need.
What is Hyperhydrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes excessive sweating unrelated to exercise or body temperature. This type of excessive sweating is much more severe than normal sweating and may affect the underarms, face, hands, and feet. Hyperhidrosis patients often experience sweat stains on their clothing, clammy or wet hands or feet, and excessive overall sweating throughout the year and regardless of activity levels.
How Does the Treatment Work?
Perspiration occurs when the brain sends signals through the nerves to the sweat glands telling the glands to produce sweat. The wrinkle-smoothing injectable works by disrupting these signals, preventing the message from getting through and thus reducing sweating. While sweating is essential to regulate the body's temperature, there are millions of sweat glands on the human body. The treatment affects only a handful of these glands, making it as safe as it is effective. Over time, the active ingredient will wear off and be naturally metabolised by the body. Most patients only need to come in for treatment about twice yearly and sometimes less frequently.
How Do I Treat Excessive Sweating?
At Rejuvenus Clinic, our dermatologists and patients alike often prefer a neuromodulator product that is also used as a wrinkle-smoothing injectable for treating excessive sweating. The active ingredient in these products temporarily blocks nerve signals that stimulate the body to produce sweat, resulting in noticeably drier treatment areas. Proven safe and effective for this purpose, several quick injections once or twice yearly is enough to keep excessive sweating at bay.
Is Treatment for Excessive Sweating Right for Me?
Treatment with wrinkle-smoothing injectable may indeed be right for you if you've been diagnosed with hyperhidrosis or if your sweating is excessive enough to regularly soak your clothing or cause you embarrassment or discomfort and if you've failed to respond to over-the-counter remedies. Wrinkle-smoothing injectable is well-tolerated by nearly everyone and is considered one of the most effective temporary solutions for hyperhidrosis. One of our dermatologists will review the various treatment options with you and formulate a customised treatment plan to meet your unique needs.
Who is a good candidate for Hyperhydrosis Treatment ?
Those with hyperhidrosis whose excessive sweating causes discomfort or self-consciousness can benefit from hyperhidrosis treatment. Be sure to speak with our specialist regarding any allergies or health conditions that you may have so that she can safely prescribe the best hyperhidrosis treatment option for you. The results are dramatic and can last for as long as 10 to 12 months. Most of our clients receiving this treatment have been perspiration-free for nine months with gradual resumption to their normal perspiration after this time. Do not hesitate to contact us to learn more!
What Can I Expect?
Your hyperhidrosis treatment is a relatively brief in-office procedure. Your practitioner uses a fine needle to administer a series of injections, each of which lasts only a moment. After your appointment, you may immediately return to your normal activities. Side effects are typically minimal and limited to the injection sites. They can include itchiness, tenderness, redness, and bruising. Over the following weeks, you should notice your sweating gradually diminishing, with measurable results you can enjoy for months.
