Excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, can result in unpleasant wetness, odour, discomfort and embarrassment for one in three Australians. Fortunately, it’s now a treatable condition.
While primary hyperhidrosis affects specific areas of the body like hands, scalp and underarms and is relatively straightforward to address, it’s important to differentiate between this and secondary hyperhidrosis, which affects the whole body and is caused by diabetes, menopause, or a thyroid condition.
The qualified team at Face by Rebecca will first conduct a thorough examination to ensure there’s no underlying medical condition, then design a treatment plan specifically tailored to your needs.
Commonly, this will include a series of injections of muscle relaxants to target overactive nerves in specific areas. Results will usually last between six to twelve months and will leave you feeling dry, comfortable and with renewed self confidence.
