Excessive sweating/hyperhydrosis

What is excessive sweating?

Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) affects millions of people all over the world. When sweating matures and becomes excessive, it can be distressing and uncomfortable. Unconstrained sweating can develop in different areas of the body including the underarms, feet or hands. Despite the fact that stress and high temperatures can raise perspiration levels, they do not cause hyperhidrosis. Excessive sweating can upset many aspects of an individual’s life including work, self-esteem, relationships, and overall well-being.

At Mira Clinic in Perth, our highly experienced nurses treat many clients with differing degrees of hyperhidrosis using dermal fillers which target sweating at its source.

What causes excessive sweating?

Overactive sweat glands create hyperhidrosis, this condition may be a physiological condition or an inherited trait that doesn’t allow the body to regulate its temperature properly. The eccrine glands live in different concentrations all through the skin. Eccrine sweat dissolves on the skin’s surface and an exchange of thermal energy occurs,mainly from direct guidance from the blood vessel’s supply to the skin. Even if the glands are normal, there is an unusual neurologic response to stimuli in the sweat areas. The eccrine sweat glands are concentrated in the soles, armpits and palms.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are natural, purified proteins that block the release of a chemical that signals perspiration on a short-term basis, helping to minimise excessive sweating.


How does the treatment work?

Dermal fillers are used to help excessive sweating by locating the sweat at its source. Once the filler is injected by one of our registered nurses, it is inserted into particular glands in the underarms that are accountable for excessive sweating. There, it stops the discharge of the chemical that signals the body to generate perspiration.

What does the treatment involve?

At Mira Clinic, during your consultation, our nurses will determine if dermal fillers are a suitable treatment for you.

The treatment is a non-invasive procedure where a tiny amount of solution is injected into the armpits with a fine needle. The process takes approximately 30 minutes. Any discomfort is brief, and usually, a stinging sensation occurs but for just a few seconds. Patients can return to normal activities right after the session.

Following the procedure, it takes approximately one week for the treatment to take full effect.

How long do the results last?

After treatment, most of our patients experience about an 80 percent reduction in sweating. The effects vary from patient to patient.
