WHAT IS EXCESSIVE SWEATING?
Sweating is considered excessive when it is more than what you would expect based on the level of your activity or stress or on the surrounding temperature. Excessive sweating usually affects the underarms, palms and soles of the feet. Because of these, it can disrupt everyday activities and cause social anxiety or embarrassment.
At your first visit your condition will be assessed and any underlying medical problems will be excluded. Several treatments are available including botulinum toxin injections for underarm sweating.
Anti sweating injections are a highly effective treatment for underarm sweating. Patients with excess underarm sweating who have failed treatment antiperspirants such as Drichlor, are entitled to a Medicare rebate for botulinum toxin injections.
If you are deemed eligible for the medicare rebate by one of our accredited dermatologists, the current out of pocket fee is approx. $200 for the procedure when performed at Kew Dermatology.
