Muscle relaxants can help minimise excessive sweating and the embarrassment that comes with it
Excessive sweating is a condition that affects many people. If you find yourself changing your shirt multiple times a day or avoiding hot days or sweaty situations because of your fear of sweating then you may benefit from hyperhidrosis treatment with Dr Anh in Perth.
Sweating is often caused by an overactive sweat gland which can cause a lot of embarrassment in public situations. The condition can also be caused by medication, anxiety, thyroid disease, infections and diabetes. If you suffer from an underlying condition that is causing your hyperhidrosis then you may not be an ideal candidate for treatment. The best thing to do to find out is contact Dr Anh or your GP who has experience treating you and any condition that you may have.
Treatment options for excessive sweating
Although surgery can treat excess sweating Dr Anh recommends muscle relaxants first as these can significantly reduce symptoms in a much less invasive way. During this treatment option a muscle relaxant will be precisely injected into the sweat gland to ‘numb’ its reaction which causes excessive sweat.
Do you sweat too much?
Ask yourself these questions to determine if you sweat too much.
Would you say you sweat every day all day?
Do you avoid activities because of your sweating condition?
Would you say sweating affects your life significantly?
If you have answered yes to the above questions then you may benefit from hyperhidrosis treatment in Perth with Dr Anh.
Your hyperhidrosis consultation
Dr Anh recommends visiting her Perth cosmetic clinic and plastic surgery for your initial hyperhidrosis consultation. She will spend up to 45 minutes discussing your condition, the results you want to achieve and the realistic results you can achieve.
Muscle relaxants are no more painful than normal needles. You may also be administered a topical numbing cream that will reduce any sensation that you feel during the procedure.
All patients are able to try topical solutions for hyperhidrosis, however many of our patients have experienced superior benefits of muscle relaxant treatment. Severe sweating injection treatment also requires one treatment every three or more months, which can simplify treatment rather than applying topical cream daily.
