Hyperhidrosis is defined as excessive sweating abnormal to the body’s normal needs. At Onyx Aesthetic, we understand that excessive sweating can be debilitating. It can be either classified as primary or secondary hyperhidrosis.

Primary hyperhidrosis does not happen for any particular reason, but there is often an associated family history for people who experience hyperhidrosis. This condition can cause excessive sweating in the palms, feet, underarms, face, and scalp. Secondary hyperhidrosis is a result of underlying medical condition and the underlying problem/cause will need to be treated.

Anti-wrinkle injections have been found to stop localised sweating by blocking the neural signals which stimulate activity in the sweat glands in specific areas such as underarms. These injections are able to prevent localised sweating while the body continues normal moisture production elsewhere. Results last approximately 4 months. A thorough consultation with a Nurse is required to see if you are suitable for the treatment, but never fear – we registered nurses waiting for you.
