Helping block out the chemicals that signal perspiration
With this hyperhidrosis treatment, a series of tiny injections are made in the targeted area. The injected substance enters the specific glands in the underarms responsible for excessive sweating. Once there, it blocks the release of a chemical that signals the perspiration. The injections takes up to 40 minutes and is a walk in-walk out procedure.
Excessive sweating can be embarrassing and problematic, but the product is approved by the TGA to treat the symptoms of severe underarm sweating when other treatments haven’t worked.
It works like this: the product is injected into the affected areas, most commonly the underarms, to block the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands.
You should notice results within 4 weeks. In clinical studies, 95% of patients with hyperhidrosis experienced an improvement in their excessive sweating by an average of 83%.
Recovery is instant and patients can resume routine activities on the same day as the procedure. Local anaesthetic cream is often used to make the procedure painless.
One 10-15 minute treatment can last up to 1 year. It is advised to avoid activities that can increase sweating for up to 24 hours.
The initial consultation fee is refunded if you proceed with the treatment. Prices start from roughly $1,000 for the treatment.
Your initial Excessive Sweating/Hyperhidrosis consultation and subsequent procedure can be undertaken at one of our cosmetic clinics in Sydney, Canberra, Adelaide or the Gold Coast.

of collective experience and the latest medical equipment
Hyperhidrosis, or Excessive Sweating, is a condition that affects millions of people around the world. Uncontrolled sweating can occur in various parts of the body including the face, hands, feet or underarms. Although high temperatures or stress can increase perspiration, they don’t cause hyperhidrosis. Instead, hyperhidrosis may be an inherited trait that stops the body from properly regulating its temperature. Until now, excessive sweating has been difficult to control. At Cosmos Aesthetics we offer a non-surgical treatment for hyperhidrosis that delivers long-lasting improvements.
