  • What is Excessive Sweating / Hyperhidrosis?
    • Hyperhidrosis, or Excessive Sweating, is considered sweating beyond the bodies physiological need for regulating body temperature. It is generally an inherited condition and commonly affects the hands, feet, armpits and face. It is a condition that affects millions of people around the world; and although high temperatures or stress can increase perspiration, they don’t cause hyperhidrosis.

      It is also important to note that excessive sweating may also be a warning sign of other conditions such as diabetes, thyroid problems, infections or even menopause.

      Until now, excessive sweating has been difficult to control.

      At Cosmos Clinic, we offer a non-surgical treatment for hyperhidrosis that delivers long-lasting improvements. It is ultimately a non-invasive procedure that mimics the results of an Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy, which is quite invasive.

  • The Procedure. What does it involve?
    • 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.


  • What areas can be treated with Anti Sweating Injections?
    • Anti Sweating Injections are used to treat localised areas of sweating. They work the best for underarm sweating and can be very effective for sweating of the palms, soles and scalp.

      Anti Sweating Injections CANNOT be used to treat generalised sweating i.e. sweating over the whole body (e.g. back, legs) or on very large areas

  • Will I experience any pain?
    • Anti sweating injections provide minimal discomfort. For more information, read here

  • What can I expect after the procedure?
    • There is little to no downtime with this procedure. You can bathe, shower, drive or go back to work immediately afterward. For more information, read here

  • Results. What and when can I expect them?
    • Patients treated with Anti Sweating Injections notice a remarkable improvement in their symptoms long-term. In clinical studies, 95% of patients with severe cases of hyperhidrosis  experienced the benefits of the treatment after 1 week, with sweating reducing by an average of 83%.

      After the first treatment, the effects of Anti Sweating Injections last an average of 8 months and can last as long as a year and a half. For nearly 40% of patients, Anti Sweating Injections reduce sweating for more than one year. The amount of time Anti Sweating Injections remain effective may vary. When your symptoms return, it would be time for another Anti Sweating Injection treatment.

  • Are there any risks of complications?
    • Anti Sweating Injections are considered to be a very safe procedure with a very low chance of side effects. They have been used to treat a range of medical conditions including eye muscle spasms and cerebral palsy for more than 15 years.
