Hyperhidrosis, commonly referred to as excessive sweating, is a medical condition characterised by abnormally high and uncontrollable levels of perspiration. This condition goes beyond the body's natural cooling mechanism and can lead to significant discomfort and embarrassment for those who suffer from it.

Hyperhidrosis can affect various parts of the body, including the palms, feet, underarms, and even the face. It can occur in both isolated episodes, triggered by stress or nervousness, or as a chronic and persistent issue. People with hyperhidrosis often find that their sweat production is far greater than what is necessary for temperature regulation, and it can occur even in cool or comfortable environments.


Hyperhidrosis can have a profound impact on a person's quality of life. Social and professional situations may become challenging, as people with this condition may avoid handshakes, wear dark clothing to conceal sweat stains, or limit their physical activities to prevent excessive sweating.

  • Palms of hands

Treatment Modalities

While these treatments for hyperhidrosis are generally safe and well-tolerated, it's essential to consult with a qualified healthcare provider who has experience in administering this treatment. We can provide personalised guidance and address any questions or concerns related to the procedure.

Anti-wrinkle is injected superficially to the area of concern. Anti-wrinkle’s mechanism of action on hyperhidrosis involves its ability to block the release of a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine from nerve endings. This inhibition of acetylcholine release disrupts the communication between nerves and sweat glands, leading to a reduction in sweat production. The effects of botulinum toxin are not permanent. Over time, the nerve endings gradually regenerate, and the effects of the anti-wrinkle wear off. Typically, the reduction in sweat production lasts for about 4 to 6 months, after which the treatment may need to be repeated to maintain the desired level of relief from hyperhidrosis.

Morpheus8 is a fractional RF micro-needling device with programmable penetration depth and energy delivery. The applicator provides electrocoagulation and homeostasis. The needles penetrate into the various levels of the dermis and subcutis, where sweat glands are localised, and the area is coagulated. This can result irreversible thermolysis of the gland structure, meaning that the results have the potential to be permanent. The ability to treat multiple layers of subdermal tissue, provides an opportunity to address not only the superficial eccrine glands, responsible for sweating, but also the deep apocrine glands, responsible for odour.

General Questions

How many treatments are required?

  • History of skin cancer or pre-cancerous lesions in the treatment area
  • Use of blood-thinning medications
  • History of autoimmune or connective tissue disease
  • Use of certain medications that may affect wound healing or collagen production

Please note that this is not an exhaustive list, and it is important to consult one of our experienced staff members to determine if treatment is appropriate for you.

How long does it take to see results?
Botulinum toxin can take up to 4 weeks to start seeing the result of the treatment.
Morpheus8 can start to be effective within the 4 weeks after treatment, but optimal results are seen approximately a month after a treatment course (number of sessions required are individual)
How long does the treatment take to complete?
Treatment with botulinum toxin will take approximately 35-40 minutes for a consultation and treatment of the area.
Morpheus8 treatment can take approximately up to 60 minutes with a consultation and appropriate numbing of the area.

Morpheus8 for hyperhidrosis can be permanent in the area, but each individual response to treatment can vary.

Downtime for injections is very minimal. Patients can experience a little redness in the area, and some blebs under the skin which will go away the day of treatment.
Morpheus8 typically has minimal downtime but can last up to 3-5 days. You can expect redness, swelling, itching and pinpoint marks on the skin. Please keep in mind that downtime will also depend on the intensity and strength of the treatment and depth of the needles.
What is the aftercare?
Aftercare for both methods of treatment include:
  • Not wearing deodorant or tight clothing for 24 hours
