Cosmetic fillers have emerged as a popular and effective treatment for excessive sweating in the underarm area, medically known as axillary hyperhidrosis.

Cosmetic fillers are neurotoxins that temporarily paralyses or weaken specific muscles or glands.

When used for treating hyperhidrosis, it blocks the nerves responsible for activating sweat glands in the underarms, thereby reducing sweating.

Here’s what you can expect during the treatment:

Consultation

Preparation- Once it’s determined that cosmetic fillers are an appropriate treatment option, the clinician will clean your underarm area and may apply a topical anaesthetic or use ice to numb the area, although this is not always necessary.

Treatment

Using a fine needle, the clinician will administer small amounts of cosmetic fillers into multiple sites in each underarm. The number of syringes required depends on the severity of your condition. The procedure is generally well-tolerated, with minimal discomfort.

Post-treatment

After the treatment, you can typically resume your daily activities immediately. However, it’s advised to avoid vigorous exercise, excessive heat, or massaging the treated area for at least 24 hours. Some redness, bruising, or swelling at the treatment sites is normal but should subside within a few days.

The effects of cosmetic fillers for excessive underarm sweating are not immediate. It may take a few days to a week for the full benefits to become noticeable. Once the cosmetic fillers start taking effect, you should experience a significant reduction in underarm sweating.

The duration of the effects varies from person to person but generally lasts between four to six months. As the effects wear off, you can opt for repeat treatments to maintain the results. Over time, some individuals find that they require fewer treatments as the sweat glands can become less active.

Cosmetic fillers for axillary hyperhidrosis are considered safe when performed by a trained healthcare professional. It’s important to discuss all potential risks and benefits with your clinician before undergoing cosmetic filler treatment for excessive underarm sweating. They can provide personalised advice and determine the best course of action based on your specific situation.
