Proven solutions are now available to make excessive sweating under the armpits (axillary hyperhidrosis) history.
Axillary hyperhidrosis can be effectively and safely treated with Botulinum Toxin injections with up to 4-9 months of sweat-free time for most patients. This procedure has been around for over 15 years and Medicare now provides a rebate for the cost of treatment if the treatment is undertaken with a specially registered dermatologist. The founder of Chroma Dermatology, Dr. Rodrigues, was one of the first dermatologists in Australia formally trained and registered to perform this procedure in 2011.
If undertaken at Chroma Dermatology, your injections will be less than $300 out of pocket. A consultation will need to be booked to ensure there is no underlying cause for your sweating and to see if you qualify for the Medicare-subsidised treatment.
