FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What Is Hyperhidrosis Exactly?
Which Areas Of The Body Can Be Affected By Hyperhidrosis:
Constant or excessive sweating of the underarms can lead to some sufferers resorting to showering many times during the day in an attempt to avoid embarrassing body odour and visible wet patches. These constant under-arm wet patches often result in people avoiding social situations and continually changing their clothes.
Facial hyperhidrosis involves heat surges, that are uncontrollable, to the face. This daily face sweating may get worse when attention is drawn to the problem. Understandably, face sweating can really reduce a sufferers’ confidence and make them avoid social events.

Do Hyperhidrosis Treatments Hurt?
What Happens Before, During And After Treatment?
At About Face Brisbane you will have an initial consultation with Dr Colin Campey who will discuss your condition and advise you of the right treatment plan for your needs. You have the option to book a treatment at a later date or proceed with the procedure at the time of your consultation.
Before the treatment begins Dr Campey will clean the area to be treated with alcohol wipes. A numbing cream can be applied if desired or often clients choose to have ice applied just before the injections.
During Hyperhidrosis treatment:
A fine needle will be used to inject the Botulinum into the underarm. 12 to 18 tiny injections will be carried out under each arm. This process takes 60 to 90 seconds for each armpit and the sensation feels like tiny pinpricks which are very tolerable.
The same treatment can be performed by Dr Campey for the hands, feet, and face.
Following Hyperhidrosis treatment:
Once the procedure is finished you can continue with your daily activities as you won’t need any downtime or experience any major pain. On rare occasions, a small number of patients may experience mild swelling, bumps, mild bruising, or redness but these are mild and do not last longer than one week.
Are There Any Side Effects Following Hyperhidrosis Treatment?
There are very few side effects after Hyperhidrosis treatment and all are mild and temporary. The main ones are:
- tenderness, pain, and bruising at the injection site which can be sore for 2-3 days
- a slight headache which can be easily managed by taking ibuprofen or paracetamol.
As will all medications, the chance that some people will suffer more persistent side effects does exist, but this occurs very rarely. These are:
- nausea and flu-like symptoms
- sore or weak muscles near the injection site due to the Botulinum Type A spreading out from the target site and affecting a nearby nerve
- increased sweating in another part of the body.
