Age 18

Sweaty armpits is not a good way to start O Week at university. Needless to say I looked like a Goth dressed in black. By the way, for all those who have no idea in regards to bad underarm sweating- that’s the colour of choice. During high school I tried the usual stuff like chemist deodorants and Driclor. Nothing worked. I gave up.  Then I gave injections a go when it was on Medicare.

I wasn’t going to spend over a grand, but Sweat Free Specialists provided treatments at a super price. I get 3-4 months out of each treatment. I know the average underarm sweater gets 6 months, but I can’t complain cause it works.

Specialist comment

Most patients will receive at least 5-6 months of underarm sweat relief with injections. Having said that, some patients only receive 2 months remission, whilst others have 9 months. I cannot determine the remission rate without the performing the procedure first. The success rate is in the order of 95%, and most patients will have a marked reduction in underarm sweating within the first two weeks of treatment. The recent Medicare and PBS listing has helped many student afford this simple, yet effective procedure.
