How to stop sweaty underarms– FAST

Performed by Dr Davin Lim, this treatment is covered under Medicare so you can be assured that this treatment WORKS. For less than $2 a day you can be sweat free. This means you can wear colours and your wardrobe will not consist of black clothing.  You will have new-found confidence. No longer do you need to worry about sweat patches during a presentation, or every worry what someone thinks when you raise your arms up.


What does the treatment involve?

Injections to the underarms – this takes less than 90 seconds to perform and feels like tiny ant bites. These injections block the sweat gland from producing sweat. This anti-sweat treatment is effective in 97% of cases with a safety record spanning nearly 3 decades. The best part about it – not only does it work but it works FAST, you can go from drenching sweat to no sweat in less than 5 days!

How do I qualify for this anti sweat treatment?

Firstly you must suffer from significant sweating. If you are reading this you have already qualified. Medicare defines significant sweating as having an impact on your life. If excessive underarm sweating stops you wearing certain clothes, or affects your confidence, it is significant.

Secondly you must have at least trialled a product called Driclor. I do not endorse Driclor but these are the rules set by Medicare. If you fail Driclor, than you qualify for this treatment.

Thirdly you must have a referral from a GP or nurse practitioner- that is the easy bit. As Dr Davin Lim is a Specialist Dermatologist a referral is needed. Reception on 07 3871 34 37 can guide you, or arrange a referral to see Dr Lim.

Why choose Dr Davin Lim over other doctors to perform ‘How to stop underarm sweating – FAST’ injections?

Reputation, experience and passion.  3 things that I emphasise, I have a reputation to treat all forms of sweating, and to get the job done no matter how hard the case. Experience- I perform this procedure to up to half a dozen patients on a daily basis, and have been nominated by the prestigious Medicare Audit Award for the highest provider of this service in Australia since it was introduced as a treatment for sweaty armpits, or axillary hyperhidrosis.

If there is one ‘weird’ passion I have is to get sweaty patients back on track. Sounds odd, but this treatment is life changing. I understand that this treatment is life changing, and the impact of excessive underarm sweating is underestimated by the majority of GP’s. That is why I created  Every single page of that website was written by myself. Additionally I authored the guidelines for excessive underarm sweating for the College of Dermatologist. To me failure is never an option.


*Based upon costs and the average duration of treatments as per medically published studies. Results may vary from costing less than 50 cents daily to $4 daily depending on sweat gland sensitivity.
** Based upon Medicare Audits for the treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis using sweat blocking injections.
