Many of the medical and cosmetic services provided by the expert Dermatologists at SouthDerm are affordable as they are rebated by Medicare and/or private health insurance companies.
SouthDerm is a nationally accredited and recognised provider and many of our treatments are rebated by Medicare. SouthDerm is also licensed by the NSW Health Department, which means that patients with private health insurance can claim a rebate for approved surgical procedures. To access our rebates, you will also need to have an up to date referral signed by your GP.
In order to find out what your out of pocket expenses will be, speak with our friendly team or your Dermatologist at your next consultation.
Medicare is helping people with severe underarm sweating. Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) of the armpits can be treated with the same injections that are used to relax facial muscles for wrinkle removal. If the prescription deodorant Driclor does not work or you can’t tolerate it, a Medicare rebate may be available for these injections when the procedure is carried out by a Medicare-approved specialist dermatologist.
SouthDerm specialists Dr Robert Rosen, Dr Howard Studniberg and Dr Eleni Yiasemides have been approved to treat patients with severe underarm sweating under this special rebate scheme. This means you will only pay a small part of the costs for the injection treatment. If you qualify, you can receive up to 3 treatments per year. Each treatment may last for 3–12 months.
