Do you sweat excessively in your armpit area? Do you restrict what type of clothes you wear because of your sweating? Are you aware of body odor? Excessive sweating in the armpit area is a condition called hyperhydrosis. When people have excessive sweating, even antiperspirant may not work to elevate their concern. What is an effective sweating stopping alternative?
Believe it or not, Botox. Botox has been a well accepted treatment for hyperhydrosis and can significantly improve excessive sweating in the armpits. Botox has been a well known treatment for cosmetic purposes to improve wrinkles. How does Botox work to improve sweating?
The neuromodulator, Botox, stops the nerves from firing by blocking the uptake of acetylcholine which is one of the neurotransmitters that tells muscles to contract, explains Loraine Savarese, the injection specialist at Charmed Medispa. When you use Botox on the face, you weaken the muscle and then you get significantly reduced wrinkles and lines. However, when you use Botox on the armpit, Botox acts on the glands that secrets sweat and can significantly diminish sweating. Don’t worry, you will still sweat in other areas to regulate your body temperature. Botox results for excessive sweating can last 9-12 months on average.
