A popular treatment for excessive armpit sweating is Botox®
Do you suffer from excessive sweating and deodorant doesn’t work for you? Are you left with embarrassing sweat marks? There is an answer – Botox!
Excessive sweating, otherwise known as hyperhidrosis is not an uncommon problem. It is a condition which is characterized by an abnormal increase in sweating. While the cause of this is not known, nervousness or excitement can exacerbate the problem for many sufferers.
There is a solution! Botox is not just for beautifying the face ( here ). When Botox is injected into your armpits (officially your ‘axilla’), this blocks the nerve signals that control the sweat glands. The effects will last for about 6- 9 months in most people. Studies have suggested that some patients are still happy after 16 months and on average, sweating is reduced by 83.5%. Sweating will slowly increase again and the treatment will need to be repeated. Botox tends to normalize sweating and not abolish it completely.
The procedure itself takes approximately 15 minutes with minimal discomfort. You are able to go straight back to work afterwards and people have said that it is life changing. The effects of the procedure start after a few days.
