Everybody sweats, but for those who suffer from excessive sweating, summer can be a difficult and embarrassing time. Putting on coat after coat of antiperspirant deodorant and carrying it around in your back pocket has been the best thing you could do because wearing extra shirts in the summer to hide the sweat seemed to backfire, but today there is a better, simpler way to stop excessive sweating once and for all, not just hide the embarrassing stains.
Botox, when done wrong, can lead to too pouty lips and too tight faces, that’s what it’s often known for because of celebrities and movies that have portrayed it that way. But Botox can also be used for good- when done right it fills in the face beautifully, and gives an extra umph to your lips. It also can stop excessive sweating. I know, who knew?!
What is Botox, exactly?
Botox is a drug made from botulin; it’s actually a paralytic and is used in cosmetics to paralyze the muscles in the face and to fill out wrinkles, but it’s been used for medical purposes, too, such as to help with writers’ cramp, overactive bladders, migraines and excessive sweating.
How Can Botox Help with My Sweating?
Botox works best to resolve sweating in the underarm area; the botox is injected in to the armpits and blocks the ducts that create sweat. Sweat does not get backed up or redirected, it simply doesn’t get produced. It is a minimally invasive procedure that literally stops the sweating and although it is temporary, many times we see reduced sweating for 9 months! It will see you through the summer for sure! Don’t be afraid to go out and show yourself off to the world, stop hypohidrosis and step in to the sun!
