Botox Can Prevent Those Embarrassing Underarm Stains

Botox is pretty common in the world of cosmetic beauty treatments these days. Perhaps you or someone that you know have used it as a temporary cure for wrinkles and are thrilled with the results. Or maybe you would prefer to let your face age gracefully. Either way, most everyone has an opinion about the pros and cons of Botox. But did you know that Botox can be a safe and effective way to treat sweating?

Underarm Botox is FDA-approved for excessive armpit sweating. We’ve probably all had, or at least imagined, the dreaded embarrassment of overactive armpits in public. Let’s face it, pit stains are a horror we all want to avoid. It’s uncomfortable and humiliating for both men and women. But with underarm Botox you can minimize and block out the body’s sweat glands, anywhere from six months to one year.

Some people try Botox for sweating for a special event or on their wedding day, but for 33 percent of the population, it’s about keeping dry EVERY day of your life. Excessive sweating is a medical condition called hyperhidrosis, and can affect the underarms, hands, feet, groin, and face. All that sweating can ruin your clothes, create unpleasant odors and be uncomfortable.

How does Botox prevent sweating? Just like with treating wrinkles, using a fine-tip needle, underarm Botox is injected directly into the skin at the trouble spot. A topical anesthetic is usually applied first to prevent discomfort. Botox works by preventing the release of a chemical that signals the sweat glands to activate. For most, the results can last up to a year. After treatment it will take several days to a week for the result to be apparent.

So if antiperspirants aren’t able to stop the floodgates, contact DermaBlue about getting Botox injections to prevent sweating.
