Summer is off to a hot start and it has only just begun. Mid-July, we are already seeing record breaking temperatures on the Heat Index across the U.S. When the climate changes, so does our bodies’ physical reactions.
With all this heat and humidity, unwanted sweating can become quite frustrating, especially for those who have an on-the-go lifestyle. Perspiration causes uncitely sweat spots on a work shirt that can be quite embarrassing for many working professionals, active exercisers and social event goers during the summertime. When anti-perspirants are not enough, we recommend Botox® Injections (OnabotulinumtoxinA) to prevent heavy sweating in the underarms, groin and other areas. Botox can be used for light sweaters or excessive sweaters who suffer from hyperhidrosis, reducing sweating by up to 87% (2018, International Hyperhidrosis Society). Effects for Botox sweat treatments can last 6 months or more. Botox injections can stop profuse sweating from the face, nose, scalp, and neck. As well, Botox can treat sweaty palms and feet, lower back sweat,
How does Botox stop sweating? Botox is carefully administered via injection to the skin in sweat-prone areas. The Botox treatment acts a blocker to the neurotransmitter that causes sweat glands to activate. The effect is sweat reduction, which can be significant for overly active sweat glands. When administering Botox, typically used for treating facial wrinkles, other considerations must be made such as the amount of Botox to use for the specific areas. As well, for Botox face injections, there should be proper cosmetic understanding of the effects on facial appearance.
Where can Botox be used to reduce sweat? Individuals who suffer from excessive sweating have turned to Botox to treat the following areas:
- Palms of the hand (for palmar hyperhidrosis)
- The soles of the feet
- Face (cheeks, nose, upper lip)
- Scalp and head
- Beneath the breasts, pectorals
- Groin Area
- Lower back
