Botox for Excessive Sweating
Treatment of excessive sweating with botulinum toxin is an effective, reliable, and most importantly safe way to get rid of excessive sweating. However, there are still some common myths about that, so the editorial team of The Fashiongton Post decided to help you dispel those today.
Myth # 1: Toxin is dangerous for the body
Botulinum toxin type A, which is a part of both dysport and botox, has been used for a long time to treat nervous and muscle pathologies, and since 1994 it has found its application in the treatment of excessive sweating of the armpits, feet, palms and other parts of the body too. Numerous studies by scientists confirm the fact that this procedure is completely safe for health.
Myth # 2: Botox is addictive
This is impossible, since botulinum toxin is completely eliminated from the body within 24 hours, so it doesn’t have a cumulative effect due to addiction.
Myth # 3: Clogged sweat glands
The action of the botulinum toxin type A is based not on the formation of “plugs” in the pores of the sweat glands, but on blocking the nervous stimulation of the sweat glands, so the pores are not clogged.
Myth # 4: Injections are very painful in this body area
The procedure is absolutely comfortable, since before the injection a special anesthetic cream is being applied, so it eliminates any discomfort.
Of course, in addition to the above methods, don’t forget about proper nutrition, which may need to be adjusted. After all, excessive consumption of fatty and spicy foods, carbonated and caffeine containing drinks can also cause increased sweating.
