When you’re overheated, nervous, or under stress, it’s normal to excessive sweating. When your body temperature rises as a result of exercise, yoga, or other strenuous physical activity, your sweat glands are activated by the neurological system.
This is how your body cools down on its own. The nerves that signal the sweat glands are overactive in persons with hyperhidrosis. Sweat tends to produce more body order, thus the more you sweat, the more body order you’ll produce.
Excessive perspiration, obesity, diabetes, poor hygiene, even hyperthyroidism, and cystic fibrosis can all contribute to body disorders. Some people suffer from severe body odor, while others are completely free of it.
Botox shots are used to address a wide range of medical and aesthetic issues. Excessive sweating can be treated with Botox injections, which are a relatively new therapy option.
If you’ve tried prescription deodorants and your sweating hasn’t improved, you might be a candidate for botox. Botox has been approved by the FDA for people who have excessive sweating in their armpits.
How does it work?
Botox works by inhibiting the nerves that cause your epithelial tissue to activate. Your hyperactive nerves are effectively blocked when you receive Botox injections straight into the area of your body where you sweat the most.
You don’t sweat if your nerves can’t communicate with your sweat glands. To control sweat in the treatment location, Botox interrupts the neurotransmitter that tells the sweat glands to activate.
Botox can be used on parts of the body that are prone to excessive sweating, such as the hands, feet, back, chest, under the shoulders, groin, head, face, and face. Botox treatments for the hands and feet are less effective and have a higher risk of side effects.
In these places, the operation may be more uncomfortable. While you can return to work and normal activities right after your treatment, it’s best if you don’t lie down for four hours or work out for up to 24 hours. It takes two to seven days to stop sweating in the treated area, and up to two weeks to be completely dry.
Adverse effects and risks
Botox has been studied for its safety, and the majority of people tolerate it well.
The following are possible adverse effects.
- Experiencing pain or pain at the injection site
- Symptoms of the flu
- Eyelid droops (for facial injections)
- Tearing or dry eyes (for facial injections)
Serious Botox injection side effects are exceedingly rare, and they only occur when the Botox affects your complete body.
