Sweating armpits will stop with Maxim
How Maxim works better than Botox for Sweating Armpits
Botox was relatively unheard of until about 2004 and then it became associated with Hollywood stars who used it to hide their wrinkles. In fact, many over did it, and stiff faces which showed little expression were a sure sign that the botox injections had gone wrong. However, Botox can also be used as a non cosmetic solution for the treatment of excessive perspiration in cases where sweating armpits are impacting on a person's self esteem.
So what exactly is Botox?
Made in California by a company called Allergan, Botox is the brand name for a product called 'botulinum toxin'. When injected into into the skin, Botox paralyzes the nerves and muscles temporarily in that area.
How does Botox work to prevent sweating armpits?
Based on his knowledge of your condition, the doctor will select a number of injection points where he will insert the Botox evenly across the underarm area. The injections are made just below the surface of the skin where the sweat glands reside. The Botox works by blocking the signals which send messages via the sympathetic nervous system to the sweat glands instructing them to start producing sweat.
How much does it cost?
Botox injections are not cheap and can cost between $500-1000 and generally speaking the treatment tends not to be covered by insurance. Bearing in mind that you would probably need a couple of treatments per year, then around $2,000 will keep you free from excessive sweating, which for many people may not seem a high price in order not to sweat, not to smell and not to have to keep changing their clothes during the course of a day.
Is Botox just used on the armpits?
Botox is more commonly used on the armpits to prevent armpit sweat but it has been used for sweaty feet and palms too, although this is a far more painful process.
If you've just about reached the end of your tether and sweating armpits and an unpleasant odor are starting to alienate you from friends, family and work colleagues, then pay your doctor a visit to discuss whether Botox could be suitable for you.
Almost all patients report a significant improvement within two weeks and a treatment can last for up to 6 months. Botox is not a permanent cure and won't stop sweating for good, and if you decide not to have any more treatment, then gradually you sweating will return to how it was before treatment.
