Sweaty armpits are an extremely embarrassing condition. There’s nothing worse than being in a client meeting or presentation and having to deal with the under-arm sweat that is obviously showing through your shirt. It throws you off your game and slams your confidence to the ground.
If you’ve experienced this before, you’ve probably done everything you could do to prevent it from happening again, usually without success.
We talk to countless patients who seem to have tried every single antiperspirant and deodorant that’s on the market today, from all-natural brands to prescription strength brands; however nothing seems to work.
What does work is Botox. Yes, Botox is not just for wrinkles anymore!
To control excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), you’ve got to get to the root of the matter… get under the skin where the sweating starts.
The action of sweating is controlled by the body’s nervous system. When you are warm, anxious, or angry, your body’s nerves tell your sweat glands to start producing sweat. Botox stops that communication in its tracks, disrupting those signals and halting the production of sweat, resulting in dry under-arms and, best of all, dry shirts.
Injecting Botox in the under-arm area is completely safe, too. Because sweating is mediated at the local level, disrupting the production of sweat in one area is not going to have any effect on sweating in other areas. The body is still able to rid itself of sweat, just not through the most obvious or embarrassing places like the under-arms.
This procedure can be performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Pope in three different area common for hyperhidrosis: the hands, palms, and armpits. It can last twice as long as Botox injections in wrinkles—up to 6 to 9 months.
This procedure has a very high patient satisfaction rate. Call us to schedule your free consultation with Dr. Pope today and never worry about unwanted, excessive under-arm sweat again!
