Botox can help you not sweat excessively.
But, let us start at the beginning…
What is botox?
Botox or botulinum toxin is one of the most powerful poisons that exist. But do not be scared that this poison has come to help you.
It is a chemical substance that reduces the force in the contraction of the muscles. That is, it is able to relax the muscles that cause the unsightly deep wrinkles between brow, forehead and crow’s feet.
Although it is mainly used in the facial area to get to see us younger, botox has more and more applications, such as the one I am going to explain to you today.
Among its advantages are that it is a painless treatment, does not need recovery time or special care. Also, there are no problems exposing the skin to the sun, so you can do it at any time of the year.
If you want to wear botox, it is very important that you put yourself in the hands of a qualified medical professional.
How does botox help fight sweat?
Botox is increasingly used among athletes to combat hyperhidrosis, or what is the same, excessive sweating . Although the truth is that you do not have to be an athlete to benefit from the effects of botulinum toxin on sweat.
In Spain there are more than 300,000 people who suffer from hyperhidrosis and who could benefit from this effect.
The Botox is injected into the skin in small doses and acts by blocking nerve signals that regulate the sweat glands, reducing the amount of sweat. Its effect is temporary.
When we think of sweating, we usually associate it with the armpits, but it can also cause problems in the hands or feet. Botox is especially useful in athletes who use their hands. For example so that the tennis players do not escape the racket.
How long is the effect of botox to treat sweating?
The effect of botox on the sweat glands begins to notice progressively, approximately 10 days after its application has already made full effect.
Its effect lasts between 7 and 10 months.
Can everyone inject botox?
No, although it is a very safe and effective treatment, not everyone can use it.
People who are taking blood thinners have to be careful and consult their doctor before undergoing treatment.
Some people are allergic to this toxin, and of course they cannot use it.
Those who have received the tetanus vaccine may not notice its effect because it cancels it.
