Everyone is talking about it.
Athletes, celebrities, that cool kid in college…your Aunt Rhonda. Everyone is talking about getting Botox to get rid of sweating.
Before Botox, if you had a “glad problem” or could not stop sweating, your only hope was to cake on that anti-antiperspirant, or keep a big stash of extra tshirts in your car to change multiple times per day.
There are a number of reasons people sweat a lot:
- Sweating can be closed by blocked pours, or acne
- It can be caused by anxiety or nervousness
- It can be caused by poor diet
- The famous excuse “gland problems”
- Being overweight
- A diagnosis of Hyperhidrosis
The last one is the kicker, and the main reason why Botox is used to stop sweating.
Princeton Dermatology Associates released a FAQ on Botox for Hyperhidrosis. This is a comprehensive document that will explain everything you need to know about getting Botox for sweating.[box type=”download”] Download the FAQ on Botox for Hyperhidrosis [/box]
The main question most people ask about Botox for sweating is “How long does it take to kick in?” Like Botox for cosmetic reasons, it normally takes about 7-10 days.
Many people report that it helps in just a few days. Some people say it doesnt work for weeks, and a number of individuals need to go back for more treatments.
Also like other uses for Botox, it will require ongoing treatment.
The good thing about Botox for Hyperhidrosis is that you can actually get it covered by your insurance!
That’s right, just ask your doctor for more information.
