Whether you’re literally sweating because you’re sitting too close to the fire or you’re figuratively sweating it because your holiday to-do list is growing by the minute, Dr. Fiona Wright has you covered. Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating is a condition that affects 20% of people which means that when it comes to sweating it, you’re certainly not alone. Luckily, with Botox treatments, (yes, you heard that right) Dr. Fiona Wright can help to temporarily alleviate this excessive sweating. Let’s take a closer look at how Botox can help you.
Botox is known as a miracle worker for most people. By temporarily softening fine lines and wrinkles, Botox may as well be the modern day fountain of youth. However, Botox can also be used for much more than cosmetic purposes.
Once Botox is injected into the underarms, it works by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that help stimulate the sweat glands which results in less sweating.
Is that Bad for You?
Believe it or not, you sweat for a reason— it’s not just to make you look embarrassed. Sweating is how your body gets rid of toxins, and it also helps your body regulate its temperature. So, does stopping the sweat glands under your arms put you at a health risk? No, this is not a concern. Your body is composed of millions of sweat glands which means that your body will be able to excrete sweat elsewhere.
Does It Work?
The short answer to this is, yes, it does work. However, just like with cosmetic Botox injections, Botox for hyperhidrosis is temporary which means that you will have to have them done every so often.
Don’t sweat the small stuff or through your shirt during the holiday season. With the help of Dr. Fiona Wright and Botox, we can give you the temporary relief from sweating that you’ve been hoping for. Schedule your Botox consultation at our Plano office today!
