Botox® for Excessive Sweating
During clinical trials for Botox®, researchers found that those participants with hyperhidrosis – otherwise known as excessive sweating – reported much fewer instances of sweating.
As a result, Botox® is now an FDA-approved solution for patients with excessive underarm sweating!
Botox® works by blocking overactive sweat glands that can no longer properly regulate the body’s temperature. That means patients can see an almost immediate reduction in excessive sweating. These results can last for several months before another treatment is needed.
Botox® for Migraines
It’s not just hyperhidrosis that was found to be reduced by Botox® – participants in Botox® clinical trials reported a significant reduction in headaches as well.
As a result of these findings, Botox® has recently been introduced as a reliable – and FDA-approved – solution for people who suffer from chronic migraines. Typically, your GP or doctor will prescribe regular Botox® injections to help with migraine symptoms.
Other medical uses include treating eyelid spasms, problems with vocal cords, contracted muscles and bladder spasms. It’s safety profile in these various conditions over decades explain why the cosmetic use of this amazing medication is extremely low risk.
Speak to your primary care M.D. or neurologist (for migraines) about whether medical treatment with Botox® is right for you.
