Everyone has had that crystallizing, and quite embarrassing, moment when they feel that familiar dampness under their arms. Suddenly, easy waving becomes a difficult task as they work to avoid showing off their sweat stains.
For some people, the suffering that comes along with excessive perspiration goes even deeper than a few sweat stains. For some, sweat is a medical problem that cannot be handles with something so simple as deodorant.
There are actually many reasons why people sweat, and often, these reasons set off the unsightly perspiration at just the wrong time. Of course, when our bodies get hot, the sweat mechanism kicks in to try to help cool us off.
Many people sweat when they become nervous or frightened, making for real inconvenience for those who have to be on stage or speak in front of large groups. Then, there are the people who actually suffer from the medical condition, Hyperhidrosis.
With this type of condition, people can suddenly and unpredictably start sweating tremendously. This type of condition can be frustrating and embarrassing, especially since it can happen at any moment. For these people, standard deodorant products is not the answer.
One option that is gaining popularity is Botox. Well known for several years now as an injection to smooth wrinkles in the face, the injection has been found useful for quelling sweat. The injection actually stops the nerves that control the sweat glands in a person’s underarms.
The injection can be given directly into each underarm. In just a couple of days, a person will be able to enjoy the effects of the injection. For people who deal with the problems of Hyperhidrosis, Botox injections can be an excellent help.
The positives of choosing Botox include the obvious, a severe decrease or elimination in underarm sweat. In addition, the person will be eliminating the odor that comes along with sweat. Nothing is more embarrassing that the telltale combination of sweat stains on a nice shirt and the noxious odor of excessive perspiration.
Another positive to choosing Botox is that it eliminates the need for daily deodorant use that may or may not affect the problem in the first place.
The downside to choosing this perspiration control method is that it is not permanent. The effects of Botox can last anywhere from three months to one year, depending on each individual. At most, a person may need new injections four times a year.
If you are considering Botox for your perspiration problems, make sure to discuss the plusses and minuses with your doctor before making your final decision.
