6 Unexpected Uses for Botox


Do you find yourself sweating with no relief from extra-strength antiperspirant? Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for overactive sweat glands — affecting more than 200 million people worldwide. While there are multiple ways to treat this condition, one of the most effective remedies is the use of Botox on the area that produces excess sweat. By injecting the toxin into the affected area, the chemical that starts the process of sweating is temporarily blocked. This process has been proven to reduce sweating by up to 87 percent. If you have hyperhidrosis, talk to your pharmacist and doctor about how Botox may help.
