Armpit Botox Injection

Botox injection proves its great efficacy in getting rid of excessive sweating by injecting botox into the armpit area or other body areas with excessive sweating. Botox weakens the sweat-producing glands, reducing the sweat secretion by up to 87%.

Botox is a type of toxin. It is a protein substance secreted by a bacterium called Clostridium Botulinum. When Botox is injected under the skin, it secretes a chemical substance that affects the impulses of the nerves that are responsible for sweat and weakens them to stop the secretion of excess sweat. It is authorized by the US Food and Drug Administration.
