It is best known as a wrinkle treatment, but Botox is also an effective cure for excessive sweating.
Axillary hiperhidrosis is a medical condition whereby people sweat up to four times more than average in order to control their body temperature.
It is thought to affect around 1% of people, who are plagued by embarrassing underarm sweat as well as sweaty hands and feet.
The condition can cause social embarrassment and sufferers report that it affects their daily lives. Deodorants and antiperspirants will not alleviate the problem.
Botox injections, however, have been shown to work, with most patients reporting around a 75% decrease in sweating.
The treatment works by blocking signals between the nervous system and sweat glands. When body temperature rises, the nervous system tells the sweat glands to activate to cool the body. So, blocking the message reduces sweat.
It is not just the underarms that can be treated, but also palms, feet and even face and head. Watch the video below on treating excessive head sweating with Botox.
