Botox Injections

Botox is used medically to treat certain muscular conditions, and cosmetically to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles. It is made from a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.

Botulinum toxin (known as Botox) is a drug that temporarily paralyzes muscles to treat certain muscle conditions, reduce wrinkles or stop sweat.

Botox has become a widely recognized treatment for axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating), gaining the FDA’s stamp of approval in 2004. To treat severe underarm sweating, Botox works by blocking the secretion of the chemical that activates sweat glands.

 

During the procedure, doctors inject around 50 units of Botox into each armpit.
