Did you know that Botox is commonly used for excess sweating? Most of our Botox patients in San Diego come to our office for treatment of unwanted face wrinkles and creases. This is far and away the most popular use for Botox (as well as Dysport). But, Botox is also regularly used for treatment of excessive sweating that can involve the armpits – also referred to as the axilla in medical terminology. Many patients, for example, develop sweaty armpits during speeches or even in the course of a normal business meeting with colleagues. This is known as hyperhidrosis and can sometimes be quite embarrassing due to the staining that is commonly seen. Fortunately, there is an effective answer – and it is in the form of Botox injections that can be done in our San Diego office by board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. John Hilinski. No longer is Botox used to just treatment wrinkles and creases – it is also one of the best treatments for sweaty armpits! Call our office today to schedule your consult.
