Don’t Sweat It: How Botox Can Keep You High And Dry This Summer

Jul 26 2017

It’s hot this summer and only getting hotter. We all understand the pain of trying to hide embarrassing pit stains. Whether you’re at work, playing sports, or on a date, we want you to feel confident and beautiful. Did you know that you can stop those pit stains entirely? At Qwella Medical Spa we offer Botox for your armpits to stop that excessive sweating! You might be thinking that Botox is just for smoothing out wrinkles, right? We’re here to tell you that Botox has a few other options which can benefit you immensely.

What is it?

Botox injections work by weakening or paralyzing certain muscles or by blocking certain nerves. The process of injecting Botox in the armpits blocks the nerves from reaching the sweat glands — decreasing the chemical reaction between them. Some of the other uses for Botox include:

  • Treat muscular disorders
  • Treat excessive migraines
  • Treat bladder and bowel disorders
  • Treat neurological disorders
  • Treat Blepharospasm
  • Treat wrinkles and fine lines

The procedure:

When you come in for Botox, we will clean your armpits with alcohol, mark on your skin where we will be making the injections, and then inject the Botox in those areas. The doctor will inject the Botox into about 20-25 spots. The entire procedure takes less than an hour, and should start taking effect a few days later. Qwella specializes in little to no recovery time depending on your treatment, so soon after you will be able to shave, wax, and wear deodorant if needed.

A typical injection of Botox in the armpits can last from 4 to 6 months, and will stop armpit sweating entirely. Do you sweat excessively? Maybe you would just like a break from all those yellow pit stains. We recommend Botox for many of our clients, so give us a call at (801)-571-7710 if you are interested in getting a free consultation!
