There’s no need to be embarrassed by sweating. Botox and other botulinum toxin products work by temporarily blocking the signals from nerves that activate the sweat gland. The injection does not work immediately – it takes up to two weeks to see results. However, the results can last for up to 4 months. This allows some patients to choose this therapy only for certain seasons of the year.

Did you know that water of any kind, including sweat, can permanently stain silk and some other fabrics? The stains may be immediate, but may also take weeks or months to reveal themselves. For other fabrics, such as rayon, water weakens the fibers, making it more likely to tear at the seam. If you are planning a wedding, or a special function, you may want to consider chemically blocking your axillary sweat glands for your big day. Not only will you look cool as a cucumber, you will protect the investment of your wedding dress for future generations.
