Botox for Sweaty Armpits and palms
An FDA approved indication for treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis [sweaty underarms] can help people have better quality of life. Botox works by blocking the secretion of the chemical that activates sweat glands. During the procedure, doctors (typically dermatologists) inject around 50 units of Botox into each armpit. The more units injected, the longer the drying effects tend to last. Effects usually last for 5-6 months.
Botox to Treat Migraines
Another FDA approved indication of Botox is to treat chronic migraine headaches in adults.
Botox to treat chronic migraines is given at intervals of about 12 weeks as multiple injections around the head and neck.
How does Botox work for Migraines?
Botox works by blocking the release of certain brain chemicals including acetylcholine and by blocking the movement of certain nerves and muscles. It is not completely known how Botox reduces headache pain and stiffness. A potential reason might be that Botox blocks nerves that send pain messages to the brain and relaxes muscles so they are less sensitive to pain.
