Chrissy Teigen Got Armpit Botox To Stop Sweating — Here’s How It Works
According to board-certified plastic surgeon Daniel Maman, M.D., of
740 Park Plastic Surgery, Botox works the same way for your armpits as it does for wrinkles. “It paralyzes the muscle wherever you’re injecting,” he says. “With armpits, the sweat glands are surrounded by muscle fibers, and when you sweat, the muscle fibers contract and milk the sweat glands. If you paralyze these muscle fibers, then you inevitably stop the sweating process.”
