The Key to a Sweat-Free Summer

With temperatures soaring above 90 degrees, it doesn’t take more than a short walk outside to experience the effects of the heatwave that’s currently sweeping the nation. And the most noticeable side effect of sweltering summer weather—aside from steaming sidewalks and wilting plants, of course—is sweat. While perspiration is our body’s natural way of regulating temperature, hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, can be uncomfortable and even embarrassing for those who experience it in excess. Luckily, sweat doesn’t have to spell disaster for your summer plans. Botox, the injectable that does wonders for woes like wrinkles and migraines, can also reduce hyperhidrosis—so you can get your glow on without feeling like you just stepped out of a sauna. Here, Jordan Jacobs walks us through her solution for a sweat-free summer.


Botox Basics


Botox is a neuromodulator, which means it disrupts communication between nerves and their receptors. When Botox is used for wrinkle prevention, it blocks the communication to the muscles in the face that cause forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines. When used to prevent hyperhidrosis, Botox works by disrupting the communication between nerves and sweat glands. The most common places to inject Botox to help with hyperhidrosis are the underarms, hands, feet, back, face, and chest. One treatment can last up to six months, compared to traditional antiperspirants that last for less than a day, plus it reduces irritation and acne associated with excessive sweating.


No Sweat: A Client Shares His Story


For Jordan’s client, Omar Sheikh, treating hyperhidrosis with Botox was a game-changer. “I used to feel extremely embarrassed because I was constantly drenched in sweat, not just in the summertime, but whenever I ate spicy food,” Sheikh explains. “I used to carry around towels and baby wipes with me because it was so out of control.” After years of frustration with his everyday antiperspirant, Sheikh decided to treat his excessive sweating with Botox on his face, scalp, armpits, chest, and back. “I read about the positive effects of Botox for hyperhidrosis in a medical journal and spoke to my dermatologist about options,” says Sheikh. “When I found out it was FDA-approved, I decided to see the results for myself.” Though he was new to injectables and initially nervous about the process, Sheikh says the experience was remarkably simple and pain-free. “Jordan’s expert knowledge and precision made me feel extremely comfortable throughout the process. The needle she used was so fine that I could barely feel it.” Sheikh saw dramatic results within two weeks and says he’ll never look back. “My sweating has improved immensely—it is totally worth the investment. I can finally go about my day without having to shower multiple times. I love the results I’ve achieved and will continue to see Jordan every 3-6 months for my Botox treatments.”
