Almost everyone has heard about derma fillers by now but most people recognize it for its abilities to make wrinkles and fine lines disappear. But did you know there is actually the lesser known use for these injections that has been approved by the FDA?
Derma filler is a miracle drug in other ways too-it can actually decrease sweating if injected in the armpits! That’s right, for the first time there is actually something you can do about those overactive sweat glands that show embarrassing wet spots and stain your shirts.
Known as axillary hyperhidrosis, more than a million Americans suffer from this embarrassing condition. In fact, those with axillary hyperhidrosis sweat up to four times as much as those without the condition! If you’re one of the many Americans suffering from overactive sweating, you probably have tried everything prescription deodorants, creams, crazy devices you can stick inside your shirt to try to absorb the sweat.
As someone who has this sweating disorder, trust me I have tried every trick in the book and know that none of them work. I know first-hand how embarrassing Derma Prime Plus it is to have to always be self-conscious about how much you are sweating. It seems like it is especially bad in the summer when I wish I could be wearing cute tank tops and flirty dresses without having to think about ruining them with sweat stains.
Thank goodness, I recently read about a three-year study on the effect of derma fillers to decrease sweating in armpits. The study found that 82% of the participants had a 75% reduction in sweating four weeks after the treatment.
The first step is just to find a qualified dermatologist, which can be done pretty easily by researching online. Next, meet with your physician for a consultation to determine if the treatment is right for you and to ask him or her any questions you may have. Then, during the procedure, the derma filler is injected about 15 times into the underarm region with a fine needle. The whole procedure takes around 20 minutes or less.
Although the results are not permanent, they do last an average of 201 days, which will definitely get you through the summer and all the way until next spring before you will have to do it again. Perhaps most surprising is that most insurance companies cover the cost of the treatment for excessive underarm sweating!
