Botox — that much-loved and much-maligned injectable filler. While most people know that it makes your fine lines disappear, Botox is also FDA-approved to treat other health conditions, including hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating. National treasure Chrissy Teigen just got Botox injected into her armpits to curb her active sweat glads — and she filmed the entire thing, because of course she did.
Apparently, she can wear silk again!
The only thing Teigen loves more than food is sharing her life on social media, so of course, she took us straight to her dermatologist's office for the procedure. "BOTOXED MY ARMPITS. TRULY THE BEST DECISION I HAVE EVER MADE," she captioned the image, adding that she can "wear silk again."
Botox treats a lot of medical conditions totally unrelated to crow's feet.
Botox is FDA-approved to treat a whole host of other medical issues. The list includes chronic migraines, severe neck muscle spasms, eye twitching and lazy eye, and urinary incontinence. Off-label, Botox also treats TMJ-related pain, which is something I've seriously considered for my aching jaws. As Teigen demonstrates, it can also plug those pesky sweat glands in your pits, keeping them dry and stink-free.
