    Chrissy Teigen Revealed On Instagram She Got Botox On Her Armpits To Stop Sweating

    Apparently, Botox is sometimes used to treat hyperhidrosis (aka excessive sweating).

    Chrissy Teigen has never shied away from disclosing personal aspects of her life.

    And last night, she took to her Instagram stories to open up about yet another topic — excessive armpit sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis — and shared how she got Botox to treat it.

    In the story, Teigen shouts out her LA-based plastic surgeon Dr. Jason Diamond and shares how Botoxing her armpits is the "best move" she's ever made, mentioning how she can now wear silk again.

    If you haven't heard about Botox for sweating, you should definitely read up on all the science around it before considering it for yourself.

    The cons are that it's pretty pricey (about $1,000 total) AND there's a chance of some rare but serious side effects, like trouble seeing and difficulty in breathing.

    Before considering Botox for yourself, you should definitely look into natural remedies like antiperspirants, looser clothing, moisture-wicking fabrics, and armpit shields.

    And whether you're just moderately sweaty or excessively sweaty, just remember that, well, you're definitely not alone!
