Is Butt-Tox The Injection You Never Knew You Needed?
Here’s something you should not read with your morning coffee: There’s lots of reasons you should be sticking Botox in your butt. And while I’ll examine a few of them here, with 100 degree days coming and WAY TOO MANY OF YOU leaving sweat stains on the subway, we’ll start here.
I bet most of you have experienced swamp ass at some point. It’s not ladylike to talk about but sweating from the butt area can happen to ANYONE, but what you do not know is there’s something you can do about it.
“Swamp-ass is caused by an overabundance of sweat gland secretions in both men and women,” says Dr. Peter Neumann, Chief Plastic Surgeon at Nassau Plastic Surgical Associates in Roslyn, NY. Up until now, the main treatment was powder or frequent underwear changes. “Botox is known to reduce secretions in sweat glands in various parts of the body, i.e, underarms, groin and feet. Using the same method for buttocks secretions have proven to be both effective and satisfying. Treatment is performed using a small amount of Botox to the area affected yearly. Sometimes a second dose will be needed after two weeks to make sure all the affected glands have responded. Get rid of the powder and try Butt-Tox for this problem!” says Dr. Neumann.
But that’s not the only reason you would try Botox for the butt. A great one, but not the only one. It can also be helpful for anal fissures and nerve pain related to sciatic issues.
While we also wish we can be using it to lift our butt, that’s not true. The injections that work there are fat transfer (and usually combined with surgery). While a volume filler, it’s meant for the shoulders, up.
All in all, even though buttox sounds like the butt of a joke, it is pretty fascinating what it is capable of in that area, don’t you think?
