Sweating ? Office workers turning to Botox

Syringe

In a hypercompetitive corporate world where workers are too afraid to take parental leave or even abandon their desks for lunch, there is one more thing to worry about: Now we don’t want any of our co-workers to see us sweat — literally.

MarketWatch reports that physicians say increasing numbers of professionals are asking them for anti-sweating procedures, from Botox injections to a newer treatment called microwave thermolysis, approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2011.

The former is an injection of a commercially available form of Botulinum toxin, which causes muscle paralysis and is more widely used to reduce wrinkles; the latter destroys underarm sweat glands using microwave energy.

Also, consumer products companies are selling clinical-strength deodorants to help deal with the problem.
