Wrinkle reduction treatment on groin

Most people knew Wrinkle reduction treatment as a drug that can eliminate wrinkles and facial lines to bring back youthful appearance. However, Wrinkle reduction treatment can also help those suffering from excessive sweating, a condition known as hyperhidrosis.

Today, more and more people are getting Wrinkle reduction treatment to control excessive sweating. Common areas include armpits, the palm of the hands, sole of the feet and even the scalp. And now, people are also getting Wrinkle reduction Injections in their groin area too.

The groin area – the trough running from the hips where the genitals is situated, has folds that trap the belly skin and leg skin. This is the area where people, especially those obese, tend to trap a lot of moisture. The maker of Wrinkle reduction treatment , Allergan, claims the toxin injection can block the nerve signals that stimulate sweat glands.

Excessive sweating in the groin area can cause problems, particularly if you are obese or overweight. People who are obese or overweight often have an overhang on the lower abdomen. For thin individuals, it is not an issue of concern since they would have less overhang of lower belly that can trap moisture or sweat.
