Chrissy Teigen shares video getting Botox in her armpits to prevent sweating

Chrissy Teigen is a polarizing person, but I appreciate how she’s living out loud and how she and her husband are as liberal as we are and regularly call out deplorables. She creates a lot of content and she’s somewhat like the Kardashian Jenners in that she’s easy to cover and has made a cottage industry out of that. Most of the time we ignore her unless it’s a particularly slow gossip week or she does something notable. This time she’s getting Botox in her armpits, which is interesting to me! People Magazine is covering this or I wouldn’t have noticed, frankly, I don’t have the time or interest to watch all the celebrity Instagram stories. People recaps how Chrissy previously admitted she got the fat sucked out from under her arms and liked the results. *ponders this* Here’s People’s report and I’ve included some screencaps below. This video is still available as of now, if you press the right arrow nine times on her stories. (She posts so damn much!)

In the clip, Teigen can be seen lying on her back as Dr. Jason Diamond injects botox into her pits.

It appears she was a bit nervous about the procedure as she held a piece of cloth over her mouth.

However, her worries were soon over as the process only took a few minutes.

“That really isn’t anything,” Teigen says before taking a sigh of relief. “It looked very frightening.”

“That’s it,” Diamond tells her.

This isn’t the first time Teigen has opened up about getting work done to her armpits.

In a 2017 interview with Refinery29, Teigen revealed “I had an armpit sucked out, which was one of the best things.”

“It’s a big secret, but I don’t care. It was nine years ago or so. And I had two inches to my armpit. Now it’s back though, so now I’ve gotta pay for [liposuction] again.”

“It was so easy. It made me feel better in dresses; I felt more confident. It was the dumbest, stupidest thing I’ve ever done. The dumbest, but I like it, whatever. I have no regrets, honestly.”

[From People]

I don’t sweat, just a small to average amount I think. I once met a lady who has that sweating disorder, hyperhidrosis, and she explained (I met her in a group) that she is self conscious about it and that she doesn’t shake hands for that reason. I could see getting Botox for that so you feel more confident, but this is kind of superficial. Chrissy would admit it’s superficial though, she doesn’t care, and I like how she explained getting the fan sucked out of her armpits. I would get my batwings (that problem area under your upper arms) fixed! I’ve been lifting more and they’re a little better but they still bug. Also, Chrissy looked kind of Botoxed and filled in that video without makeup on. It’s hard to tell though and it seems like if she was getting her face done she would admit that too. Oh she did admit she’s done work to her face, I just searched on it. She just didn’t go into specifics. Fair enough!



Also she shared a video opening a package of tiny food from Real Littles, which is a Shopkins toy brand. I am so going to feature this in the next Amazon post as it’s very cute. I need to do “research” on these toys first though.

    Next thing you know, she’ll tell us what kind of dump she took. NO ONE CARES! Attention whore

    I remember learning years ago Botox could be used for excessive sweating. It’s cool it has so many applications, not just to reduce wrinkles. I know it can also help with migraines. I’m sure there are other applications I’m not aware of but a lot of people don’t realize it can help with sweating etc.

    Chrissy Teigen is ridiculous and she used to really annoy me (she still kind of does) but I appreciate the hilarity and levity she gives us in these dark times. I remember when she tweeted out she needed bananas and some random lady in LA met with her assistant to transfer the bananas.

    • Eliza says:

      Your body will get rid of it in other ways sadly. You’ll start sweating from a new area. It has to get it out, one way or another.

    • pottymouth pup says:

      plantar fascitis is one of the most common off-label uses for botulinum toxin

      (it can also be used for excessive salivation & overactive bladder)

    • Spicecake38 says:

      I had a patient with hyperhidrosis,(mainly in her feet) get Botox in her feet.Sounds painful but worth it if you truly have a problem.

  3. clandestina says:

    I did that once. Armpits dry as the desert … and 1 week later my palms started sweating like crazy. The doctor called this „compensatory sweating“.

  4. Jadedone says:

    Don’t we need to sweat tho? That’s how the body cools itself off I thought?

  5. Valiantly Varnished says:

    I have hyperhidrosis. And I would have done this in a hearbeat if my insurance would have covered it. But it is $500 PER ARMPIT. And I would have to have it done every 3-6 months depending on my body. So instead I tried prescription anti-perspirant. Which was TERRIBLE. It literally burned my armpits. They were stained dark for a good year after I stopped using it.
    And whatever you do to stop sweating the body will compensate because the sweat has to go somewhere. For me it goes to my CROTCH. Wet undies. Everyday. It’s gross. But I would still get the botox treatments in a heartbeat if I could afford them. My hyperhidrosis isn’t as bad as it was and I now use an OTC clinical strength anti-perspirant but I would love to just be able to wear natural deodorant.
    Edit: and I would also REALLY love to be able to wear silk.

    • 2lazy4username says:

      Not to get you into debt, but if you could afford it with no-interest monthly payments, there is a thing called Care Credit that many Botox providers accept. It’s pretty easy to qualify for and you can choose to purchase on a 6 mo, 12 mo, or 18 mo no-interest plan. If you did it twice a year, it’s be less than $100 a month each time. Just an idea 🙂

      • Valiantly Varnished says:

        Ive used Care Credit in the past. It’s run by GE and I didn’t like it. And no I wouldn’t want to use a credit card for something that would require continual maintenance like this. That would be a vicious cycle of debt.

      • 2lazy4username says:

        @Valiantly – I use it for vet expenses to pay upfront until I get reimbursed from my insurance and have never had an issue. Can you share what the problems were when you used it? Want to be sure I don’t get in trouble!

      • pottymouth pup says:

        Botox for legit medical purposes should be covered by insurance. Also, the botulinum toxin manufacturers have special departments to help patients get insurance reimbursement so it’s worth having your doctor speak to their sales rep to get the contact info for the reimbursement specialists

      • Spicecake38 says:

        I have had serious excessive sweating of the armpits,it was the worst in my twenties and early thirties and still comes and goes,but weirdly for me it never smelled like sweaty body odor-just soaked armpit area.I used that terrible prescription deodorant,hated it.I think stress always makes it worse at least for me.Strangely now my go to deodorant is degree for men.It has helped a lot I could not do all natural deodorant,I wish I could.

    • KPick says:

      Have you tried taking Robinul? It works for me but does make my mouth very dry. I have to take a high dose if it’s really hot, but that’s the only side effect I get. I only take it when I have going to a summer wedding and not wanting to look like a wet rat before I even finish getting my makeup on. My biggest problem area is my face/head..but it’s bad all over. Anyway, it’s great to have on hand for when you really need to keep it under control!!

    • Original Jenns says:

      I have a lighter version, and my clammy hands/feet make me self conscious, but it’s livable. I always tell my boyfriend that when I come back to haunt him, he’ll know it’s me by the wet footprints. My sister has this, hands and feet are the worst, can get drenched. She doesn’t like hand shaking either. And even though it effects her life and is medically diagnosed, insurance still considered it a cosmetic issue, which means the surgery that could help is all out of pocket. I don’t know about the botox, but I could see running into the same issues as the surgery since that’s what the problem is there. Ridiculous.

    • Vavavoom says:

      I have hyperhidrosis in my armpits. I would soak through everything I wore throughout high school. I could never wear cotton or light colours. Sweat literally dripped constantly from my underarms. My antiperspirant would be gone within an hour of applying it. It started at about 12 years of age. When I was 28, I heard an ad on an ontario radio station (I’m in Canada) for a product called drysol.
      I found it at Wal-Mart and used it as directed. (Once a week for about a month). And I have not had armpit sweat issues since – I just turned 45. I highly recommend it. It was about $20 for a bottle back then and I didn’t even use it all.

  6. Dragonlady sakura says:

    I’m not hating on this because if I had the extra money, I would lipo the hell out of my gut. That pain in the ass FUPA is my most hated thing.

    • Megan says:

      Do Cool Sculpt. It’s a fraction of the price of lipo and it really works.

      • Eliza says:

        I’ve never done cool sculpt, so can’t vouch, but i would definitely go that route in the future as I hate my pouch too and with #2 on the way i imagine it’s going to get worse. Lipo carries the highest mortality rate of any plastic surgery. That alone scares me away.

      • Spicecake38 says:

        Know someone who just did cool sculpture to inner thighs,took about 1.5 hours and ran 1550.00-Will need one more treatment for optimum results,same time to treat and same price.Its been eight weeks and she’s noticing results,I can see them too but don’t want to stare.She says clothing fit is definitely better.Surgeon friend of mine used to do lipo says cool sculpture is excellent and works well. I am thinking of having it done to my knees.They look too blubbery compared to the rest of my legs and I am self conscious in shorter dresses We’ll see.

    • Joanna says:

      I have a FUPA too 😥

  7. OriginalLala says:

    If I had the money and worked in such a looks-driven field I’d probably get lipo on the reg lol

  8. Goldengirlslover34 says:

    My friend does it. He sweats a lot from his armpits and was very self conscious about it because of dress shirts. He loves the results.

  9. cer says:

    She used to annoy me, but I like her now.
    And props to John for showing up in the Oregon District on Sunday. I figured he would, being that he’s sort of local, but it was nice to see the support he gave.

  10. Grant says:

    I love Chrissy. She cracks me up, but I suppose I’m just inclined to find her “overshares” more humorous and innocuous than offensive.

  11. Veronica S. says:

    Honestly, as grossly blunt as it can be, I’d rather celebrities be more honest about the sheer amount of work their wealth affords them to have done. It chips away at the idea of natural perfection than carefully cultivated images.

  12. Terry Berngards says:

    My former husband had that done to his armpits. But only to reduce it to normal, manageable levels. His Doctor told him it was healthy to sweat, just not to that level. I wonder if people realize they have that option?

  13. kelleybelle says:

    Some toxins can only be released from the body through sweating. Foolish girl. She’s going to LOVE menopause 😉

  14. CROWHOOD says:

    For anybody considering this to be frivolous – I would pay all the money to not sweat the way I do. It is a professional burden to constantly be dripping sweat. The other day I was Running a conference call from home. Wasn’t nervous, wasn’t hot. Stood up from sitting cross legged for 30 min and my black leggings had soaked through anywhere my legs were bent.

    • TuxCat5 says:

      I recently started using “Certain Dri (“Prescription Strength Clinical”) roll-on….I’ve tried the other “clinicals” and this one works *the best*. Try applying it to the backs of your knees for when you’re sitting cross-legged. And follow the directions: you have to apply it the night before. (I also apply it again in the morning).

  15. JenUK says:

    I’ve had this done but only to correct a side effect from an operation… post op, I only sweated from one armpit, so they botoxed the sweaty armpit to even it out. Looks scary but after the first few injections, the pain subsided and I nearly fell asleep! Anyway; a few days later, I had “compensatory sweating” from my back, hands and boobs. I was a sweaty-Betty for about a year (with bone dry armpits!) – thankfully my body sweats normally now! 😂
