The Sun looked at the rise in people having botox injections for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and invited SkinViva’s Dr Tim Pearce to comment.
The article appeared during one of the summer hot spells and described how Brits are flocking to have Botox injections to stop sweating.
The article said:
The jabs, usually used to get rid of wrinkles, can control excessive underarm sweating by blocking signals from the brain to sweat glands.
Dr Tim Pearce of Manchester’s SkinViva clinic said:
“More and more people are coming to us”
Celeb Danielle Lloyd 31 and US TV presenter Kelly Ripa 44 have both admitted using Botox to stop sweat.
While the summer can be particularly uncomfortable for those with hyperhidrosis, excessive sweating is a year-round condition. So sufferers find they sweat noticeably even in the winter and while resting.
Heat and stress serve to exacerbate the condition and make it even more difficult.
Botox injections are an extremely effective solution and the results will last for months. When the Botox wears off, treatment can be repeated.
The price of hyperhidrosis treatment at SkinViva is £425 or for patients opting to pay monthly via direct debit, there is a discount, making it the equivalent of £395.
