hyperhidrosisIf you’re embarrassed by excessive sweating, you’re not alone. 

The condition affects many people including some true A-list celebrities. No matter who you are, it is hard to deal with the appearance of damp patches under the arms.

OK! Health earlier this year ran an article ‘No Sweat!’ which investigated the problem.

Celebrities with Excessive Sweating

Emma Stone told The Ellen DeGeneres show that she sweats a lot. She explained:

“After about a minute of any type of physical exertion I break into a horrible sweat.”

She’s suffered from the condition for about a year and a half.

Penny Lancaster, Mrs Rod Stewart, told ITV’s Loose Women that she had lived with it for decades, suffering with excessive sweating on her hands since her teens. She said:

“It started when I was a teeneager and I was doing exams….

“…had to wear white cotton gloves.”

Cameron Diaz has been photographed with underarm patches and Halle Berry showed her damp patches to Ellen on TV, saying:

“…That’s so embarrassing.”

Sweating and Hyperhidrosis

Sweating is normal and natural. It is the body’s way of dealing with heat control. However, excessive sweating is when the body sweats more than it needs to, leaving damp underarms, hands, forehead or feet. The condition is medically known as ‘hyperhidrosis‘.

It can be quite stressful and potentially embarrassing – not only for those in the public eye, but also for those who suffer with the condition in a place of work.

Sweating Treatment

Now there is a treatment for those who suffer from problem sweating in the armpits.

BOTOX injections delivered into the underarm area work incredibly quickly to stop excess sweating. Results of treatment start to be felt within a few hours, reaching their full potential in a matter of days. Patients for whom no antiperspirant was strong enough can then do without for months at a time.

The treatment is not permanent, but can be repeated when injections wear off.

All of Cosmedics Skin Clinics’ team of doctors are trained in excessive sweating treatment using BOTOX. The treatment starts with a careful examination of the problem area, then marking up the underarm area before carefully administering a series of tiny injections, positioned for maximum impact.

Cosmedics Skin Clinics’ Medical Director, Dr Ross Perry, demonstrates the treatment:
