As Britain faces the hottest temperatures all year and predictions of record breaking heat, there are many who fear the consequences in terms of embarrassing sweat.
We all sweat to a certain degree – it is natural, normal and your body’s way of regulating temperature. But sweat is taboo and most people try to control its appearance through deodorants and antiperspirant products.
For some people there is no product strong enough to stop the sweat appearing. Warmer temperatures only exacerbate the problem, so the current hot spell will surely mean discomfort and embarrassment – especially in a hot office environment or at a special occasion such as a wedding, where it threatens to spoil an outfit.
Excessive Sweating – Hyperhidrosis
Hyperhidrosis is the medical name for a condition also known as excessive sweating. This is where sweat is above normal levels and difficult to control. Despite antiperspirants, the sweat continues and dampens clothing, leaving tell-tale sweat patches. Sufferers report that they are careful to choose clothing which by colour or style makes it less obvious, but it is a limiting and socially difficult condition.
Sweat Reduction Injections
Botulinum toxin is more commonly associated with anti-ageing cosmetic treatment. However, botox injections into the underarm area can quickly and effectively reduce and even stop sweating in the area for months at a time.
Media coverage over the last few years has made more people aware of this treatment, which is available at Quinn Clinics in Bristol and Greenwich/London. It is a far less invasive procedure than the older surgical options and offers an excellent result which can last from 4-12 months.
