Model and dancer Danielle Sheehan suffered with bouts of eczema since she was a baby and when the condition flared up again a few years ago she was shocked to find that Botox helped to relieve the symptoms. Danielle had Botox injections for cosmetic reasons but fortunately it had the side-effect of treating her eczema successfully, after many other medical products failed to do so.
24-year-old Danielle found her self-esteem crumbling after the condition flared up four years ago and she tried all the medication the doctor could prescribe, without success. The painful patches of dry skin on her face were making her life miserable. Just a year ago, the model visited a cosmetic surgeon to get Botox injections and shortly after undergoing the treatment she was pleased to see that the patches of eczema had cleared up completely.
Miss Sheehan, of Lowestoft in Suffolk, told MailOnline that she stopped booking photo shoots and would not see her boyfriend during flare-ups because she felt so self-conscious but says she felt ‘amazing’ when she realised the difference the Botox had made to her skin. She added ‘All of a sudden I felt good again. For the first time in years I liked how I looked, I liked what I saw in the mirror.’
