Anyone thinking of getting Botox to treat excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) may be encouraged after one patient said it had worked perfectly.
Hair stylist Amy Jerrard told WECT News that she used to feel terribly self-conscious because every time she was near hot instruments, a damp patch would develop under her arms.
This was negatively affecting her self-confidence and her performance at work, as she felt unwilling to lift her arms in case her clients saw.
Ms Jerrard decided to have Botox under her arms and she reported that the change has been phenomenal, as she now sweats no more than the average person.
She revealed she intends to have it again if her hyperhidrosis returns and said it was "worth every penny".
Dr Michael Persky recently told the Orange County Register he often uses Botox in cases of teenage hyperhidrosis, as it can provide great results at a time when the condition could cause acute embarrassment.
