MANCHESTER, ENGLAND, August 25, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/
-- The recent sunny weather may have been a reason to rejoice for many Brits keen to lie back and top up their tans, but not everyone appears to have been celebrating.
According to figures released by Transform Cosmetic Surgery Group, a 45% surge in enquiries about BOTOX injections to treat excessive sweating
was recorded during a three-day period at the height of the heatwave.
For scores of Brits, worries about sticky pits and clammy hands took prescience over soaking up the sun and enjoying the weather.
Also known has Hyperhidrosis, excessive sweating is caused by increased activity in the sweat glands, which produce sweat in larger amounts than the body requires, especially during hot weather.
However, the nerve impulses can be blocked using BOTOX injections, meaning sufferers are able to get on with their lives without worrying about dripping armpits or a sweaty handshake.
Speaking about the data, Shami Thomas, spokesperson for the Transform Cosmetic Surgery Group
, remarked: "In summer, most people become increasingly aware of sweating, and for some people excessive sweating can become almost unbearable.
"Our Hyperhidrosis treatment is a simple solution for a common problem, which leaves patients more confident and gives them the freedom to wear what they want and enjoy summer to the full."
