It seems even the world’s most beautiful people can suffer from the embarrassing symptoms of hyperhidrosis. Halle Berry had been photographed on several occasions in the past with moisture patches under her arms.

The Oscar nominated actress even spoke about the problem on TV show Ellen in 2010 after the burgundy dress she was wearing, unforgivingly let the world in on her problem. Lifting her arms above her head, she joked that she had felt nervous for a dance group due to appear on the same show. It seems Halle was suffering from excessive sweating, otherwise known as hyperhidrosis.

Hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating that occurs when the surrounding temperature isn’t hot and you are not exercising. Hyperhidrosis usually affects the palms of the hands, soles of the feet and underarms. Besides disrupting normal daily activities, hyperhidrosis can cause social anxiety or embarrassment.

But fast forward 2 years and you would be pushed to find another image of the actress in the same damp, predicament.

So what did Halle do?

One treatment option is underarm Botox. Botox is the product name for injections containing a refined form of botulinum toxin known as Type A. Botox is most commonly associated with anti ageing procedures but when injected into areas of the skin that produce excess sweat, it effectively reduces perspiration. Botox blocks the actions of the nerves that supply the eccrine glands; this prevents the glands from producing sweat.

The Procedure

The treatment itself is quick and painless and, just 20 minutes after your treatment, you are ready to continue with your day or go back to work. Using a very fine needle, Botox is injected into multiple sites under the arm. You should notice a reduction in sweating within the first week after your treatment. This treatment can last up to 6 months.
