Friday Favorites—Botox

This is pretty personal so of course I want to shout it from the mountain tops— BOTOX® changed my life! Several months ago I was at the dermatologist being treated for some skin irritations (even more personal which I’ll tell you about later!) when I happened to mention that I was a “wicked” sweaty person. I explained that I sweat so profusely from my armpits (especially my right) that I’ve been known to tape paper towels under my arms in order to wear certain clothes. My dermatologist diagnosed me as having hyperhidrosis (excessive sweatiness!) and submitted a form to my insurance company requesting full coverage of BOTOX® to stop the sweating. Similar to the way it removes wrinkles (and causes that surprised look!) BOTOX® paralyzes nerve endings and inactivates sweat glands. Who knew? My insurance company accepted the claim and I’m sweat free for free and it has been life changing!
