Girl I Want To Make You (Not) Sweat

 

Excessive Sweating Treatments in London

It’s July, beauties!

And this article is going to discuss the hyperhidrosis – (Excessive Sweating Treatment) at Look Lovely London.

 

Summer is on and, yes, miraculously, even in England…so is the heat!

But, let’s face it, excessive perspiration can cause a lot of misery this time of year.

 

It prevents you from going about daily activities with the usual sassy confidence.

Whether it’s cramped conferences, swaggering in a short-sleeved dress with your hot date, gripping the above handle on London Underground…or taking part in beach sports with your mates. 

Sweat issues might even keep you off (shock, horror) the dance floor at your best friend’s wedding!

No fun.

Personally, antiperspirants weren’t doing it for me.

I found myself buying mini aerosols all the time, stuffing them in my bag, blushingly, making excuses over dinner and briskly disappearing into the bathroom to spray my smelly underarms. 

The more anxious I got about it, the more I sweated and, despite the “extra strong” deodorant, I somehow always ended up with nasty marks on my pretty clothes!

(The time I wore a cream dress at my friend’s wedding in Greece was particularly embarrassing.)

So when the hot weather hit and sunny trips abroad got scheduled with my new man, I decided enough was enough and I’d make my life easier by getting botox.  

Underarm Botox injections from Look Lovely London

At Look Lovely London, the receptionist informed me that the treatment did not require the numbing cream or ice pack.

In fact, it was the most painless place to have injections!

I wasn’t too fussed, since I shave, wax and besiege that area so much anyway that momentary discomfort means nothing. 

Dr. Wilson first wiped the area clean and injected under my arms through a fine needle.

It was about 20 quick, superficial pricks and hardly noticeable. 

She said the botox would block the nerve impulses and basically stop the sweat glands from functioning over the next week or so.

More units were required for underarms than facial anti-wrinkle injections but the effect would also last longer- up to 6 to 9 months. 

Oh and the process took roughly 20 minutes and afterwards Dr. Wilson advised me not to apply anything to the area for 6 hours, or engage in strenuous exercise for 24 hours. 

I left the clinic that day, got right back to work and followed her instructions…

Within a week, I noticed less sweating and after 2 weeks, I didn’t need deodorant at all!

So now I was all set for hot London days and glamorous world travel.

This has to be hands down the most convenient procedure for summer I’ve had at the Look Lovely London clinic.

It really is for anyone, who either sweats a lot and/or works and plays hard in sticky environments or, like me, is just sick of using spray-ons over and over again. 

It also maintains those sexy clothes you wear, whether a wedding dress or a cute mini, you’ll find yourself at the dry cleaner’s way less

Finally, it keeps you confident and comfortable in the glorious sunny months! And for me that’s priceless.

So that’s all from my smooth, dry pits lovelies. 

Enjoy the swelter and remember to stay sweat-free.

Learn How You Can Get Luscious Lips In Just 30 Minutes With This One Secret Trick

Whether your lips are naturally thin, or have lost their fullness over time as a result of ageing, you may have considered having lip fillers. Not everyone is born with luscious lips and even those who are experience a reduction in the plumpness of their pout over time.

The older you get, the less collagen you produce, which is why people often notice a change in the shape and size of their lips as they age. However it’s not only ageing that can have an effect; the sun’s ultraviolet rays can also cause collagen to break down and lips to thin.

If you want to keep your naturally full lips, or wish you could enhance the ones you were born with, you might want to consider dermal fillers. We understand that with any procedure there is always a concern with potential side effects, which is why we have put together this simple guide to ensure you have all the information you need before you decide if dermal fillers are right for you.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are soft tissue filler which can be injected into the skin to give a smoother, fuller appearance. Look Lovely London uses Restylane to enhance the lip area and provide border definition in order to achieve either a glamorous or natural look, whichever you prefer.

The main component of the fillers we use is hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a naturally occurring substance found in all living organisms. Hyaluronic acid is a natural moisture-binding ingredient that keeps skin plump and hydrated.

How long do lip fillers last?

The length of time dermal fillers last for can vary from patient to patient, however fillers which have been applied to the lip area using one of the brands supplied by us should last between 6-12 months.

How much do lip fillers cost?

Look lovely London is currently offering first time customers a special price of £250 for a 1 ml syringe of dermal filler. This amount of filler is usually adequate for treatment.

Are there any side effects from dermal fillers?

Virtually anyone can have lip fillers if they are looking to reduce lines and wrinkles or create more defined, fuller lips, and side effects are very minimal. As the main component within the fillers we use is a naturally occurring substance, the risk of side effects is much smaller.

The most common reaction to fillers is swelling, which usually disappears within 4-5 days. As the lip area is more vascular than other parts of the face, bruising can often be slightly more noticeable, however an icepack will be provided straight away after the procedure to minimise any bruising and swelling.

If you think lip fillers might be for you, or would like further information on any of our treatments, give us a call on 0203 199 8245 and start your journey to a new, more confident you!
