My Imperfect Body: What Treatments Are Available?
No, this article is not about people wanting to fit in clothes that are single digits (size 1, 2, etc.) which may not be healthy for your what you think is an imperfect body type. Rather it’s about real people needing answers to available treatments for real conditions.
You know that celebrity that you admire so much on screen as your idea of perfect? Guess what? Even they will have something about themselves that they won’t necessarily like. Believe it or not, no one is perfect.

Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)
Sweating is a natural body function, but for some people, they sweat more than you might expect. This form of excessive sweating is a condition known as hyperhidrosis. Normally, your sweat glands produce perspiration that’s carried to the skin’s surface when the air temperature rises, you’re stressed, feeling anxious, or nervous. When those factors are no longer at play, the nerves that signal sweating are put on hold.
But, for 2% to 3% of the world’s population who suffer from hyperhidrosis, however, the glands don’t shut off. These people sweat even when the circumstances don’t call for it; when they’re relaxing watching television or when they’re in an air conditioned environment.
Hyperhidrosis can disrupt daily activities and cause social anxiety or embarrassment. It can be debilitating both physically and mentally. The armpits are not the only part of the body that’s affected either. It can affect feet, palms of hands, face, chest, and even the groin are all affected by this condition.
Thankfully, symptoms are manageable with the assistance of Botox treatments. Injecting the skin with precise amounts of this solution, the nerves around the sweat glands will be blocked which means that the amount of sweat produced will be less.
Due to the stretch marks occurring during growth, most of us will have experienced them at some point in our lives. Many people are embarrassed to have them on their body, especially when they show in areas that aren’t easily hidden by clothes like bikinis or swimming trunks.
The good news is that stretch marks are not permanent and do tend to fade over time if treatment is started when they are visibly new. Stretch marks start off as pink in color and fades to a silvery color as they age.
While one of the most common causes of stretch marks for woman is pregnancy; when the body stretches to fit a growing baby, stretch marks are not exclusive to women. Both men and women can get stretch marks.
To find the right treatment for reducing the visibility of stretch marks, a consultation is required. While there are many different treatments available, it’s important to mention that none of them are 100% effective and the result is completely dependent upon your type of skin, skin tone, age, and even diet.
