This month proprietor of The Clinic on Belfast’s Lisburn Road, Jackie Donnelly, discusses how to stay fresh and dry during special occasions.

A wedding day is one of the most important days in a bride or groom’s life. It’s your chance to shine – but not with sweat! Unfortunately, 3% of the population suffers from a medical condition characterised by extreme sweating and special occasions, such as a wedding, can soon become dreaded events.

Although we’re not enjoying much of a summer in Northern Ireland this year, local brides suffering from the condition haven’t escaped the dreaded sweat patches. Excessive sweating can target sufferers all year round affecting their confidence and giving brides-to-be another worry to add to their list.
With Kate Middleton setting a trend for long sleeved wedding dresses, the demand for sweat-free solutions is on the increase – there’s nothing worse than a beautiful white dress covered in tell-tale sweat patches!

Many of the brides, and indeed grooms, who visit me at The Clinic are anxious about their problem heightening with the nerves, stress, posing for photographs and rushing around that comes with the big day.

Fortunately, there is a solution to underarm sweating that will ensure the same, dry confidence as the aforementioned Duchess of Cambridge. At The Clinic we offer a treatment that can be used to control and reduce excessive sweating. The treatment is so effective that we find many of our clients continue to top up their treatments on a yearly basis to keep sweating at bay during their normal routine.

For those interested in finding out a bit more about the treatment I offer a free telephone or in-person consultation where I can discuss your worries and explain a bit more about the procedure. I recommend coming in for a medical consultation a couple of weeks prior to your wedding and, if the treatment is right for you, a medical practitioner can carry out the procedure on the same day leaving you one less thing to worry about on your big day.

A The Clinic we offer a wide range of innovative and non-surgical cosmetic treatments to make you look your best whatever the occasion.
