BOSTON (CBS) — It’s like getting your haircut, manicure or pedicure. You just need to get general upkeep.

Tess Doyle gets Botox injections on a regular basis.

“It stops the excessive sweating and that’s what I was after,” she says.

The Botox is injected into her scalp to stop sweating at the hairline.

“My hair is dry, my make up is on, and if you would’ve seen me before the treatment, you would think I just got out of the shower,” Doyle says.

Dr. Joseph Eviatar says he treats patients with a condition called “hyperhidrosis,” which causes excessive sweating and in this case, around the hairline and on the head.

“These are people who really have changed their (lives) around this condition,” he said.

“(When) those little beads of sweat start falling, your makeup comes down,” Doyle says.

But now, Doyle can do her hair and makeup before working out, and she still doesn’t have to worry about the sweat.

For Jordan Stewart, it was all about the hair. The constant sweating meant her long blond locks were always damp.
