This last Monday night at D’or (in the Dream Hotel) was the launch of Gen Art’s ‘Kick-Off to Fashion Week.’ The party was sponsored in part by BOTOX which believe it or not, is also used to excessive sweating. Who knew?

Back to Botox: during the event on Monday, Project Runway finalist from Season One’s Kara Saun, spoke about her experience with hyperhidrosis as a designer. Hyperhirdorsis (excessive sweating that can also effect hands and feet) affects eight million Americans.

It can be so severe it can negatively impact one’s life. A small dose of BOTOX can be highly effective for an average of a little over six months.
