The influencer and former porn star shared videos on Instagram of her receiving Botox injections in her armpits.

In the footage, she said: "Not in my forehead yet, still just in my armpits."

She went on to explain that she has hyperhidrosis, a condition characterised by excessive sweating.

According to Hyperhidrosis UK, botulinum toxin injects work 'by blocking the chemical at the end of the nerves so that it cannot work on the glands or muscles'. In the case of the sweat glands, it effectively turns them off to reduce sweating.

Opening up about how the injections had helped her, Khalifa said: "I've dad hyperhidrosis for about five years - when my anxiety disorder got really bad is when I noticed deodorant just stopped working for me.

"But because I don't use deodorant - or because deodorant doesn't work for me - what I do is, two or three times a year, I just get Botox in my armpits and it shuts the sweat glands.

"I live my life, I don't sweat through shirts, I can wear grey. I don't have to worry about stains in the middle of winter when I don't have an excuse to be sweating.

"So Botox in my armpits changed my life."

Fair play, it is nice to be able to wear grey.

The procedure was carried out by rhinoplasty surgeon Dr Dugar, who did her nose job in June 2020.

The Lebanese star said she 'could not stop smiling' following the operation, which aimed to maintain her 'strong middle eastern nose, just softening it to be more feminine'.

In a post on Instagram revealing her bandaged hooter, she said: "THIS IS THE REAL RE-BRAND. @deepakdugarmd just changed my life and I couldn't be happier or more ready for 75+ people to stare at my side profile at my wedding.

"This is day 2 post-op and I have a pain scale of 0 so far. I'm gonna take y'all on this whole process with me."

The wedding ceremony she referenced never took place, though.

She got engaged to Swedish chef Robert Sandberg in March 2019, before they legally tied the knot in the kitchen of their first home on 10 June 2019.

They were due to have their wedding ceremony on 10 June last year, but it was cancelled due to Covid-19, and now the pair have gone their separate ways.
