” I work as a lecturer and speak in front of large audiences. In the past I have had to keep my jacket on to avoid people seeing my large sweat patches on the underarm of my shirts as I have always had problems with excessive sweating. I heard how Botox could be used to reduce sweating so went to SMP Clinic where I met Dr Camilla. Dr Camilla carried my treatment and after 4 weeks I noticed a great reduction in the amount I sweat….I can now take my jacket off in front of large audiences. To some people this might not be a big deal, but for me I feel more confident and less self-conscious. Thank you SMP Clinic”
