Sweat Smart - MediZen

1st Floor Astor House, 282 Lichfield Road, Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham, B74 2UG



As a Sweat Smart Centre, MediZen are your specialists offering the complete range of professional, non-surgical treatment options available to help you make the best decision to manage or alleviate your condition. Treatment options include:

miraDry - A safe, clinically proven*, non-invasive procedure for the underarms, miraDry uses electromagnetic energy which is delivered to the skin using a specially designed hand piece. The energy is carefully targeted to the area where the sweat glands are found and destroys them. Sweat glands do not grow back, so the procedure gives a lasting and dramatic reduction* in underarm sweat, as well as reducing odour. 

Iontophoresis – This treatment uses water to conduct a mild electrical current through the skin's surface to interrupt sweat production. It is thought that the electric current reacts with the mineral particles in the water to thicken the outer layer of the skin and block the flow of sweat to the surface. The effects are temporary.

Sweat Reducing Injections - Work by blocking the release of chemicals from the nerves that send signals from the brain to the sweat glands, thereby reducing sweating. You may want to consider injections if prescription antiperspirants or other options have failed to work for you. Multiple injections are given to the area being treated and the reduction in sweat is seen almost immediately, however are only a temporary solution.

Antiperspirants - Antiperspirant must be frequently reapplied to be effective and some people find that they have a negative reaction, causing the skin to become irritated. Many hyperhidrosis sufferers find that they can manage their excessive sweating using this treatment. However, if you find that prescription antiperspirants don’t work or cause irritation, you might want to learn about further treatment options.
