At R&R Aesthetics, we use the anti wrinkle injection Botulinum Toxin (which is a prescription only drug and should only be administered by a registered prescriber), to treat Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), which is most commonly a problem in the underarm. The Botulinum Toxin is injected into the problem area in a series of small injections, to block the neuro-transmitter that causes stimulation of the sweat glands, making the muscles relax and as a result, the sweating reduces or subsides altogether.
This is a highly effective treatment, as the reduction in visible sweating can be dramatic, improving the day to day life and confidence of sufferers. Results are expected after as little as one to two weeks, lasting for up to 6 months, meaning you can go about your daily activities without the fear of embarrassing wet patches or unpleasant odour.
The use of Botulinum Toxin for the treatment of Hyperhidrosis in the armpit is FDA approved.Book a Consultation

Visited this lovely clinic this afternoon after many months of deliberating whether to have my lips filled. After extensive research I chose Caroline who owns refined & radiant. I couldn’t be more happy with the way my lips look. Caroline is So professional and as I was scared, Caroline put me so much at ease. I am now looking at other treatments with Caroline. Thank you so much I love my lips they are amazing!
My wife visited Caroline for a consultation regarding her tear troughs and nasolabial folds. Caroline explained that because both areas were puffy , fillers in these areas would not be suitable and the best results would be from cheek fillers. Caroline showed my wife photographic examples of previous clients and the results cheek fillers had achieved but at no time did it feel like a hard sale. After deciding to proceed with cheek fillers Caroline thoroughly explained the procedure and risks involved and talked to my wife all the way through the procedure to ensure everything was alright. The premises are very clean and modern and Caroline is extremely professional. Would highly recommend.
Highly professional and a relaxed friendly attitude. I had botox with Caroline and a peel treatment. Caroline is very informative and makes you feel at ease. Explains everything clearly and her results are outstanding. I highly recommend Caroline she is wonderful.
I’ve had two treatments with Caroline so far and have been so pleased with the results. Most recently I have commenced a course of Dermapen facials, I was initially extremely nervous about the procedure but Caroline put me at ease. She is professional and knowledgeable in all her communication and aftercare, and the clinic setting is pristine. I recommend her to all my friends!
