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

You are unlikely to require any downtime, and may resume daily activities immediately after treatment.
What our patients say...
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.
Caroline is extremely knowledgeable and explains everything clearly and puts you at ease during consultation. So professional and really friendly! I can’t wait to start treatments with her.
Caroline gets better and better! Love my appointments as she always gives you plenty of time and fantastic results. Not pushy, only prescriptive. Recommend her any day!
Excellent results, very pleased. Very professional. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend!
First visit to R and R Aesthetics. I received a lovely welcome. The clinic is bright, modern and extremely clean. Caroline was very professional and knowledgeable so I was made to feel relaxed. Only had my treatment yesterday and very pleased with results so far.
Caroline was recommended to me by a family member, I’d been nervous about lip fillers for a few years and wanted the person doing it to be trusted and professional. Caroline is both. She is very thorough, her knowledge and skills put me at ease. Her service is flawless every time I visit and I really appreciate how accommodating her appointments are. Highly recommended. I even travel from London to Leeds I love her service that much.
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.
First time getting my lips done and i couldn’t be happier! I was quite nervous as i wasn’t sure how they might turn out as i have quite little facial features but Caroline was quick to ease any of my worries! She explained every detail of the treatment i was about to receive and carried on doing so through out the whole service, checking i was happy and comfortable at all times. So pleased i chose to come to Caroline and honestly wouldn’t go anywhere else! Not to mention she worked around the times and dates most suitable for myself and opened up shop just for my treatment that day, excellent customer service! I can’t wait to return!
Have been going to Caroline for various treatments in between lock down and haven’t looked back. Knowledgeable, professional and friendly.
I have visited Caroline since 2017 for my treatments. I highly recommend her services, she is amazing at what she does. I have already recommended Caroline to friends and family. She is knowledgeable and professional and the clinic is beautiful. If you are reading this review deciding whether or not to book – do it! You won’t be disappointed.
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!
Excellent appointment with Caroline this week and I’m grateful for her moving the date forward due to lockdown. I’m starting to see results from my Endybleph already (had 2 treatments) so I’m really happy

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!
