Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) is a very common condition, which has two main types. Focal hyperhidrosis is the more common type and involves excessive sweating on the feet, hands, armpits and occasionally, the face. Generalised hyperhidrosis is less common.
Excessive sweating affects about 4% of the western population; it often interferes with the individual's life by causing physiological problems, such as cold and clammy hands, dehydration, and skin infections secondary to maceration of the skin, as well as emotional consequences due to embarrassment, limiting daily activities, interfering with interpersonal relationships, necessitating frequent changes of clothes, etc.
Aesthetic Virtue is a London-based clinic offering Botox injections for the effective treatment of hyperhidrosis. The clinic has state-of-the-art facilities and enables patients to enjoy a comfortable and welcoming environment throughout their treatment.
Our doctors are all fully accredited, advanced practitioners with years of experience in using Botox injections to provide stunning results.
At Aesthetic Virtue in London, we are completely focused on you as an individual and aim to give you an end result that exceeds your expectations and offers control over your hyperhidrosis.
Treatment for hyperhidrosis by Botulinum Toxin can offer a life-changing solution for patients. By injecting low doses of Botox into the underarm, for example, it can reduce the transition of impulses and thus sweating activity by temporarily blocking the nerves that stimulate sweating for three to eight months.
Botox injections offer a safe, approved and non-surgical solution to the hyperhidrosis. Botox is a temporary solution and its effects are fully reversible. Botox injections are quick and convenient to administer and Aesthetic Virtue in London offers some of the most competitive Botox prices in London.
Botulinum Toxin is a purified protein and the injections are an extremely safe procedure. These injections use a fine needle and a small dose of Botox, which is injected into a targeted area of muscle or muscle groups to cause temporary muscle relaxation. The actual procedure will take just five to ten minutes and involves a small number of injections.

How does Botox for hyperhidrosis work?
Botox for hyperhidrosis works by preventing the tiny muscles around the sweat glands from contracting and producing sweat.
What does the treatment involve?
After a consultation, numbing cream is applied to the area to be treated (this area may need to be mapped out using iodine solution and corn flour in certain cases). A series of injection about one centimetre apart are injected into this area, followed by anti-bruising cream.
What are the side effects?
It is common to have small raised bumps of skin at the injection site; these may be slightly red and will go down about 20 minutes after the treatment (please feel free to wait in our waiting room enjoying a cup of tea until these go down!).
Bruising at the injection site may occasionally occur; this will resolve quickly.
It is quite common to experience a mild headache after Botox injection to the face. This can be easily treated with over-the-counter painkillers.
What are the complications?
Complications are unlikely. However, sometimes there may be patchy results and in extremely rare cases, there has been a migration of the product into surrounding muscles with resulting arm weakness.
What should I do or not do following the treatment?
For the next four to six hours, do not rub or massage the area, avoid strenuous exercise, avoid hot baths, showers or saunas, do not lie flat and avoid alcohol.

All my questions were addressed, treatment options, outcomes, potential side effects and after-care instructions were very clear. And the procedure was far less painful than I had imagined!
A gentle hand… you might have very possibly cured my needle-phobia finally! And thank goodness, as everybody thinks I’m looking younger and fresher now!
A clinic that insists on natural results! Fabulous! Now I’m loving the compliments.
Dr Raina has been my doctor for the last 18 months, and she will be for many months longer.
Recently my 20 year old daughter (who has beautiful full lips) told me she wanted to get her lips enlarged and that she had already spoken to another doctor about it, who was willing to do it for her. I took her along with me to discuss it with Dr Raina who explained to her that her natural lips are very nice and in proportion with the rest of her face. She mentioned that more volume will ruin the proportions and she would look ‘done’. We are both very grateful for the honesty there.
A very professional, honest and straightforward doctor with surgical skills to match! My right earlobe split 6 years ago, and I was too anxious to have it repaired.
Now, I have no idea why I didn’t get it done sooner!
After discussing the pros and cons of removing the mole on my face, I finally underwent the procedure. Three months on, I am very pleased with the result. I appreciate the no frills honesty and straightforwardness.
Highly professional… I will certainly be recommending you!
