Anti-sweating injections work to reduce the amount of sweat produced by the body’s sweat glands.
Just like anti-wrinkle injections, this treatment is made up of the same substance used to eliminate wrinkles – Botulinum Toxin Type A.
During this procedure, the substance is injected into the area of concern, where excessive sweating is noticeable. The toxin acts to stop the sebaceous glands (where sweat is produced) from over contracting and excreting unnecessary moisture. This treatment can be applied to the palms of the hands, the soles of the feet and under the arms.
Anti-sweating injections are an effective solution for people who are unhappily affected by excessive sweating. This condition is medically known as Hyperhidrosis. It can affect anyone of any age, in isolated patches or all over the body and can be both distressing and embarrassing.
Although sweating is triggered by the body’s need to cool down, Hyperhidrosis can occur at spontaneous moments, with or without a cause. Undergoing this treatment can often liberate the affected person, not only from damp patches on clothing, but also from any accompanying odour that sees a person avoiding social situations as well as attempting to conceal their concerns.
Botulinum Toxin (known affectionately by its brand name BOTOX) is a versatile product that can be used to treat a variety of medical and aesthetic concerns. Dr. Shaan has undergone meticulous training in order to understand the way in which the toxin works to administer the product safely and effectively to treat a plethora of conditions.
Many patients have successfully reaped the benefits that botulinum toxin has provided, giving them back their confidence and self-esteem.Book a Consultation

Frequently asked questions
Am I Suitable For Anti-Sweating Injections?
Excessive sweating most commonly affects the hands, feet and under the arms. This condition is often noticeable to others, which can impact on a person’s emotional well-being. In this instance Dr. Shaan will take an in-depth look at the concern, considering any likely causes and the results that the person is wanting the treatment to achieve.
Are Anti-Sweating Injections Safe?
This treatment has FDA approval and is recommended and used by many professionals across both the medical and aesthetics industries. This product has become very popular for addressing lines and wrinkles and is rapidly growing in both popularity and reputation for excessive sweating. Anti-sweating injections have a low-side effect profile and can be life-changing.
Are Anti-Sweating Injections Painful?
When applying an injection to the skin, most professionals will warn of “a short, sharp scratch” as it enters the skin. Dr. Shaan will offer the use of a topical numbing cream, before the actual treatment, alleviating any discomfort that “short, sharp scratches” may produce. The needles that aestheticians use are very fine, reducing the sensitivity further still.
Are There Any Side Effects Or Risks?
It is possible for anti-sweating injections to cause swelling, redness and bruising at the treatment site. These effects have often subsided within 24 hours and any bruising can be covered over with cosmetics. Dr. Shaan will discuss other potential complications that can occur after the administration of botulinum toxin, including temporary numbness and infection.
What our patients say...
Shaan developed a personalised medical grade skincare routine for me to deal with my recently developed acne. It’s only been 3 days and I’ve already noticed a big difference using ZO products. I highly recommend Aatma Aesthetics for a seamless, professional and bespoke experience.
Dr. Shaan Patel is a perfectionist. I had 4mls of filler to give me back my cheeks and to remove my Nasolabial folds. I also had the 2 treatments of Profhilo. Was very impressed with my cheeks and removal of nasalabial folds.
My experience at Aatma Aesthetics from beginning to end was by far over 5 stars.
If I could give another star I would!
If you are looking for a professional service and to have peace of mind when you do your treatment this is definitely the place. Dr. Shaan was super attentive and explained everything in detail. We will definitely be coming back and I already recommended to some family and friends!!
Dr Shaan didn’t rush and not only took his time to explain what and how certain results could be achieved but also strived to delivered a lip’s shape that it was just perfect. He is highly skilled and even treated an area on my lips that I wasn’t even aware it could be performed and it completely changed the general look of my lips.
Always happy to be attended by Dr, Shaan. Extremely professional, charismatic, attentive to details, and very efficient. You know you can trust him!
Dr. Shaan at Aatma Aesthetics did a great job of my Profhilo. It’s important to get the Profhilo into the right depth in the skin or it’s just wasted. I can see the results already and my fine lines are reduced. Good to find a great Dr. who knows what he’s doing.
