Botox is a very effective treatment for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) in areas like the armpits, palms of the hands and soles of the feet. But did you know that Botox is starting to be used for treatment of excessive sweating of the scalp too?
Botox scalp treatments are rapidly becoming popular, especially among women who sweat excessively while exercising, yet want to avoid over shampooing and styling their hair. These patients find that typical dry shampoos are not effective and are trying Botox to help prevent buildup of sweat and oil.
The treatment is relatively simple and painless. The process involves cleansing the scalp with alcohol first, then administering small injections into the scalp and around the hairline. Most patients need around 100 to 200 units of Botox initially. The treatment takes only a few minutes and typically lasts up to 6 months.
