Botox for Hair and Scalp

botox for scalp

If you’re thinking why on earth would someone inject Botox into their scalp, we have an answer: craniofacial hyperhidrosis. More specifically, this is a term for excessive or overactive sweating from scalp, face, or head. Botox can help prevent overacting scalp sweating on a temporary basis.

Other women are using Botox injections in their scalp to minimize sweating in order to keep their hair looking good. It’s quite an indulgence to get the entire scalp done–over 100 units of Botox–but is it really surprising considering what this cosmetic injectable can do?

Botox is ranked as the #1 nonsurgical cosmetic treatment in the United States. There were over 5 million Botox treatments performed in the U.S. alone last year. Botox is most commonly known for it’s anti-aging abilities–ridding fine lines, erasing crow’s feet, and creating a youthful appearance. But Botox also has a variety of other uses that you may not have heard of, too.
