Scalp and neck hyperhidrosis. How many units of botox is needed for those areas to stop the sweating?

How many units?
Thanks for this question. I agree with most other comments and suggest 1 to 2 vials of Botox for treatment of hyperhydrosis of the head and neck. For your underarm, you may also consider MiraDry which reduces sweating by 75% to 80% in one treatment.
Treatment of sweaty skin with Botox
Thank you for sharing your question. You would probably require 1 to 2 vials (100-200 units) of Botox to treat the entire forehead and neck for hyperhirosis. See an expert injector for evaluation and treatment. Good luck,
Typically we treat the underarms the most for this condition and it takes anywhere from 30-50 units on each side (80-100 total) to give the best results. I would guess that it should take roughly the same for the scalp, although this will depend on the severity of the condition.

The exact dosing is hard to say. I would just be guessing but about 100 for the scalp. The neck you must be careful because placing too much there can lead to breathing and swallowing problems. I wouldn't place more than 50 units in the neck. Infini is used for axillary hyperhidrosis and might be beneficial in these areas.
Botox for hyperhidrosis
Thank you for your question Sundus89. Botox is a purified protein used to address wrinkles associated with facial expression. It can also be used in other areas for hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating. The most common areas of treatment with Botox for hyperhidrosis are the underarms, palms of the hands, and soles of the feet. Typically 50 units of Botox is used per side for these areas. For larger areas, a proportionally higher dose is required. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
