BOTOX vs gylcopyrrolate solutions
Botox works the best, however you may need up to 200 plus units, depending on the extent. Compounded solutions such as Glyco 2% lotion can help, but it is not as reliable as Botox. Botox should last between 2- 4 months. All the best,

Botox can help
Botox is safe for this use.
Sweating from Scalp
Profuse sweating from any part of the body is very uncomfortable. It ruins clothes and makes social interactions embarrassing sometimes. I have had many patients who have benefited from Botox treatment to decrease their sweating. Majority ask for underarm treatment, followed by sweating of the palms, and then by sweating from the scalp. I have seen great results that last about 6 months with treatments we've done in all these areas. Good luck!
