Botox for forehead hyperhidrosis
Botox works fantastically well for excessive forehead sweating. For most individuals 50 units (1 phial) is usually more than enough. Please go to an experienced injector who will also provide complimentary top up if necessary.
Botox for excess sweating in the hairline
Thank you for your question Bareface. Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a common condition that is treated with Botox. It is most commonly used in the underarms, palms, and soles. In these cases 50 units are used per side. I have never treated hyperhidrosis in the hairline. Likely more than the hairline will need to be treated (for example the scalp) as sweating occurs there too. But if I had a patient request this treatment, 50 units should be a good start. I have my patients return two weeks after a treatment to assess their results. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
