If you suffer from excessive head sweating (craniofacial hyperhidrosis), you are not the only one. The condition can manifest as excessive sweating off the neck, scalp, or head, or any of these areas combined. Trying to hide excessive head sweating is not an easy task and often proves to be time consuming and ineffective.
There are clinical grade and prescription antiperspirants available for facial sweating (facial hyperhidrosis) which may stop excessive sweating when they are put on the face. But it may prove useful to have Botox treatments in those cases where the origin point of the issue is within a small space.
Botox is popular often used for aesthetic purposes such as for the smoothing of lines and wrinkles, but is becoming more and more popular for other medical and aesthetic purposes. Botox works in small areas with injections that are made in a target area where the toxin will paralyze specific sweat glands. The effects of Botox are impermanent and further injections are required, but many patients find the overall outcome and resulting confidence they experience to be well worth their time.
Treatment for head sweating by using antiperspirants alone be difficult, especially if you have a full head of hair that, which an obstacle for successful treatment. If you don’t have a problem shaving off you hair, prescribed antiperspirants may be a reasonable option for you. However, it is not for many.
