If you’re a fitness junky, you’re probably tired of hairline sweat ruining your good hair days. You shouldn’t have to choose between exercise and good hair — and now you don’t.
At Beauty Boost, we have a surprising treatment to help you reduce hairline sweat: Botox! Injecting Botox in the scalp blocks communication between the nerves and sweat glands. This safe, effective treatment just might change your life.
With Botox, you can make the most out of your good hair days, go longer between washes, and beat the summer heat! Let’s talk about how Botox saves the day from a sweaty hairline.
How Botox Sweat Prevention Works
When we inject Botox into the scalp, it blocks communication between nerves and sweat glands. This is a good thing for sweat prevention because it means your sweat glands effectively shut down.
Your Botox sweat prevention treatment will target the sweat and oil glands in your hair follicles. The treatment will reduce sweat and oil production in the surrounding area. After it takes effect, you will find that your hair remains clean and dry significantly longer.
With this treatment, you can show off your good hair days even on warm days when you exercise. You can also go longer between washes and avoid over-shampooing and over-styling your hair. You’ll look better than ever in the summer heat.
We’ve known that Botox is an effective treatment for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) for a while. The treatment has been FDA-approved since 2004. It’s not just for your scalp – we can also use it to treat excessive sweating in the armpits and other parts of the body.
How does the botox sweat treatment affect hair?
Botox will not do anything to detract from your hair growth. In fact, it is being tested as a treatment for hair loss. If anything, your Botox sweat prevention treatment could result in thicker, fuller hair!

Botox treatments are incredibly quick, simple, and painless. We will cleanse your scalp, then administer small injections into your scalp and hairline area. For most patients, we use about 100-200 Botox units, although it varies from person to person. The whole process usually takes just 10 to 15 minutes.
After your treatment, we recommend that you wait a few hours to work out. You should also wait a few days to get your next hair blowout. However, you shouldn’t need to worry about side effects — most patients can easily tolerate Botox.
This treatment comes at a price ($1250 at Beauty Boost, as of this writing), but it’s well worth it to many patients. Botox sweat prevention treatment can last a long time – often as long as six months! You can get treatments twice a year or as often as needed to maintain your results.
For patients who work out a lot or experience hyperhidrosis, scalp Botox can be an excellent treatment. You can do intense workouts and keep your hair dry.
However, we do not recommend this treatment for patients with certain dermatologic conditions. It’s always a good idea to talk to a medical provider who is aware of your medical history before going forward with a Botox treatment.
