Why scalp Botox? — This is popular amongst women who are into fitness or sweat quite often along the hairline/head. Botox controls sweating, and receiving it on the scalp also helps to preserve the hair/blowouts. Have you ever heard women joke around about how they schedule their workouts around their Dry Bar schedule? This is the solution. Scalp Botox is great for women who want to go straight from the gym to running errands. It simply preserves blowouts because it helps to reduce sweat gland excretions.
Is scalp Botox painful? — No. We can use ice, and just tiny insulin needles are used.
When does it kick in and how long does it last? — Scalp Botox starts to kick in in about 3-4 days. Typically, by the end of one week after receiving Botox, you usually have a pretty good idea of how effective it will be. It can continue to evolve for two full weeks, so that’s when we would set up a follow-up appointment to evaluate the progress.
How long do you have to wait after the Botox injections if you have a hair appointment or a blowout? — Usually, we would have the person wait about three days.
How much would this cost someone? — It obviously takes more units of Botox because of the larger area that will have to be covered. The average client will need 100 units of Botox. Botox is sold in units, and the price varies by office. We charge currently $8 per unit of Botox for scalp treatments which would cost approximately $800.
