Craniofacial sweating (excessive sweating from the scalp and face) is effectively treated with sweat stopping botulinum injections, where the scalp and forehead can be injected and lead to a very significant reduction in sweating lasting 3-4 months.  This treatment is performed by Dr Tony Caccetta at Perth Dermatology Clinic. Medicare rebates are not currently available for this treatment, however Private Health Insurance rebates may be sought.

Oral anticholinergic medications may also improve craniofacial hyperhidrosis, however can be limited by side effects or their inappropriateness for long term use.
