It is very less likely for botox to cause hair loss. Infact botox has started to be used as a hair loss treatment. Give your diet an overhaul if you're lacking vital nutrients for growth and switch to foods for healthy hair. If it's related to an illness, it can be reversed by effectively treating the underlying cause.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Yes I believe botox can cause hair loss especially around the forhead. There are Many blogs with other people correlating similar hairl loss to botox. One of the reasons I think this can happen (among many) is that if your forhead muscles are paralysed for long periods of time there will be a significant reduction in underlying surface blood flow to the upper dermis. Hair folic and are in this layer and need a good circulation of blood to stimulate constant growth of new hair cycles. So it is very likely that hair directly around muscles that have been paralysed my suffer growth and re growth during the months where circulation is cut off.
I have had Botox in forehead and immediately after a continuous twitch in my eyelid followed by hair loss in my eyebrow in the same area a couple weeks later, the twitch has settled slightly but hair in eyebrows grows back then I lose it again, is there any permanent damage to nerve in this area?
Yes it does. I did a little research on my self. Two years ago I had botox and the top of my hair started shedding. After six months the botox wore out and around 8 months I saw new hairs growing. Let me add that I had blood work, checked my thyroid and ovaries and I was completely healthy. Well around 10 months my hair my thick again! Two years after I totally forgot about this experience and I 'accidentally' went and had botox again (wanted to look good for a wedding)...well here we go again my hair started shedding again. I did blood work, checked ovaries, take no medication blah blah blah ...I came to the conclusion that its botox! Yes, it does make hair SHED! ITS POISON!
Yes I think Botox causes hair loss. I had first treatment April 2017, again August 2017, and again in December 2017. I noticed the hair had thinned on top of my head and the ends of my eyebrows weren't growing back by March 2018. I went to the doctor to get everything checked and findings were all normal. So I got a new haircut and colour and moved on with my life still- not registering the possible connection. September 2018 I had another botox treatment and sure enough about 7-8 weeks later, November 1, 2018, my hair was coming out in clumps in the shower and in the brush- it was all over my pillow too. Most of the loss was on top of my head. I started biotin, hair vitamins, and collagen powder. The hair stopped falling out about the first week of January 2019. I didn't have any weight fluctuations, don't drink much alcohol, no stressful event happened. I'm now sure Botox was the cause of the hair loss. I really wish more women were aware of this possibility. I would put up with crows feet any day than lose my hair!! I will post in the future whether the hair grows back.
How much hair falls out? I’ve just started experiencing this and I’m about to lose my mind! How long does the thinning last? Does your hair grow back to normal in time?
I, too, have been experiencing this same issue. Since the neurologists inject the Botox around my frontal hairline, I have tracing it back to the treatments as well. At 38 years old, I have no personal history of alopecia or thinning of the hair and it does not run in my family.
Has anyone here had this happen and have their hair grow back? I had Botox three times- last being June 2019. Noticed major hair loss after that, and I went back and looked at photos- ever since I started Botox my hair was thinner, worse after each treatment. Does anyone have experience like this with it growing back? Also, does anyone know of any Botox alternatives? I’m kind of sad that I can’t get Botox anymore...I wish I could find something to keep the forehead wrinkles away and give me the same effect has a Botox brow lift.
I started taking vitamins every day and it has helped it from continuing to fall out... I let up on taking them I’m going to start back I have not seen any growth back in the front I actually have a bald spot in the front.... it’s only been four months I’m hoping the more it wears off maybe my hair will grow back... this has been the worst few months of my life!!!! Please keep me updated!!!
Has anyone here had their ferritin levels checked? I have low ferritin and I’m wondering if there is a correlation between ferritin levels and Botox- because botox doesn’t seem to cause hair loss for most people- trying to figure out why it would affect certain people in this way.
