    Exclamation CPT for Botox for hyperhidrosis

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am having trouble trying to figure out what CPT codes to use for botox injections for Hyperhidrosis in our patients. I know the HCPCS code is
    J0585. But the question is do I use
    64614-chemical denervation of muscles, extremity(s) and/or truck muscle(s)
    64650-chemical denervation of eccrine glands

    Keep in mind this is for excessive sweating....Please help. what are other dermatologist using??

    64650 - "The physician uses a chemical to destroy the nerves of some of the sweat glands under both arms. This treatment is commonly used to treat excessive sweating."
