Botox, Pregnancy and Breastfeeding

pregnancy and breastfeedingLet’s get straight to the point. If you are pregnant or a nursing mother, then the best advice is to stay away from botox until after breastfeeding has finished. 

Botox is after all a medication, so although there is a lack of evidence about the dangers of using it during pregnancy, its use is not advised by the manufacturers or by doctors. It is simply best to err on the side of caution just for the months affected.

This can be frustrating for tired mums or mums to be, who are used to relying on the help of cosmetic injections to stay and fresh-faced. They may be concerned that  with the added stress and fatigue that pregnancy and motherhood can cause, faces can look especially tired without the injections.

However, there are advantages to being pregnant. During the pregnancy, women tend to retain more water which hydrates and plumps the skin to make fine lines less visible, giving a healthy glow.

While botox may be inadvisable, modern aesthetic medicine has an array of products and treatments to choose from.
