PDcosmetics - Botox & Fillers during Pregnancy

Botox and Dermal Fillers during and after Pregnancy

Jul 20, 2020

Pregnancy is a wonderful time. However, for the woman’s organism, it is also a stressful situation with a lot of unpleasant consequences. Often, the need for procedures in pregnant women is caused not by a whim, but by a deterioration in the condition of the skin and hair. During the expectation of a child, the hormonal disruptions and rearrangements happen inside the body, provoking problems with appearance: hair loss, wrinkles, dehydration, dull complexion, etc. In their deep despair, future mothers hurry up to their doctors for beauty procedures. But is it safe to do any injections during this period?

Botox and Pregnancy

Botox is an FDA approved remedy, which is successfully used in the therapy and cosmetology. The number of problems it can solve is endless, starting with smoothing out the wrinkles and ending up with treating cerebral palsy.

At the base of this drug lies diluted and purified botulinum toxin in a very deconcentrated dosage with a local radius of action. The principle of its effect is based on the toxin’s ability to deactivate the nerve endings, preventing them from receiving the signals and contracting the muscles. As a result, the muscles relax, the tension in the tissues decreases, and mimic wrinkles disappear. Using Botox before pregnancy is quite a normal thing, and if there are no other contraindications, the woman is free to do it. But what about during pregnancy?

Allergan, the manufacturer of Botox, as well as other manufacturers of the botulinum A-type drugs, such as Xeomin and Dysport, note at the packages that pregnancy and lactation are one of the main contraindications for the injections. It means that it is forbidden to use Botox during pregnancy. Why?

The first reason is that botulinum has got the ability to migrate from the site of injection to the neighboring areas. There are concerns that it may reach the fetus, smooth wrinkles on the baby’s face, and other scary theories. None of them is proven. However, the effect botulinum toxin may have on the child’s organism is not investigated to the full extent, and it is too early to make any conclusions. To avoid any risks, the manufacturers themselves, the ministry of health, and doctors forbid using Botox during pregnancy.

For all other cases, if you are a certified specialist, you may order Botox online at our website PDCosmetics.com. We also offer wholesale Botox options with one of the best Botox cost per unit wholesale on the market.
We have found out that during pregnancy, the woman cannot improve her appearance with the help of Botox. Okay, what about when she delivers the baby? Everything depends on the fact whether the mother feeds her child with her breasts or not. During the lactation period, Botox injections after pregnancy are also forbidden for the same reason – the effect of botulinum on the child’s organism is not fully investigated.

Dermal Fillers and Pregnancy

Modern remedies of this kind consist mainly of hyaluronic acid (Belotero, Desirial, Juvederm, etc.) or calcium hydroxide (Radiesse), materials that are very close to the ones found in the skin tissues. They are believed to be one of the safest means in cosmetology, and dermal filler before pregnancy is totally safe to use. Unlike Botox, it does not migrate, does not affect the nerves, and completely wears out from the organism in the next nine to twenty-four months. It does have minor side effects, which include:

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Bruising
  • Itching
  • Sensitivity

All of these are local manifestations, a reaction of the body on the process of injection, and disappear within the next few hours (maximum, 2 days). Here we come to the most interesting question: is it safe to inject dermal fillers with hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxide during and after pregnancy? Analogically to the case with Botox, there is no enough information on how it may influence the child’s organism. Thus, the doctors can no perform such injections to pregnant women.

Final word

Modern medicine cannot answer the question: is Botox safe during pregnancy? The same concerns dermal fillers. Perhaps, pregnant women are already beautiful in their best way and do not need any improvements. If the woman insists on some beauty procedure, the cosmetologist may offer her peeling or some kind of massage. See our guide on how to safely buy Botox online.
