Botox and Babies

With all of the controversy in the air about the safety of Botox, many pregnant women are deciding to stop getting their dermal fillers until after they've had their babies. This is a wise choice for a number of different reasons. First of all, Botox is believed to be safe but you can never be too cautious when it comes to your baby's health. Secondly, since you're going to gain weight in your face during the pregnancy, you're naturally going to get some of the benefits of Botox without having to get the injections. Another important thing to note is that you're not going to lose the benefits of Botox just because you quit it for a few months. Even without the baby fat boost, your face should hold the benefit of the treatments for several months. Women should wait about a month after giving birth to resume Botox treatments according to this recent article on the issue. Of course, holding off longer if you're breastfeeding makes sense. Talk to your doctor about the details. Question of the Day: How soon after finding out about a pregnancy would you stop the Botox? photo link
