I have been a Botox patient for 4 years now. But am now pregnant and have not been able to receive my injections for 4 months now.

My brow lines and furrow lines are back with a vengance. What other topical products or topical procedures are out there to help me in the interim until I can return to Botox?

Hi, 1 week ago I found out I was 12 weeks pregnant. 2 weeks ago I had botox injections on my face: eye and forehead. I did not know I was pregnant!Can a medical professional help me to understand the consequences? I have read many things about low birth weight and deformity's in rabbits and mice.. I'm really worried about my situation!! Thanks.

Hi Merrill, My office manager recently had an Intraceutical O2 Infusion Facial and her anti-Botox husband accused her of having had Botox injections. So find out where you can get the treatment. It acts by hydrating your face. Congratulations on your pregnancy and wish you a healthy, happy baby. Dr. P
