Liquid Facelift and Pregnancy?

Fillers are not approved in pregnancy.  The risks are not known for the fetus.  Pregnancy is temporary, and I would advise waiting until you have delivered.

Liquid Facelift

It depends on what they are injecting but I would not recommend it as your face will change with pregnancy.

Most fillers and cosmetic treatments should be performed after pregnancy, as the effects of these treatments on the fetus are yet to be determined.

Can I Get a Liquid Facelift While I'm Pregnant?

If you are pregnant, we would all recommend that you have no elective cosmetic procedure. Although these products have never been studied in pregnant women, and most of us feel the risks to be negligent, we just caution on the safest side as possible and do not inject fillers or toxins knowingly in patients who are pregnant.

Liquid Facelift at the same time as pregnancy

It is not advisable to have botox or dermal fillers during your pregnancy. There are no clinical studies of women having botox or dermal fillers at the same time as there pregnancy so the full implications of a treatment are not known. There are frequent examples of women who did not realize they were pregnant and had dermal fillers or botox without any noted side effects.

I would not recommend anything while pregnant

There is no evidence that botox or fillers cause any harm, but at the same time there are no safety studies to confirm no harm will be caused.  I would let it be until after you had your baby.  Better safe than sorry

Procedures during pregnancy

One never knows what can happen with any procedure (infection, allergic reaction). So I would advise you to wait until after pregnancy and after breast feeding for any elective procedures.

Liquid Facelift and Pregnancy

Thank you for your question.

I recommend you wait until after your delivery to get a liquid facelift.  It is better safe than sorry for you and your unborn child.

To know what might be good for you later, see two or more board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have these treatments.

I hope this helps.

Liquid Facelift While Pregnant?

When it comes to pregnancy, it is better to be on the safe side. Generally, it is not advisable to undergo injectable treatments while pregnant. After your pregnancy, you will be able to discuss with your dermatologist the best liquid facelift options for your needs.

Elective treatments during pregnancy

While occasionally procedures do need to be performed during pregnancy, most physicians will limit this to procedures which are absolutely necessary.  Elective aesthetic procedures generally are not performed during pregnancy.  In the unlikely event that a procedure needs to be performed during pregnancy, it is desirable to wait until the third trimester.
