Botox and fillers in patients with metal allergies

+3

Since neither product, botox or hyaluronic acid fillers such as juvederm or restylane contain this metal, they should be safe for you to be treated with them.

Cosmetic Botox is not harmful to inject if you have sulfite or nickel allergies. I would visit the website below for more information on common treatment issues and/or side effects.

Botox and nickel and sulfite allergy

You should be fine to have Botox with these allergies.  It is very rare to have an allergic reaction with Botox.

Botox and fillers for people with sulfite and nickel allergies

Neurotoxins like Botox and Dysport are fine to do on people with sulfite and nickel allergies. A few years back there was one filler (Hydrelle) that needed to be avoided by people who had sulfite allergies, but I believe it is now off the market. Restylane and Juvederm are fine to do.
