To date, there have been no issues related to the use of BOTOX and dermal fillers in people with gluten sensitivity. I wouldn't worry about this.

I have never heard of any issues regarding celiac disease and injectables. My own girlfriend has Celiac Disease. She has had Botox, Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, & Sculptra without problem. I think you're good to go.
