There is no association that i know of between vitiligo and botox. I suggest you see an expert for treatment. Best, Dr. Emer.
Can a person with Vitiligo have botox
Having vitiligo is not a contraindication to getting botox treatments. Botox is a purified protein injected into muscles to temporarily relax them. Having juvederm injections should be fine but make sure you see a board certified plastic surgeon for the treatment.
Botox/Fillers with Vitiligo
I don't believe there is any problem with having Botox or fillers if someone has Vitiligo. In fact I think most doctors would feel very comfortable, including myself in giving the injections of Botox or Fillers to patients with vitiligo. In general, physicians will screen for a history of neuromuscular disorders and autoimmune diseases.
Please consult a professional in your area.
Thank you for your question faren.de. Botox is a purified protein used to
address wrinkles associated with facial expression. Vitiligo is a condition characterized by the appearance of patches on the skin with pigment loss. Vitiligo is not a contraindication to receiving Botox injections. But just how insults such as injections can trigger hyperpigmentation on the skin, there is the possibility of depigmentation. Please consult with a doctor for specific
recommendations. Good luck!
Thank you for asking about your Botox injections.
- Botox should not affect your vitiligo - it is injected under the skin, not into it.
- Since vitiligo however is an auto-immune disorder and it is possible skin injections of any kind might trigger loss of pigmentation, I suggest you see a plastic surgeon for treatment and -
- Have an initial test treatment to be sure -
- A good place would be the upper forehead where your hair could hide an unwanted reaction.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
