I am currently breastfeeding my 9 month old baby and was wanting to get Botox in my frown line only. Is this OK or not?

Botox and Breast Feeding
The safety and efficacy of Botox has not been tested in women who are pregnant or breast feeding
Thank you for your question sarahraquel. Botox is a purified protein used to address wrinkles associated with facial expression such as those between the brows seen when one frowns. The safety and efficacy of Botox has not been tested in women who are pregnant or breast feeding. So unfortunately we do not know the answer to your question. In such situations I recommend to my patients to err on the side of safety and wait until they are no longer breast feeding before undergoing such cosmetic treatments. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
Deep Hydration Can Fake the Effects of Botox for Pregnant and Breast-Feeding Women
Botox has not been studied for safety in pregnant or lactating mothers, so the conventional wisdom at this point is to hold off until you are finished breastfeeding. In the meantime, try a deeply hydrating serum to smooth and soften lines.
