Pregnancy can take a toll on the body, and many expectant mothers want to pamper themselves a little so they look and feel more rested. Those who regularly receive BOTOX® injections at our Barrington med spa often ask if they can continue wrinkle-fighting treatments throughout their term. Unfortunately, the science is inconclusive around pregnancy and injectables, as few studies have been performed on pregnant women. BOTOX is a neurotoxin that relaxes facial muscles, and it’s best to err on the side of caution when using these products. For that reason, we usually suggest that our patients wait until after giving birth to resume their BOTOX sessions.
