How soon after giving birth is it safe to inject Botox to the face?


I just gave birth one month ago, and am no longer breast feeding.  Is it safe to inject Botox to the face now?


Even though botulinum injections are very safe and local injections, we are always concerned about the potential of affecting the newborn even through breast feeding.

If a patient chooses to breast feed I personally would not recommend such procedures until they are finished and then they can be resumed without any risk to the baby. I am not aware of any studies addressing this but the risk is simply not worth it.

Botox injections should be fine once you have completely stopped breast feeding.
