Sonia Batra says she doesn't think there is a safe way to inject facial fillers during pregnancy. None of them have been studied in pregnant women, so they are considered to be category C, which means that they do not know that they cause harm, but there are no studies that show that they are safe. Should you use injectables such as Botox or dermal fillers during pregnancy, or can you? It's a common question at Parson Skin Center, as pregnant women are eager to make sure their baby is safe. Injectables and dermal fillers are not approved by the FDA for pregnant or breastfeeding women.
However, if you received Botox or dermal fillers early in the first trimester before you knew you were pregnant or because of the lack of FDA approval, don't worry. These cosmetic treatments are very unlikely to affect you or your baby in any way. The truth is that nobody knows much about the combination of Botox and pregnancy. Doctors discuss a question sent on Facebook by a viewer who wants to get facial fillers but is also trying to get pregnant.
Most dermal fillers last 6 to 12 months, but dissolving the filler before that time is also an option. In addition, many pregnant women already have enlarged lips, so opting for dermal fillers is usually not a good idea, especially if you prefer fillers that are durable.
