Can I Receive Dysport Injections When Trying to Get Pregnant?

When trying to conceive, it is important to be aware of the potential risks associated with certain treatments. Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are all neuromodulators, or neurotoxins, formed from the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. While these treatments are generally safe and effective for reducing wrinkles and fine lines, they may pose a risk to a developing fetus. Doctors recommend postponing the use of Botox while trying to conceive.

Most fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which is a sugar gel found naturally in joints. If there are remnants from months ago in the system, Dr. Batra says it probably won't affect the baby's health. However, if you're actively trying to get pregnant, it is best to avoid injecting foreign objects into your body during those first two weeks when your baby's organs are forming.

If a patient becomes pregnant while Dysport is still in her system, it is important to consult with a doctor about the potential risks. I received Dysport injections a month before conceiving and was unaware of the risks before receiving the injections. I am 19 weeks pregnant and had received a vial full of Dysport in my jaw muscles to slim my face during the second or third week of gestation without knowing that I was pregnant.It is important to be aware of the potential risks associated with receiving Dysport injections when trying to get pregnant. While there may not be any immediate effects on the baby's health, it is best to consult with a doctor before receiving any treatments.
