Can I get Dysport injections during pregnancy or breastfeeding?

The use of Dysport (and other botulinum toxin type A injectables) during pregnancy and breastfeeding is generally not recommended. The safety of using Dysport in pregnant or breastfeeding individuals has not been extensively studied, and there is limited data available on its effects during these periods.

  • Dysport works by temporarily relaxing muscles, and its effects can potentially spread beyond the intended treatment area. Because of this, there is a theoretical risk that it could affect other muscles in the body or cross the placenta during pregnancy.
  • To err on the side of caution, most healthcare professionals advise against undergoing Dysport injections while pregnant or breastfeeding. It is essential to prioritize the health and safety of both the mother and the baby during these periods.
  • If you are considering Dysport treatment and are pregnant or breastfeeding, it’s essential to discuss your situation with your obstetrician or primary healthcare provider. They can provide personalized advice based on your medical history and individual circumstances.
  • In any case, it is crucial to avoid self-administering any cosmetic treatments and to consult with a qualified healthcare professional before undergoing any cosmetic procedures during pregnancy or while breastfeeding.
