BOTOX AND/OR HYALURONIC ACID DURING PREGNANCY AND BREASTFEEDING?
The question is repeatedly asked whether hyaluronic acid or Botox treatment may be performed during pregnancy or while breastfeeding.
Here the answer of Dr. Rolf and Dr. Katrin Bartsch is a clear no.
As soon as pregnancy is suspected, none of the above-mentioned agents may be used. The reason for this is that Botox is a drug and hyaluronic acid is a medical device, both of which have not been tested on pregnant women and therefore may not be used. Neither of the two treatments may be used during breastfeeding. If you still want to have a treatment, you have to stop breastfeeding beforehand.
It is alarming that there are still doctors who perform these treatments during pregnancy or breastfeeding – and not only in Hollywood! Nevertheless, we strictly advise against it, because this special time belongs to the mother and the child and no risk should be taken. If a woman still wants to do something good for herself and her skin, we refer to non-invasive treatment methods, which are also offered in our clinic.
NON-INVASIVE TREATMENT METHODS AS AN ALTERNATIVE
Non-invasive treatments are becoming more and more popular and we recommend that they be performed regularly. They are ideal for all those who want to do something good for their skin and counteract the natural aging process, but do not want to or are not allowed to undergo surgery, hyaluronic acid or Botox treatment. The Aesthetics offers both the Hydrafacial and a Dermal Infusion. These are skin renewal treatments combined with exfoliation and an infusion of specific serums that permanently improve the health, texture and appearance of the skin. Thus, the skin is optimally cleansed and provided with freshness and hydration. The result is skin that looks even, fresh and vital.
Just as every person is unique, treatment methods should also be unique and individually tailored to your skin type, needs and expectations. Which treatments are right for your skin and at what intervals they should be performed, we will be happy to clarify with you in a joint consultation. This is the only way to achieve optimal results and your satisfaction, which is our top priority.
Hyaluronic acid is a so-called “filler”, it acts as a filling material that fills wrinkles.
