Dr Singh who runs his botox clinic in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, in his latest blog shares his thoughts on when you cant have botox.
The majority of time most patients will be fine to undertake botox injections, but there are certain instances when we will not carry out botox.
If you are under 18, then we will not administer any botox. The reason is the muscles are not fully developed and we want everything to be stable prior to you undertaking botox treatments.
If you are pregnant or breast feeding we will not allow you to have botox. In theory there is no danger, however it is better to be safe than sorry.
If its not suitable for you. Either because you need fillers or you dont need botox. If when you use your facial expressions and no new lines or the existing lines worsen, then botox is not suitable for you.
If you are allergic to eggs. The same protein that is found in eggs, also occurs in botox.
If you have any neuro muscular conditions, then we will not carry out any botox treatments.
If you are taking certain medications, notably antibiotics that are amino glycosides. The botox can interfere with these drugs.
The reason why we have certain contraindication to botox treatment, id that we want the procedure to be safe and you be happy with the results from the botox injections.
