Is Dermal Filler During Pregnancy Safe, or Should I Wait? 

Pregnancy glow is one of the best parts of having a baby. Your skin is radiant and your face is full and youthful!

That’s what they say, anyway. Maybe you’re not feeling or seeing the glow with your pregnancy, and it feels like you could use a little boost. Let’s talk about dermal filler during pregnancy. Is it safe, or should you wait?

Dermal fillers such as Juvéderm are made with synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA), which your body produces naturally. As you age, your natural HA production slows down.

That’s when your cheeks look less defined, dark under-eye circles start to appear, and your lips are less full. When dermal fillers are injected into places like your lips and cheeks, it makes them plump, smooth, and naturally youthful-looking. 

So, Is Dermal Filler During Pregnancy Safe? 

Your hormones fluctuate wildly during pregnancy and post-partum, and cause variations in blood-flow. These variations in blood-flow lead to a lot of swelling, which may cause your fillers to stray from their designated areas.  

Ultimately, it’s best to wait until you are done breastfeeding and completely healed after pregnancy to get dermal fillers. Little research has been done on the effects it could have on your baby, so it’s better safe than sorry, avoiding dermal filler during pregnancy. 

But, There’s Great News! 

There are so many other ways to pamper yourself during pregnancy. Microneedling and facials are two great ways to boost your pregnancy glow. Both are non-invasive and completely safe during pregnancy. They work well together, and are an excellent way to give pregnancy acne the boot!
