Botox: not good

Ladies, a word of advice in case you are planning to freeze your face during pregnancy:

Don't do it.

According to The Cosmetic Physicians Society of Australasia (CPSA), the use of Botox during pregnancy or while breastfeeding should be strictly prohibited due to the high risk of birth defects. The call for plastic surgeons to follow these guidelines strictly comes on the heels of a case of a woman who injected a similar anti-wrinkle toxin into her face during the first month of pregnancy. Her baby was born blind and deaf.

How important is a wrinkle-free face?
