    Juvederm is hyaluronic acid. It is rated an L3-no data-probably compatible. "There are no data available on the transfer of hyaluronic acid into breastmilk, but it would be minimal to nil. The repeating chains can be quite large, and therefore size would prohibit any drug that did get absorbed from transferring into the milk compartment. It would not be orally bioavailable in the infant. Therefore, hyaluronic acid is probably of no risk to a breastfed infant." (Medications and Mothers' Milk database, Dr Thomas Hale PhD).

    Botox is rated an L3-no data-probably compatible. "When used in the form of Botox, and injected properly, it is extremely unlikely to ever enter the plasma or milk compartment. A brief interruption of a few hours to ascertain that none has entered the plasma would all but eliminate any possible complications in a breastfeeding mother. Further, because this product is so large, it would have an extremely difficult time entering the milk compartment." (Medications and Mothers' Milk database, Dr Thomas Hale PhD).

      I recommend Juvederm, it is safer, you can buy Juvederm online [url][/url] for a low price and save on injections.
