Botox, Juvaderm and Hashimoto’s Disease

Question

Cosmetic question – I am contemplating botox and/or juvaderm for a very deep crease between my eyes, old age frown line but a forehead injury has also made the muscle there thicker and deeper. Has anyone had botox or juvaderm without any problems? I’m reading mixed reviews online that it can trigger further autoimmune issues and I will not risk that. Some have said they were fine.

  1. I work in a derm office…not a good idea. The last thing we need is to put foreign substance in our bodies.

  2. i have had both with no issues

  3. No issues

  4. I have and have no problems at all. I see my dermatologist, who is also a cosmetic dermatologist.

  5. I managed a med spa, most doctors will not use a dermal filler in the glabellar lines. Dysport is the best product to treat that area and you would need 50 units.

  6. Botox is botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin, produced from clostridium botulinum bacteria, that blocks the nerve signals for the muscles to contract around the injection site. Just based on what I know about how immune cells generally work in response to a bacterial pathogen, I personally wouldn’t risk the increase in inflammation that will likely persist the duration of the effectiveness of the injection (3-4 months). However, the immune response bit is just my opinion and speculative, not based on actual research. Good luck with your decision!

  8. I figure if I’m damn near half dying at 34, I’m going out with a bang! 😜\n\nI say that joking, but serious. It’s nonstop problems, so I figure I’ll look better feeling bad.

  9. Wow I have never heard of such a thing, I have never had one issue treating patients with Dysport or Botox for that matter, she must have had an allergic reaction, which she would probably have the same expierience with Botox. I think it was probably the medical provider not knowing what he or she was doing, it is part art and science and every face is different.

  10. She FREAKED out crying. I have photos bit can’t post them without her permission.

  11. Also, if you google it, you’ll see it can happen, with that and Botox. It’s not just dysport it can happen with.
    She googled and freaked more as it can even be irreversible.

  12. Have had Botox and selphyl. The latter is taking your own blood putting it in a centrifuge, taking just the platelets and having them injected into your face. It’s natural way of having your own body create collagen.

  13. I’ve never heard of selphyl. I’ll have to google!!

  14. I’ve had botox (forehead) and no issues.
