When can I get botox after a pregnancy?

I gave birth 4 weeks ago, and I was wondering if a botox injection would pose any health risks to myself or my baby through my breastfeeding. My instinct was to assume that a botox treatment would only affect the muscles it targets, but someone raised a valid concern regarding breastfeeding and I really didn't want to take any risks. Any help on the matter would be much appreciated.

In my heart of hearts I think you would be fine. However, to be safe - and just to make sure there's no problem - I'd recommend waiting until breastfeeding is over to proceed with Botox therapy.
