Is it permissible to administer Botox injections on the face and lip fillers as is the current trend amongst cosmetic dentists?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askmufti.co.za

Q: Is it permissible to administer Botox injections on the face and lip fillers as is the current trend amongst cosmetic dentists?

A: Botox contains human albumin that is derived from human blood. This is according to the manufacturers of Botox. Details can be found on their website. This ingredient will make the use of Botox Haraam.

Secondly, the use of Botox is not for a major sickness, but just for the temporary removal of frown lines, etc. This does not warrant the use of a medication with a Haraam ingredient.

Allah Ta’aala knows best.
