Botox and fillers

Fatwaa ID: 1908

I wanted to know can you tell me if Botox and fillers are haram halal – there’s no animal product in them it’s synthetically made. I wanted to maybe go to nursing school and become a nurse injector and wanted to know if it’ll be halal or haram money

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

Botox and fillers for beauty enhancement purposes are impermissible irrespective of their contents or ingredients. It is a form of changing the creation of Allaah Ta’aala. If there is a medical reason or need for corrective purposes, then that is a different situation which will be assessed by the scholars on a case by case basis. The job as an aesthetics nurse or plastic surgeon’s nurse in the former case will be impermissible. In the latter case, there is be a scope of permissibility.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
