Brief Answer:
Wait for four months.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
It is best to wait four months after having Botox before trying to get pregnant. There are no studies indicating the safety or harmful effects of Botox during pregnancy or on conception. But it is best to wait till the major effects of botox wean off.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
