Did you know that some of the most popular cosmetic treatments are off-label?
The term "under the radar injectable use" might be scary, but these are safe practices, agreed upon by the medical community.
Fillers and Botox in particular have such flexible use, that doctors are finding new uses for them again and again. Think of them as safe, all purpose tools.
So what sorts of treatments are they popular for?
Use 1: Getting Rid of Wrinkles
Neurotoxins, like Botox, can get rid of wrinkles in your chin. As everyone knows, Botox works by blocking signals from nerves that tell your face to tense up.
In the same way that you can use Botox to relax your forehead to get rid of those frowning wrinkles, they can be just as useful for your chin.
Meanwhile, you can even get rid of wrinkles on your knees and elbows!
Don’t like that crepey look? Inject some filler into it, and get those smooth knees and elbows.
Use 2: Plump Up the Volume
They’re called fillers for a reason. They “fill in” hollow parts of the body for all sorts of purposes.
And while they’re often used for joints or maybe making your lips look full, they can even be used on your temple or your ear lobe!
The signs that make a person look aged are often subtle. While we focus on forehead wrinkles, these other little areas add up.
If your temple hollows out, or your ear lobe starts to droop, people definitely notice.
They might not be able to pick out what it is, but you’ll definitely look aged. Fillers are great for “filling in,” plumping and adding structure to these regions.
Use 3: Getting Rid of Blemishes and Dimples
If there’s anything people dislike the look of, it’s cellulite. Very fit people can obsess over blemishes and dimples, and fillers--like Sculptra--are great for reducing their size.
