Expert Physicians Use BOTOX® for a Surprising Number of Miraculous Cosmetic Results, Jaw Reduction, Gummy Smile Correction, Neck Bands and More

BOTOX® treatment involves the safe injection of a prescription neuromodulator, a medication that is formulated with a very small, carefully regulated amount of the botulinum toxin. The treatment is FDA-approved for several forms of cosmetic and medical treatments, including reducing facial wrinkles, chronic migraines and severe underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis). However, there are also a number of emerging, off-label treatments using BOTOX®.

Are Off-Label BOTOX® Treatments Safe?

Off-label use of FDA-approved medications is legal, and a lack of FDA approval may indicate a lack of scientific research, not safety concerns. An estimated 1 in 5 prescriptions in the U.S. is written off-label. For medically qualified patients, off-label BOTOX® use is likely safe when injections are prescribed and administered by an experienced physician.

4 Surprising Advanced Applications of BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatments

Individual results of cosmetic treatments may vary. However, expert physicians have established a broad number of ways that BOTOX® is being used for highly effective treatment. In the broader medical field, neuromodulator treatments are being researched and used as effective solutions for a broad variety of diagnoses.

Patients considering BOTOX® should seek an expert physician who is qualified and experienced in both approved and off-label applications of neuromodulator injection in order to achieve the most satisfactory outcomes from advanced treatment.

1. BOTOX® for Neck Bands

BOTOX® can be used to target platysmal bands or vertical neck bands and “necklace lines,” or horizontal wrinkles that appear to circle the neck. Neckband treatment works in similar ways to BOTOX® treatment for facial wrinkles, by temporarily relaxing the muscles and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and creating a smoother, more youthful appearance. Depending on the size and strength of the muscles causing the targeted wrinkles and patient goals, results may last 2-5 months.

2. BOTOX® for Gummy Smile Reduction

By targeting the muscles that elevate the upper lip when a patient smiles, a small amount of BOTOX® can be used to reduce the appearance of a gummy smile. The amount of gum visible when a patient smiles can be targeted without affecting other facial expressions for an estimated period of 4-6 months.

3. BOTOX® for Jaw Reduction

BOTOX® injections can be used to target the masseter, a facial muscle at the outside corners of the jaw that may create a square appearance or sharp lines around the jaw. This advanced BOTOX® technique can create the appearance of a softer jawline, resulting in improved facial proportions, for 4-6 months.

4.  BOTOX® for Hyperhidrosis of Palms and Other Areas

BOTOX® is now FDA approved for treatment of primary axillary hyperhidrosis but it can be safely and effectively used for hyperhidrosis of other areas off-label. If topical treatments for excessive sweating on the hands or under the feet has not yielded satisfactory results, patients may qualify for BOTOX® treatments to reduce overactive sweat glands. A physician may prescribe an individualized amount of BOTOX® and perform injections into the areas affected by hyperhidrosis. This medical treatment may last 5-6 months.

Is Off-Label BOTOX® Treatment Right for You?

With any type of cosmetic treatment, individual results may vary. However, patients who are hoping to achieve cosmetic or medical results from an off-label use of BOTOX® injections may feel encouraged by the drug’s safety and effectiveness in applications, when it is prescribed and used by an expert physician.

Ultimately, an expert consultation with a licensed physician is the only effective way to determine whether BOTOX® or another form of non-invasive cosmetic treatment is most suitable for your individual goals. When used alone or with other injectable or non-invasive therapies, the correct amount of BOTOX® applied with expert precision could significantly improve your satisfaction with facial contours, wrinkles or hyperhidrosis.

With any cosmetic treatment, selecting a licensed, experienced physician can improve the quality of results.
