About "Off-label"

Extended uses of Botox Cosmetic occur in what's termed "off-label use". Does that mean those uses are illegal? Not at all! The FDA does not dictate physician choices in the use of approved products.

Who's Your Injector?

Does this mean any injector can safely inject in all these areas? That answer is a resounding no!

Skill and experience are vital in achieveing both the effects you want and achieving them safely. The beauty of Botox Cosmetic treatments can be substantial in the right hands.
