Are Extended Uses FDA Approved?
Extended uses of Botox Cosmetic occur in what's termed "off-label use". FDA off-label means that the FDA has approved this product for use in specific locations of the skin, but not for this particular location. This is usually because associated costs to the company in submitting every location would be cost-prohibitive.

Whether on or "off" label, skill and experience are vital in achieving both the effects you want and achieving them safely. The power of Botox Cosmetic treatments can be substantial in the right hands.
