7 Off-Label Cosmetic Treatments Using Botox

Botox, known for its wrinkle-reducing properties, is a versatile cosmetic treatment that can be used off-label for various purposes beyond its FDA-approved indications. From addressing bunny lines to enhancing neck rejuvenation, Botox offers a range of options for achieving subtle yet effective cosmetic improvements. Here are seven off-label cosmetic treatments using Botox that we offer at Creative Facial Aesthetics in NYC.

1. Bunny Lines

Bunny lines refer to the fine lines that appear on the sides of the nose when smiling or scrunching the nose. Botox injections can be used to relax the muscles responsible for these lines, resulting in a smoother appearance. By targeting the nasalis muscle, Botox helps minimize bunny lines and create a more youthful and relaxed expression.

2. Masseter Reduction

The masseter muscles, located along the jawline, can become overdeveloped due to factors like teeth grinding or jaw clenching. This can result in a square or bulky jawline, which may be undesirable for some individuals. Botox injections into the masseter muscles can help relax and slim the jawline, creating a more oval or heart-shaped facial contour.

3. Liquid Brow Lift

A liquid brow lift involves using Botox injections to lift and shape the eyebrows, creating a more lifted and rejuvenated appearance. By targeting specific muscles around the eyes, Botox can elevate the brows and open up the eyes, reducing the appearance of hooded eyelids and wrinkles in the forehead area.

4. Nasal Tip Lift

Botox injections can be used off-label to lift and refine the nasal tip, creating a more upturned and aesthetically pleasing appearance. By injecting Botox into the depressor septi nasi muscle, which pulls the nasal tip downward, the nose can be lifted slightly, resulting in a more refined and balanced nasal contour.

5. Lip Flip

A lip flip is a non-surgical procedure that uses Botox injections to enhance the appearance of the upper lip. By injecting Botox into the muscles around the upper lip, the lip’s natural curling motion can be enhanced, resulting in a fuller and more defined upper lip without the need for dermal fillers.

6. Neck Rejuvenation

Botox injections can be used off-label to address pronounced vertical cords and horizontal lines in the neck area. By targeting the platysma muscle, which can cause vertical bands or “turkey neck,” Botox can help smooth out neck cords and lines and create a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

7. Chin Dimples

Botox injections can be used to soften the appearance of chin dimples or an “orange peel” appearance. By relaxing the mentalis muscle, which is responsible for chin movement, Botox can help reduce the depth of chin dimples and create a smoother and more even chin contour.

While these off-label uses of Botox can be effective for cosmetic enhancement, it is essential to seek treatment from a qualified and experienced injector who understands facial anatomy and the proper administration of Botox injections, like our injectors at Creative Facial Aesthetics.

I've been to Michele for a numbers of years for various procedures and she's fantastic, a true artist. Michele never pushes procedures, always takes her time and the final results are superb. I'm in the entertainment industry and need to look my best. I'm thrilled that she's now moved offices and I was able to track her down, I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else. My advice, put yourself in her hands and trust and you'll be amazed at the results: not only is her work exceptional but very natural.

Robin M.

I have gone to Michele for more than 10 years, following her to her new location. It's so long ago but I think I heard of her expertise in a magazine article or blog. I trust Michele completely and have done botox and filler on many occasions during this time, The results are always perfect, so natural.

Scott S.

As someone who was very hesitant to try Botox, as I am a performer/dancer and expression is a huge part of my career, I could not be happier with the treatments I have received from Michele! I have gotten so many "You look so young!" and "You skin looks incredible!". Michele took her time to explain to me the benefits of different treatments and was very responsive to my concerns. I have recommended friends to her who are so grateful to me! As a person who came to aesthetic medicine through an incredible journey of her own, Michele is unparalleled in her compassion, skill and knowledge. Go see her! You will be in the BEST hands!

Melodie D.

Michele Rivard is the best I have had for my injections of botox and fillers. She is meticulous, exact and knows what needs to be done to make my face be the best it can be. I highly recommend her for whatever you want done and you will be happy with the results.

Meredith G.

Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

Jackie C.

Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Kaitlin M.

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Leah G.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
