6 Surprising Uses for Injectables
Typically, people seek treatments with injectables and fillers to reduce facial wrinkles and restore the skin’s volume that is lost to aging. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the number of minimally invasive cosmetic procedures (using with Botox and fillers), has risen 180% since 2000. There has also been a 40.6% increase in injectables being administered over the last 5 years.
Most of us think of injectables and fillers being strictly for certain areas of the face and perhaps the neck, but did you know that they can be used in different areas of our body? Many doctors use injectables products off-label, meaning that they use them for a purpose that differs from their FDA-approved uses. However, it turns out that injectables and fillers have been used successfully and safely to reduce wrinkles in low-volume areas of the temples, earlobes, knees, and hands.
