Botox Gains FDA Approval For Crow’s Feet

Exciting news for those of us looking to bid farewell to our crow's feet. The FDA has finally approved Botox for the "temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe lateral canthal lines (aka crow's feet)."  In the official FDA statement, which was issued earlier this week, the FDA states that Botox's safety and effectiveness were established through two clinical efficacy and safety studies. It was back in 2002 that the FDA first approved Botox for the treatment of the glabellar lines, better known as those lines on the forehead that look like the number 11 and make us look tired and angry. Botox works by paralyzing or weakening the muscles that lead to the formation of wrinkles. Botox also keeps the muscles from tightening, which makes the wrinkles on our faces less obvious. Although the FDA has only approved Botox for crow's feet and glabellar lines, Botox also produces amazing results on the forehead and the mouth area. Botox can lift and tighten those areas, giving them a more sculpted and lifted look. Botox can also miraculously reshape the face when injected into the jaw muscle, known as the masseter. Botox can also be used to help with excessive sweating and it can correct asymmetric eyebrows. The great thing about Botox is the lack of downtime (there is none) and the minimal risk of side effects.
