FDA Seal of Approval
The FDA has recently released approval for the use of Botox to treat crow’s feet or the lines at the corner of the eyes, and the cosmetic field cannot be happier about the news. This means that this prevailing anti-wrinkle superstar can now potentially be more accessible to more patients, giving more people the chance to improve their overall appearance by smoothing out the wrinkles from the corners of the eyes, taking off years from their faces.
Previously, Botox was only used to treat frown lines that form in between the eyebrows and on the forehead, but cosmetic practitioners are thrilled with the additional indication because this expands the options for patients who are seeking to achieve a more smooth, more youthful appearance by temporarily disabling the muscles at the side of the eyes from contracting, thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles in that area.
Clinical trials for this application produced results that were gathered from patients who received a placebo drug, compared to those who have been randomly assigned to receive the Botox treatment. The tests yielded promising results, demonstrating just how effective Botox was in reducing the appearance of crow’s feet from around the subjects’ eyes. At the same time, these clinical trials also established the safety of using Botox for treating crow’s feet.
