Botox now approved by USFDA for crow's feet.
Anti-ageing injections are now allowed for crow's feet.
If you want to minimise wrinkles, you’re in luck – today, more than ever, you have many options that can help return your skin to a version of its younger self, at least temporarily. And now the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), famous for its rigorous testing, has given the nod of approval to one of the most common cosmetic procedures: Botox for crow’s feet.
While Botox was approved in the United States in 2002 to treat frown lines between the eyebrows, the FDA announced its approval of the drug to treat crow’s feetthis week.
The treatment underwent two clinical trials involving more than 800 people to establish its safety and effectiveness for improving crow’s feet, the FDA reports. Most common side effects include eyelid edema, or swollen eyelids, the FDA said.
Botox has previously been approved for the treatment of chronic migraine headaches, underarm sweating and eyelid spasms. – AFP Relaxnews
