In our youth-obsessed culture, a woman’s next birthday is not always a cause for celebration. Instead of candles and presents, that turn of the clock can conjure up images of wrinkles, jowls, under eye bags and sagging. But ladies don’t need to be anxious about hitting that half-century mark anymore.
According to a new report in USA Today, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has given its stamp of approval to use Botox as a treatment for crow’s feet.
Botox was approved to treat frown lines more than a decade ago, but medical practitioners have been using the drug for other cosmetic purposes, including the treatment of wrinkles that form next to aging eyes – otherwise known as “crow’s feet.”
Although Botox has 2 competitors – Dysport and Xeomin- for treating frown lines, Botox is now the first drug approved by the FDA to treat crow’s feet as well.
