Roughly one out of two American women are now removing hair from their genital/bikini area according to Multi-sponsor Surveys' Study of the Women's Intimate Care Market, although this practice is most common among young women in the United States. In this study conducted in May/June 2013 among a national sample of 600+ adult women in the United States, 80% of all 18–34-year-old women reported removal of genital/bikini hair, as did 64% of 35–49 year old women, in comparison to only 19% of women age 50+.
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.
