Botox Benefits

Botox cosmetic treatment is based on botulinum toxin, which was discovered nearly a hundred years ago as one of the most powerful biological agents known to science. Scientists spent decades to research and identify how Botox could be used to address various functional and aesthetic anomalies in human beings without the need for cosmetic surgery or other invasive procedures. Ever since Botox was approved by the FDA in 2002 as a cosmetic treatment to reduce frown lines between the brows, it has continued to be the leading non-surgical anti-aging treatment around the world.

She will determine the right candidate for Botox, and provide this treatment in a conservative manner to achieve the best possible outcomes in a safe environment.

The Outcome You Desire

With the recent approval of Botox for cosmetic treatment of crow’s feet around the eyes, the applicability of Botox has now extended to reduce more facial lines and wrinkles on the face. Botox treatment for reduction of crow’s feet can make the eyes appear rejuvenated and rested, and the patient can achieve a more youthful looking facial appearance.

How does Botox Work?

Botox uses botulinum neurotoxin, which works on the principle of creating a blockage of communication between the nerve and the targeted muscle. The medication is injected in tiny quantities with the help of fine needles directly into the targeted muscle. The overactive muscle that is causing the wrinkles goes into a state of temporary paralysis as soon as the Botox medication is injected.

This results in relaxation of the muscle, and the wrinkle on the skin surface fades away or disappears entirely. The results of the treatment can last for up to six months, and patients who are not keen to go for facial cosmetic surgery may choose Botox as an effective alternative.

FDA Approval

The FDA has already approved Botox for the cosmetic treatment of frown lines on the forehead. The treatment is also approved for correcting several medical conditions such as involuntary eyelid twitching, excessive perspiration and chronic migraines. Now the FDA has officially approved Botox for cosmetic treatment of crow’s feet. FDA states that Botox is an effective temporary treatment to minimize wrinkles and fine lines that may form around aging eyes.

The manufacturer of Botox, Allergan, Inc. of Irvine, CA conducted an extensive study involving two large groups of adult participants to demonstrate the effectiveness of Botox for crow’s feet. The study assigned a randomly chosen group of 833 adults to receive the Botox treatment for crow’s feet. Conspicuous reduction in the appearance of crow’s feet was noticeable in the treated group when compared to the other group that did not receive the treatment.

Tremendous Work

Crow’s feet or lateral canthal lines refer to the fine lines that radiate outwards from the far outer corners of the eyes.
