Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) September 20, 2013
Botox® Cosmetic has received FDA-approval for a new cosmetic indication -- the treatment of dynamic facial wrinkles surrounding the eye area, more commonly known as crow’s feet. The Skin Center Medical Spa, located in Pittsburgh, PA and Columbus, OH recognizes that Botox Cosmetic has been used in an off-label capacity for the treatment of crow’s feet for quite some time; however feels this new FDA approval will offer consumers an additional level of confidence in the safety and effectiveness of the product.
Adona Kane, 40-year old Mt. Lebanon, PA resident and client of The Skin Center, has been receiving Botox injections twice a year for the past three years to diminish the subtle signs of aging. “I started getting Botox a few years ago to not only soften the wrinkles I had, but to maybe help prevent new wrinkles from forming,” said Kane. “I really like the results and now having FDA approval to treat crow’s feet…that certainly makes me feel even more comfortable with my decision.”
Dominic Brandy, MD, board-certified cosmetic surgeon and founding medical director of The Skin Center Medical Spa, believes the FDA approval to treat crow’s feet will expand the benefit of Botox Cosmetic to consumers wanting to diminish their wrinkles. He cautions, however, that people still need to be aware of who is injecting the Botox and if that person is qualified to perform the injection. “If the injector does not have a proper understanding of facial anatomy and injects the Botox incorrectly, the consumer will have to live with a drooping eyelid or the ‛frozen look‛ until the Botox wears off,” said Brandy. “I strongly recommend asking the provider about their education, training and experience in injecting Botox before undergoing treatment.”
The Skin Center Medical Spa employs expert injectors to administer Botox® Cosmetic, including a dedicated National Trainer for Allergan, Inc., the makers of Botox. Debra Thomas, RN,. The Skin Center’s National Trainer for Allergan, Inc travels the country teaching other medical professionals proper injection techniques as well as the most advanced applications for Botox® Cosmetic.
