FDA Approves Botox® Cosmetic to Diminish Crow’s Feet

Share Article

Derma Health formally announces it will begin promoting Botox® Cosmetic as a way to improve the appearance of moderate to severe lateral canthal lines, commonly known as “crow’s feet” lines. Botox® Cosmetic is the first and only FDA approved drug treatment option that helps minimize the appearance of crow’s feet.

We have seen the advantages of Botox® for a decade, with few if any side effects, it is encouraging that the FDA now recognizes that Botox® is safe and effective for Crow’s feet.

“We have seen the advantages of Botox® for a decade, with few if any side effects,” said Trish Gulbranson, Derma Health’s owner and president. “It is encouraging that the FDA now recognizes that Botox® is safe and effective for Crow’s feet.”

The FDA approved Botox® Cosmetic in 2002 for the temporary improvement of moderate to severe wrinkles between the eyebrows, known as frown lines. Botox® Cosmetic works by keeping the muscles from tightening so the appearance of wrinkles are less prominent. It remains as the number one minimally invasive aesthetic treatment.

“This additional indication will provide people with a new FDA-approved treatment option for those seeking a smoother appearance by temporarily minimizing the appearance of crow’s feet at the sides of the eyes,” said Susan Walker of the FDA.

Botox® Cosmetic is administered via intramuscular injections. Treatment for both frown lines and crow’s feet can be given at the same time by a trained aesthetic physician for the best possible outcome for the patients who seek the treatment of Botox®.

Botox® Cosmetic’s safety and effectiveness for treating crow’s feet lines was established in two, randomized clinical studies. Based on the evidence collected, Botox® became an FDA-approved option for the treatment of crow’s feet.

The FDA also has approved Botox® for the treatment of chronic migraines, severe underarm sweating, blepharospasm (eyelid spasm) and strabismus (misalignment of the eyes when one or both eyes turn inward or outward).

Botox® Cosmetic is manufactured by Allergan Inc. based in Irvine, Calif.
