Breaking News! Allergan Announces New FDA Approval!
This week, Allergan has announced the Food and Drug Administration has approved Botox Cosmetic for use in moderate crow’s feet or smile lines at the corners of the eyes.
This is certainly great news!
As you know, we have been using this medication for this application for years now. Previously, Botox was only approved for use in the glabella, or the worry lines between the eyebrows.
This recent approval adds to this palate of procedures and describes 24 units applied to the corners of the eye area for the treatment of wrinkling.
Now with FDA approval, Allergan will be able to educate, advertise, and market this application. Public information efforts will also focus on this application bringing this into the public eye.
We have known that this is an extraordinarily safe and preventative application of neuromodulators such as Botox Cosmetic and Dysport. It is great to have this information officially available to our patients.
