The FDA's recent approval of using Botox to eliminate crow's feet is triggering high demand among middle-agers who have had little success removing the lines and creases commonly found in the corner of their eyes. The new technique involves injecting Botox in those areas to smooth out the wrinkles.
According to board-certified plastic surgeon Michael Nicole M.D., medical director and founder of CosmetiCare in Newport Beach, his office averages 20 calls each day since the FDA made their announcement last week.
"Up until now there have been few procedures that have been able to effectively eliminate those pesky fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. While this is a great innovation, those contemplating this treatment should opt for an expert with experience using Botox. When too much is administered, the patient can walk away with 'droopy eyes,' a phenomenon whereby the lids begin to sag resulting in an unpleasant appearance and potential disruption in function. While it's not permanent, it's an undesirable side effect that patients needn't go through. "
