Day before yesterday, (September 11 2013), the FDA made it official: BOTOX Cosmetic is now indicated for use in the lateral canthal lines, aka: crows feet. Why is no one losing their minds in celebration, you ask??
Up until now, the only FDA indication for BOTOX Cosmetic in the face has been the glabellar lines (the 11’s that can form between your brows). BUT, it is often AMAZING in many other places… including those crows feet! How do we know, you ask?
…So, don’t tell anybody, (shhhhh!) but just about every physician or nurse who performs BOTOX Cosmetic treatments has totally already been doing this. It’s considered ‘off-label”, (like you’re off-roading from the original smooth highway of labeled directions/indications) but BOTOX is done frequently in many other areas.
Even so, Congrats, Botox! We’re happy the FDA agrees with what we totally haven’t already been doing for years.
**Let’s all turn and wink knowingly at each other here, completely free from crows feet**
