CBS News - Dr. Marco Harmaty: "Botox Now FDA-Approved for Treating Crow's Feet"
Botox has been officially approved by the Food and Drug Administration to treat crow's feet, or wrinkles around the corners of the eyes.
Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA) is made from the botulinum neurotoxin, a toxin that can cause a serious disease that leads to muscle paralysis called botulism. "Aesthetic, or cosmetic, medicine physicians have felt comfortable about the drug's safety, which is why Botox has been frequently used for crow's feet and other unapproved areas of the face like the side of the nose," said Marco Harmaty, MD, an Assistant Professor of Surgery at The Mount Sinai Medical Center.
