Botox gets FDA approval to treat 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.

However when injected directly into a muscle in approved doses, Botox prevents muscles from tightening by temporarily paralyzing them, which in turn makes wrinkles less visible.
