Happy 20th Birthday, Botox! Twenty years ago yesterday, Health Canada approved Botox (botulinum toxin type A) as a treatment for strabismus and blepharospasm. Since March 14, 1990, Botox has also been approved for the treatment of several other conditions, including cervical dystonia, hyperhidrosis, and focal spasticity, as well as to erase forehead wrinkles, glabellar lines and crow’s feet (for aesthetic conditions, the same product is labeled as Botox Cosmetic).Botox is known worldwide, treating patients in about 80 countries. Part of the reason the product is so popular is due to its ability to achieve predictable and measurable results through a relatively simple treatment that requires no surgery. Results are temporary. Can you imagine the world if Botox did not exist? Honestly, it has really revolutionized the way wrinkles are treated.
The makers of Botox, Allergan, have continued to study the purified protein and its beneficial effects on other medical and aesthetic conditions. It is currently seeking approval from the FDA for the treatment of chronic migraines.
Dr. Benchetrit and his team at COSMEDICA have years of experience with the use of Botox for wrinkle reduction. Contact our office and celebrate Botox’s birthday.!!
