Botox approved for crow's feet

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - You can now smooth out your smile lines with botox.

The Food and Drug Administration just approved the toxin to treat crow's feet--a technique that doctors have been doing 'off-label' for years.

They hope the government's stamp of approval will now encourage even more people to get the work done.

When botox is injected in tiny, targeted doses, it stops muscles from contracting.

Botox for crow's feet costs between $200 and $600, and is not covered by insurance.

The injections have caused a 'droopy eye' effect, which is why you do need to see a licensed professional.
