FDA Smooth Wrinkles
Today a gray hair sprang up when I started rinsing out the shampoo from my morning shower. Not so happy about gray hairs, but I am happy to report no wrinkles or better yet no crow's feet yet. For those not familiar with signs of aging, crow's feet otherwise known as ‘laugh lines' are those lines that radiate from the eyes. Once you start getting crow's feet, even makeup won't help hide them
There are a numerous of reasons why people start getting crow's feet a they age. One rationale is that the skin starts to lose its collagen and elastin result which in wrinkles. Geneticists say that another reason for those laugh lines are heredity. Still others say that the origins of crow's feet are the result of years of laughing, frowning, and squinting.
I am not a big fan of crow's fret, so I try to refrain from making big facial expressions when I laugh. Keeping in mind that the world is my playground keeps me from frowning. And finally, as much as I love looking up at clouds I try to avoid that activity when it is sunny as to avoid squinting at the sunlight and smoke. So far, so good.
Health experts recommend that hydrating skin often is an excellent way to avoid laugh lines. It is recommended that one should drink plenty of water, moisturize the skin with eye creams and wear sunscreen when outdoors.
For those of you, who didn't heed the aforementioned avoidance tips and have already started to develop wrinkles around the eyes, don't fret. The government agency known as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently approved a form of botulinum toxin known to treat those unwanted lines.
This botulinum toxin (known as Botox Cosmetic) is an injectable drug, which contains small amounts of the toxin produced by the clostridium botulinum bacterium. It is reported to temporarily paralyzing muscles, reducing the furrowed appearance of the skin thereby smoothing away wrinkles around the eyes.
According to news press, this drug treatment is he only current FDA approved medication for eye wrinkles. The most common side effects according to the government agency, involves swollen eyelids.
