Do you have a fear of needles?

At the recent, ASPS Annual Conference in Denver, a study was presented on the effectiveness of topical botulinum gel also referred to as RT001, now under study.

The study involved 270 patients with moderate/severe wrinkling around the eye area.  It was noted that after application of the gel 89% experienced significant improvement.

This product works by penetrating the skin and relaxing the underlying muscles.  The current study only addresses the crows feet area where the skin is relatively thin.  It is not known whether this will be effective on other areas where the skin tends to be thicker.  This product is not yet approved by the FDA.

As Dr. Michael Kane, ASPS member surgeon states,” This unique, painless product could greatly expand the patient population for wrinkle reduction by offering a highly effective option.”

If approved this product will only be available through a physician.
