FDA Approves Higher Botox Dose for Moderate to Severe Forehead Lines

Botox Dose for Moderate to Severe Forehead Lines

Botox has long been the most recognizable name in cosmetic medicine. Similar to how Kleenex has become synonymous with tissue, Botox is now an acceptable shorthand for a variety of cosmetic treatments to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Botox burst onto the scene in 2002 when it became the first treatment to be approved by the FDA to treat the appearance of frown lines between the eyebrows. 11 years later in 2013, Botox again made waves by being approved to treat the appearance of crow’s feet. In 2017, Botox once again found itself in the news with the announcement that they have FDA approval to treat moderate to severe forehead lines.

Botox the First Neurotoxin Brand Approved to Treat Three Areas

This news has Botox making history, as it is the first neurotoxin brand that is approved to treat three distinct areas with the same product. Botox is so effective, it can provide treatment to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the forehead, around the eyes (crow’s feet), and above the nose (frown lines or glabellar lines).

What are Forehead Wrinkles and Lines?

Forehead wrinkles or fine lines are the often deep set wrinkles that stretch horizontally on your forehead above your eyes. The forehead is typically the first place where individuals will see wrinkles since we use the muscles in our forehead for pretty much every facial expression in the book. Whether you are smiling, frowning, furrowing your brow in frustration, or scrunching up your face while deep in thought, your forehead is impacted. The positioning and depth of forehead wrinkles can often make it seem like you are constantly annoyed, perplexed, or irritated, making it a problem area many individuals want to address as soon as possible.

Forehead Lines Clinical Trial Results

In order to get FDA approval, there was a clinical trial to determine the effectiveness of using Botox to reduce the appearance of forehead lines. In a controlled study, Botox compared favorably to a placebo control group after 30 days, with approximately 54% of all botox participants seeing an improvement in their forehead wrinkles. This compares to under 1% of the individuals in the placebo group.
