Maybe. A company in California has developed a botulinum toxin get and is currently studying its effectiveness. They recently funded a study and found it was effective for treating crow’s feet. The details about how long results will last, how effective it will be compared to injection Botox, and exactly how it will be used remain to be seen. It appears that the gel will need to be mixed prior to use. In the study, the investigators applied the get to the crow’s feet area, covered it, and removed it after 30 minutes. They repeated the application in 4 weeks.
