I recently heard that there’s a botulinum toxin gel. Is this effective? How is it different from the injection?
Topical botulinum toxin gel is currently in phase III trials. These trials compare how effective the gel will be in comparison to injected toxin. The gel will not be available for use by the general public until after the study is complete and after the FDA approves the product if that occurs. It may prove to be a great addition to the available treatments for facial lines, but it may also prove to be a bust. Stay tuned.
