  Purpose

It is thought that the amount of fluid used to dilute Botox for injection has an effect on the quality of the result and the duration of effect on the treatment of upper face rhytides, even though the dose remains the same.

The study was designed to test this thinking, using the crow's feet wrinkles as the treatment area.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Using the per visit photographs, the effect of Botox was measured separately for each treatment site (right and left crow's feet at maximum smile) for all visits.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Using the per visit photographs, the remaining effect of Botox treatment was measured separately for each treatment site (right and left crow's feet at maximum smile) for the 30, 60, and 90 day follow up visits.

Estimated Enrollment: 20

Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2005
Detailed Description:

It is thought that the amount of fluid used to dilute Botox for injection has an effect on the quality of the result and the duration of effect on the treatment of upper face rhytides, even though the dose remains the same.

20 female subjects (10 per site), who fit the inclusion/exclusion criteria for study participation were injected with 5 units of Botox (one injection each side) into the crow's feet area. The injections were prepared with one side randomly receiving a five fold difference in volume for dilution.

Response to treatment was evaluated at 14 days, 30 days, 60 days and 90 days after the injection visit. Standardized photography was taken at each visit.

Analysis of the photographs of the lateral orbital (crow's feet rhytides) at maximum attempted contraction (maximum smile) was done by Canfield Scientific, Inc., using a specialized software program created to detect and measure changes.
