The cosmetic effect of Botox on wrinkles was originally documented by a plastic surgeon from Sacramento, California, Dr. Richard Clark, and published in the journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in 1989. After formal trials, on April 12, 2002, the FDA announced regulatory approval of botulinum toxin type A (Botox Cosmetic) to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows. Subsequently, cosmetic use of botulinum toxin type A (Botox) has become widespread with many celebrities viewing it as less intrusive and/or artificial than other types of plastic surgery.
