If you've considered getting Botox treatments, but you're afraid of the needles, you may soon be in luck. Clinical trials are underway for a wrinkle fighting topical gel that has the same ingredient as injectible Botox. So far, studies show it successfully reduced wrinkles in 89-percent of the 270 patients who tried it. Researchers say it works by penetrating the skin and relaxing the underlying facial muscles. Even though it's just a gel, it still needs to be applied by a doctor. Sounds interesting, but it's still waiting for approval from the FDA.
