Though it may seem like it has been around forever given its widespread popularity and publicity including media exposure, BOTOX® Cosmetic (produced by Allergan, Inc.) is celebrating its 10th year anniversary of FDA approval for the treatment moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. In 2002, it was the first product to receive such an approval and it remains the standard by which all other competing products are measured. (The medical usage of BOTOX® goes all the way back to 1989 when it received FDA approval for its usage in the treatment of blepharospasm, an abnormal condition involving the eyelid.)
Ten years later, it remains the overwhelming market leader as well as the therapeutic standard for the treatment of facial wrinkles. I surely can strongly attest to this through my brief but disappointing experiences evaluating the competing wrinkle treatment alternatives, Dysport™ and Xeomin®.
As a celebration marking this 10 year milestone anniversary, the company producing BOTOX® Cosmetic has made available a limited time rebate on it which I can offer you and which can add up to a total of $200 in savings (if you undergo 3 treatments). In order to be eligible for this rebate, you must have your first treatment with Botox®Cosmetic before April 30, 2012. There is additional information on the limitations and restrictions to this offer at the product website.
For more information on Botox® Cosmetic treatments or on any other plastic surgery procedure that I perform or to schedule a consultation with me, please call my office at 480-451-3000.
