This Friday, April 15 marks the 20th birthday of BOTOX Cosmetic – a.k.a. the miracle product that removes fine lines and wrinkles and makes us look years younger (We love you, Botox!). To celebrate, in collaboration with Flirt Wax Bar, we are running a giveaway now through the end of the day today (April 15 at 11:59pm) where the winners will be announced on Monday, April 18th! But before we get into that, let’s do a brief rundown of the history of BOTOX Cosmetic and how its incredible story began.
The Discovery: Onabotulinumtoxin A, a natural yet potent substance, was acquired by Allergan for therapeutic use. Soon after, several clinical trials took place, and the data was submitted to the FDA for approval.
The Approval for Therapeutic Use: In 1989, onbotulinumtoxinA received its FDA approval for therapeutic use and was rebranded with a simpler, more memorable name, Botox. Not long after, research commenced on the aesthetic uses of Botox, specifically testing the treatment’s safety and effectiveness for reducing moderate to severe frown lines.
The Approval for Cosmetic Use: In 2002, Botox became the first treatment of its kind to be FDA-approved as a temporary aesthetic treatment to reduce moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. Not to be confused with its therapeutic uses, Allergan quickly requested that Botox be marketed as BOTOX Cosmetic.
The Rise of BOTOX Cosmetic: Upon its second FDA approval, BOTOX Cosmetic quickly became one of the world’s most recognized aesthetic brands and is approved for use in 95 counties throughout the world!
The Millions of Patients: With over 100 million vials sold in the United States alone since 2002, the popularity of BOTOX Cosmetic continues to grow!
The Safety & Effectiveness: After 20 years of published research and 528 peer-reviewed articles, the safety and effectiveness of BOTOX Cosmetic have long been proven. In fact, it is one of the most widely researched and studied treatments of its kind.
