Since Botox® Cosmetic was approved by the FDA (US Food and Federal Drug Administration) almost 10 years ago, close to 11 million treatments have been administered. Women’s views about Botox® Cosmetic has changed during those ten years, and Allergan,Inc.,maker of Botox® Cosmetic is sharing important information about these new views.
• The number of women considering talking to their doctors about Botox® Cosmetic Treatment has more than quadrupled from 1.3 million in 2002 to 5.8 Million in 2010.
• The number of women who think that Botox® Cosmetic is an effective means for treating frown lines between the eyebrows from 21% when the product was approved to 79% in 2010.
“Women’s understanding and appreciation of BOTOX® Cosmetic has significantly evolved over the past decade, and as the market leader, we continually invest in educational initiatives that provide women with relevant information they need to make well-informed decisions about treatment,” said Colleen McKenna, Senior Marketing Director, Allergan Medical. “Our partnership with actress Courtney Thorne-Smith and the non-profit organization HealthyWomen is our latest initiative to address pressing questions women have about medical aesthetic injectable treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic.”
Recently I had the pleasure of speaking with Award Winning actress Courtney Thorne-Smith. I asked her about her experience with Botox® Cosmetic. She told me that she had the lines on her forehead between her brows that look like a number “11″. She spoke with her doctor and expressed her need to look as natural as possible, and as an actress, still be able to show expression with her face. She was extremely happy with the results and continues to receive Botox® Cosmetic.
I then asked Courtney about her career and what she was doing at the moment. She was very enthusiastic about being on the Sitcom “Two and a Half Men” again this season, and was looking forward to start taping in October.
Working in film, televison movies, and sitcoms, I was curious about which was her favorite. Courtney really likes sitcoms because it gives her more of a stable schedule. She is married with a son, and she likes to spend time at home, traveling and enjoying time with her friends.
Courtney has also written a book you can purchase called OUTSIDE IN:
I was truly delighted to spend some time with this very talented actress, Mom, and great gal!
