Dysport is a popular anti-wrinkle vaccine manufactured by the pharmaceutical company Galderma. It is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to soften skin furrows between the eyebrows. Allergan, on the other hand, manufactures Botox Cosmetic, another well-known injectable anti-wrinkle treatment. Allergan Aesthetics, an AbbVie company, develops, manufactures and markets a portfolio of leading beauty brands and products.
Its aesthetic product portfolio includes facial injectables, body contouring, plastics, skin care products and much more. It also offers customers around the world innovation, education, exceptional service and a commitment to excellence. Recently, nearly 20,000 people responded to an open casting for the opportunity to participate in the next campaign for the best-selling product of its kind. For customers who don't feel satisfied after trying Dysport, the company also offers a discount on an Allergan Botox treatment.
Caroline Van Hove, a spokesperson for Allergan, answered a journalist's question with an email message describing the promotion of Dysport as a price reduction exercise aimed at cannibalizing the market at the expense of patient education.
