Allergan (Botox) | About the Brand



Allergan plc is an Ireland-based American pharma group that develops, acquires, and manufactures some of the most well-known brand name medical devices and drugs in the market. They cater to a wide variety of medical disciplines including central nervous system treatments, eye care, and of course, medical aesthetics. This company was actually created in 2015 after the merging of two companies, Actavis plc and Allergan, Inc. In fact, on November of that year, it was supposed to merge with Pfizer as well, but was cancelled after the administration at the time announced its intension to ban tax inversions.    

Possibly the most well-known product of Allergan is Botox. Botox, however, is not only for removing wrinkles in the corner of the eyes and the forehead, as it can be used in both cosmetic and therapeutic cases. It comes in powder form, and is meant to be dissolved in a certain solution and then injected into the muscle. The solution then blocks the signals for movement, thereby having the target muscles relax and not contract. In cosmetic cases, this product is used to have the muscles in the face stop moving so that the corners of the eyes and the skin on the forehead can relax and lose some of the wrinkles. In therapeutic cases, it can treat a variety of disorders and ailments, including migraines and jaw clenching. It should also be noted that Botox use in therapeutic cases can be covered by medical insurance, while cosmetic cases are out-of-pocket only.
