For all you needle-phobics who crave to be wrinkle-free, topical Botox may be coming out in this New Year!
Botox is one of the most common cosmetic treatments world-wide. It is well known for reducing wrinkles and smoothing out the skin of the forehead, raise the eyebrows, and remove frown lines and crow’s feet. But some patients are deterred from obtaining smooth skin because of the thought of having an injection. Fortunately, topical Botox is on its way and promises pain-free wrinkle control!
Revance Therapeutics is developing a gel called RT001 which will be applied in the physician’s office. The gel will remain in place for a short period of time and then it is removed with a specially designed tool. This gel will not be available over the counter or via prescription. RT001 was created several years ago and is in phase 2 FDA trials so it may be released later this year.
For some, the only reason to avoid Botox is the thought of using a needle. With this gel, we may be able to painlessly turn back time.
Don’t worry, ROXY Plastic Surgery will let you know when it’s available! Read more at www.revance.com
