When will generic Botox be available? At this point in time, the answer is never. It has nothing to do with a patent. The reason it's not available is Botox falls under the category of a "biologic" medication, which is governed by different rules and regulations. These are medications that are made using live cells or organisms, which produce certain proteins or molecules. The certain law prohibits generic biologics. If a pharmaceutical company wants a generic version, they must undergo the traditional FDA testing just like a brand name drug. Since this is so costly there's no incentive to spend years doing this and coming out with a generic version when the laws may be changed that control this, which would allow generic biologics - including generic botox.
“One popular new plastic surgery technique is called lip grafting, or "fat recycling" wherein fat cells are removed from one part of your body that is too large, such as your buttocks, and injected into your lips; people will then be literally kissing ass.”
