From what I understand, the clinical trials were completely skewed, and they still did not deliver promising results. Corruption allowed things to push through ... once again.

Does Allergan even have any effective products they have truly invented? It seems like they just take an existing product and relabel it (and remarket it) for some other purpose. I love their Juvederm, but it's nearly identical to Restylane, which was first. Latiesse is just a glaucoma drug relabeled for eyelashes. Were they the real pioneers of Botox or did they just repackage botulinum toxin for wrinkles LOL

Juvederm is better than Restylane, as it lasts longer.

Totally agree but... it is the same active ingredient, just in a slightly different "vehicle" as they call it.
