Botox may soon have a competitor that could last longer.
Revance Therapeutics’ wrinkle-reducing injection met its goal of lasting for six months, according to phase three trial results the company released Tuesday. Competitors Allergan’s Botox Cosmetic and Galderma’s Dysport last up to four months, according to their websites.
Revance’s RT002 uses the same active ingredient as its competitors, botulinum toxin Type A, but was created using the company’s proprietary peptide technology. The product is 15 years in the making and is now one step closer to reaching consumers.
