Maker Of Botox Is Sold To AbbVie In $63 Billion Deal

Maker Of Botox Is Sold To AbbVie In $63 Billion DealThe drugmaker AbbVie, owner of the top-selling drug Humira, announced on Tuesday, June 25, it will buy Allergan for $63 billion, which makes this the second-biggest takeover in the pharmaceutical industry this year!

Allergan is the parent company of some of the most popular cosmetic injections and devices on the market, including Juvederm, CoolSculpting and Botox, the drug used to treat muscle spasms, migraines and skin wrinkles.

The maker of Botox has another reason to celebrate, too! Allergan’s CoolTone, the cousin of CoolSculpting, also received FDA clearance for strengthening and toning the abdomen, buttocks and thighs.

Using magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS), CoolTone technology penetrates the underlying muscle layers and induces involuntary muscle contractions to strengthen muscle fibers, resulting in improved muscle conditioning.

What does this mean for you? As the medical aesthetics industry continues to grow and new technologies hit the marketplace, more businesses are looking to hire individuals who can perform these cosmetic treatments.

Benefits of Medical Aesthetics Training

Since treatments like Botox and CoolSculpting are considered cosmetic, medical aesthetics training is a must! With over 15 years of excellence, National Laser Institute offers medical aesthetics courses for those interested in jumpstarting an exciting career in this multi-billion-dollar marketplace. Whether you are looking to become a cosmetic laser technician or a cosmetic injector, medical aesthetics courses have several benefits:

  • More job opportunities. Businesses that offer anti-aging services like Botox and laser hair removal are always in search of new talent to add to their staff. In fact, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that approximately 6,600 jobs will be added to the medical aesthetics marketplace by 2024.
  • Confidence boost. Hands-on training in a medical spa environment allows you to put your new skills to the test, giving you a confidence boost, so you can provide your future clientele with awesome treatments – and feel like you have been doing it for years!
  • Expand your professional network. It is essential to surround yourself with like-minded people. Medical aesthetics training provides you with the opportunity to meet new people who share the same passion for helping others look and feel their best. These new connections are beneficial as you start your career in this exciting marketplace. Who knows, you may even decide to start your own business together!
  • Short training courses. Did you know you can complete a medical aesthetics course in as little as a weekend? If you are looking for a comprehensive learning experience, longer course options are available. These courses provide students with classroom education and hands-on training in a medical spa environment for the ultimate learning experience.
