(Pittsburgh, PA - February 19, 2013) - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently issued a letter to 350 US medical practices alerting them that they may have received unapproved Botox from a foreign supplier. The FDA’s concern is that the formulation of Botox being sold is not FDA-approved and therefore treatment with this product, according to the letter, may cause “harm to patients, because it may be unsafe or ineffective”. As one of the nation’s largest providers of Allergan Inc.’s BOTOX® Cosmetic, The Skin Center Medical Spa with three locations in Pittsburgh, PA and one in Columbus, OH, ensures patients are receiving only authentic BOTOX® Cosmetic shipped directly from manufacturer.
