Currently, Endo has an injectable product in development for the treatment of cellulite.
Evolus is a company dedicated to aesthetic medicine focused on providing physicians and their patients with expanded choices in aesthetic treatments and procedures. Evolus’ lead candidate DWP-450, also known by the chemical name prabotulinumtoxinA, is a 900 kDa purified botulinum toxin type A complex that was approved by Health Canada for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines in adult patients under 65 years of age and is being evaluated for marketing approval in the United States and other areas.
Sinclair Pharma is a global company with a rapidly expanding U.S. presence operating in the aesthetics market. Sinclair has a strong portfolio of differentiated, complementary aesthetics technologies, which are experiencing significant growth, targeting clinical needs for effective, high quality, minimally-invasive treatments. This includes, Silhouette InstaLift®, a minimally-invasive procedure that increases volume while restoring contours of the midface.
