Physicians don't really know how signifi cant the needle phobic population may be, but once a topical preparation is available we may fi nd new patient populations and potential new uses of neuromodulators." RT001 from Revance Therapeutics (revance.com) is a botulinum toxin type A topical gel that is enter- ing Phase 3 clinical trials. Phase 2 trials showed no signifi cant safety issues.

There's competition here as well. Transdermal Corp. (transdermalcorp.com), based in Birmingham, Michigan is testing Cosmetox, a botulinum toxin type A topical cream delivered with the company's proprietary non- particle drug delivery technology. Both of these products and the rationale behind topical delivery of botulinum toxin is well covered in "Topical Botulinum Toxins" by Ashley Collins, MD, and Adnan Nasir, MD, published in the March 2010 issue of the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology. As new products enter the market, physicians are fi nding more ways to use these products both for cos- metic and medical purposes.

And we still haven't hit the masses." Linda W. Lewis is the contributing editor of MedEsthetics. "Diffusion can be dose related or related to the reconstitution volume."
