(NYSE: AGN), the #1 global medical esthetics company, and Clinique, the #1 prestige cosmetics brand in the United States, today announced the nationwide availability of CLINIQUE MEDICAL. The new skin care line is scientifically-designed and clinically-proven to complement select in-office cosmetic procedures and available only through skin care physicians’ offices.

“Clinique has always been on the cutting-edge of breakthrough science and skin care technology,” said Lynne Greene, Global President, Clinique Laboratories. “We are proud that we can meet the modern and discerning consumer’s unprecedented needs in our innovative way. Our collaboration with Allergan puts CLINIQUE MEDICAL in an ideal position to provide best-in-class professional skin care to both physicians and consumers alike.”

“CLINIQUE MEDICAL represents the latest innovation in Allergan’s commitment as a leader in medical esthetics to the Science of Rejuvenation™ – that is to providing medical specialists and consumers with esthetic products backed by science that deliver on a specific need in the market,” said Robert Grant, Allergan’s Corporate Vice President and President, Allergan Medical. “Combining the strengths of both Allergan and Clinique, the products in the CLINIQUE MEDICAL line leverage innovative technologies formulated to specifically address the explicit needs of patients’ skin when undergoing some of the most popular in-office procedures so they can have an optimal experience prior to and post-treatment.”

Named one of Allure magazine’s 2008 “Beauty Breakthroughs,” the products in the CLINIQUE MEDICAL Optimizing Regimen kit work together to help improve the skin’s receptivity to the benefits of laser skin resurfacing such as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) or fractionated laser treatments, chemical peels such as 30% Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) peels, and microdermabrasion.[i] Products in the kit also aid in the post-procedure process by helping to manage post-procedure visible excess redness and irritation, encourage even skin tone and enhance skin’s resilience to the visible signs of aging.

The CLINIQUE MEDICAL skin care line combines carefully selected ingredients with patent-pending components such as Probiotic Technology to create beautiful formulas that help prepare, support and maintain the skin pre- and post-treatment. The CLINIQUE MEDICAL Optimizing Regimen kit includes a Probiotic Cleanser, Skin Conditioning Treatment, Recovery Week Complex, Optimizing Treatment Cream and Daily SPF 38. The products included in the kit are also available for individual purchase. In addition, the CLINIQUE MEDICAL line also includes the Dry Spot Balm, an ultra-hydrating lip and facial spot balm designed to alleviate severe dryness and the associated discomfort related to some prescription medications.
