VanderVeer Center in Portland, Oregon, is the Only Non-Surgical Medical Clinic in the NW to Reach BOTOX® Black Diamond Status

Allergan, Inc., (Irvine, CA,) the maker’s of BOTOX®, Juvederm® and Latisse®, has recognized VanderVeer Center as the only Non-Surgical Aesthetic Medical practice in the NW to attain Black Diamond status - the highest level of recognition offered by this leading pharmaceutical company.

Portland, OR, July 14, 2011 --( In July 2011, Allergan recognized VanderVeer Center in Portland, Oregon with their highest status - “Black Diamond.” VanderVeer Center is the only non-surgical medical practice in the Northwest to attain this, the most prestigious level attainable by the worlds’ leading cosmetic drug company. According to Allergan, (the maker’s of Botox, Juvederm, and Latisse) less than 1% of all surgical aesthetic medical practices ever reach this status. The Black Diamond level is attained by the purchase and use of Allergan’s family of products – which includes Breast Implants. VanderVeer Center, being a non-surgical clinic, does not receive credit for the purchase of breast implants, and has had to use the Allergan family of products above and beyond the norms of other aesthetic clinics.

Elizabeth VanderVeer, MD, President and Medical Director of VanderVeer Center said, “I am thrilled and honored to attain Allergan’s Black Diamond status. This recognition is a testament to what significant milestones can be achieved when two industry leaders combine their mutual resources for the safety and betterment of their patients.”

To celebrate this momentous occasion, VanderVeer Center is having a celebration on July 20, 2011 at their office, located in SW Portland. At this “black-tie” event, VanderVeer Center will be presenting a check for $1,500 to the “Make-A-Wish Foundation of Oregon ®.” Members of the press and media are invited to join VanderVeer Center’s staff and Make-A-Wish ® Foundation as they celebrate this momentous occasion.
