IRVINE, Calif. -- December 19, 2012

Allergan, Inc. (NYSE:AGN) today announced that it has completed the
acquisition of SkinMedica, Inc. Under the terms of the agreement, which was
first announced on November 16, 2012, Allergan paid approximately $350 million
(subject to certain adjustments) for the business, which includes a variety of
"physician dispensed" non-prescription aesthetic skin care products and
prescription products. In connection with the closing of the transaction,
SkinMedica spun out its Colorescience aesthetic make-up business. Allergan
plans to operate SkinMedica as a separate global business based out of
SkinMedica’s current headquarters in Carlsbad, CA.

“The acquisition of SkinMedica reinforces our commitment to fueling growth
through a combination of internal investment in research and development and
leveraging external opportunities,” said David E.I. Pyott, Chairman of the
Board, President and Chief Executive Officer, Allergan. “Today marks a
significant achievement for Allergan, as our acquisition of SkinMedica will
enable us to assume a leadership position in the ‘physician dispensed’ topical
aesthetics category and will further strengthen our leadership position in the
facial aesthetics market by expanding our product portfolio to better meet the
needs of physicians and their patients.”
