Galderma, a global healthcare company focused on skin health, announced today that it has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval to market Restylane® Lyft for cheek augmentation and the correction of age-related midface contour deficiencies in patients over the age of 21. Restylane® Lyft, formerly marketed as Perlane-L®, is an injectable gel used to increase volume and smooth wrinkles in the face. With this new indication, Restylane® Lyft is the first and only FDA approved filler indicated to provide fullness to the midface area (cheeks) and to correct and smooth the nasolabial folds (“smile lines”).
“Consumers are looking for safe, high quality products that can deliver natural-looking results. This new indication demonstrates the versatility of Restylane® Lyft and its efficacy in addressing smile lines and restoring structure to the cheeks and midface area,” said Kelly Huang, Ph.D., Vice President and General Manager of Galderma’s Aesthetic and Corrective Business Unit in the U.S. “With more than 15 years of proven safety data and approximately 6 million treatments worldwide, Restylane® Lyft is a trusted, safe and effective product and we are proud to be able to expand our offering to healthcare providers and consumers in the U.S.”
