The solution offers a holistic approach to individualized care, empowering patients to pursue their treatment plan with confidence
In a global pilot study, 80% of respondents said the application helped them to understand their treatment options. Meanwhile, 85% stated that they would recommend the application, and 91% said they plan to return to their practitioner to continue their treatment plan1
Zug, Switzerland – January 26, 2023 – Galderma has announced the launch of FACE by Galderma™, an innovative augmented reality application. The ground-breaking solution enables aesthetic practitioners and patients to visualize treatment results at the planning stage. The technology will be presented to the aesthetic scientific community at the International Master Course on Aging Science (IMCAS) World Congress 2023 in Paris on January 26-28.
FACE by Galderma™ gives patients a real-time, realistic “before and after” view of possible results from an individualized treatment plan. This helps address concerns about end results while also enabling better understanding of a holistic treatment approach, ultimately leading to greater patient satisfaction1.
“We developed this game-changing solution to support aesthetic practitioners and give patients a visual representation of what they can expect from the procedures included in their treatment plan. For example, the real-time injectable results feature simulates how a treatment might augment a patient’s lips, cheeks or chin. FACE by Galderma™ offers patients a realistic visual of their results before treatment even begins, supporting them to establish treatment objectives and priorities alongside their practitioner. It gives them the freedom to make their aesthetic goals a reality.”
HEAD OF GLOBAL BUSINESS UNIT, AESTHETICS
FACE by Galderma™ allows for an immersive, fully interactive consultation process and enables the aesthetic practitioner to evaluate the entire face in real time. The assessment is based on Galderma’s Five Facet Assessment that considers skin quality, facial shape, facial symmetry, facial proportions, and contour, as well as animation and emotional expression. Following the assessment, priority areas can be identified, and an individualized treatment plan can be created. By taking a full-face approach, FACE by Galderma™ ensures that the practitioner provides a holistic treatment plan that meets the patient’s needs. The technology behind FACE by Galderma™ was developed in partnership with Crisalix, the worldwide leading reference in 3D, virtual reality and augmented reality aesthetic simulation.
“FACE by Galderma™ ushers in a level of innovation previously unseen in the aesthetics industry. This unique technology has the potential to transform how consultations are conducted and is ideal for showcasing the possibilities of Galderma’s impressive portfolio of injectables.”
CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
The results of a recent global pilot study of FACE by Galderma™ were extremely promising. Of the respondents, 80% said the application helped them to understand their treatment options, while 73% agreed that it made them contemplate a procedure they had not previously considered. Meanwhile, 61% stated that they plan to show their “before and after” images to friends. Overall, 85% said they would recommend the application, and 91% said they plan to return to their practitioner to continue their individualized treatment plan1.
“Patients come to my practice for a consultation because they are interested in an aesthetic injectable procedure, often have questions and are apprehensive about how the procedure will turn out and whether it will look natural and address their wrinkles. The advanced technology available via the new FACE by Galderma tool provides my patients with a simulation of their outcome in advance of the procedure, which should help alleviate their concerns and build trust.”
