September 30, 2021

The team behind this iconic and award-winning portfolio reflects on past milestones and a bright future for Galderma

Fort Worth, Texas – September 30, 2021 – Galderma, the world’s largest independent dermatology company, today marks the 25th anniversary of RESTYLANE®. Since launching in Europe in 1996 and becoming the first hyaluronic acid filler approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2003, RESTYLANE has celebrated many milestones across the globe. 1,2 Over the last 25 years, RESTYLANE has continued to surpass expectations as a pioneer for innovation, driving the future of aesthetics forward by pushing beyond the status quo to restore, enhance and refresh a youthful-looking appearance.

Now, in its 25th year, the RESTYLANE portfolio continues to grow and expand. Since RESTYLANE’s U.S. FDA approval in 2003, there have been 13 dermal filler product approvals and launches. The RESTYLANE portfolio offers a diverse range of fillers by using two complementary gel technologies, NASHA™ and XpresHAn™ (globally referred to as the OBT technology (Optimal Balance Technology)), to provide personalized, natural-looking results that deliver high patient satisfaction.3

In February, the FDA approved RESTYLANE DEFYNE® for the augmentation and correction of mild to moderate chin retrusion for adults over the age of 21.4 In June, RESTYLANE added a new product to the portfolio, RESTYLANE CONTOUR®, for cheek augmentation and correction of midface contour deficiencies in adults over the age of 21, becoming the first and only product in the U.S. to use proprietary XpresHAn Technology™ for the cheeks.5 These approvals mark major successes for the industry-standard filler.

With more than 50 million administered treatments and counting, this 25-year milestone marks a continuation of excellence and trust for RESTYLANE. Galderma continues to innovate and create dynamic products with natural-looking results, to ensure aesthetics providers and their customers have confidence in the brand.

“The depth of experience from RESTYLANE over the last 25 years has enabled us to build upon our expertise to innovate and develop new formulations and treatments,” said Flemming Ørnskov, M.D., MPH, Chief Executive Officer at Galderma. “With over 30 ongoing pipeline projects in aesthetics alone, we will continue to enhance our diverse and broad portfolio of sophisticated brands to advance dermatology for every skin story.”

Do not use if you have severe allergies with a history of severe reactions (anaphylaxis), are allergic to lidocaine or gram-positive bacterial proteins used to make hyaluronic acid, prone to bleeding, or have a bleeding disorder. The safety of use while pregnant or breastfeeding has not been studied. Tell your doctor if you have a history of scarring or pigmentation disorders as these side effects can occur with hyaluronic acid fillers. Tell your doctor if you are planning other cosmetic treatments (i.e., lasers and chemical peels) as there is a possible risk of inflammation at the injection site.

Tell your doctor if you’re taking medications that lower your body’s immune response or affect bleeding, such as aspirin or warfarin, as these medications may increase the risk of bruising or bleeding at the gel injection site. Using these products on gel injection sites with skin sores, pimples, rashes, hives, cysts, or infections should be postponed until healing is complete.

The most common side effects are swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache, tenderness, lump formation, itching at the injection site, and impaired hand function. Serious but rare side effects include delayed onset infections, recurrence of herpetic eruptions, and superficial necrosis at the injection site. The risk of unintentional injection into a blood vessel is small but can occur and could result in serious complications, which may be permanent including, vision abnormalities, blindness, stroke, temporary scabs, or permanent scarring of the skin. As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.

To report a side effect with any Restylane® product, please call Galderma Laboratories, L.P. at 1-855-425-8722.
