Galderma Receives FDA Approval to Market Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine to Correct Age Related Volume Loss in the Cheek Area

Galderma announced 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). This FDA approval marks the fifth major indication in the U.S. for the Restylane® family of products. Restylane®Lyft joins Restylane®, indicated to correct and smooth smile lines as well as to augment the lips, and Restylane® Silk, the first and only treatment that is approved for lip enhancement and the treatment of wrinkles and lines around the mouth. These brands combined represent the broadest range of dermal fillers with the most FDA approved indications commercially available for healthcare professionals and patients. The brand name is changing from Perlane-L® to Restylane®Lyft to help health care providers and consumers understand where the brand fits among the other Galderma products that are based on the core Restylane® technology.
