Galderma announced the FDA approval of Restylane® Lyft for cheek augmentation and the correction of age-related midface contour deficiencies late last week. So what is this exciting new product? Well......it’s basically Perlane®, which has been available for years, but rebranded. Perlane® is a hyaluronic acid filler that was used mainly in the nasolabial fold areas, but was also used in the central face area for adding volume to the cheeks. It is a thicker HA filler than its sister product, Restylane®.

We constantly stress the importance of homecare products along with in-office procedures. And not only that, but the right homecare products are key. One of the reasons is because it allows your skin to react better to treatments because the homecare products have enabled the treatments to continue working longer and/or better. Plus, since you are investing money in in-office procedures, the best thing you can do it help maintain and build the results with proper homecare.
EVOSYAL to begin clinical trials.
Evolus, a division of ALPHAEON has put in a new neurotoxin called EVOSYAL for study with the FDA. This is a neurotoxin (like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin that are currently available). However, this new neurotoxin has the potential to last longer, should its FDA trial prove its safety and efficacy. The clinical study is just beginning and will most likely take a few years to complete. However, a new, longer-lasting neurotoxin could be available in years to come!
Resveratrol is an antioxidant that most famous for being in red wine. However, it can also be applied topically in skincare products and aids in treatment of skin aging. The most important thing about Resveratrol in terms of skincare products is that the ingredient must be stabilized properly. If not, it simply doesn't work, or worse, could actually harm the skin. Many "cheaper" versions of skincare products, or products people try to make at home, simply don't have proper stabilization of ingredients. This means, the product may work once or twice, but as the bottle is being used, the efficacy is going down dramatically. That's why expensive products are expensive - there are reasons to stabilize ingredients - efficacy and safety!

Botox, hyaluronic acid, fillers from overseas, and more - black and gray market injectables.
I'm often asked by patients how they can see specials for injectors offering Botox for $3/unit or a syringe of Restylane for $200. The answer is black and gray market injectables. Black market injectables would be those that are compounded by illegal pharmacies or companies that are selling illegal copies of fillers or Botox. It happens a lot. We get emails and faxes all the time from companies who offer amazing deals on injectables. But they aren't legitimate and they are fraud.
