Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Mid-face Volume Deficit Scale (MVDS) [ Time Frame: Through Week 104 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percent of subjects maintaining >=1 grade improvement from baseline based on 6-point MVDS scale ranging from 0 (no facial volume loss) to 5 (severe volume loss)

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale (GAIS) [ Time Frame: Through Week 104 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percent of subjects maintaining >= 1 grade improvement from Week 8 based on the 5-point GAIS scale (-2 to =+2) where negative numbers indicate worse outcome, 0 indicates no change, and positive numbers indicate improvement

  • Wrinkle Assessment Nasolabial Fold (NLF) Rating [ Time Frame: Through Week 104 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percentage of subjects with >= 1 point improvement on a 5-point scale assessing nasolabial fold severity where 0 is not wrinkle and 4 is a very deep wrinkle

  • Self-Perception of Age [ Time Frame: Through Week 104 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in self-perception of age compared to baseline

  • Subject Satisfaction [ Time Frame: At Week 104 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percentage of subjects responding "satisfied" or "very satisfied" with the treatment
