Official Title: Safety Evaluation of Aline HA

Further study details as provided by TauTona Group:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety Evaluation of Aline HA [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The primary endpoint of this study is to assess treatment site responses and adverse events through 6 months post procedure.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety Evaluation of Aline HA [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Secondary endpoints include an independent reviewer (IR) and the investigator's assessment of wrinkle severity score (WSS), if the NLF is treated, and; qualitative patient and investigator standardized questionnaires using the Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale (GAIS) if an area besides the NLF is treated.
