Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment

Further study details as provided by Medicis Global Service Corporation:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Treatment Difference in Pain as Measured by a Visual Analogue Scale [ Time Frame: After Injection on Day of Treatment ]
    No pain is noted at 0 mm and worst pain is noted at 100 mm.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Wrinkle Improvement at Day 14 [ Time Frame: 14 days after treatment when compared to baseline ]
    This measure was performed by the validated GAIS tool (Global Asthetic Improvement Scale). The GAIS was completed by the participant at day 14. The GAIS is a qualitative 5 point scale evaluating Aesthetic Improvement (0=worse, 1=no change, 2=Improved, 3=Much Improved, 4=very much improved). Treatment success is defined as at least a one grade improvement (2, 3, or 4) from pre-treatment.

Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: November 2008
Study Completion Date: March 2009
Primary Completion Date: January 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Restylane and Restylane with Lidocaine
This is a split-face design injecting both Restylane and Restylane-L injectable gels, administered once. Each subject received Restylane on one side of the face, and Restylane-L on the other. Subjects were blinded to which side of their face received Restylane or Restylane-L. The study was randomized and treatments successive.
Device: Restylane and Restylane-L
This is a split face design and each subject received both Restylane and Restylane-L. Treatments were double blind, randomized, and successive.
