Condition Intervention
Nasolabial Folds Device: Perlane and Perlane-L

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Triple (Participant, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)

Further study details as provided by Medicis Global Service Corporation:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Treatment Difference in VAS (Perlane Side - Perlane-L Side) With Difference in VAS >= 10 mm [ Time Frame: After Injection on Day of Treatment ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Subjects Showing 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 Completion Date: April 2009
Primary Completion Date: March 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Perlane and Perlane-L
This is a split-face design injecting both Perlane and Perlane-L injectable gels, administered once. Each subject received Perlane-L on one side of the face, and Perlane on the other. Subjects were blinded to which side of their face receive Perlane or Perlane-L. The study was randomized and treatments successive.
Device: Perlane and Perlane-L
This is a split face design and each subject received both Perlane-L and Perlane. Treatments were blinded, randomized, and successive.
Other Name: Each subject received both Perlane-L and Perlane.

Detailed Description:
This is a split-face design. All 60 subjects receive Perlane on one side of their face, and Perlane-L on the other. Subjects and the investigator is blinded to which side of face receives which product. These are one time injections.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 65 Years   (Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Same Wrinkle Severity Rating Scale score at both Nasolabial Folds (either both Moderate [3] or both Severe [4])

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Active or chronic skin disease, inflammation or related conditions, near or on the Nasolabial Folds
  • Subjects who had undergone procedures based on active dermal response (e.g., laser or chemical peeling procedures) within 6 months prior to study entry
  • Use of any facial tissue augmenting therapy with non-permanent filler or aesthetic facial surgical therapy within 9 months prior to study entry
  • Permanent implant placed in the Nasolabial Fold area
