Further study details as provided by Galderma:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Volume loss assessment percent change from baseline [ Time Frame: Baseline, 3 weeks after baseline injections, 3 weeks after touch up injections (Optional), 3 months after the last injections, 6 months after the last injections, 12 months after the last injections, 18 months after the last injections ]
    The investigator will assess volume loss by indication and overall (whole face).

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Subject satisfaction [ Time Frame: Three weeks after the last injections (Visit 2 or Vissit 3 if touch-up) and at last study visit (18 months after the last injections) ]
    Subject satisfaction will be assessed at visit 2 or visit 3 (if touch up injections) and at last study visit (18 months after the last injection) through a satisfaction questionnaire

  • Investigator satisfaction [ Time Frame: At end of the study (18 months after last injections) ]
    Investigators will complete a questionnaire after the last visit of the last subject.

  • Safety assessment [ Time Frame: Baseline, 3 weeks after baseline injections, 3 weeks after touch up injections (optional), 3 months after the last injections, 6 months after the last injections, 12 months after the last injections, 18 months after the last injections, ]
    Incidence of Adverse Event will be reported

Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: February 2012
Study Completion Date: February 2014
Primary Completion Date: February 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Hyaluronic acid Device: Hyaluronic acid dermal filler gel
1 injection per indication and 1 touch-up injection if necessary
Other Name: Study filler is Emervel Volume Lidocaine.

Detailed Description:

Clinical hypothesis: The global approach of the subject pan-facial dermal volume depletion and face soft-tissue contour defects correction using specific dermal filler for all indications to be injected will satisfy both subjects and investigators.

This device will be used for full face correction of volume loss: chin, temporal areas, jawline, cheek, cheekbones, deep to very deep nasolabial folds (only if cheekbones are injected concomitantly).

Study duration will be up to 19 months. Injections will be performed at baseline. If necessary, investigator will perform touch-up injections at the following visit (3 weeks after baseline injection).


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects seeking treatment for correction of volume loss.
  • Subjects presenting a score of 2 (visible depression or descent) for whole face on the volume loss scale and at least 2 indications affected by volume loss among the following: chin temporal areas, jawlines, cheeks, cheekbones, deep to very deep nasolabial folds (severity score 4 at least on Lemperle rating scale) if cheekbones are injected.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects at risk in term of precautions, warnings and contraindication referred in the package insert of the study device,
  • Subjects who underwent previous injection of permanent filler in the injected area.
