Evolus has shipped the first customer orders for Nuceiva (botulinum toxin type A) and launched commercial operations in Great Britain. Nuceiva (botulinum toxin type A) is approved for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe vertical lines between the eyebrows seen at maximum frown (glabellar lines) when the severity of the facial lines has an important psychological impact in adults below 65 years of age.

With support from our distributor partners and pharmacies, we are looking forward to evolving the future of beauty with our customers.”

Restylane Eyelight™

Galderma has officially launched its latest product Restylane Eyelight™ to the consumer market. A virtual event led by Dr Munir Somji, founder of Dr MediSpa was held to mark the launch and attended by leading UK beauty journalists. With the popularity of tear trough treatments exploding in recent years, Restylane® Eyelight™ has been developed for precise placement to fill under-eye hollows. NASHA gel technology provides natural-looking results, reducing under-eye shadows caused by a lack of volume and volume loss in the under-eye area. “Improving tired eyes can often be the single most impactful tweak and I am treating more tear troughs in my clinics than ever before”, says Dr Somji. “Restylane® Eyelight™, provides a tool to deliver reliable and lasting results. It’s exciting to have this new filler on our books, I have confidence in the technology as it has over 25 years of history in the market.”
