Latest efficacy, safety & satisfaction data for neuromodulator portfolio


Two oral presentations and a poster will center on data for Alluzience, the first ready to use liquid (abobotulinumtoxinA), approved in June 2021 in Europe. Pooled data from two phase III studies (NCT02353871 and NCT02493946) demonstrated that Alluzience effectively improved frown line severity, with rapid onset of effect and up to 6 months improvement after a single treatment.1-3 Improvements in the severity of frown lines, satisfaction and psychological well-being were maintained over repeated treatment cycles.1 Additional post-hoc analyzes will be presented that confirm that the median time to return to baseline rating was nearly six months.3

The clinical data that will be presented are listed below:

Delegates at IMCAS can also attend Galderma’s symposium, Alluzience: the first liquid neuromodulator – from theory to practice . During the session, an expert panel will take attendees on a journey through the science of the first ready-to-use neuromodulator and their clinical experience of the breakthrough treatment. The symposium is taking place on Saturday 4, 13:30 to 15:00 CET.

Dysport (also marketed as Azzalure® in the EU)

Clinical experience with Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA) spans over three decades* and it has a well-established safety profile across multiple aesthetic indications including both frown lines and crow’s feet.4–14

Researchers will present three posters demonstrating that Dysport is efficacious and well tolerated, with subjects reporting natural results and high rates of satisfaction. A dose escalation study evaluated subject satisfaction using abobotulinumtoxinA doses up to 125U and demonstrated it was efficacious and well-tolerated across all doses from 50U to 125U with high satisfaction and improvement maintained for up to 9 months.15 Data was analyzed from three studies (NCT03736928, Phase 2; NCT03960957, Phase 3; NCT03687736, Phase 4) in which all subjects were treated with on-label 50 units. Subjects reported median onset of effect after two days in all three trials and high rates of subject satisfaction up to six months after injection in phase III and nine months in phase II trials.16 A post-hoc analysis of clinical trial NCT03687736 also found that while all age groups were satisfied with and experienced psychological benefits from treatment, millennials, known for their high expectations appeared to be particularly happy with two treatments a year of abobotulinumtoxinA.17

The clinical data that will be presented are listed below:

New data for Restylane range of hyaluronic acid fillers


One of the oral presentations presented will report on phase IV data from the CHEEKY study which evaluated treatment outcome after providing investigators with a treatment guide to help choose the right treatment for their patient. The study demonstrated that all patients achieved the aim of their treatment, whether it was projection or contouring/volumization and that the results were natural-looking with high subject satisfaction.18
