Events will include several ‘meet the expert’ sessions and interactive booth activities. In addition, Galderma will share 10 research posters and host two symposia, featuring data from its broad, highly differentiated portfolio of neuromodulators, biostimulators and fillers. Presenters and contributors will draw from the company’s research into serious skin conditions, such as rosacea and actinic keratosis.

“The strength and span of our presence at IMCAS 2023 reinforce our enduring commitment to providing physicians, consumers and patients with truly innovative and individualized solutions.
We look forward to connecting with the dermatology community at the congress.
We will not only share our latest data but also support physicians as they take the best approach in education, assessment and technique.”



Presenting the latest in clinical findings and educational efforts

Galderma will be sharing important data at IMCAS on Sculptra® (injectable poly-L-lactic acid, PLLA-SCA). This is the first and only U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved PLLA facial injectable treatment that helps stimulate the skin’s type I collagen production.iii,iv Sculptra helps restore fullness and firmness to areas of the face that become loose or saggy. The results of the innovative Sculptra Cheek Wrinkle study, which were measured using state-of-the-art technology, show the early onset, long-lasting effectiveness and safety of the treatment for cheek wrinkle correction over 24 months. These findings were complemented by high aesthetic improvement, high subject satisfaction with cheek appearance, and improvement in skin quality parameters including radiance and skin firmness (tightness) after treatment.i

Additional exciting data will be presented for Galderma’s neuromodulators, in particular for Alluzience® (abobotulinumtoxinA solution), including the latest data from Alluzience’s first phase IV study, STAR. Approved in Europe in June 2021, Alluzience is Europe’s first ready-to-use liquid neuromodulator for the treatment of moderate to severe glabellar lines (frown lines). Results from the unique STAR study show high patient satisfaction, with most investigators preferring Alluzience to powder solutions. Both investigators and patients also reported long-duration aesthetic improvement following a six-month follow-up period.ii

Galderma’s symposia at IMCAS highlight its dedication to providing not only innovative products but also cutting-edge approaches to support physician assessment and technique.

The first symposium builds on Galderma’s Holistic Individualized Treatment (HIT™) series with a focus on two new programs: HIT Kiss & Smile™ and Balanced Profile™. HIT is a patient-centric, science-based, individualized treatment approach that enables injectors to leverage their expertise with the renowned Galderma portfolio and optimize aesthetic outcomes while prioritizing patient satisfaction. The event is taking place in the Amphitheatre Bleu, Level 2 on Friday, January 27, from 8:30 to 10:00 AM CET.

The second symposium, Our Aesthetic Lives: A long-term journey into aesthetic treatments, will deep-dive into the aesthetic lives of patients and the medical professionals who treat them as they shape the future of this field. It will take place in the Amphitheatre Bleu, Level 2 on Friday, January 27, from 4:00 to 6:00 PM CET.
