Galderma launches FACE by Galderma™, a cutting-edge aesthetic visualization tool that simulates injectable treatment results in real-time
DALLAS, March 22, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Galderma announced today the launch of FACE by Galderma™, an innovative aesthetic visualization tool powered by augmented reality (AR) that allows aesthetic professionals and patients to visualize injectable treatment results* at the planning stage before treatment begins. This innovative solution gives patients a simulated real-time "before and after" visual of what may be possible from an individualized treatment plan and may help alleviate patient concerns about injectable results.
"We created FACE by Galderma as part of our commitment to supporting aesthetic professionals and patients on their aesthetic journey. With the real-time, simulated injectable results feature, patients can see how injectable treatments such as Restylane® and Sculptra® might enhance or restore facial features before ever undergoing treatment. We believe that by delivering a holistic approach to individualized care, we can empower patients to move ahead with their treatment plan with added confidence."
FACE by Galderma allows for an immersive, fully interactive consultation process between the aesthetic practitioner and patient. With the tool's assessment, the aesthetic practitioner can evaluate the patient's face, including skin quality, facial shape, facial proportion and contour, facial symmetry and animated and emotional expression. The aesthetic professional can use the simulation to identify and tailor an individualized treatment plan to respond to the patient's needs and aesthetic goals. FACE by Galderma features augmented reality to simulate a patient's potential injectable results* using products from the company's aesthetic portfolio.
"FACE by Galderma has been instrumental in empowering my patients to feel confident about their treatment as they can see in real-time the effect of injectables. Patients came into my practice genuinely excited to analyze their faces, and it often motivated them to try new aesthetic treatments since they had a better understanding of how their results could look."
*Simulation. Individual results may vary.
The tool acts as a patient passport, allowing patients to access and view their individual patient profile from home.
"Patients come to my practice for a consultation because they are interested in an aesthetic injectable procedure, and they often have questions and are apprehensive about how the procedure will turn out and whether it will look natural and address their wrinkles. The advanced technology available via the new FACE by Galderma tool provides my patients with a simulation of their outcome in advance of the procedure, which should help alleviate their concerns and build trust."
*Simulation. Individual results may vary.
The technology behind FACE by Galderma was developed in partnership with Crisalix, a world leader in the field of 3D, virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality aesthetic simulation.

Do not use if you have severe allergies with a history of severe reactions (anaphylaxis), are allergic to lidocaine or gram-positive bacterial proteins used to make hyaluronic acid, prone to bleeding, or have a bleeding disorder. The safety of use while pregnant or breastfeeding has not been studied. Tell your doctor if you have a history of scarring or pigmentation disorders as these side effects can occur with hyaluronic acid fillers. Tell your doctor if you are planning other cosmetic treatments (i.e., lasers and chemical peels) as there is a possible risk of inflammation at the injection site.
Tell your doctor if you're taking medications that lower your body's immune response or affect bleeding, such as aspirin or warfarin, as these medications may increase the risk of bruising or bleeding at the gel injection site. Using these products on gel injection sites with skin sores, pimples, rashes, hives, cysts, or infections should be postponed until healing is complete.
The most common side effects are swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache, tenderness, lump formation, itching at the injection site, and impaired hand function. Serious but rare side effects include delayed onset infections, recurrence of herpetic eruptions, and superficial necrosis at the injection site. The risk of unintentional injection into a blood vessel is small but can occur and could result in serious complications, which may be permanent including, vision abnormalities, blindness, stroke, temporary scabs, or permanent scarring of the skin. As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.
To report a side effect with any Restylane® product, please call Galderma Laboratories, L.P. at 1-855-425-8722.

SCULPTRA IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
Important Safety Information
Sculptra has unique injection requirements and should only be used by a trained healthcare practitioner. Contour deficiencies should not be overcorrected because they are expected to gradually improve after treatment.

Sculptra should not be injected into the red area (vermillion) of the lip or in the peri-orbital area.
The most common side effects after initial treatment include injection site swelling, tenderness, redness, pain, bruising, bleeding, itching and lumps. Other side effects may include small lumps under the skin that are sometimes noticeable when pressing on the treated area.
