Two World-Class Organizations Redefine 'Partner of Choice' by Joining Forces Delivering Leading Facial Rejuvenation and Breast Augmentation Solutions
THORNHILL, ON, Sept. 14, 2016 /CNW/ - Galderma, a global leader in medical solutions for skin health, and Mentor Worldwide LLC, a global leader in breast aesthetics and reconstruction, today announce plans for a new nationwide collaboration to partner with Canadian surgeons to elevate the patient experience across the innovative aesthetic and corrective brands and offerings of both companies. The two world-class organizations intend to collaborate to redefine what it means to be "partner of choice" for advancing patient outcomes in aesthetic medicines.
Galderma and Mentor will provide a tailored offering to healthcare professionals who have shared patients looking for aesthetic injectable treatments and breast enhancement. Data show up to 33% of women who had injectable treatments also had breast augmentation1. This collaboration will provide additional value for cosmetic practices by increasing access to a robust range of technologically-advanced and scientifically-proven solutions for facial rejuvenation and breast augmentation.
The collaboration between Galderma and Mentor demonstrates the commitment of both companies to be the partner of choice within the aesthetics industry and emphasizes the shared goal of providing long-term value to healthcare specialists while broadening consumers' access to and awareness of aesthetic treatment options. It is comprised of Galderma's aesthetic brands, including the Restylane® and Emervel® family of fillers, Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA) and Sculptra® Aesthetic, along with Mentor's MemoryGel® Breast Implant portfolio, for the Canadian aesthetics (non-reimbursed) market. Through this uniquely-designed collaboration, the two companies will look for opportunities to leverage market growth strategies to benefit both healthcare providers and consumers.
