Latest dermal filler EMERVEL® now available in Canada


New filler to provide customized, natural-looking results for 18 months1  

THORNHILL, ON, Oct. 16, 2015 /CNW/ - Galderma Canada Inc. today announced the availability of EMERVEL®, the latest range of hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers. Benefitting from Optimal Balance Technology, EMERVEL helps smooth away facial lines and wrinkles and defines and restores volume for immediate, noticeable, yet natural-looking results. 

While genetics, facial expressions, diet and sun exposure can age one's facial appearance, it is also caused by changes in facial structure and the gradual loss of facial volume2 and HA, a natural substance in the body that helps the skin maintain moisture.2  Over time, we make less HA and this diminishes skin volume and elasticity, making the visible signs of aging more noticeable.3 

The good news is that HA can be restored with EMERVEL, a unique innovation of non-permanent dermal fillers that can help improve the shape of your face by gently adding subtle volume and definition to the cheeks, lips, or other facial features to give a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

No two people age the same way   

Just as everyone's skin is different, everyone ages differently, with wrinkles appearing at different depths and locations on the face.  By offering a range of fillers with Optimal Balance Technology™ for use in different layers of the skin including EMERVEL® Classic, EMERVEL® Deep, EMERVEL® Volume and EMERVEL® Lips, physicians can tailor treatment to specific skin needs.4  Delivering an excellent combination of tolerability and aesthetic outcomes whatever the depth, area and volume correction, EMERVEL fillers integrate completely and gently into different layers of the skin for natural-looking results that last up to 18 months.1,3,5,6

According to Vancouver dermatologist Dr. Frances Jang, EMERVEL® represents an exciting innovation in the evolution of the safest class of dermal fillers.  "Hyaluronic fillers mimic normal skin structure and function and the Emervel line in particular provides a safe cosmetic dermal enhancement applicable to many areas of the face.  With over 500,000 treatments in Europe since 2008, these numbers speak to its long term safety, efficacy and tolerability. Looking your best without appearing overdone is possible with Emervel," says Dr. Jang.

Grace in Aging Survey results7

According to the recent survey Grace in Aging, commissioned by Galderma Canada and conducted by Harris Poll, which surveyed Canadian women between the ages of 35 and 65 about their facial appearance and aging, half (52%) of respondents are worried (very or somewhat) about the signs of facial aging. In fact, some of the top concerns when it comes to facial aging include sagging skin (51%) and deep wrinkles (43%). 

And our pervasive camera culture, especially as a result of selfies and social media has women even more concerned about their facial appearance, with 41% of respondents citing it as a top contributor to anxiety over their aging face.  Interestingly, the majority of surveyed women only want to turn back the clock an average of 11 years, in an attempt to freeze their appearance at what they perceive to be their optimal "beautiful" age.

The good news is that most Canadian women feel empowered to make decisions about how they age, independent of outside pressure.  Although they are very/somewhat strongly influenced by spouses (52%), family (42%) and mass media (13%) when it comes to making decisions about their facial appearance, the majority (79%) want to make decisions about how they age on their own terms.  And among the 1 in 4 women who would consider using a cosmetic facial injection, they want it to be safe (89%), provide natural looking results (83%) and be long lasting (73%).

If Canadian women choose a "little help" to address their facial appearance, EMERVEL® a non-invasive and safe dermal filler is now available to address their identified concerns by offering access to long-lasting and youthful-looking skin.

For more information, interested patients can speak to a dermatologist or visit to see real results and find a qualified EMERVEL® practitioner in their area.

About the EMERVEL® range of fillers

From the distributors of Restylane®, the most-studied dermal filler in the world and used in over 20 million treatments worldwide8, the EMERVEL® range of fillers is specifically designed to best match the different facial areas to provide physicians the most appropriate filler for a tailor-made correction approach.

For ultimate patient comfort, all the EMERVEL formulations are available with lidocaine, a numbing agent.

EMERVEL® Classic provides a medium lifting effect, and is commonly used to treat moderate wrinkles and lines – for example nose to mouth lines (nasolabial folds).

EMERVEL® Deep offers a solution for deep wrinkles/folds or to replace lost volume under the skin. Ideal for use on deep nose to mouth lines (nasolabial folds) and sad mouth corners (marionette lines).

EMERVEL® Volume is the solution for enhancing and restoring lost facial volume to areas such as your cheeks. EMERVEL® Volume restores and adds support to the skin's structure giving a smoother, fuller and more youthful appearance.

EMERVEL® Lips can subtly enhance the fullness of the lip body and add definition to the border to create soft, natural looking lips.
