PRO 2019-04 CAN

Research Trial for Mid-face Volume Deficit (15 Months)

Age: 22 Years

Individuals 22 years of age through 65 years of age with age-related mid-face volume deficit, may qualify to participate. Looking for individuals seeking augmentation therapy for the mid-face with: moderate loss of fullness with slight hollowing, or substantial loss of fullness in the mid-face area and clearly apparent hollowing, on each side of the face. Must abstain from any other facial procedures or treatments affecting facial volume deficit, during the study.

Every participant will receive the test product on one side of the face, and the comparator on the other side of the face, via injection. Study treatment and study-related procedures will be provided at no cost. Reimbursement for study-related expenses will also be provided.

Study participation will last about 15 months and involve about 8 visits to the study centre, plus a phone call. Additional visits may be required if any touch-up or re-treatment is needed.

Inclusion Criteria:

Men or non-pregnant, non-breastfeeding women 22 years of age through 65 years of age.
Subjects seeking augmentation therapy for the mid-face with a MMVS score of 3 (moderate loss of fullness with slight hollowing) or 4 (substantial loss of fullness in the mid-face area, clearly apparent hollowing) on each side of the face as independently assessed by the blinded Evaluating Investigator and the unblinded Treating Investigator

History of keloid formation or hypertrophic scars.
