FDA OKs Allergan's long-duration next-gen HA filler for nasolabial folds

|About: Allergan plc (AGN)|By:, SA News Editor

The FDA approves Allergan's (NYSE:AGN) JUVEDERM VOLLURE XC for the correction of moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial (smile lines) folds, in adults at least 21 years old. It will be commercially available starting next month.

The company says JUVEDERM VOLLURE XC is formulated with its proprietary VYCROSS technology that gives the gel extended duration (up to 18 months) by virtue of blending different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid (HA). It was approved in Europe in 2013 under the brand name JUVEDERM VOLIFT.
