Restylane Eyelight is the first and only product in the U.S. to use NASHA® Technology to improve the appearance of undereye hollows for up to 18 months1

DALLAS, TEXAS – June 5, 2023 – Galderma announced today the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Restylane® Eyelight for the treatment of undereye hollows, also known as dark shadows, in adults over the age of 21.1 Restylane Eyelight, an undereye hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler, is the first and only product in the U.S. formulated with NASHA® Technology for volume loss under the eyes, giving patients natural-looking results.1

“Restylane Eyelight is an exciting new treatment option for patients. Formulated with NASHA Technology, this filler is close to the body’s natural hyaluronic acid with minimal crosslinking and produces a firm gel texture (or ‘supportive gel’) that is resistant to water absorption, which makes Restylane Eyelight a safe, natural-looking solution for volume loss under the eyes.2-4

For millions of Americans, dark circles can make individuals feel older, tired and stressed.5 Dr. Carolyn Jacob, a board-certified dermatologist based in Chicago and a lead investigator in the clinical trial of Restylane Eyelight sees firsthand how undereye concerns are top of mind for consumers.

“Many of my patients seek treatment for hollows under the eyes, and topical products such as creams, concealers and undereye masks just aren’t able to solve the problem and provide the long-lasting results they are seeking. I’m pleased to see that Restylane Eyelight offers a safe, effective and natural-looking outcome that enables my patients to achieve their aesthetic undereye goals, with results that last up to 18 months with optimal treatment.1,6

This FDA approval is supported by efficacy and safety data from a randomized, evaluator-blinded, parallel group, no-treatment controlled, multi-center Phase 3 study to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of Restylane Eyelight for correction of volume loss under the eyes.6

Lack of volume and volume loss in the undereye region can create shadows and emphasize dark circles, leading to the appearance of tiredness and/or aging.7 In the Phase 3 study, 87% of patients* had reduced undereye hollowness at 3 months,6† and Restylane Eyelight was found to be well tolerated under the eyes. At 3 months, 92% of patients* were pleased with their results, and 84% were still pleased through 1 year.6 The study also yielded high satisfaction, with 93% of patients* expressing interest in receiving treatment again after 12 months.6

Restylane’s legacy with safety continues with this Phase 3 trial where most patients* (87%) did not experience adverse events related to treatment with Restylane Eyelight,6 giving patients a new treatment option that is safe and effective for the under eyes.

The most commonly observed side effects for undereye injection are swelling, redness, tenderness, pain, bruising, itching, and lumps or bumps at the injection site.1,6 Most adverse events were mild in severity (75%) and none were severe. There was no incidence of Tyndall effect (blue discoloration) after treatment with Restylane Eyelight.

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. Delayed-onset inflammation near the site of dermal filler injections is one of the known adverse events associated with dermal fillers, and cases have been reported to occur at the dermal filler treatment site following viral or bacterial illnesses or infections, vaccinations, or dental procedures. Typically, the reported inflammation was responsive to treatment or resolved on its own. 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.
