Galderma Laboratories, L.P.,’s Restylane® Lyft is partnering with celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann for the "Face Your Hands" campaign, which aims to educate women on the steps they can take to achieve more youthful hands.
According to a recent survey conducted by Galderma, nearly 2 in 3 women (65 percent) age 40 and over think their hands make them look older than their age. Restylane Lyft is the only hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler FDA-approved to help reverse the signs of volume loss in aging hands. Radiesse (Calcium Hydroxylapatite) is also approved for the correction of lost volume in hands.
As part of the initiative, Lippmann will connect with women across the country and share her nail care and manicure tips along with her personal experience with Restylane Lyft for hands.
"As a nail expert, I take steps to keep my hands looking their best, including daily use of sunscreen and hand cream. However, no matter what I did, I felt like the skin on the back of my hands made me look older than my age," she says in a news release. "I am so glad that Restylane Lyft is now FDA approved for the hands. I have used Restylane® dermal fillers for years to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles on my face, and I like the natural–looking results. Now I can help improve the appearance of my aging hands, and share my anti-aging hand care tips with others."
"Like Deborah Lippmann, many of my patients notice that their hands do not look as youthful as their faces, but they can't pinpoint the reason. As you get older, the natural fat in the hands begins to deteriorate, and the underlying tendons and veins become more pronounced," adds New York City dermatologist Doris Day, MD. "These are signs of volume loss which requires more than topical creams or lasers to treat. The ideal option is an injectable dermal filler like Restylane Lyft, the first and only HA filler for the hands.
*The Restylane Survey was conducted among 1,000 nationally representative U.S. women, ages 35+, between February 26 and March 5, 2018, using an email invitation and an online survey. The data points in this release represent data collected among women ages 40+ (N=741).
