- Launching in the fourth largest aesthetic toxin injectables market in Europe1 is part of the company’s geographic expansion strategy
- GP Dermal Solution will serve as distribution partner in Italy
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Evolus, Inc. (NASDAQ: EOLS), a performance beauty company focused on building an aesthetic portfolio, has commenced the commercial launch of Nuceiva® (botulinum toxin type A) in Italy. The product is now available for direct order and delivery to customers.
Nuceiva® is approved by the European Commission for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe vertical lines between the eyebrows seen at maximum frown (glabellar lines), when the severity of the above facial lines has an important psychological impact in adults below 65 years of age2.
“We are excited to introduce Nuceiva® to medical aesthetics customers in Italy, one of the largest aesthetic toxin markets in Europe1 and a crucial step in growing our global footprint,” said David Moatazedi, President and CEO of Evolus Inc. “Expanding within the dynamic European market continues to be a strategic ambition and will help fuel Evolus’ market growth, globally.”
Evolus is partnering with GP Dermal Solution, a pioneering company in the Italian cosmetic and wellness sector. Working closely with their suppliers, GP Dermal Solution delivers specialist products to aesthetics practitioners across Italy. In addition to Italy, Nuceiva® is currently commercially available in Canada, Germany, Austria and Great Britain. The product is licensed in the United States under the brand name Jeuveau® and in 2022, was the fastest growing neurotoxin in the U.S. market.3
“I’m pleased to start offering Nuceiva® to my patients. They are looking for targeted and natural-looking results to improve the appearance of facial lines.” said Dr. Erminio Mastroluca, a plastic and aesthetic surgeon from Rome. “As I’m gaining real world experience, I have the opportunity to deliver more of what my patients want – precision-driven results using innovative products supported by robust clinical data.”
“We understand the needs of our customers and patients are evolving. That’s why we are thrilled to bring a new neurotoxin to Italy,” said Dan Stewart, Vice President and General Manager, Evolus International. “By working with our partner, GP Dermal Solution, we will bring a range of educational programs and an easy-to-use online service platform to help customers grow their practice and deliver patient satisfaction with Nuceiva®.”
The safety and efficacy of Nuceiva® was evaluated through the company’s TRANSPARENCY clinical program – three Phase III trials4,5 including the largest head-to-head aesthetic pivotal study versus Botox® (onabotulinumtoxinA) to date, and two long-term safety studies6,7.
