Q-MED launches a new product for the treatment of fine superficial lines. Q-Med has obtained approval in Europe for sales of the esthetics product RESTYLANE Touch. RESTYLANE Touch is used for the treatment of fine superficial lines and is a further development of the previous product RESTYLANE Fine Lines. The substance, and thereby the product's injection properties, have been improved. RESTYLANE Touch achieves smoother lifting of fine superficial lines around the eyes and mouth in a natural and safe way. "RESTYLANE Touch enables us to strengthen our position as market leader regarding both small and larger, deeper wrinkles," says Anna Tenstam Lundvall, Vice President of the Esthetics Business Unit. Like Q-Med's other esthetics products, RESTYLANE Touch is based on the company's patented NASHA technology.
