Evolus Initiates Nuceiva® Launch in Germany and Austria

Tuesday, February 28, 2023

Evolus, Inc., a performance beauty company with a customer-centric approach focused on delivering breakthrough products, has commenced the commercial launch of Nuceiva® (botulinum toxin type A) in Germany and Austria, and 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 customers in Germany and Austria, the second largest aesthetic toxin market in Europe1,” said David Moatazedi, President and CEO of Evolus Inc. “Entering this dynamic European market is the latest in a series of geographical expansion milestones that will help fuel Evolus’ above market average growth in the underpenetrated aesthetic neurotoxin market.”

Evolus is partnering with Novvia, a leading supplier of specialist products to aesthetics practitioners, to commercialize the product in Germany and Austria. The company expects to enter additional European countries as well as Australia in 2023. In addition to Germany and Austria, Nuceiva® is currently commercially available in Canada and Great Britain – the largest aesthetic market in Europe1. The product is also approved for sale in the U.S. under the brand name Jeuveau®.

“With the availability of Nuceiva® in Germany, I will now have more choice. My practice has the opportunity to deliver more of what my patients want - precision-driven results using innovative products supported by robust clinical data,” said Dr. med. Thomas Zimmermann, Dermatologist, international aesthetic expert and founder of Dr. Zimmermann Aesthetic Institute. “This product, along with the company’s medical education and training programs and modern manufacturing standards, will be instrumental in evolving my practice and ultimately meeting the needs of my patients.”

“We understand the importance of choice – not just to patients, but also to our customers, and we’re thrilled to bring a new neurotoxin to Germany and Austria,” said Dan Stewart, Vice President and General Manager, Evolus International. “Along with our distributor partner Novvia, we are offering educational programs to aesthetic doctors so they can learn more about how to use this specific product and evolve their practice.”

The safety and efficacy of Nuceiva® was evaluated through the company’s TRANSPARENCY clinical program - three Phase III trials3,4 including the largest head-to-head aesthetic pivotal study versus Botox® (onabotulinumtoxinA) to date, and two long-term safety studies.
