Evolus Broadens International Presence with Launch of Nuceiva® (botulinum toxin type A) in Spain

  • Launching in one of the five largest aesthetic toxin injectable markets in Europe1 as part of the company’s geographic expansion strategy
  • Evolus to provide Nuceiva® for direct order and delivery to Spanish medical aesthetics healthcare professionals

Evolus, Inc. (NASDAQ: EOLS), a performance beauty company focused on building an aesthetic portfolio, has commercially launched Nuceiva® (botulinum toxin type A) in Spain. The product is now available for direct order and delivery to Spanish medical aesthetics healthcare professionals.

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.

"Launching our direct operations in Spain, one of Europe's largest aesthetic markets, underscores our commitment to strategic geographic expansion," said David Moatazedi, President and CEO of Evolus. "This milestone supports our goal of fueling market growth worldwide by establishing a strong presence in key regions. Our continued success in entering new markets positions us for sustained above-market growth in the aesthetic neurotoxin sector."

Evolus is establishing a direct operating entity in Spain, under the leadership of Maria Cudeiro, General Manager, Spain, Portugal and Switzerland. Working closely with aesthetics healthcare professionals will enable Evolus to offer this new treatment to patients. Nuceiva® is licensed in the United States under the brand name Jeuveau® and is the fastest-growing neurotoxin in the United States for three consecutive years*.

“We know that beauty is evolving and recognize the importance of supporting our healthcare professional customers as they adapt to changing trends. I am confident that Maria Cudeiro will successfully establish Evolus in Spain, introducing a new neurotoxin to Spanish customers," said Dan Stewart, Vice President and General Manager of Evolus International. "By delivering great customer services, innovative educational programs and user-friendly online platforms we aim to enhance the practice of Spanish healthcare professionals as they deliver exceptional patient experiences.”

“Offering treatments that deliver pleasing and long-lasting results to my patients is a priority for me,” said Dr. Jaime Tufet, Medical Director at Clinica Tufet, one of Spain’s premier aesthetic clinics. “We are very pleased to be able to offer Nuceiva® to our patients.”

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 studies5,6. Side effects were similar to others in this class of medicine. For the full list of adverse events, warnings and contraindications consult the Nuceiva® SmPC.
