WARNINGS

  • The product must not be injected into blood vessels. Introduction of Oldream® Silk injectable gel into the vasculature may lead to embolization, occlusion of the vessels, ischemia, or infarction. Take extra care when using soft tissue fillers. For example, after insertion of the needle, and just before injection, the plunger rod can be withdrawn slightly to aspirate and verify the needle is not intravascular. Then, apply the product slowly, and apply the least amount of pressure necessary. Rare, but serious, adverse events associated with the intravascular injection of soft-tissue fillers in the face have been reported and include temporary or permanent vision impairment, blindness, cerebral ischemia or cerebral hemorrhage leading to stroke, skin necrosis, and damage to underlying facial structures. Immediately stop the injection if a patient exhibits any of the following symptoms, including changes in vision, signs of stroke, blanching of the skin, or unusual pain during or shortly after the procedure. Patients should receive prompt medical attention and possibly evaluation by an appropriate health care professional or specialist should an intravascular injection occur.
  • Product use at specific sites in which an active inflammatory process (skin eruptions such as cysts, pimples, rashes, or hives) or infection is present should be deferred until the underlying process has been controlled.
  • Injection site responses consist mainly of short-term inflammatory symptoms starting early after treatment and lasting ≤ 7 days.

PREGAUTIONS

  • Oldream® Silk injectable gel is packaged for single-patient use. Do not re-sterilize. Opened or damaged packages should not be used.
  • To minimize potential complications, this product should only be used by healthcare professionals who have appropriate training, experience, and knowledge of the anatomy at and around the site of injection. Health care professionals are encouraged to discuss all aspects of risks of soft-tissue injection with their patients prior to treatment and ensure that patients are aware of signs and symptoms of potential complications.
  • Generally, patients should be limited to 20 mL of Oldream® Silk injectable gel per 60 kg (130 lbs) body mass per year. Injecting greater amounts has not been proven safe.
  • Safety and effectiveness of treating anatomic regions other than the lips and perioral area have not been established.
  • As with all transcutaneous procedures, dermal filler implantation carries infection risk. Standard precautions associated with injectable materials should be followed.
  • Oldream® Silk injectable gel is used as supplied. Modification or use of the product outside the Directions for Use may adversely impact the product’s sterility, homogeneity, and performance.

B. Health Care Professional Instructions

  1. Oldream® Silk injectable gel is a cross-linked, soft, smooth gel formulation that can be injected using a fine gauge (e.g., 30G) needle into the lips and perioral area to add fullness and improve the shape of the lips, and to smooth perioral rhytids.
  2. Prior to treatment, the patient’s medical history should be obtained. The patient should be fully apprised of the indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions, treatment responses, adverse reactions, and method of administration. Patients also should be advised that supplemental “touch-up” treatments may be required to achieve and maintain maximum correction.
  3. The patient’s treatment goals should be characterized with regard to proper proportion of upper and lower lip, vertical height, horizontal length, vermilion fullness, contouring of the vermilion border, Cupid’s bow, and philtral columns, as well as perioral lip. rhytids and oral commissures. Pretreatment photographs are recommended.
  4. Supplementary anesthesia may be used for additional pain management during and after injections.
  5. After ensuring that the patient has thoroughly washed the treatment area with soap and water, the area should be swabbed with alcohol or other antiseptic. Prior to injecting, depress the plunger rod until the product flows out of the needle.
  6. After the first small amount of material has been injected into the patient, wait 3 seconds to allow the lidocaine to take effect. Then proceed with the rest of the injections.
  7. The injection technique may vary with regard to the angle and orientation of the bevel, the depth of injection, and the quantity administered. Tunneling technique, serial punctures. Technique, fanning technique, or a combination is used to achieve optimal results. Injecting the product too superficially may result in visible lumps and/or discoloration.
  8. Inject Oldream® Silk by applying slow and even pressure to the plunger rod. It is critical that the injection be stopped before the needle is pulled out of the skin. This is to prevent material from leaking out or being placed too tightly into the skin.
    9.If the needle is blocked, do not increase the plunger rod pressure. Instead, stop the injection and replace the needle.
  9. The typical volume injected into the lips and perioral area to achieve optimal correction is approximately 2.6 ml. This volume may vary depending on the goals the patient wishes to accomplish. Injection volumes into the lips and perioral area after repeated treatment tend to be lower. The typical total injection volume to achieve optimal correction is approximately 1.6 mL.
  10. Correct to 100% of the desired volume effect. Do not overcorrect. The degree and duration of correction depend on the character of the defect treated. They also depend on the tissue stress at the implant site, the depth of the implant in the tissue, and the injection technique. Markedly indurated defects may be difficult to correct.
  11. If immediate blanching occurs, the injection should be stopped and the area massaged until it returns to normal color. Blanching may represent a vessel occlusion. If normal skin coloring does not return, do not continue with the injection. Treat in accordance with Society for Dermatologic Surgery guidelines, which include hyaluronidase injections.
  12. When injection is completed, the treated site should be gently massaged so that it conforms to the contour of the surrounding tissues. If overcorrection occurs, massage the area between your fingers or against the underlying bone/teeth to obtain optimal results.
  13. With patients with localized swelling, the degree of correction is sometimes difficult to judge at the time of treatment. In these cases, it is better to invite the patient back to the office for a touch-up treatment.
  14. After the initial treatment, additional touch-up treatments may be required. Necessary to achieve the desired correction level. If further treatment is needed, the same procedure should be repeated until a satisfactory result is obtained. The need for additional treatment may vary from patient to patient. It is dependent upon a variety of factors such as treatment goals, lip fullness, perioral lines severity, skin elasticity, and dermal thickness at the treatment site.
  15. Patients may have mild to moderate injection site responses after treatment in the lips and perioral area, which typically resolve within 14 days. Ice may be applied for a brief period following treatment to minimize swelling and reduce pain.
  16. The health care professional should instruct the patient to promptly report to her/him any evidence of problems associated with the use of Oldream® Silk.
