Menarini Group, Italy’s largest bio-pharmaceutical company, recently launched RELIFE in the Philippines, a new worldwide company that specializes in dermatology and aesthetic medicine. The Menarini Group has more than 130 years’ experience in the pharmaceutical industry, and is the leading Italian pharmaceutical company in the world. 

With the launch of RELIFE, Filipino men and women aged between 30 to 60 years old now have the choice of taking anti-aging treatments in their own terms.

With its global headquarters in Florence, Italy; the cradle of the Renaissance; RELIFE draws on its dual scientific and artistic heritage to create beauty. Its science-based products and treatment protocols reflect its scientific heritage while the company’s concept of conscious innovation embodies its artistic heritage.

RELIFE believes the skin mirrors your well-being. That’s why RELIFE offers healthcare practitioners (HCPs) a holistic approach to aesthetic medicine giving a natural-looking, youthful appearance. This is achieved with a combination of unique products and treatment techniques developed in collaboration with leading HCPs/ specialists and the global scientific community. 

The RELIFE aesthetic range consist of two core products: Happy Lift, and Skinfill.

Dr. Jaime Arzadon, Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon, presents Happy Lift.

HAPPY LIFT is a patented line of absorbable, monofilament, suspension barbed threads designed to lift and hold soft and/or sagging facial tissues for a refreshed look and more defined facial contours. Happy Lift is made of unique materials poly-L-lactic acid and caprolactone. 

Unlike some conventional sutures which are smooth, Happy Lift threads have tiny barbs. Once inserted into the skin, these tiny barbs stimulate the fibroblasts to synthesize the extracellular matrix and collagen in the skin that act as scaffolding to lift and hold soft facial tissues in place, giving longer-lasting results than most other kinds of sutures.

Dr. Steven Kusmanto, Associate Marketing Director for A. Menarini Asia Pacific presents SkinFill Plus.

SKINFILL is developed based on the patented COESIX® Plus technology, an effective cross-linking technology that allows the filler to be optimally balanced between duration and moldability. It is made of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally occurring in the human body and cross-linked with butanediol diglycidyl ether (BDDE) for increased stability. 

Together with collagen and elastin, hyaluronic acid is responsible for the skin’s youthful appearance. SKINFILL is used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, restore lost volume, and reshape facial features.

Conscious Innovation

RELIFE provides HCPs with the knowledge, training, and products they need to cater to their patients’ desires, while adhering to a standardized educational platform ICME (Innovation and Consciousness in Medical Education).
