SEOUL, South Korea, June 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — South Korean company Samyang Holdings Biopharm Group, led by representative Lee Young-joon, is set to expand into the global medical aesthetics market with its biodegradable polymer filler, Lafullen®.
Samyang Holdings signed a partnership agreement with Hangzhou Yxintent, a Chinese medical devices and aesthetics specialist company for the export of Lafullen® at Samyang Discovery Center in Pangyo. Through this contract, Yxintent will conduct clinical trials and obtain approval for Lafullen® in China, and once approved, will exclusively sell Lafullen® in China.
