Captique

Captique is one of the latest hyaluronic dermal fillers on the market. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Captique in 2004 as a safe and effective treatment of wrinkles and folds in the skin.

Captique is a non-animal hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler designed to temporarily smooth out facial lines and wrinkles that develop with age. The clear gel is injected just beneath the surface of the skin to replenish volume and replace natural elements in the face to achieve a youthful appearance.

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the most popular non-invasive cosmetic surgery procedure in the last five years has been the use of dermal fillers like Captique. Captique, however, is softer than most fillers and produces more favorable effects than similar hyaluronic-based fillers.

Captique can be used alone to treat different areas of the face including crow's feet, nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines (lip corners), and vertical lip lines. It can also be used in conjunction with other wrinkle correctors that contain collagen to achieve the best possible results.

By using hyaluronic acid-based fillers in combination with collagen-based fillers , you can rejuvenate the volume, structural support, and definition in your skin to achieve the elements of a youthful appearance.

As with any other cosmetic procedure, you may experienced some temporary side effects with the use of Captique including bruising, redness, swelling, pain and itching where the substance was injected.

Rare side effects may include tissue hardening and lumps/bumps around the area. It is important to limit exposure of the treated area to extreme sun, UV rays, and cold weather until redness and swelling has subsided. To reduce further chance of side effects, it is important that your Captique injections are administered by a licensed medical practitioner in a safe setting.

While Captique is a safe and effective procedure, it is not for everyone. Captique is not recommended for use in patients who have hypertrophic scarring, skin pigmentation disorders, and susceptibility to keloid formation. Keep in mind that the safety and effectiveness of Captique has not been evaluated in people under 18 years of age, or in pregnant or breastfeeding women.

Treatment costs for Captique vary depending on who performs the procedure and where the procedure is performed. The price of Captique can range anywhere from $250 to $1,000 per treated area. The treatment typically lasts from four to six months and touch-ups every six to 12 months are recommended to maintain a youthful appearance.
