Captique is a popular and effective hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler which is used to treat wrinkles, lines, and other skin creases, as well as to add measurable volume which has been lost through the natural aging process. The product is especially popular for the treatment of crow’s feet, lip lines, and nasolabial folds, those lines which can appear between the edge of the nose and the corners of the mouth as we age. Captique is also an ideal filler for lip augmentation, as well as for filling out sunken cheeks or diminished jawlines.
Hylauronic acid occurs naturally in the body, trapping water and imparting skin with a full, youthful firmness. During the aging process, natural hyaluronic acid beings to dissipate, leaving skin sagging and sunken looking. The Captique filler product acts to replace the naturally formed hyaluronic acid which is lost through aging. Once in the skin, Captique fills the space between elastin fibers and collagen, attracting and holding moisture and acting as a cushioning agent, filling sunken areas and “plumping” skin and restoring skin’s youthful appearance.
Captique is injected beneath the skin using a small needle during a procedure which takes about 20 minutes to an hour. In some cases, the specialist may apply a topical anesthetic prior to the treatment. There is no downtime associated with the use of Captique, and individuals can go back to their regular activities immediately following the procedure.
Results of the Captique procedure can last from 4 months to 1 year in most individuals, and results can be prolonged through the use of maintenance injections.
The cost of Captique treatment is based on the number of syringes required, generally ranging from $400 to $500 per syringe. Most procedures require 1 or 2 syringes. Usually the treatment is repeated every 4 to 6 months.
