For many patients, some of the best cosmetic solutions are found in the world of injectables.
Captique was FDA approved in 2004. Without further nanticipated side effects surfacing since that time, patients can feel assured that it is a safe and effective product.
Captique is a clear gel which contains a purified form of hyaluronic acid (HA) that impacts a multitude of body functions, including muscle and joint mobility, restoring moist, soft skin and vision improvement. Since HA is a naturally occurring substance found in the body, pre-testing for sensitivity to the product is not necessary.
Like other dermal fillers, Captique smoothes facial lines and wrinkles. It can be used to treat different areas on the face, including crow’s feet, nasolabial folds (smile lines), vertical lip lines and “marionette” lines (lip corners). Sometimes Captique is used in conjunction with other products that contain collagen to achieve an even more enhanced result. Captique is absorbed over time by your body so results last approximately 3 months. Periodic touch-ups are recommended if you want to maintain the more youthful appearance you get from dermal fillers.
Captique, like other dermal fillers, has few side effects. You may experience some tenderness, redness, swelling or slight bruising to the injected area. This is temporary and usually passes relatively quickly. You should avoid exposure to excessive sun or UV rays after receiving injections. Patients who are known to have hypertrophic scarring, skin pigmentation or any known allergies to bacterial proteins should not use Captique.
The dermal filler market has many product choices and a physician’s injection technique is extremely important in producing a good clinical outcome. A doctor’s medical knowledge is irreplaceable, even with something as seemingly straightforward as injectables. A physician’s extensive product knowledge is very helpful, and you will want to discuss the advantages of Captique and other dermal fillers before you have your treatment.
Dermatologists and plastic surgeons spend many years studying facial anatomy and the nuances of injecting products just under the skin’s surface. Therefore we recommend that you only let a board certified dermatologist or a board certified plastic surgeon administer your injectables. While other “licensed health professionals” may inject dermal fillers it is always good to follow the standard of having a physician do your treatment.
Patients interested in Captique might also want to learn about other fillers like Juvederm, Collagen and Restylane. Since the market for dermal fillers contains a number of choices you should talk to a board certified dermatologist or board certified plastic surgeon about your interest in injectables and see what is best for you.
Note: The specific risks and the suitability of Captique for a given individual can be determined only at the time of consultation with a physician. All procedures have some degree of risk. The information provided here is not a substitute for a consultation.
