Gouri – The World’s First Injectable Liquid Polycaprolactone
As we age, our body starts producing less collagen . Collagen production rate of someone in his or her 50s is half of that when he or she was in the 30s. All of us are aware that replenishing and stimulating new collagen is the key when comes to anti-aging treatments as collagen functions as the framework for supporting our skin.
For this reason, Dexlevo, a company from Korea, has invented the word’s first liquid type PCL (Polycaprolactone) which is known as Gouri, with its patented CESABP (Collagenesis-Enabled Solubilized Active and Biodegradable Polymer) technology.
What is polycaprolactone (PCL)?
PCL is a biocompatible and biodegradable polymer that often used as an implantable biomaterial. By stimulating collagen regeneration, PCL-based products can reverse the signs of aging such as wrinkles, skin laxity and dull skin.
CESABP technology enables regeneration of natural skin collagen without the use of microparticles, which means it can be homogenously solubilised in water, spreading easily over the extensive part of the skin, generating collagen synthesis on the entire face.
What are the benefits of Gouri?
- Premium collagen stimulator
- Only 4 injection points for a full face treatment
- Smoothen fine lines and wrinkles
- Improves skin laxity and texture
- Provides gentle lifting effect
- Improves skin volume
- More even skin tone and radiant complexion
Who is suitable for Gouri?
Gouri is recommended for anyone who is having signs of skin aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity and volume loss. It can be injected on face, neck and hands for rejuvenating effects.
What is the treatment protocol?
For best results, 3 treatments are recommended at 4-weeks interval.
After the 3rd treatment, maintenance treatment is required at 9 to 12 months interval, depending on the patient’s condition.
For a full face treatment, each session required 2ml of Gouri, to be injected on 4 points.
Is Gouri safe? Any side effects?
As Gouri is free of microparticles with fully solubilized PCL, the possibility of side effects caused by vascular obstruction and granuloma formation is much lower.
After the treatment, there may be bumps on the injection sites which usually resolve after 24 to 48 hours. As other injectable treatments, bruises may occur due to the needle injections, they will subside within a week.
When can I get visible results after the treatment? How long can it last?
Normally within 1 to 2 weeks, you will be able to see visible results. Result varies with each individual, some patients may take up to a month to see results. It takes on average 6 to 12 months for PCL to be degraded in our body.
Can I combine Gouri with other treatments such as Botox, HA filler and skin boosters?
Gouri can be combined with Botox and non-crosslinked skin boosters. However, for cross-linked HA fillers it is recommended to space out one month before or after the treatment.
