What is Captique?

Captique was removed off market U.S. market.

Captique can be used to aid in correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles, such as the smile lines appearing between your mouth and nose and marionette lines that run downwards from the corners of your mouth.

Captique is injected under the skin's surface in order to temporarily eliminate wrinkles.


Captique increases the volume of the skin while smoothing wrinkles and lines and the result is immediately visible.


With time the gel will slowly disintegrate and then be taken up by the body.

After the initial treatment another treatment with Captique gel might be required to reach the desired level of correction.


The need for a second treatment may differ from patient to patient.
