GOURI is the new type of injectable treatment from Korea that improves skin elasticity and encourages collagen synthesis. Unlike fillers, GOURI contains 100% liquid-type PCL (Polycaprolactone).
What is Gouri?
Gouri is the world’s first and only liquid-type PCL that generates collagen synthesis, making the skin younger and healthier. Using patented ECESABP technology, Gouri is able to regenerate natural skin collagen without the use of microparticles. The anti-ageing properties of PCL allow Gouri to reverse signs of ageing, such as volume loss and facial laxity, with natural and long-lasting results.
As a new type of bio-stimulant injectable, Gouri’s liquid-type properties allow it to be spread evenly across the face with few injection points. Being fully solubilised, biodegradable and bio-compatible, Gouri distinguishes itself from hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers and skinboosters by overcoming their many limitations.
What makes Gouri different?
Gouri has fewer injection sites compared to other types of skin injectables as its liquid-type properties allow it to smoothly spread across the skin and stimulate fibroblasts and collagen formation.
While both Gouri and Profhilo require only 10 injection points for the entire face, their intended results differ as Gouri contains liquid-type PCL and Profhilo contains 100% hyaluronic acid.
On the other hand, Ellansé and Gouri are both PCL-based injectables, but Ellansé contains crosslinked PCL that is injected to volumise specific focal areas strategically (e.g. nose, chin, forehead) by stimulating localised neo-collagenesis, while Gouri’s liquid-type properties allow it to produce more generalised results over the whole face for lifting, volumisation and an overall glow. Signs of ageing are reversed with Gouri without any need to change specific features on the patient’s face.
Gouri provides natural and sustainable improvements for signs of ageing by restoring the rate of collagen production which decreases as we age. As a bio-stimulating injectable, Gouri rejuvenates the skin directly via neocollagenesis which sets it apart from HA dermal fillers that temporarily restores volume to the skin.
Gouri is FDA-approved. It is non-toxic, non-mutagenic, non-pyrogenic and totally biocompatible. As the PCL used is fully solubilised and microparticle-free, the risks of side effects caused by vascular obstruction or granuloma formation are significantly reduced.
What skin concerns can Gouri treat?
- Fine lines and wrinkles like crow’s feet & smile lines
- Saggy skin and facial contours
- Sunken eyes or cheeks
- Improve skin’s texture and appearance
The Veritas Difference
At Veritas, we carry a wide range of injectable treatments to best address our patients’ needs. We recommend Gouri for patients looking to reverse signs of ageing by countering collagen loss. Our doctors provide customised protocols for patients who may experience facial ageing more severely in some parts of the face, and may combine other skinbooster injectable treatments to target the different concerns of the face, maximising results.
Gouri only requires about 10 injection sites for full face lifting (5 injection points each side of the face). Customised protocol may be used depending on the patient’s specific concerns.
There is minimal downtime. You may experience some swelling or injection welts but these will typically subside after 48 hours.
Results can be seen after 1 session. In order to initiate the targeted bio-stimulation effects for long-lasting outcomes, 2 to 3 sessions once a month are recommended for best results.
For maintenance, one session every 6 to 12 months is sufficient as Gouri is intended to be a long-lasting collagen stimulating treatment.
Your doctor will best advise you depending on your skin concern.
Gouri is highly compatible with other products but it is advised to wait for one month before and after any other treatment. Please consult your doctor should you have any other treatment or procedures that you would like to do concurrently.
Patients typically can see results after the first 4 weeks of first application. After the initial 2-3 sessions, you should notice visible and long-lasting improvements to signs of ageing: smoothening of fine lines and wrinkles, more elasticity and bounce to the skin, lifting of facial laxity.
Gouri was certified safe according to ISO standards by NAMSA, USA. It is non-toxic, non-mutagenic, non-pyrogenic and biocompatible. There hasn’t been any severe side effects reported with Gouri
