What You Need to Know About GOURI: Benefits, Usage & More!

Want an anti-ageing solution that is safe and actually works? How about one that results in natural, gradual improvements that last for a long time?

If this is you, you may have just found the solution in GOURI.

Read on to learn more about this new and exciting treatment and see if it’s the right one for your skin aging woes!

What is GOURI?

GOURI is an anti-ageing injectable that enables regeneration of natural skin collagen.

It uses liquid polycaprolactone (PCL), an FDA-approved, implantable biomaterial used in drug delivery and sutures.

Being liquid, GOURI is easily and evenly absorbed and spread throughout the whole face, minimizing the chances of overcorrection.

Additionally, since PCL is solubilized, biodegradable, and biocompatible, rejection or immune response risks are very low.

Botox is a brand name for a specific botulinum toxin.

These toxins, at a safe level, work by inhibiting the contraction of muscles which results in temporary flaccid paralysis.

Put simply, Botox injections relax and prevent the muscles from moving, so they are ideal for stopping dynamic wrinkles such as frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines, and bunny lines from forming.

Botox injections can also treat teeth grinding, excessive sweating, and other health conditions.

What Is Collagen for?

Collagen is a protein naturally made in the body. It is responsible for giving structure to our tissues and plays a significant role in many cellular processes, such as cellular communication and migration, immune response, and tissue repair.

As we age, we produce less collagen. With less collagen, skin becomes thinner, drier, and less elastic, eventually leading to fine lines, wrinkles, volume loss, and contour laxity.

How Does GOURI Work?

Unlike existing fillers, GOURI stimulates new collagen production without the use of microparticles thanks to its Collagen Enabled Solubilized Active and Biodegradable Polymer (CESABP) Technology.

After being injected into ten sites for full face lifting (5 injection points on each side of the face), GOURI changes into a three-dimensional matrix in the skin and stimulates fibroblasts to form collagen. This results in a naturally ‘filled,’ ‘lifted’, and firmer-looking skin.

Why Choose GOURI?

The strength of GOURI as an anti-ageing treatment lies in three key points—full-face coverage, safety, and natural-looking results.

Full face coverage

Most existing fillers have microparticles. This means they are not fully liquid and, thus, will only affect a localized part and not the entire face. GOURI is fully liquid, which means it uniformly and smoothly spreads at a faster rate. In fact, it only takes ten injection sites to deliver this liquid type PCL.

Safety

If you're worried about putting things in your body, you will be glad to know that GOURI has passed FDA standards for medical use. It is non-toxic, non-mutagenic, non-pyrogenic, and totally biocompatible. It is also 100% biodegradable, so it will be broken down by your body naturally.

Natural-looking results

With fillers, there is always the danger of looking 'too done.' You won't have this issue with GOURI due to its high spreadability. Also, since GOURI works to induce neocollagenesis, it can stimulate fibroblasts and collagen production and rejuvenate the skin directly, resulting in more natural effects that last a long time.

How Does GOURI Compare to Other Treatment?

Now, GOURI isn’t the only treatment to increase collagen synthesis rate. There are other more well-known injectables in the market, such as hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers and polymer products. But ‘well-known’ doesn’t mean ‘best.’

Here is how GOURI compares with other more well-known skin injectables in the market:

1. GOURI VS Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers have microparticles that prevent them from being injected evenly into the skin, limiting their regenerative effects to localized areas only.

On the other hand, being fully liquid, GOURI naturally spreads easily and, thus, provides a more generalized effect.

2. GOURI VS Dermal Fillers

Profhilo uses high molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which mainly works to hydrate dry, aging skin. GOURI, on the other hand, improves skin elasticity, wrinkles, and fine lines and causes a natural ‘lift.’
 

3. GOURI VS Nucleofill

Nucleofill uses polynucleotides to address dehydrated, dull skin, and acne scars. On the other hand, GOURI rejuvenates and ‘fills’ up skin by restoring volume to sunken areas with collagen loss.

Are There Side Effects to GOURI? Is GOURI Safe?

Side effects of GOURI will depend on each patient’s condition.

As with most injectable treatments, most patients will notice mild swelling and tiny bumps from the injection. However, these will generally subside after 1-3 days.

How Many Sessions Do I Need to See the Results?

Most patients report significant improvements, such as more elasticity, lifting of facial laxity, and smoothening of fine lines and wrinkles, after four weeks or around 2-4 sessions, depending on their needs.
 
The treatment needs little to no downtime and results generally last between 6 to 12 months.

Who Can Undergo GOURI Treatment?

Virtually anyone from age 20 onwards can enjoy the benefits of this collagen stimulator.

That said, those who have the following issues may best benefit from the procedure:
