WHAT IS E.P.T.Q.?
E.p.t.q. is a product range of 3 different dermal fillers that comes with and without lidocaine. The 3 dermal fillers are developed to meet the increased demands to achieve a more youthful appearance. The product range mostly addresses women but works just as well on men. All 3 dermal fillers are based on high-purity cross-linked hyaluronic acid with a minimum of 24mg/ml. HA.
E.p.t.q. is short for epitique and is constructed by the words “Exquisite” and “Technique”. E.p.t.q is manufactured by Jetema.
Jetema is a Korean research-oriented bio-aesthetic pharmaceutical company. E.p.t.q. launched in 2017 in Korea. In 2020 Jetema obtained the CE approval for e.p.t.q.
E.p.t.q. S 100:
E.p.t.q. S 100 is a thin filler but still with high viscoelasticity that is easy to work with. E.p.t.q. should be injected into the superficial part of the dermis. Because the gel is thin, it works well to treat small and fine lines. E.p.t.q. S 100 can treat crow’s feet, temples, and tear trough around the eye area and small fine lines around the mouth.
E.p.t.q. S 100 comes with and without lidocaine so the injector can choose the best pain reliever for the patients.
E.p.t.q. S 300:
E.p.t.q. S 300 is made for creating more volume and can fill deep to medium wrinkles. E.p.t.q. S 300 should be injected in the middle to deep layers of the dermis. The filler has high viscoelasticity but is still very easy to work with when injected. The high viscoelasticity creates volume to the injected area and can add volume to the chin- and jawline profile. It is often used to enhance lip lines and add more volume to the lips. The filler is great for filling deep to medium wrinkles like nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
E.p.t.q. S 300 comes with and without lidocaine so the injector can choose the best pain reliever for the patients.
E.p.t.q. S 500:

HOW LONG DOES E.P.T.Q. LAST?
E.p.t.q. fillers last from 12-24 months. E.p.t.q. contains cross-linked hyaluronic acid that ensures the hyaluronic acid has a long life in the skin. Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in the human body. The rate of degradation of naturally produced hyaluronic acid in the skin is about 1 day. To prolong this process and make the commercially hyaluronic acid last longer the dermal fillers are chemically modified.
IS E.P.T.Q. SAFE?
E.p.t.q. is a very safe dermal filler. During the production, all ingredients have undergone a very precise cleaning process where the hyaluronic acid is highly purified. This ensures keeping the endotoxin below 0,1EU/ml. minimizing side effects like swollen skin after a procedure. E.p.t.q. is based on the same pH as the body.
Besides that, residual BDDE is kept under <2 parts per million (ppm) in the dermal fillers. This level is considered non-toxic for the body.
When hyaluronic acid is cross-linked 1,4-butanediol diglycidyl ether (BDDE) is used as a crosslinking agent. During the process, there will always be residual or unreached BDDE left in the product.
E.p.t.q. uses a very precise cleaning process that keeps the levels of residual BDDE below <2 parts per million (ppm), making e.p.t.q. a very safe and non-toxic filler.
E.p.t.q. is CE certified and approved by the FDA.
