What are the main active ingredients?
Many popular dermal fillers are made with a substance that occurs naturally within the body and has unique moisture-retaining properties. When injected, these fillers add fullness and structural support that smooths and plumps the skin. They offer immediate results without a long-term commitment. Collagen-stimulating fillers, also known as biostimulators, don’t just add volume — they help create new collagen. These products contain ingredients that stimulate the body’s natural collagen production process to restore firm and youthful skin. The results are gradual but long-lasting.
Where can I use this treatment?
Collagen stimulators have a broad range of applications. Among other things, they can be used to define the cheekbones, sculpt the chin and jawline, enhance lip size and shape, correct fine lines and wrinkles, adding volume to gaunt areas of the face, improve the appearance of shallow scars and add subtle volume to hollow tear troughs. These injections can fill deep lines and folds, and provide significant lift and volume in areas like the cheeks, jawline, temples and mid-face.
How many session I will need?
On average a procedure takes up to 30-60 minutes. Patients typically only need one session to achieve their desired results, while others deliver the best results after a series of injection sessions carried out over regular intervals.
How soon will I see results?
One of the many reasons patients love dermal fillers is that they produce immediate results. Collagen stimulators are a gradual treatment. Although there may be slight volume improvement directly after injection, the true results will not appear for weeks. The product needs time to trigger collagen production in the body and restore the skin’s underlying structure. This process usually takes four to 10 weeks, with optimal results occurring after three months.
How long do collagen stimulators last?
The effect of your collagen stimulator, your new look may last for up to two years. The long-lasting benefits of collagen growth will continue to be seen over time. Touch-ups will be required to maintain the results indefinitely.
Is the product reversible?
Collagen-stimulating injections are not reversible. There is no injection that can easily undo the results of this treatment, making revision a more challenging process. Collagen stimulators are typically not recommended for patients who are new to facial fillers for this reason.
