Are you new to biostimulator injections?
Biostimulator injections, also known as collagen stimulators or biostimulatory fillers, are an injectable cosmetic treatment that help:
- Restore volume in skin
- Stimulate collagen production
- Improve the overall texture and appearance of the skin
Unlike traditional dermal fillers that primarily provide immediate volume by filling in wrinkles and lines, biostimulators work by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production process.
These fillers contain biocompatible substances which are gradually absorbed by the body while triggering collagen synthesis.
As the collagen rebuilds, it helps to enhance skin elasticity, improve texture, reduce fine lines, and restore lost volume over time.
Biostimulator dermal fillers offer a longer-lasting solution, as their effects can continue to improve for several months after treatment.
Biostimulator injections - FAQs
How long does one treatment session take?
Biostimulator treatments typically take around 30 minutes, depending on the areas treated and your needs.
Are biostimulator injections painful?
Using an ultrafine needle, small amounts of the biostimulator are injected into the skin, so typically, any discomfort is minimal and very short-lived.
How many sessions / treatments are needed?
Often, only one session is needed to promote collagen production that typically lasts for about two years, making biostimulator injections a cost-effective solution for many people. The number of sessions needed, however, is determined by your skin, your circumstances and your goals.
Is there anything I should prepare before getting the treatment?
It’s recommended to avoid taking blood-thinning medications, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, for at least several days prior to your biostimulator injection. Avoiding alcohol, smoking and extreme sun exposure in the days before your treatment is also important.
On the day of your session, your specialist may advise you to avoid wearing makeup and taking some other medication, depending on your circumstances.
Typically, most patients won’t need to prepare much before their sessions, other than that mentioned above.
For preparation specific to your circumstances and needs, please get in contact with us.
Are biostimulator dermal fillers safe?
When administered by a qualified medical professional, biostimulator dermal fillers are considered safe.
However, as with any cosmetic procedure, there can be potential risks and side effects, including swelling, bruising, redness, or lumps at the injection site.
It’s important that a trained specialist determines the suitability and safety of these fillers for your specific needs.
How long until the results are visible?
Biostimulator dermal fillers start working from the moment they are injected, stimulating collagen growth over the course of several months, so as results become noticeably more visible across that period of time.
How long do the results of biostimulator dermal fillers last?
Generally, the effects of biostimulator injections can last up to two years.
The longevity is influenced by factors such as the patient’s age, metabolism, lifestyle, and the specific filler product used.
Like in many situations, the more you care for your health and know the risks of your particular skin, the longer the results will last and the better they’ll be.
What areas can be treated with biostimulator injections?
Biostimulator injections can be used to treat areas of the face, such as the cheeks, temples and jawline.
They are also used for non-facial rejuvenation, including hand rejuvenation.
In particular these biostimulator dermal fillers are useful in addressing volume loss and improving skin quality.
