Collagen Stimulators

While skin isn’t the be all and end all of ageing, it certainly represents a major component of the symptoms we can see and touch. Collagen stimulators give women and men the ability to rejuvenate their skin quickly and beautifully from the inside out. They work by jumpstarting the skin’s own natural production of collagen and elastin, the building blocks of youthful, healthy skin. This effective treatment allows you to enjoy long-term anti-ageing benefits and is fully customisable. This means you can enjoy the precise amount of rejuvenation you want, where you want. Collagen stimulators also produce very subtle, very natural results which look beautifying but never overdone.

What do collagen stimulators do?

Collagen stimulators are considered the next generation of cosmetic fillers, and you may have also heard them referred to as biostimulators. These products can help to restore volume to crepey skin and also provide a subtle lift by stimulating the underlying dermal tissues to resume collagen production. Your skin will benefit from both a restoration in volume and also improvement in skin structure and hydration.

What benefits do collagen stimulators provide?

Collagen stimulators give patients healthy, natural and subtle rejuvenation that develops slowly over time. If you’re looking for maximum results that develop discreetly, you will likely benefit from a collagen stimulator treatment. Improved volume of the skin, smoother skin and better-hydrated skin in the face, neck and hands are all potential outcomes from collagen stimulator treatments. The best part is, you can easily maintain these results with convenient follow-ups. You don’t have to have more invasive treatments to achieve your skin rejuvenation goals. Collagen stimulators are a natural, safe and effective way to regain glowing, youthful skin that never reveals you’ve had “work done.” In combination with other carefully placed injectable treatments, with beautiful skin from within, you can avoid more invasive procedures, often indefinitely.

How do collagen stimulators work?

Collagen is one of the main structural proteins of the skin and is responsible for giving the skin its firmness and smoothness, two attributes always associated with a more youthful appearance. As we age, the body’s production of collagen decreases, resulting in thinner skin and the beginning of fine lines and a loss of volume and elasticity. With collagen stimulator injections, however, the skin gradually regains its stores of collagen and elastin and, as a result, improves in its structure, becoming once again strengthened from within and turning back the clock on your complexion.

How are collagen stimulators different from other forms of skin rejuvenation treatments?

Several features distinguish collagen stimulators from other facial rejuvenation treatments and an understanding of these differences is critical to appreciating their benefits.

Collagen stimulators do not reshape the skin — they restore it

Collagen boosting treatments do not immediately restore volume to your skin, although you will see some swelling in treated areas after having your injections. This is not to be mistaken for the rejuvenation you will receive from treatment. Rather, collagen treatments slowly restore the skin’s underlying structure, a process which usually takes four to 10 weeks, and most patients see their results after three months. This gradual restructuring of the skin is both natural and subtle and leads to optimum, attractive rejuvenation.

This feature of the treatment also makes it ideal for treating larger areas of the skin that need rejuvenation but which would not be easily improved through dermal filler treatments, for example. For this reason, collagen stimulators also make exceptional treatments for other areas of the body. The backs of the hands, which also experience lipoatrophy (the natural loss of fat) can benefit from the restructuring of the lower layers of the skin which collagen stimulators offer.

It is important to note that collagen stimulators on their own cannot make up for the volume loss of bone or fat pads in the face. However, they can be performed in conjunction with volumising dermal fillers for an overall facial refresh.

Collagen Treatments Require a Skilled and Experienced Injector

Good results require an injector with advanced skill. For collagen boosters to produce beautiful results, injectables must be placed precisely in the skin’s dermis layer, where fibroblasts are found. Fibroblasts are the cells in the body’s connective tissues which generate collagen and the fibers which strengthen the skin.

It’s not enough to opt for a collagen-stimulating treatment unless you have the procedure performed by an injector with significant experience performing the treatment on a wide range of patients, ensuring a controlled delivery of the injectable and predictable, appropriate results.

A skilled injector, like Dr. Khinda, can also offer you additional, high-quality and effective cosmetic services at the time of your collagen stimulator treatment for comprehensive rejuvenation with maximum convenience.

Do I qualify for a collagen stimulator treatment?

Most men and women interested in having a collagen stimulator treatment can have the procedure, provided they have a healthy immune system and understand that results take time to develop and are subtle, a benefit of the treatment. Women must not be pregnant, nursing or trying to become pregnant at the time of treatment; those who are should plan on delaying treatment, temporarily. Also, prospective patients should not be currently taking blood-thinning medications or supplements, as the risk of bruising increases when taking these pharmaceuticals.

Which collagen stimulating products do Kaya Cosmedica offer?

Due to Australian TGA regulations, we are unable to name the brand of collagen stimulator that we use. However, our treatment of choice is composed of tiny calcium-based microspheres (similar to minerals naturally found in the body), suspended in a water-based gel. Over time, the body absorbs the gel and microspheres leaving behind only the natural collagen produced as a response to the filler. Partial volumizing results are immediately apparent and further improvement to the texture and quality of skin continues over the next six months, with results lasting up to two years.

Where can I have collagen stimulators? Collagen stimulators are best used to rejuvenate the overall face, with most improvement seen around the mouth, as well as in the mid to lower face, including the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, crêpey skin around the lower cheek, submalar hollowing and to lift areas of jowling in the lower face. It can also be used for the treatment of scars and to restore volume to the back of the hands.

What will happen during my treatment?

Local anesthetic is injected superficially into the entry point of the skin to minimize discomfort. A cannula is used to deposit the collagen stimulator under the skin in long threads. The area is then massaged to distribute the product evenly. There may be some redness, bruising and swelling post-treatment, but it will fade and disappear within the week. It is recommended that patients massage the area daily for up to five days to ensure the product remains evenly distributed.

How long will my collagen stimulator treatment last? The effect of collagen stimulators can last for up to two years, gradually producing new collagen growth and further increasing volume in the skin over time. However, results vary from individual to individual, which is why Dr. Khinda will closely monitor how you respond to your treatment and recommend a schedule of follow-ups that ensures you enjoy optimum results and look great year-round.

What are the possible side effects of treatment?

There are a few, common side effects associated with collagen stimulator treatments, most of which are minor. These symptoms include tenderness, redness, bruising and swelling where you have your injections and may last anywhere from two to five days, quickly subsiding on their own. Small lumps may also appear but will resolve spontaneously after a few weeks. If you have any concerns about your skin condition post-treatment, do not hesitate to contact Dr. Khinda to discuss your experience. The doctor wants you to be informed and comfortable throughout all aspects of your treatment.
