What are Collagen Biostimulators?

Collagen biostimulators are substances applied to the face to stimulate the natural and biological production of collagen. Collagen is one of the most common proteins in the human body, and its function is to keep cells together, firm, and elastic. However, after the age of 30, the production of this protein decreases, which is part of the body's natural processes.

Therefore, the application of collagen stimulating injections helps to promote the formation of new proteins, resulting in an improvement in the appearance of the face, minimising the signs of ageing, reducing sagging, and providing more uniform skin. In addition, it can be used in other regions of the body such as the buttocks and abdomen, or any area of the body where there is sagging.

How are Collagen Biostimulators Applied?

Collagen biostimulators are applied to the skin in a minimally invasive way, at specific points on the face. Collagen biostimulators are composed of substances that are compatible with our bodies and do not pose any health risks, which contributes to a progressive and rejuvenating result for the body.

The substances used in this aesthetic procedure are not intended to fill, but to biostimulate. After application, the skin has a more natural rejuvenating appearance. This action will take place after stimulation of fibroblasts, the cells that produce collagen fibres.

What Are Examples of Biostimulators?

  • Radiesse

Radiesse filler (Calcium Hydroxyapatite) is a biostimulatory aesthetic injectable procedure indicated for people who are unhappy with the loss of natural skin support and would like to resort to aesthetic treatments that allow them to recover their self-esteem.

In this way, it can be used for various treatments, such as:

  • Cheeks
  • Jawline angle
  • Chin correction
  • Nasolabial folds

The main function of Radiesse dermal filler is to stimulate collagen, restore facial contour, and add volume.

Due to the fact that we use a substance that is absorbable by the body, calcium hydroxyapatite, the results do not last forever. Generally, Radiesse injections results typically last up to 12 months

Sculptra is a cosmetic procedure that uses FDA-approved poly-L-lactic acid to reduce deep wrinkles in your skin. It stimulates new collagen production, giving you a very natural and youthful effect.

Unlike Radiesse, Sculptra injections focus on stimulating collagen production without adding immediate volume to the area. However, it effectively reduces signs of ageing by promoting collagen growth, restoring radiance to the face. Sculptra can also be used on areas like the arms, abdomen, thighs, and buttocks.

Both Radiesse and Sculptra filler are among the longest-lasting biostimulators available today. Sculptra boasts longer-lasting results, sustainable for up to 24 months. Radiesse results typically last up to 12 months. Additionally, the effects of both biostimulators can be enhanced periodically through other treatments like microfocused ultrasound (ultraformer)

  • PDO Threads

PDO threads are a minimally invasive treatment that stimulates collagen production and is indicated for: Under-eye filler, crow's feet and Skin tightening. PDO threads are often used as a preparatory step for other aesthetic procedures, such as under-eye fillers, to enhance the results and prolong their duration.

What Are the Skin Results with Collagen Production Stimulation Treatment?

Collagen stimulating treatments are a popular choice for patients seeking a natural and gradual rejuvenation effect. By stimulating the production of elastin and collagen fibres, these substances help to restore skin support and create a more youthful appearance.

Collagen biostimulators deliver gradual and long-lasting results due to their ability to stimulate the body's natural collagen production. This process continues for up to six months after the treatment, leading to visible improvements within four to six weeks following the initial session. 

The number of sessions required will be determined by a MovMore qualified professional based on the patient's individual needs and goals. The specialist will assess the patient's skin condition and objectives to determine the appropriate number and quantity of applications.
