Give your skin a youthful boost
Injecting compounds known as biostimulators into the deepest layer of the skin can encourage the growth of new tissue. This differs from the injection of dermal fillers such as Juverderm®, which merely increases the volume of the skin. Biostimulator fillers encourage the body to generate its own collagen and elastin, which are responsible for restoring volume to treated areas and reducing the look of wrinkles.
The two most commonly used biostimulators are calcium hydroxylapatite (marketed as Radiesse®) and poly-L-lactic acid (Sculptra®). Instead of just injecting materials into the dermis (the lower layer of the skin) to volumize, Radiesse or Sculptra can be used to promote the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. These fillers act as a kind of scaffolding for these substances, resulting in an increase in volume in the treatment area, and aiding in the reduction of wrinkles and lines.
Since biostimulators encourage collagen and elastin, the benefits include a smoother, more natural outcome. When administered by a skilled biostimulator injector, both can be used to assure the individual will be able to avoid an “overdone or over-stuffed” appearance.
Sculptra is another type of biostimulator injection that works to gradually restore the collagen that has been lost. It is made with poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) which helps to improve the foundation of the skin and reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. Instead of having an instantaneous impact, Sculptra is typically administered in sets of four injections and the effects can last up to two years.
Radiesse is a biostimulator injectable filler made up of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA). When injected into the skin, the CaHA particles integrate and form a kind of scaffolding, prompting the body to produce more collagen and elastin. The result is a smoother appearance, as well as a stronger and more natural-looking skin structure. The effects of Radiesse typically last for around 15 months.
NEW – Utilizing Radiesse in a new and highly successful manner is known as the Hyperdilute Radiesse technique. When thinned and injected just beneath the skin, Radiesse serves as a stimulant of collagen. The Hyperdilute Radiesse technique requires combining the filler with saline, lidocaine, reducing its viscosity and increasing the amount of the product. The thinned Radiesse is then administered into the desired area with a thin cannula. This particular treatment is a suitable alternative to surgical options such as a facelift or neck and décolleté lift.
Non-Filler Biostimulator Treatments
Microneedling with PRP
Collagen Induction Therapy with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), also known as MicroPen or MicroNeedling, is a cosmetic technique that can provide several anti-aging advantages. For the procedure, a small sample of blood is taken from the arm, with the plasma and platelets being isolated from the red blood cells. The PRP is then injected into the skin. When the PRP is absorbed, a healing process is started that stimulates the creation of new collagen.
PDO and PGA/PLLA THREADS
Threads are made with special suture material known to trigger collagen production in the skin as it’s absorbed into the body. These threads are inserted under the skin using a cannula to gently pull underlying tissues to tighten and lift areas of concern. Over time, the thread will dissolve, leaving you with your own personally-produced collagen for a wonderfully natural-looking improvement.
How do I know if I'm a candidate?
Healthy adults who are bothered by loose skin and loss of facial fullness can often benefit from biostimulators. Benefits can truly be amazing with biostimulators, and they are recommended for candidates who are seeking a more youthful natural appearance and individuals who are prepared to have biannual or annual touch follow-up treatments.
