As we age, our skin shows the first and most obvious signs that time and life left their traces on us. Collagen stimulators procedure offered by FACE Cosmedical rejuvenates the skin from inside out, pretty fast, reversing the worst damage of age. Collagen stimulators work by boosting the production of skin’s natural collagen and elastin, the building blocks of the natural, youthful looking skin. The effective treatment with collagen stimulators gives you a chance to enjoy long-term effects of their anti-ageing action. The procedure is fully customized for each patient and each person enjoys the exact amount of rejuvenation he or she desires and exactly where they want it. Collagen stimulators produce subtle, very natural results, beautiful but not overdone.
WHAT EXACTLY COLLAGEN STIMULATORS DO?
Collagen stimulators, also called biostimulators, are considered the next generation of cosmetic fillers. They restore volume to dry, crepe paper-looking skin and provide a gentle lift by stimulating the underlying tissue to entice it to produce collagen. The skin benefits from this procedure by having its volume restored and by the improvement in hydration and skin texture.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF COLLAGEN STIMULATORS?
Collagen stimulators give patient’s skin natural and subtle rejuvenation that develops gradually over time. If you want maximum results that develop naturally and discreetly, collagen stimulators therapy is probably your best option. You can expect improved skin volume, smoother skin texture and better hydrated skin on the face, neck and hands. One of the best features of the collagen stimulators therapy is the fact that the results can be easily maintained with regular follow-ups. There is no need for more invasive treatments to make your skin look visibly younger.
Collagen stimulators are natural, safe and very effective therapy that results in healthy, young looking, glowing skin which does not scream ‘I had work done.” Combined with other appropriate treatments, you will have skin that is beautiful from inside out for as long as you want, without having to resort to painful, invasive procedures.
HOW COLLAGEN STIMULATORS WORK?
Collagen is one of the main skin structural proteins. It is responsible for making the skin firm and smooth, two features we associate with looking young. As we age, the body produces less collagen and as the result our skin looks thinner, the fine lines start to appear and skin starts losing its elasticity and volume. The injection of collagen stimulators gives the skin additional store of collagen and the skin gradually starts regaining its structure, as it is strengthened from inside out. It literally turns the clock back on your appearance.
There is a significant difference between collagen stimulators and other skin rejuvenation treatments. This difference is critical for truly appreciating the benefits of this treatment.
INSTEAD OF RESHAPING THE SKIN, COLLAGEN STIMULATORS RESTORE IT
Collagen stimulating treatment does not instantly restore your skin’s volume, although there will be certain amount of swelling in the treated areas immediately after the treatment. This swelling is not the rejuvenation you are expecting but the side effects of the procedure. Collagen treatment works slowly and gradually restores skin’s underlying structure. This process normally takes four to ten weeks, but most patients see visible results after three months. This gradual rejuvenation and skin restructuring is so natural and subtle that it leads to the patient looking and feeling rejuvenated as if it happened naturally, without any procedure.
This gradual improvement is the feature of this procedure that allows it to be used for the treatment of larger areas of the skin that requires rejuvenation but could not be treated using other procedure such as dermal fillers. This feature also makes collagen stimulators ideal for treating other areas of the body, such as the backs of the hands. This area also experiences the natural loss of fat or lipoatrophy and can benefit from the restructuring of the underlying layer of the skin by using collagen stimulators.
It is important to understand that collagen stimulators cannot make up for the loss of volume of bones or fat pads on the face. But, they can be very effective if performed together with volumizing dermal fillers.
COLLAGEN STIMULATING THERAPY HAS TO BE PERFORMED BY A SKILLED AND EXPERIENCED PROFESSIONAL
To ensure optimal results, collagen stimulators have to be injected only by a professional with advanced skill and extensive experience with this treatment. Collagen boosters can produce beautiful results only if they are injected precisely in the layer of the skin where fibroblasts are found. Fibroblasts are cells in the body’s connective tissues responsible for producing collagen and the fibers that improve skin’s strength. Having an experienced professional performing this procedure is a crucial part of achieving expected results.
Our injector Rebecca at FACE Cosmedical offers their patients other high quality effective cosmetic procedure that can be performed at the same time as the treatment with collagen stimulators. This combination offers significant rejuvenation within the convenient time frame.
WHO QUALIFIES FOR A COLLAGEN STIMULATOR TREATMENT?
The collagen stimulator treatment is suitable for most men and women, as long as they are physically healthy, with healthy immune system and reasonable expectations. It means that they have to understand that the results take time to show and that they are subtle. Pregnant and nursing women and those trying to become pregnant should postpone the treatment. People who are taking blood-thinning medication or supplements are not good candidates as they risk increased bruising after the treatment due to these medications.
WHICH COLLAGEN STIMULATING PRODUCTS ARE OFFERED BY FACE Cosmedical?
Australian TGA regulations prevent FACE Cosmedical from naming the brand of collagen stimulator used in the procedure. It is enough to know that the product is composed of small calcium-based microspheres, similar to those naturally occurring in the body, suspended in a water-based gel. The body gradually absorbs the gel and microspheres, leaving behind only collagen naturally produced as a response to the stimulator. Partial volumizing is evident immediately after the procedure and the patient can expect continued further improvements in the skin’s texture and quality. This improvement will continue for the next six months and the results will last for up to two years.
WHERE CAN I HAVE COLLAGEN STIMULATORS INJECTED?
Collagen stimulators show best results when injected anywhere on the face. The most improvements show around the mouth, in the middle and lower face including nasolabial folds, marionette lines, crepe paper-looking skin around the lower cheek, submalar hollowing and the jowling in the lower face. Collagen stimulators can also be used to treat scars and to restore volume to the back of the hands.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE PROCEDURE?
The procedure starts by injecting local anesthetic into the entry point of the skin, to minimize the discomfort. After that collagen stimulator is injected under the skin in long threads using a cannula. The area is massaged in order to facilitate the distribution of the product. The skin might show some redness, bruising and swelling after the procedure. This will disappear within a week. A patient is advised to continue massaging the treated area every day the first five days to ensure even distribution of the product.
HOW LONG WILL THE EFFECTS OF COLLAGEN STIMULATOR TREATMENT LAST?
The effects of the procedure can last for up to two years, as the skin continues slowly and gradually producing more collagen and increasing the skin volume. Of course, every person is different and our injector Rebecca at FACE Cosmedical will continue to monitor each patient’s response to the treatment. She will recommend a schedule of follow-ups in order to ensure long-term optimal rejuvenation and expected look.
WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS OF THE COLLAGEN STIMULATORS TREATMENT?
There are a few commonly expected side effects produced by the collagen stimulator treatment. Most of them are minor. They include redness, tenderness, bruising and swelling at the site of the injections. They might last from two to five days and will quickly subside on their own. Small lumps also may appear on the site of the injections, but will disappear on their own in a few weeks. If you experience any of these side effects and are concerned about them, do not hesitate to contact FACE Cosmedical and talk to Rebecca. It is important to us that you feel comfortable at every stage of your procedure.
