The main factor contributing to the appearance of signs of ageing is the loss of volume in the face and body as a result of reduced collagen production. The natural production of collagen gradually decreases over time and the skin gradually loses its elasticity and volume. Collagen is a strong complex of protein fibres that supports the skin, providing radiance and youthfulness. Injectable biostimulants come to offer the solution to this issue.
This treatment with biostimulator fillers activates the skin’s natural ability to revitalise collagen production for a more youthful appearance. Injectable biostimulators stimulate the production of collagen already present in the skin, replenishing the lost volume. Once injected, they begin to produce a controlled inflammatory response, which triggers the cells to begin producing new collagen. This newly produced collagen is then permanent.
Unlike injectable hyaluronic acid treatment, which the body absorbs, the collagen that is produced by injectable biostimulants remains. Rather than providing a temporary effect, these injections stimulate the body’s own processes for long-term replenishment of lost volume. In this way, it restores support and volume to the skin. This treatment works by stimulating the production of new collagen, helping to gradually restore volume in wrinkles and facial folds and achieving complete facial rejuvenation.
Biostimulator fillers are used to reduce facial wrinkles and folds, wrinkles around the mouth and nose, and wrinkles on the chin. At the same time, they can be successfully applied to various areas of the body, with the aim of non-surgically lifting the buttocks or increasing their volume, correcting cellulite and smoothing wrinkles on the neck or chest. However, they are not suitable for small sensitive areas such as the eyes or lips, as they are thicker in texture.
This treatment can provide a long-lasting result, without the need to repeat the treatment at regular intervals. In general, the visible results of the treatment last from 12 to 24 months, so they require less maintenance. The procedure is completely painless and is carried out with a tiny needle, while lidocaine is added to the solution and a topical numbing cream is also applied before the treatment. Mild swelling and tenderness may occur after the injections, which however subsides immediately, while the return to daily activities is possible immediately after the treatment.
