Collagen Stimulators

The human body naturally contains a lot of collagen, which is a type of protein found in various parts of the body like bones, muscles, skin, and tendons. However, as we grow older, the production of collagen in our body decreases, which can lead to saggy skin and the formation of wrinkles and folds on our face.

 

Collagen stimulators are an aesthetic treatment used to increase skin volume by activating the skin's ability to produce collagen, restoring the skin's structure, and renewing firmness. Collagen stimulators are used to bring volume and firmness to areas of the face that have become loose and saggy.

WHY COLLAGEN STIMULATORS?

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and can be found in our bones, muscles, skin, and tendons. As we age, the production of collagen in our bodies decreases. Over time, this leads to loose and saggy skin and the formation of facial wrinkles and folds. Collagen stimulators are an aesthetic treatment used to increase skin volume by activating the skin’s ability to produce collagen, restoring the skin’s structure, and renewing firmness.

Radiesse

Treat deep facial wrinkles, lines, or folds by improving the structure of the skin from the inside. Radiesse dermal fillers are one of the longer-lasting dermal filler injections.

 

Radiesse gives patients immediate results and increases collagen production over time. Radiesse is FDA-approved to last anywhere from 12 to 18 months, and for some patients, it lasts even longer.

Radiesse is an injectable dermal filler for facial contouring and augmentation. It immediately adds volume to safely contour, correct, and beautify facial features and it continues to work over time. It’s patented microsphere technology stimulates the body to produce new collagen for a soft, natural look that lasts. Treatment results last up to a year or more for many patients. Individual results may vary depending on age, skin type, lifestyle, and metabolic rate, so be sure to discuss your expectations with us during your complimentary consultation. 

Radiesse can be injected in the following locations:

 

  • Smile lines

  • Marionette lines

  • Corners of the mouth

  • Pre-jowl fold

  • Chin wrinkles

Sculptra

Sculptra® Aesthetic is the only FDA-approved facial injectable treatment on the market that helps boost the skin’s own natural collagen production to help treat the underlying cause of aging – the loss of collagen. In doing so, it subtly and gradually adds volume that lifts the soft tissues and plumps the skin from within.

  • Restores Facial Volume and Provides Support to the skin to improve the look of smile lines (called nasolabial folds), marionette lines, pre-auricular wrinkles (the vertical wrinkles in front of the ears), radial cheek folds (vertical wrinkles on the lower cheek) and chin wrinkles.

  • Provides Gradual and Natural-Looking Results that become visible over a period of a few months.

  • Long-Lasting:  Lasts more than two years.

Once injected Sculptra Aesthetic works deep within the skin’s surface, and is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body to help stimulate collagen production to reinforce skin’s inner structure and increase facial volume.

PDO Threads

PDO (polydioxanone) threads are a type of suture thread used in non-surgical procedures to lift and tighten sagging skin. They are inserted under the skin using a needle or a cannula and cause the skin to contract due to the body's natural inflammatory response. This process results in a tighter and more youthful appearance

PDO threads are threads that are designed to dissolve over time, typically lasting for a period of 12 to 18 months. While they are being absorbed by the body, they stimulate the production of collagen which results in an increase in volume in the treated area and yields a more youthful and revitalized appearance.

Its primary objective is to elevate the skin to a more youthful, taut position. The PDO thread lift has various applications for addressing skin concerns related to aging, including:

  • Lax or sagging skin

  • Nasolabial lines

  • Expression lines

  • Hollowness in the cheeks

  • Loose jowls
