COLLAGEN REMODELLING DERMAL FILLERS

What happens to collagen as we age?

Ageing skin can lose its structural proteins (collagen and elastin), which causes it to begin to sag and loose it’s elasticity, therefore contributing to a tired and aged look.

How do collagen remodelling dermal fillers work?

Collagen remodelling or biostimulators are different to other dermal fillers because of its unique properties, it not only corrects wrinkles and folds but also stimulates your own collagen production to really treat the underlying causes of facial ageing. The effects are gradual and longer-lasting giving you a natural youthful appearance

How long does collagen remodelling last?

You will get natural looking and immediate results, that last from 1 to 4 years depending on which Biostimulator option Nurse Julie recommends to you. It is important to know that Biostimulators are a bit more expensive, but in the long term, you will enjoy cost savings due to its longevity.

Which areas of the body can collagen remodelling be used ?

Collagen remodelling can be used in the backs of hands to restore volume loss and give a more youthful appearance and the décolletage (upper chest) to restore skin thickness and reduce lines and wrinkles often associated with ageing and excessive sun exposure.

Are there any serious risks?

Collagen remodelling is very safe, and most side effects are injection related – mild swelling, bruising and soreness. These are temporary and will resolve with no issues.

Is the treatment painful?

Biostimulators are mixed with local anaesthetic (lidocaine 2%) before injecting into the required area to be treated. When combined with topical anaesthetic cream on the skin the procedure is relatively pain free and usually extremely well tolerated by patients

Is there any downtime following collagen remodelling treatment?

As with any injection treatment, there may be side effects such as localised redness, swelling and bruising. There may be slight swelling and mild discomfort in the treated areas for up to 24 hours following Biostimulator treatment. Swelling that lasts longer than 1 to 2 days is uncommon (1 episode per 1000 patients) but always fully resolves with a week in most cases. Bruising is possible but is not common. It usually resolves within a week and easily covered by makeup in most cases.

When can I return to work?

Most patients return to work or normal activities within a day after treatment.
