Collagen Stimulating Injections

Looking for a tighter, firmer, younger-looking face but not keen to go under the knife?

Collagen Stimulating injections utilise filler to give results similar to a facelift, minus the surgery!

In this rejuvenating technique, semi-permanent liquid filler is injected all over the face, deep into the tissues, where it stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, thereby building volume, sculpting, tightening and lifting. The added bonus? This product will also improve skin texture and elasticity on the surface, resulting in a radiant complexion. 

These fillers are different to gel-based fillers in that they stimulate the body’s cells to make more collagen, rather than act as a gel implant that attracts water to create the volume.

Benefits include:

  • Lasts longer than gel based fillers. Up to 3 years
  • May have a more natural look; does not give a puffy look that some other gel fillers can give
  • Can tighten the tissue
  • More suitable for patients with a high metabolism that churn through other fillers more quickly
  • Builds over a period of 6 months which may be better for clients who are not wanting anyone to know they have had treatment
  • May be more suitable for older patients that require more tightening and lifting
  • Will improve the skin texture and elasticity

How do they work?

The filler used in collagen stimulating injections is derived from fruit acid (the same material in dissolvable sutures). The filler comes in powder form and is reconstituted with water and lidocaine at least 48 hours prior to treatment to make sure the product is completely dissolved and allows for ease of injection. The added lidocaine significantly reduces the pain associated with the treatment, and topical anaesthetic cream is also applied prior to injection to ensure comfort.

Which Areas Can Be Filled?

  • Cheeks
  • Temples
  • Jawline
  • Chin
  • Buccal hollowing
  • Hands
  • Knees
  • Elbows

Will It Be Painful?

The filler contains a local anaesthetic so after the first few injections is relatively painless. Ice or topical anaesthetic can also be used if the patient wishes. A dental block can also be used when treating the lips. This makes the whole mouth completely numb.

Is It Safe?

Yes. The filler is made from a sugar that naturally occurs in the matrix of our skin. It is this sugar that gives our skin its volume. Allergic reaction is extremely rare.

What Are the Other Side Effects?

The immediate side effects of the treatment include redness, swelling and potential bruising. These are temporary and will resolve within 72 hours. Bruising may take up to 1 week or more to resolve, depending on the patient’s clotting profile and genetics.

When injected correctly into the right tissue plane, these treatments are very safe. Risks are nodules, infection, delayed skin reactions, granuloma, scarring, necrosis and – in extremely rare cases – blindness. The treatment is contraindicated in patients with auto-immune disease because of the increased risk of delayed-onset reactions and granulomas.
