Biostimulators

Biostimulatory fillers are a type of dermal filler that stimulates the body’s natural collagen production. Biostimulatory filler injection is used to restore and lift areas of the face without undergoing a surgical procedure for a face lift.

There are now several biostimulatory fillers available and new options on the horizon. These fillers are used to address volume loss, wrinkles and sagging skin. Their added benefits on skin collagen make these some of our favourite injectable treatments.

The biostimulatory fillers available differ in how they are used, where they can be used and the onset of benefits.

These are commonly used in areas such as the cheeks, temples, jawline, and hands to restore volume and to improve overall skin texture. They work by providing a scaffolding or matrix and stimulate collagen production, which helps to improve skin elasticity and firmness over time.

When are benefits seen?

With some biostimulatory fillers visible treatment effects take time, although some benefits may be seen soon after treatment. Full benefits will usually take 6 or more months. This can be desirable for people who want a treatment that has gradual onset. This product relies on remodelling of skin and its support tissues. Biostimulatory fillers rely on a person’s production of new collagen and generally work better in younger individuals with reduced benefits seen in older age and can be affected by a person’s general health. 

Our other key biostimulatory filler has a more immediate dermal filling effect, over time however the product is slowly removed by the body and replaced by new collagen which sees skin benefits evolve over this time.

How many treatments are needed and what is the duration of benefits and how often should treatment be repeated?

By stimulating collagen synthesis, these fillers can provide long-lasting results and improve the overall appearance of the treated areas. Benefits reduce over time and maintenance treatments are often utilized to maintain biostimulatory skin benefits. 

Often a series of treatments is initially utilized to achieve the desired outcome

The recommended frequency of such top up treatments can vary from 6 to 24 months.

Preparation

At KDAA we aim to tailor your treatments and care. Consultation is key to your thorough assessment to determine your individual needs along with a discussion of your treatment options and their risk. Your treatment will not be able to be done if there is active skin disease in the treatment area or a skin infection. It is also important to inform your injector about any treatments you have had in the area you want treated. Prior to your treatment you can request a topical anaesthetic cream to assist reduce pain due to injection. You will also be asked about your medical history including any medications that might increase risk including risk of bruising. 

Downtime and Risks

Most people can resume normal activities a few hours or the following day after the procedure.

The downtime and risks associated with these injections vary from person to person and the product used.

Biostimulatory fillers are administered by injection. This carries the risk of swelling, redness, bruising, or tenderness at the injection sites which normally settle over a few days

It’s important to discuss any concerns or medical history with our dermatologists and dermatology nurses. To minimize risks and ensure optimal results, careful assessment and treatment planning along with the correct product preparation and injection by experienced injectors are key. We will provide you with detailed information about potential risks and your specific situation. 

What other treatments work well in combination?

Biostimulatory filler injections are a good stand-alone treatment. Combination with anti-wrinkle injection may be considered.

Laser, light or energy-based treatments are not generally provided on the same day to reduce treatment risks or filler damage. There are some good sequential combination treatment programs however that you can consider  following your biostimulatory filler injection such as the Ultraformer MPT.
