What are Biostimulator Injections
Biostimulator injections have emerged as a game-changer for skin tightening, mainly when applied to body areas. As specialists in this area, our Dr AJ at Pearl has developed innovative techniques that take advantage of your body’s collagen stimulation mechanism for lasting results.
Although they can be applied to the face, the emergence of biostimulator injections on the body provides options for previously difficult-to-treat body skin laxity. So how do collagen-stimulating injections work for achieving outcomes?
We will run through what to expect during treatment with biostimulator injections, what side effects you might expect, the timeline for results, and how many treatments you require with collagen-stimulating injections. So you can be equipped with knowledge about Biostimulator injections to make well-informed decisions regarding whether this is the right treatment for you.
Biostimulator Injection Treatment
If you want to improve your skin’s appearance and achieve a more youthful look, biostimulator injection treatments might be the perfect solution for you.
There are two types of biostimulator injections.
- The first, also referred to as a powder filler, only acts via collagen stimulation.
- The second is a combined filler and biostimulator, which we will call a biostimulator filler.
Both of these collagen-stimulating injectors can be used on the face. However, the biostimulator filler comes into its own as it can be used for volumising and sculpting cheeks, jawline and chin.
When used on the body, the biostimulator filler has the advantage of providing filling and collagen stimulation. The primary mechanism behind stimulating injections is their ability to stimulate collagen production in the skin.
- Collagen stimulation helps reduce skin sagging, lines, and wrinkles or adds volume to targeted areas.
- Biostimulator injections are versatile and can address multiple aesthetic concerns at once.
Biostimulator injection treatments effectively reduce the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks by stimulating collagen production.
Collagen Biostimulators for Cellulite Treatment
Cellulite results from changes to all skin layers on the thighs, buttocks, abdomen and sometimes upper arms. It is a combination of the formation of tight fibrous bands that contract and pull the skin down into dimples, thinning of the skin, oedema and herniation of nodules of fat.
Subcision is Combined with Biostimulator Injections.
For effective cellulite treatment, the constricting fibrous bands are subsidised, allowing the release of the dimple, combined with injection of the collagen biostimulators, which help repair and thicken the skin, tightening the skin and fill in areas to create a smooth surface on the skin.
Bisostimulator Skin Tightening
Loose, lax and saggy skin develops with time and environmental damage; the open, flexible skin of upper arms and the saggy skin of upper thighs and abdomen can all be addressed with biostimulator skin tightening.
Biostimulator Skin Tightening can be Combined with Hifu.
Often it is best to combine biostimulator filler with HIFU. This is because HIFU contracts and stimulates deeper collagen fibres, complementing the collagen stimulation of the biostimulator filler.
Results Timeline & Follow-up Treatments
If you’re considering biostimulator injection treatments, it’s essential to understand the timeline for results and any necessary follow-up appointments. When using combined biostimulator/filler products, you can expect to see immediate effects. However, the outcome takes about eight weeks to achieve, at which point our cosmetic doctors will see you back for a review.
- Immediate effects are seen with biostimulator filler: You can enjoy some visible improvements right after treatment.
- The process of increased collagen growth occurs over 6 -12 weeks. After that, you will slowly notice a fresher look as your collagen levels increase.
- Review results after eight weeks: Schedule a follow-up appointment to assess progress and determine if additional treatments are needed.
In most cases, people require a second treatment to attain their desired appearance and ensure long-lasting benefits from the procedure. Biostimulator fillers are an excellent option for collagen-stimulating injections with some immediate results.
Risks & Side Effects of Biostimulator Injections
Biostimulator injections, like any medical treatment, come with side effects. Some common side effects include bruising and swelling at the injection sites.
In rare cases, the formation of nodules under the skin surface or infection (extremely rare). Although extremely unlikely, necrosis is also possible but is an infrequent occurrence.
- Bruising and swelling at injection sites (common)
- Formation of nodules under the skin surface (rare)
- Infection (sporadic)
- Necrosis or blindness (infrequent occurrences)
Before receiving biostimulator injections, knowing the potential risks and side effects is essential to make an educated decision.
Addressing Various Aesthetic Issues With Biostimulators
Biostimulator injections can effectively address a wide range of aesthetic concerns. Some popular applications include:
- Skin tightening on abdomen, arms, and thighs
- Cellulite treatment on thighs, buttocks
Biostimulator injections are a popular treatment for addressing aesthetic issues such as volume loss, contouring, and skin tightening. These injectables stimulate collagen production and can be used on the face and body. While there may be some common side effects like bruising and swelling, rare complications are possible.
Immediate results can often be seen with combined products, but reviewing your final results after eight weeks is essential. Pain management during the procedure is also available.
