Collagen stimulating dermal fillers are a new class of dermal fillers that naturally regenerates volume and restores shape to the face that time has taken away. Collagen is one of the important support structures found naturally in our skin, helping to maintain the appropriate tightness, elasticity and suppleness. Over the course of time, our skin gradually loses its natural collagen, leading to facial laxity and the formation of wrinkles and folds.
Once injected under the skin, Collagen Stimulating Dermal Fillers have two important actions:
– They are able to immediately create lift and volume and correct wrinkles and folds
– Over time they stimulate your body to create new collagen in those areas giving you longer lasting and more natural results
Indications are similar for dermal fillers in that they can replace lost volume and hence tighten the skin and reverse wrinkles and folders. Above and beyond this they can help improve the quality, strength and elasticity of the skin through collagen stimulation and new formation of type 1 collagen which can last for years. Areas that are suitable for treatment include forehead, temples and brow area, nose, cheeks, nasolabial folds, lower face and marionette lines, chin and jawline.

Depending on which collagen stimulating product we use they can last between 1 to 4 years. However it is difficult to put a time limit on the anti-aging effect these fillers have when in comes to their ability to restore skin quality using your own body ability to form new collagen.
