Collagen Stimulators provide facial volume
Facial volume can be traditionally replaced with fillers. The latest trend, however, is to achieve global facial volume replacement through natural collagen stimulation with polylactic acid. Sculptra and other products, known as ‘the liquid facelift’, would substantially increase the collagen of your skin to correct the folds, wrinkles and skin laxity as a consequence of aging. The result looks and feels natural. Some Collagen Stimulators are FDA approved for treating nasolabial folds and facial wrinkles, its smoothing effect can potentially last for up to 25 months depending upon the initial severity of the facial wrinkle and fold contour deficiency.*
How It Works
As you aged, there is global volume loss of internal facial tissues. There is loss of bone density as your skull becomes smaller, loss of collagen and muscle tissues, as well as fat resorption.
As a result of the aging processes, your skin sags and becomes droopy. Folds at the cheeks, tear trough, laugh lines and corners of the mouth become more prominent. There is development and deepening of wrinkles. There is also development of pigmentation of the skin associated with aging.
Collagen Stimulators helps to replace and reinforce the skin’s collagen structure within the deep dermis. This reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the fullness of your facial contour which in term smooths out shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that has been depleted over time. The result? A refined, more youthful looking appearance over time that are potentially long lasting.
Collagen Stimulators are used to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds which are treated with the appropriate injection technique.
