Unfortunately, we all age, and with that comes a loss of collagen, resulting in thinner elastic fibres and sagging skin.
Bio-stimulator injections are becoming increasingly popular at the Glebe Cosmetic Clinic. The injections work to tighten the skin by stimulating collagen production and restoring facial volume, resulting in a more youthful appearance and radiant skin.
Areas that will benefit from Bio-Stimulators
- Lower cheeks
- Acne scars
- Hip dip (nonsurgical BBL)
How it works:
Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) is a collagen stimulator that works within the deep dermis to revitalise collagen production and your skin’s volume and structure.
The full results of the treatment do take time as it is designed for your body to start re-producing more collagen. You will start to notice it working in around 6 – 12 weeks.
At 4 – 6 weeks after the initial injection, we proceed with a second booster shot which will enhance the first session, and most patients see full results 2 -3 months following their second round.
Once your results are showing they will continue for up to 2.5 years, but some patients may need one maintenance dose during that time.
Bio-stimulator injections are often combined with other anti-ageing treatments to achieve a person’s overall goal and appearance-related concerns.
Apply an ice pack at short intervals, for up to 24 hours. This will help reduce any swelling.
Avoid makeup, retinoid creams, and heavy exercise for the first 24 hours. Alcohol dilates blood vessels, so it’s best to avoid it for as long as possible.
Until the swelling has subsided, avoid excessive sun, UV sunlamps and hot temperatures.
Each day for the first 5 days, massage the area for 5 minutes, 5 times per day.
