Biostimulators are substances that stimulate collagen production when injected into certain layers of the skin. They can be used for long-term volume replacement and reduction of sagging.
Collagen Biostimulators Brisbane and Gold Coast
The substances most used for this purpose are:
- Calcium Hydroxyapatite
- Poly-L-Lactic Acid
- PDO Threads
The main purpose of these products is not filling but biostimulation resulting from the stimulatory action on fibroblasts, cells that produce collagen fibres. However, biostimullators made of Calcium Hydroxyapatite can also have a filling effect.

How Biostimulator Works?
More collagen in the skin means firmer, less saggy skin. And this firmness improves the overall appearance of the face in a very natural and delicate way.
Collagen degradation in the human body occurs naturally from the age of 30, with an approximate loss of 1% per year. Excessive sun exposure, intense physical exercise, pollution and smoking can accelerate this process. The main clinical signs resulting from this phenomenon are sagging, loss of volume, elasticity and natural hydration of the skin. The bone loss that occurs in the face also contributes to a more evident and pronounced appearance of ageing.
The application of biostimulators promotes the formation of new collagen, providing recovery of the firmness lost over the years and an improvement in the quality of the skin.
How many sessions you will need?
Treatment protocols suggest one to three monthly sessions, with annual maintenance. Depending on the degree of flaccidity, the number of sessions will be defined. Younger skins usually one session already bring an improvement and serve as prevention. More mature skin generally requires more sessions and combined treatments.
Where can the Biostimulator be applied
Cheeks, Jaws, Chin, Temples and Neck. PDO threads can be applied to the entire face, including the lower eyelids and barcodes.
How is the treatment
The application process is similar to any other injectable filler. After identifying the areas that need it, a series of injections will be carried out, without pain and without a needle, all done with a cannula.
What are the results of treatment with Biostimulators
They assist in the subtle recovery of facial volume, reduce wrinkles and expression marks and improve sagging in the regions where it was applied. Its effects are gradual and lasting, as the body continues to produce collagen up to 6 months after treatment. The result is rejuvenation and natural recovery of the contours of the face.
The effects are seen within 4-6 weeks after the first session, with the final result after 3 months.
The sessions must be repeated every 30-60 days, and the number of sessions varies from 1 to 3.
- Avoid blood-thinning medication such as aspirin, Ibuprofen and fish oil for at least a week prior to treatment.
What to Expect about this treatment
The treatment involves a small amount of the product administered into selected areas using either a very fine needle or cannula. The injections themselves contain a local anaesthetic in it. Once treatment is fully administered, a 5 minutes massage will be performed on the area treated.
Right after the treatment, you may expect swelling, pain, redness, and/or bruising at the treatment area, which is usually resolved within one week.
