Stimulate your body’s own collagen production, to improve facial hollowing, sculpt the mid face and revolumise without using dermal fillers.

Bio-stimulators are injectable treatments designed to spread like honey when injected into the skin. These treatments have been scientifically shown in studies to improve wound healing and the production of type I and II collagen.  Over time, our body breaks its collagen down, causing skin to lose fullness and elasticity.  Our faces experience hollowing, folds and wrinkles. Collagen biostimulators trigger the natural process of collagen production, which replenishes volume and encourages your body to rebuild its own collagen over time.  This results in smoother, firmer, tighter and younger-looking skin whilst slowing skin ageing.  Collagen and elastin play an important role in helping to support and provide structure to the uppermost layers of your skin.

Around the age of 20, our skin begins to produce 1% less collagen every year. This causes the skin to become thinner and more fragile as we get older.  With diminishing collagen levels, the skin loses its elasticity and firmness, resulting in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging.  Remember, it’s never too early to start investing in your skin’s health! Collagen Biostimulators can serve as preventative measures against premature aging or as corrective solutions to address visible signs of aging.


Sculptra is a collagen biostimulator that works from within the deeper layers of the skin to enhance collagen production and restore your skin’s health and glow. Sculptra is a composed of a bio-degradable poly-L-lactic acid(PLLA) substance which, when injected under the skin, gradually build new collagen strands to provide a fuller look.   Sculptra can be used to treat deep lines, creases, and folds to give a more youthful appearance. 

Rather than an “overnight” effect, Sculptra is intended to be performed as a series of up to four injection sessions and can achieve results lasting for up to two full years.



Radiesse is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHa). This composition resembles the composition of the naturally occurring calcium found in your teeth and bones that is suspended in a water-based gel carrier. Once Radiesse is injected into your skin, it immediately adds volume and give definition to areas of the face that have lost volume or wrinkled. Moreover, Radiesse helps stimulate the healthy production of collagen to keep the skin firm, and young.

Radiesse treatments can help provide volume to the chin, cheeks and jaw, to give a more structured effect to your face. It also decreases the appearance of deep acne scars and rejuvenate areas with loss of elasticity like the back of hands, decolletmaking prominent veins and wrinkles instantly disappear. Prior to your treatment, we will conduct a thorough consultation to determine whether you are a candidate for Radiesse.

Radiesse should not be used in areas where the skin is delicately thin such as under the eyes or on the lips.



Unlike muscle relaxing injections which reduce muscle activity, or dermal fillers which inject a gel like substance under the skin to add instant volume to an area, bioremodellers stimulate the body’s natural responses to produce more natural collagen, slowly and subtly revolumising from the inside out. They do not create facial structure, but can be combined with filler to achieve both diffuse and structured revolumisation.


The purpose of biostimulators is to When fillers are used in the appropriate amount and placed in the right location, the result is a beautiful, natural, youthful outcome. Fillers are not meant to create totally different features. In the hands of an experienced provider that has extensive knowledge of facial anatomy, the outcome simply enhances one’s own facial features.further wrinkle formation by making some facial muscles responsible for frowning or creating forehead lines inactive.

Collagen Biostimulator injections deliver visible results gradually, as the treatment stimulates your skin’s collagen production over time. Visible improvements in your skin quality usually becomes noticeable a few weeks after the treatment, with optimal results often seen within 2 months as the depleted collagen gradually rebuilds.  The results are gradual, but are often more long-lasting and provides natural-looking enhancements.

Duration of results can vary amongst the type of collagen biostimulator used. Generally, the effects can last anywhere around 2 years. Additionally, maintenance sessions are advisable to sustain the benefits of collagen biostimulators over the long-term.
