Collagen Stimulators at Skin Medical

Discover Collagen stimulating fillers at the award-winning Skin Medical clinic in Northwood, London.

What are Collagen Stimulators

The signs of facial ageing don’t necessarily mean you’re getting old. They usually begin to appear in your twenties when your levels of collagen and elastin (the proteins that give the skin its structure) start to fall. Collagen stimulating treatments, or collagen fillers, work differently from standard HA Dermal Fillers. They promote and enhance your body’s natural collagen production.

These fillers contain materials like calcium hydroxylapatite or poly-L-lactic acid, which trigger collagen and increase in collagen post injection.

These treatments, depending on the product use can be effective at resorting facial volume, firming the skin or reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

Collagen stimulators vs HA fillers

When choosing between hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers and collagen-stimulating fillers, it’s essential to understand how each works and their unique benefits.

HA fillers are gel-like substances made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in our bodies. Injected beneath the skin, HA fillers restore volume, smooth lines, and enhance facial contours by attracting and retaining moisture. The results are immediate, providing a natural, plump look that typically lasts between 6-18 months, depending on the product and treatment area. HA fillers are ideal for areas like lips, cheeks, tear troughs, and fine lines, offering minimal downtime and reversibility if needed.

In contrast, collagen-stimulating fillers are made from materials like calcium hydroxylapatite or poly-L-lactic acid, which trigger the body’s natural collagen production. These fillers don’t just fill areas but stimulate the skin to produce more collagen over time, leading to gradual volume restoration and improved skin texture. The results from collagen stimulators appear gradually over weeks to months, with effects lasting up to 2 years or more. They are excellent for deeper volume restoration, improving skin texture, and treating areas like the jawline, providing long-lasting, natural-looking results due to the body’s own collagen production.

If you seek immediate volume and hydration, HA fillers are the way to go. For long-term skin improvement and natural volume restoration, collagen stimulators are ideal.
