What are biostimulators and why do I need them?




You may have heard about these biostimulators somewhere on social media or in passing. But what exactly are they and why the hype? Biostimulators are also known as collagen stimulators; compounds that are skilfully injected into the dermis of your skin. The primary purpose of biostimulators is to stimulate collagen and elastin production in the deeper layers of your skin, addressing concerns related to the loss of skin elasticity and fullness that often come with aging.

Unlike traditional fillers that merely add volume to the skin, biostimulators work differently by encouraging your body's natural ability to produce collagen and repair the skin's underlying structure; resulting in a more authentic and natural aesthetic solution.


What are my different biostimulator options?


Sculptra®️ crafted from poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), initiates a gradual but effective collagen production process in the deeper skin layers. While results may take a few weeks to become noticeable, the wait is certainly worth it. Typically, multiple treatment sessions may be recommended to achieve the desired outcome and the result is then maintained by yearly follow-up sessions.

Profhilo®️, on the other hand, boasts one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid (HA) available. This gel-based injection not only provides fullness but also enhances collagen and elastin production, resulting in strengthened and revitalized skin.

Last but not least, Harmonica®️ offers the combined benefits of calcium hydroxyapatite and hyaluronic acid in a single syringe. This powerful duo maximizes collagen production while providing intense hydration, leaving your skin looking immediately refreshed and glowing, with long-lasting effects from collagen stimulation.

If you're a healthy adult seeking a more natural and effective anti-aging solution, biostimulators could be the answer you are looking for. The treatment process spans over several months, but the results of biostimulators are enduring and well worth the investment.
