Biostimulatory Fillers

What Are Biostimulatory Fillers?

Biostimulatory dermal fillers are a type of injectable treatment used in cosmetic procedures to improve skin quality, elasticity, and overall appearance. Unlike traditional dermal fillers that primarily add volume by filling lines and wrinkles, biostimulatory fillers work by stimulating the body's natural collagen production to improve fine lines and wrinkles.

These fillers typically contain ingredients such as calcium hydroxylapatite (Radiesse), poly-L-lactic acid (Sculptra), or polycaprolactone (PCL). When injected into the skin, these substances trigger a response from the body, promoting collagen synthesis and restoring volume over time.

The effects of biostimulatory fillers are not immediate, unlike some traditional fillers. Instead, they gradually enhance the skin's structure and elasticity as collagen production increases. Patients may see improvements in skin texture, firmness, and overall rejuvenation.

The duration of results can vary depending on the filler used, the area treated, and individual factors. While results can last longer than traditional fillers, multiple sessions may be required to achieve optimal outcomes.

Biostimulatory Fillers vs. Dermal Fillers

Biostimulatory dermal fillers offer several benefits compared to traditional dermal fillers:

  • Collagen Stimulation: They stimulate the body's natural collagen production, enhancing skin quality over time. This leads to improved texture, elasticity, and firmness.
  • Longer Lasting Results: While the effects are not immediate, the results tend to last longer than those of traditional fillers because they work to improve the skin's structure from within.
  • Natural-Looking Results: The gradual nature of collagen production creates a more natural look as the skin rejuvenates and regains its vitality.
  • Versatility: Biostimulatory fillers can be used in various areas, including the face, hands, and other body parts, to address volume loss, wrinkles, and skin laxity.
  • Gradual Improvement: If you prefer the gradual enhancement these fillers offer, it can be less noticeable to others compared to sudden, dramatic changes.
  • Safety Profile: Biostimulatory fillers are generally considered safe when administered by a trained professional at JAG Medical Spa. However, as with any cosmetic procedure, there might be some risks and side effects
