Collagen Stimulators Sydney

Gradually and subtly add volume to your face
Collagen Injections Model 01-4, Muse Clinic

Volume loss is inevitable as we age but it doesn’t have to affect your appearance. As you age, the fat pads in your cheeks, temples and around your mouth start to disappear, causing your skin to sag and lose some of its structure, which can often make you look older than you are.

While dermal fillers are often the go-to treatment for this common problem, there is an alternative that’s just as effective. Collagen stimulators are injectable treatments that gradually and subtly add volume to your face by stimulating the growth of collagen.

Collagen stimulating injections paired with the right skincare products can help you maintain a more youthful appearance for many years to come.

Collagen Injections Before and After

What to Expect During The Procedure

Once we have reviewed your aesthetic goals as well as your medical history, a local anaesthetic cream will be applied to the treated area to minimise any discomfort.

The collagen stimulators will then be injected deep into the dermis where collagen has been lost. The skin will then be massaged to ensure that the collagen stimulating product distributes evenly. Once injected, the collagen stimulators will prompt the underlying tissues of the skin to produce more collagen, creating anti-aging effects over time.

Since there is minimal downtime, patients are free to return to work following their appointment. Depending on the severity of the volume loss, patients may require two to three collagen stimulator treatments to achieve their desired results.

Ideal Candidates

Following an analysis of your medical history and your skin, our experienced clinicians at MUSE Clinic will be able to determine whether you are an ideal candidate for collagen stimulating injections during a consultation in Sydney.  Unfortunately, pregnant and breastfeeding women, as well as patients with particular medical conditions, are not suitable candidates for collagen stimulators. As a guide, good candidates can include those who:

  • Are physically healthy and have a good immune system
  • Are not taking blood-thinning medications
  • Do not have any active skin infections in the treatment area
  • Have realistic expectations for what can be achieved with collagen stimulating injections, including how long the results can take and the level of change in appearance that the treatment can create

Recovery from Collagen Stimulator Treatment

You may notice some bruises or redness on the treated area after treatment but this will subside within about one week. Some patients can experience swelling, which should also fade during the first week of recovery. The skin in the treated area can look significantly fuller straight after treatment, however, this will fade after a couple of hours as it is due to the sterile water. The long-term fullness that the collagen stimulator treatments create will develop over time, as more collagen is produced.

To ensure that the best results can be seen in the treated area, you should massage the area every day for five days to help the product distribute evenly. As for caring for your skin, you can ask our clinicians for recovery advice during your consultation, so that you can minimise the chance of any skin irritation becoming a complication. Avoiding excessive heat exposure, such as saunas, will also help to reduce reddened or inflamed skin. To keep swelling down, you can gently apply cold compress such as an ice pack and try to sleep with your head elevated on an extra pillow.

Treatment Results

Patients can expect to see results directly after their collagen stimulating injections but these will slowly subside as the treatment takes effect. You will gradually see changes in your face as new collagen is formed, with the most dramatic changes being visible eight weeks after your treatment. By eight weeks, new strands of collagen will have begun to form, creating the appearance of fuller skin.

Additional treatments may be done after three to six months, however, a lower amount of product will be used the second time as the collagen production process will still be taking place after the initial treatment by this stage. Generally, top-up treatments may be needed about four times every 12 months to product the best results.

After collagen stimulator treatments, your body will naturally metabolise the product within about one year, while the results of the collagen production process can last up to two years, or even longer. As part of your treatment plan, you may be instructed to return to MUSE Clinic Sydney for follow-up appointments, so that one of our experienced injectors can assess your results and ensure that they are developing as expected.

Costs of Collagen Stimulating Injections at MUSE Clinic

The prices of collagen stimulating injections are measured by how much product will be injected into the treatment area. The amount of collagen stimulator product that you will need will depend on the current state of the treatment area and your aesthetic goals. Generally, 9ml of the collagen stimulator product is injected at a time.

For an accurate outline of your treatment costs, a consultation at MUSE Clinic Sydney will provide you with a personalised quote and treatment plan.

FAQs

What’s the difference between dermal fillers and collagen stimulators?

Dermal fillers can instantly add volume to the treated area, smooth wrinkles and create a youthful, fuller appearance, by utilising ingredients such as hyaluronic acid which binds water in the skin. Collagen stimulating injections can produce the same anti-aging results, however, dermal fillers aim to imitate the appearance of the skin that younger skin with more collagen has, while collagen stimulators are designed to prompt the body to re-create the youthful appearance naturally by building more collagen in the skin.

What’s the difference between anti-wrinkle injections and collagen stimulators?

As another anti-aging treatment method, anti-wrinkle injections can smooth out wrinkles, fade the appearance of fine lines and create more youthful-looking skin. However, anti-wrinkle injections are different from collagen stimulating injections, as they work by relaxing the underlying muscles in the treated area. Collagen stimulating injections do not produce the muscle-relaxing effect that can be created with anti-wrinkle injections.

Does treatment with collagen stimulating injections hurt?

At the beginning of your collagen stimulating injections treatment, your experienced clinician will apply a local anaesthetic to numb the treatment area. Therefore, patients should not feel any pain during collagen stimulating injections treatment.
