What is a biostimulator?
Biostimulators are an FDA and Health Canada Authorized dermal filler that provides long lasting results of up to two years, and is a great alternative to conventional hyaluronic acid fillers. Made from poly-L-lactic acid, this is an advanced collagen bio-stimulator that is used to improve facial volume and treat lipoatrophy, which is the facial wasting, or loss of facial fat. The advantage of using biostimulators to treat facial volume loss over hyaluronic based fillers is that it triggers a controlled inflammatory response in the skin to stimulate the production of collagen. After the age of 18, we lose about 1% of our collagen annually, and as collagen is the building block to smooth and healthy skin, with the help of biostimulators you can restore collagen loss.
How does Sculptra works?
Biostimulators works with your body to stimulate collagen production lost to aging, rebuilding and reinforcing your skin’s structural foundation. Through a series of treatments, typically about three sessions over a few months, it restores the support and volume of youthful looking skin, providing results that can last up to two years.
Biostimulators consist of Poly- L-Lactic Acid, which is a synthetic polymer that has been used in human body since 1960 and as medical suture material from 1970.
