What are Bio-stimulators and how do they work?16/04/23
These treatments are becoming more popular of late, and for good reason. I have been injecting these tissue stimulating treatments over the years but there are some fantastic recent medical studies showing how well they work. This is not a surprise to me as clinically the skin transformation has been delighting me and my patients for years.
These products when injected into the skin, stimulate a process that build tissues and repair skin. They are mostly filler like treatments. The most powerful bio-stimulating scaffold treatments are Poly L Lactic Acid (PLLA) eg Sculptra, Polycaprolactone (PCL) eg Ellansé, Calcium Hydroxylapetite (CaHA) eg Radiesse, Low Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid (LMWHA) Profhilo and Polydioxone (PDO) threads eg MINT threads. HA fillers have been proven to stimulate some bio-stimulation to some degree.
Aa an analogy, these injectable treatments act almost like a “fertiliser” to the skin’s “forest floor” where they create “stronger trees and moisture retention” such as collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Some even stimulate bone repair. They act to plump up sagging tissues and repair the skin surface. These products are mostly polymers that dissolve into carbon dioxide and water and are completely removed by the body over time. There are benefits of certain bio-stimulators over others, but this depends on an analysis of the patient ascertained by a detailed consultation. This would include a medical history, tissue examination, diagnosis and proposed treatment plan.
