Known as the original liquid face-lift, Collagen Stimulators are a unique volumising collagen stimulator designed to gently lift loose tissue of the face by stimulating your bodies own collagen production.
What are Collagen Stimulators Perth made of?
Collagen Stimulators are made of Poly-L-Lactic Acid which has been used in orthopaedic medicine and in the production of sutures (stitch material).
What does treatment involve?
Collagen Stimulators are injected with along the areas of facial weakness.
Several treatments are required to create enough of your own body’s collagen to restore lost volume or improve lines and folds.
How many treatments will I need?
Everyone is different. It has been estimated that people in their 30s-40s may need 2-3 treatments; people in their 50s-60s may need 3-4 treatments.
Each treatment is roughly 6-8 weeks apart and builds on the collagen lift created by previous treatments, so giving you natural looking results.
What is the difference between Collagen Stimulators and Dermal Fillers?
Collagen Stimulators make your body produce more of its own natural collagen to lift loose tissue and shape the face. This takes time and several treatments to get the end result.
Although Dermal Fillers do stimulate collagen production, their major results are based on lifting tissue and restoring volume instantly by the precise placement of Hyaluronic Acid gels into the skin and subcutaneous areas of the face.

Collagen Stimulators are made up with pain killing lidocaine anaesthetic so is comfortable for the patient. In addition, topical anaesthetic or cold ice may be used to further numb the area ahead or during treatment.
How long do they last?
Results vary from person from person, but in recent studies, Collagen Stimulators can maintain results in the face for on average 18-24 months from the end of the treatment sessions.
