With age, the process of collagen formation loses its intensity. It also reduces the amount of elastin and hyaluronic acid in the dermis. Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, which are direct substitutes for lost volume, tissue stimulators have a less pronounced voluminizing effect, but can stimulate fibroblasts to form new collagen. They are particularly suitable for tightening and lifting, without particularly adding volume to the treated area.
Different tissue stimulants differ in their active substance - calcium hydroxyapatite, polycaprolactone and others. However, the principle of operation is the same. Each product contains the active substance in the form of small particles which are arranged in a gel-like substance (carrier). The carrier is absorbed a few days after the injection. However, the active substance of the process is retained. An inflammatory process occurs. This leads to the stimulation of fibroblasts and begins intensive collagen formation. We work with Radiesse.
The effect after the application of tissue stimulants is visible immediately after the procedure, but develops over time. It is maximum by the third month, and the results are available for up to a year or more.
