Biostimulation therapy might be the answer you’ve been searching for if you are looking for a non-invasive treatment to rejuvenate your skin. This cutting-edge technology uses dermal fillers such as Sculptra and Radiesse to stimulate your skin’s natural collagen production, resulting in a younger and more radiant appearance.
But how does it work? And which one is the best choice for you? Whether you’re struggling with fine lines, wrinkles, or dull skin, this article will inform you about biostimulation therapy. Read on and learn more about this exciting skin rejuvenation option.
What is biostimulation therapy?
If you’re new to cosmetic treatments, you may wonder about Biostimulation Therapy. In a nutshell, Biostimulation Therapy is a non-surgical procedure that uses dermal fillers to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen. Collagen is the protein that gives our skin its elasticity and youthful appearance. Our collagen production naturally decreases as we age, leading to fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.
During a Biostimulation Therapy treatment, a Misty Med Spa & Skin Rx practitioner injects a small amount of filler into the skin. This filler is made up of materials that the body can naturally absorb over time, such as poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) in the case of Sculptra or calcium hydroxylapatite in the case of Radiesse. Once injected, the filler stimulates collagen production, which helps plump up the skin, smooth out wrinkles, and restore a youthful appearance.
Unlike traditional dermal fillers, which add volume to the skin, Biostimulation Therapy creates a gradual and natural-looking improvement in the skin’s texture and tone. Results are typically seen over several months as collagen production increases and can last up to two years or more.
Sculptra is a dermal filler that is commonly used in Biostimulation Therapy. It comprises poly-L-lactic acid, a biocompatible and biodegradable substance naturally absorbed by the body over time. Sculptra is designed to gradually stimulate collagen production, resulting in a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
How is it used for Biostimulation Therapy?
During a Sculptra treatment, the practitioner injects small amounts of the filler into various areas of the face, including the cheeks, temples, and chin. The injections are typically spaced out over several sessions. Each is scheduled a few weeks apart. This gradual approach allows for natural-looking results and ensures that the skin’s collagen production is stimulated in a controlled manner.
Benefits of Sculptra
One of the critical benefits of Sculptra is its ability to stimulate collagen production, which helps to restore volume and firmness to the skin. Sculptra is particularly effective at treating volume loss in the cheeks, a common sign of aging. By restoring volume to the cheeks, Sculptra can create a more youthful and lifted appearance.
Another benefit of Sculptra is its long-lasting results. Unlike other dermal fillers that may need to be topped up every few months, the effects of Sculptra can last up to two years or more. It makes it a cost-effective and convenient option for those looking to achieve long-term skin rejuvenation.
In addition, Sculptra is a minimally invasive treatment that requires no downtime. Patients can typically resume their normal activities immediately after treatment, although some may experience minor swelling or bruising that will subside within a few days.
Radiesse is another popular dermal filler that is often used in Biostimulation Therapy. It is made up of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres, which are suspended in a gel-like solution. Like Sculptra, Radiesse is designed to stimulate collagen production in the skin, leading to a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
Radiesse is a non-surgical treatment that involves injecting the filler into the skin using a fine needle. The injections are typically administered in the cheeks, temples, chin, and other areas of the face where volume loss and wrinkles are most noticeable. The calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres in Radiesse act as a scaffold, helping to support the skin’s structure and promote collagen growth.
How is Radiesse used for Biostimulation Therapy?
Like Sculptra, Radiesse is administered several treatments over several weeks or months. This gradual approach allows for natural-looking results and ensures that collagen production is stimulated in a controlled manner. After each treatment, patients will notice a gradual improvement in the appearance of their skin, with results typically lasting up to 12-18 months.
Benefits of Radiesse
One of the critical benefits of Radiesse is its ability to provide immediate and long-term results. The calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres in Radiesse offer an instant lift and smoothing effect on the skin while stimulating collagen production for long-term improvements.
Radiesse is particularly effective at treating deep wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines. It can also add volume to the cheeks and chin, resulting in a more youthful
and lifted appearance.
Another benefit of Radiesse is its safety profile. The filler is made up of biocompatible and biodegradable materials that are naturally absorbed by the body over time. It has also been extensively studied and has an extended safety and efficacy track record.
In addition, Radiesse is a minimally invasive treatment that requires no downtime. Patients can typically resume their normal activities immediately after treatment, although some may experience minor swelling or bruising that will subside within a few days.
What to expect after Biostimulation Therapy?
After Biostimulation Therapy, patients can expect gradual improvements in their skin’s texture, tone, and firmness over several weeks or months. The results are natural-looking and long-lasting, and patients can expect fewer wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging.
The duration of results from Biostimulation Therapy varies depending on the specific treatment used and the individual patient’s skin and lifestyle factors. In general, however, patients can expect to see results that last anywhere from 1-2 years or more. With proper maintenance and follow-up treatments, the results can be even longer-lasting.
How do you maintain the results of Biostimulation Therapy?
Patients are advised to maintain their Biostimulation Therapy benefits by maintaining a healthy skincare regimen that includes daily sun protection, moisturizing, and frequent exfoliation. In addition, patients may need periodic touch-up treatments to maintain the collagen stimulation and volume achieved with the initial treatment.
