Along with the bone, muscle and fat changes that take place as we age, collagen loss begins to occur. Collagen provides vital support and structure to the skin. As it diminishes, we start to see the formation of lines and wrinkles, and loss of overall volume.
How Collagen Stimulant Works
This product helps revitalise your natural collagen production. The product contains a substance called PLLA (poly-L-lactic acid). The collagen stimulant is injected deep under your skin, where the PLLA works with your body to stimulate and revitalise natural collagen production. As collagen production is stimulated, the skin starts to regain its structure and volume, meaning wrinkles and defects are gradually corrected.

Frequently Asked Questions
When it comes to your collagen boost treatment, results are gradual. This means that changes are subtle and usually aren’t apparent immediately after the first treatment. Improvements may last for up to 25 months after the initial treatment.
Typically, two or three treatments every four to six weeks is sufficient. Results develop gradually as collagen production is stimulated and skin appearance improves.
Serious side effects are rare. The most common side effects after initial treatment include injection site swelling, tenderness, redness, pain, bruising, bleeding, itching and lumps.
Other side effects may include small lumps under the skin, which are sometimes noticeable when pressing on the treated area. Larger lumps, some with delayed onset and with or without inflammation or skin discoloration, have also been occasionally reported. If you have any concerns about the safety of collagen stimulant or if you experience any side effects, please talk to your cosmetic practitioner.
