Biostimulator fillers seem to be on the rise and gaining popularity rapidly.
We are seeing many more enquiries for these fillers compared to years gone by, including from patients prepared to travel some distance who want to have the initial consultation and treatment on the same day, especially with poly-L-lactic acid. Due to Australian AHPRA regulations, we are not permitted to use drug names here.
Invariably, the answer to consultation for a new patient and treatment on the same day is a no. Why is that, especially if they are coming from some distance?
Read on to find out!
There are two main brands of biostimulator fillers on offer at Skin Essentials, brand S and brand R. The one we are discussing here, is brand S
The aging process catches up with us all eventually, as seen in the loss of skin elasticity, sagging as well as (deep) lines, wrinkles and seemingly enlarged pores. The bulk of these skin changes are due to progressive collagen loss over the years:
So in addition to bony changes with ageing, most prominent around our eyes, our jawlines and around our mouths, thinning and sagging skin due to collagen loss over time contributes in large part to the loss of youthful glow in most of us.
This is why, beyond volume replacement, rejuvenation and maintenance should rightly shift to collagen induction and maintenance of healthy, supple skin in a variety of ways.
So what is this brand of biostimulatory filler and how does it work?
1. Full Face Rejuvenation
2. No PillowFace
3. Long Lasting Results
4. Low Maintenance Treatment Option
Sold? Great, so why can’t you have it on the same day as the consultation, especially if you’re already familiar with it via Google?
1. Adequate informed consent is key
2. Biostimulator Fillers are not reversible
3. There is some aftercare needed and some side effects are reliant on aftercare
4. Results are gradual, over months
5. It needs preparation prior to injection
At Skin Essentials, our focus and priority for all treatments remain your safety and ours, so for all these reasons and many more, we’d prefer to start with all new patients with an open mind, and not rush into treatments unless they are relatively simple and straightforward on the day we first meet you.
