Have you been looking for a way to clear fine lines and wrinkles, as well as tighten sagging skin? Collagen Stimulator Type S is something that you should definitely know about.
It has been around since 1999 and because of its long-lasting results that look completely natural. Collagen Stimulator Type S treatments have become so popular in recent years.
But let’s start with the basics ~
What actually is Collagen Stimulator Type S?
Collagen Stimulator Type S is a type of dermal filler, which adds volume back into the skin, this then gives the skin a much smoother and tighter appearance. The main ingredient in Collagen Stimulator Type S is poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA).
Never heard of this before?
It’s basically a synthetic form of natural lactic acid, which is something that your body produces whenever it has been physically exerted. Being completely synthetic, Collagen Stimulator Type S does not contain any animal products.
It helps gradually restore fullness to facial wrinkles and folds. This results in a softer and more youthful appearance. It’s a collagen stimulator that provides long-lasting, natural-looking results that can last up to two years.
What areas does Collagen Stimulator Type S work on?
Collagen Stimulator Type S is injected into the skin to diminish facial wrinkles and folds, and also used on the body for areas such as:
- Buttocks (firming, cellulite and augmentation)
- Thighs (firming and cellulite)
- Arms (reduce skin laxity and wrinkling, increase firmness and smoothness)
- Stomach (skin tightening and rejuvenation, post pregnancy skin changes)
Did you know?
It has been clinically approved to treat smile lines and other wrinkles around the nose and mouth as well as chin wrinkles.
Collagen Stimulator Type S has many uses, including:
- Treatment of chest, elbow, and knee wrinkles
- Nonsurgical butt lift or buttock augmentation
- Correction of cellulite
What does the treatment consist of?
You must be wondering what the procedure is actually like.
Your skin will be cleansed and numbed, and the collagen stimulator will be injected expertly, often using a fine cannula, across the areas that require rejuvenation.
Because of the way in which Collagen Stimulator Type S stimulates collagen production, we want even and targeted treatment to produce tight and smooth results, whether it is on your face or on the specific parts of your body.
This is also why Collagen Stimulator Type S results tend to look so natural and also different from some of the other injectable treatments out there.
Downtime, Results & What to Expect
There isn’t actually a downtime after the treatment, with most patients able to immediately resume their normal daily activities. If you do experience any bruising or redness, this is likely to be quite mild and subside within a few days.
But remember, results are gradual, and it may take a few weeks to see the full effects of Collagen Stimulator Type S.
The results last for quite some time, ranging from about 2 years to 3 years. This is a lot longer than most of the other injectable treatments out there, this is because Collagen Stimulator Type S is a collagen stimulator in addition to being a volumiser.
