Collagen stimulation vs fillers!

Collagen stimulators and boosters are huge buzzwords in the aesthetics treatments world right now – but what do this mean?

Collagen is a protein in the skin, which keeps the skin looking plump and youthful, and prevents sagginess. However, when we reach 25, we lose 1% of our collagen each year, which leads to signs of ageing.

However, there are many collagen stimulating treatments on the market, and these have natural but powerful anti-ageing effects! But when is it best to choose collagen stimulators or opt for fillers instead?

Many of our patients go for collagen stimulators when initial ageing signs begin to appear, so you need a less invasive approach to reversing these.

Collagen stimulators at Dermoperfection

If you’re at the start of your preventative journey, here’s some treatments you will LOVE at our Birmingham clinic:

SQT Bio Microneedling – Microneedling is one of the most popular treatments to boost collagen, and we’ve taken it to a whole new level with SQT Bio Microneedling! This revolutionary treatment involves the precise insertion of natural microneedles derived from freshwater sponge. This creates controlled injuries that trigger collagen production and leads to smoother and firmer skin!

Plinest Polynucleotides – NEW and already in-demand, polynucleotides are injectables derived from salmon DNA, with natural rejuvenation results. By stimulating fibroblasts, collagen and elastin production is boosted, and overall skin quality is dramatically improved. 

INTRAcel Pro – this exclusive in-clinic treatment uses RF (radiofrequency) microneedling for a radically enhanced effect in skin lifting, tightening and resurfacing! During this process, new collagen and elastin production is stimulated, as well as recharging and repairing existing damaged collagen. 

ULTRAcel Q+ – another of our Dermoperfection exclusives in the West Midlands, ULTRAcel Q+ is a world-leading HIFU treatment for lifting and tightening skin on the face and body. The high intensity ultrasound energy is focused at the right temperature to trigger the body’s healing process, thus regenerating collagen and counteracting gravity!

Profhilo – many patients choose Profhilo as their introduction to injectables; this isn’t a filler, but rather a bio-remodeller! This disperses hyaluronic acid through the skin to stimulate 4 different types of collagen over the course of 28 days after treatment, guaranteeing long-lasting, natural rejuvenation.

P-R-P for rejuvenation – dubbed “the secret to younger looking skin”, P-R-P involves drawing your own blood. Then, the P-R-P is extracted and reinjected, to stimulate the growth of collagen!

We also have Nourished Collagen available in-clinic, so you can carry on collagen boosting at-home!

Dermal fillers at Dermoperfection

Once deeper lines and wrinkles set in, you might want to switch to dermal fillers for anti-ageing!

Our clinicians perfectly place your fillers to strategically address your concerns! This includes loss of volume and to smooth out facial lines including nasiolabial folds and marionette lines. We are also experts in lip fillers, to volumise and balance the lips, and restore youthfulness to your smile.

We pride ourselves on the premium filler brands we offer, including Juvéderm, Aliaxin and HArmonyCa! These help you achieve a natural, refreshed appearance, rather than a drastic transformation. 

You may even want to combine your dermal fillers with other anti-ageing treatments, like anti-wrinkle injections or non-invasive skin tightening procedures to maximise your results. 

We can decide whether collagen stimulators or dermal fillers are the best match for your age, skin type, concerns and goals with a bespoke consultation. No two patients are the same, after all!

What is EMSCULPT Neo at Dermoperfection?

Are you ready for the Neo future of body sculpting?

Dermoperfection in Birmingham is proud to now offer EMSCULPT Neo, the latest and greatest innovation for “less fat, more muscle”!

This first-of-its-kind device combines radiofrequency (RF) and high intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy, which targets both stubborn fat and underlying muscle tissue. This delivers comprehensive body sculpting results without surgery!

Patients LOVE how this kickstarts their fitness goals and helps them boost confidence after:

  • Pregnancy
  • Weight loss
  • Injury (to rebuild strength)

And more!

And the celebrities can’t get enough of EMSCULPT Neo either. Kim Kardashian, Drew Barrymore, Megan Fox, Lisa Rinna, Olivia Culpo, Rob Gronkowski and more have all enjoyed the effects!

How does EMSCULPT Neo work?

EMSCULPT Neo works by using the HIFEM energy to stimulate muscle contractions. For example, if you’re getting treatment in the abdomen area, it will be like doing 24,000 squats or crunches in just a 30 minute session!

But that’s not all! The RF energy heats the fat under the skin, which reduces fat cells and even stimulates collagen production.

Benefits of EMSCULPT Neo

There are so many benefits to this revolutionary body toning treatment!

  • Combines two powerful therapies in one!
  • Non-invasive with minimal downtime. 
  • Quick treatment time (30 minutes), making it the perfect “lunchtime” treatment. 
  • Minimal discomfort felt during treatment. 
  • Is a clinically proven solution, shown to give on average a 30% reduction in fat, and 25% increase in muscle mass after only 4 sessions. 
  • Each session equal to about 24,000 sit-ups/squats, and a course of therapies to 12-16 weeks worth of HIIT.
  • Suitable for all genders, and patients with a BMI of up to 35.
  • Makes a great alternative to surgical options like liposuction. 
  • Long-lasting results, with patients who also follow a healthy diet and exercise routine seeing the effects for up to a year!

EMSCULPT Neo can be used across 10 different body treatment areas: these are the abdomen, buttocks, inner and outer thighs, front and back thighs, biceps, triceps and calves.

You should see the amazing results from your EMSCULPT Neo treatment after around 12 weeks. This gives your muscles time to build and the destroyed fat cells to be flushed.

You can even combine EMSCULPT Neo with another of our new treatments from BTL Aesthetics, EMFACE, to feel sculpted and toned from head to toe. Or, combine with EMSELLA for core to floor strength!

To celebrate the launch of the revolutionary EMSCULPT Neo at our Birmingham clinic, we have some exclusive course offers to maximise results! Check them out here.

EMSCULPT is the first and only body sculpting treatment, using high intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to build 25% more muscle and reduce fat by 30%. Each session is equal to 20k sit-ups!

As well as strengthening the core, you can also use EMSCULPT on the arms, buttocks and legs. Read more about EMSCULPT in Birmingham here.

What is EMSELLA?

EMSELLA also uses HIFEM technology, but this time to stimulate the pelvic floor muscles, so you can say “no” to incontinence and “hello” to better sex and confidence!

What makes EMSELLA stand out compared to other intimate health treatments is how it’s non-surgical – you don’t even need to remove clothing for your sessions, just sit on the comfortable EMSELLA chair as it works its magic!

EMSCULPT and EMSELLA create powerful results as standalone treatments, or you can combine them for a stronger core and pelvic floor…

If you’re looking for a non-invasive solution to address the core and simultaneously improve muscle strength, balance, incontinence and sexual enjoyment, this is the treatment combination you need in your life!

This is especially popular for patients following pregnancy, those who are suffering stress incontinence or diastasis recti, and to address changes associated with ageing. This can be both a preventative and corrective solution!

What is EMFACE, now at Dermoperfection?

Get ready for a revolution in facial treatments, for less wrinkles, more lift!

Dermoperfection in Birmingham is proud to now offer EMFACE, the first device of its kind utilising the patented combination of synchronised RF and HIFES technologies to firm the framework of your face!

The synchronised RF (radiofrequency) heating remodels and smooths the skin by increasing the levels of collagen and elastin fibres. HIFES (high-intensity facial electrical stimulation) tones the face-elevating muscles to restore and elevate your facial features.

Patients LOVE EMFACE as it’s a completely needle-free procedure that gives them natural but noticeable results in lifting and tightening the face, and creating a “snatched” look!

This has already become a celebrity favourite treatment too, with Kim Kardashian, Rebel Wilson, Chrissy Teigen, Alicia Silverstone and Jessica Simpson (to name a few!) all raving about EMFACE’s effects!

How does EMFACE work?

Three pads are attached to your face and a grounding pad to your back, which is attached to the EMFACE machine. Don’t worry, as this is a minimally painful procedure! 

The HIFES energy generates thousands of pulses for muscle contraction, which will just feel like someone tapping your face. In the same way EMSCULPT works on the body, EMFACE does the same on the face!

This will in turn stimulate collagen production, so you can achieve tighter skin and see youthfulness restored!

Benefits of EMFACE 

There’s so many benefits to this game-changing facial treatment!

  • Uses pioneering 2in1 technology. 
  • Non-surgical and needle-free with no downtime. 
  • Clinically proven to reduce wrinkles and visibly lift the face. 
  • Quick treatment time, making it the perfect “lunchtime” treatment.
  • Minimal discomfort felt during treatment. 
  • Suitable for all genders. 
  • Safe for all skin types and tones. 
  • A great alternative to injectables and surgical face lifting treatments. 
  • Can be used as a preventative treatment too. 
  • Results that last for up to a year!

EMFACE can be used on a range of areas across the face where you have noticed fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, stubborn fat and loss of collagen. EMFACE is especially known for reducing the submentum (double chin), and can also be used on the forehead, eyebrows, cheeks, jawline, neck and more!

You should see full results from your treatments in about 6-12 weeks following treatment, in which time your skin will be working its magic to boost collagen production!

You can even combine EMFACE with another of our new treatments from BTL Aesthetics, EMSCULPT Neo! This winning combination will have you feeling sculpted and toned from head to toe. 

To celebrate the launch of the groundbreaking EMFACE in-clinic, we have some exclusive offers for you, including EMFACE courses so you can maximise your results! Check them out here
