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!
