What Are the Benefits of Biostimulators?

Biostimulators treatments are distinct from dermal fillers and neurotoxins in that their results are typically progressive. In other words, effects generally become more apparent following a series of treatments over several weeks as the body produces new collagen and elastin fibers, revitalizing skin tissue and prompting a dramatic enhancement.*

Especially when injected by a professional provider, biostimulators can produce long-lasting, natural-looking improvements. More impressive yet, they usually involve relatively quick and virtually painless treatment sessions with little to no downtime required.

Patients sometimes consider biostimulators a less invasive alternative to facelift surgery or other more intensive options. In fact, biostimulators are frequently used as part of the non-surgical liquid facelift procedure.

What Is Radiesse®?

Radiesse® is a highly sought-after injectable that contains a unique formula of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. Also used traditionally as a dermal filler, Radiesse® in its hyperdiluted form is a popular example of a biostimulator. The addition of lidocaine and saline allows Hyperdiluted Radiesse® to cover a wider range of body areas, often making it ideal for patients who want to tighten skin and replenish volume in the face, neck, décolleté, hands, knees, arms, and elsewhere.

What Is Sculptra® Aesthetic?

Sculptra® Aesthetic is distinguished by its key ingredient: poly-L-lactic acid. Like Hyperdiluted Radiesse® and other biostimulators, Sculptra® Aesthetic can gradually encourage the body to renew its collagen production. By promoting thickness and a sturdy foundation for the skin, the injectable can address wrinkles, fine lines, and other age-related phenomena. Alternatively, a Sculptra® butt lift can add modest shape and fullness to the gluteal region.
