WHY IS COLLAGEN GOOD FOR THE SKIN?

Collagen acts as a support structure for your skin. It provides volume and gives beautiful contours to your face. From about the age of 30 we start to lose collagen and many people begin to notice the first signs of aging.

HOW CAN COLLAGEN STIMULATING INJECTIONS HELP?

Collagen stimulating injections (CSIs) restart the natural process of collagen production. Replenished collagen  helps to replace volume and reduce lines, wrinkles and folds for a fresh look.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?

Firstly, you might notice that your skin looks and feels fresher as a result of increased collagen growth. As volume is slowly replaced, youthful contours can form and your facial features begin to appear healthier. Results are natural looking and you simply look healthy and refreshed.

HOW DO COLLAGEN STIMULATING INJECTIONS WORK?

The injections contain tiny collagen stimulating particles which encourage your skin to produce more collagen. More collagen leads to more volume, and plumped lines, wrinkles and folds. Because CSIs work with your own collagen growth, results are natural looking.

WHO CAN HAVE COLLAGEN STIMULATING INJECTIONS?

CSIs are an effective solution for patients with:

  • Nasolabial lines (the lines that run from your nose to the corners of your mouth)
  • Wrinkles in the cheeks and chin
  • A hollow cheek area
  • A sunken temple area
  • Prominent jowls

Consult with your Artisan Doctor to find out if CSIs are right for you.

HOW ARE COLLAGEN STIMULATING INJECTIONS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER FILLERS?

CSIs stimulate your body to replenish its own collagen that has been lost over time. On the other hand, dermal fillers are made of a smooth gel that sits under the skin to create volume.

 

Consult with your Artisan Doctor to find out which filler is right for you.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?

After treatment you may notice redness, bruising, swelling and tenderness. However these side effects are all normal and usually resolve within a few days. Consult with your Artisan Doctor for full details about the benefits and risks of treatment.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

The number of treatments needed will depend on how deep your wrinkles or hollow areas are. Most clients have more product for their first treatment and then maintain results with one treatment a year. Consult with your Artisan Doctor for your own treatment plan.

HOW LONG DO RESULTS LAST?

Results from your first treatment can last up to 2 years. Ongoing treatments will keep your results looking fresh.

WHO WILL DO MY TREATMENT?

As with any medical treatment, your results will depend on the expertise of the Doctor doing your treatment. At Artisan you will see a qualified Cosmetic Doctor who has many years of injecting experience.
