Injectable Tissue (Collagen) Stimulators Information

Unlike dermal fillers which are aimed at mechanically filling wrinkles, folds and skin depressions, tissue stimulators are injectable products which cause a biological reaction in the tissue, upon injection, and thus stimulate the cells to produce new collagen growth.

Product Brands

PROFHILO®

It is the first stabilised hyaluronic acid (HA) based product which is manufactured without the use of chemical cross-linking agents (BDDE) and is used for skin remodelling and treating skin laxity, not for just filling lines and wrinkles. According to the makers, it delivers dramatic improvement in tissue quality, even in challenging areas, and is complementary to other aesthetic treatments and dermal filler procedures.

Sculptra ®

Sculptra (Formerly New-Fill) is a tissue stimulator and is used more as a sculpting and volumising agent rather than just a wrinkle filler. Sculptra contains Poly-L-lactic acid.

Xela Rederm

Xela Rederm is a non-crosslinked, high molecular weight hyaluronic acid (HA) based injectable product which is combined with succinic acid. It is made in Italy by Institute Hyalual.

Background

Injectable Tissue Stimulators background information

Unlike dermal fillers which are aimed at mechanically filling wrinkles, folds and skin depressions, tissue stimulators are injectable products which cause a biological reaction in the tissue, upon injection, and thus stimulate the cells to produce new collagen growth. These products are therefore aimed at being sculpting or natural volumising agents, rather than simply skin fillers or line plumpers.
