Restore facial volume from within with the illumia Collagen-Stimulator. This treatment boosts collagen production gradually from within the deep dermis to help you achieve a youthful-looking appearance. It can help to smooth forehead wrinkles and nasolabial folds, plump sunken temples and tear troughs, as well as lift sunken cheeks. This treatment is safe, and results can last up to 24 months.
The illumia Collagen-Stimulator is a neocollagenesis filler made of Poly-D, L-Lactic Acid (PDLLA). PDLLA biodegradable and does not migrate post injection. This FDA-approved treatment stimulates collagen regeneration, which delivers natural facial volume and reduces signs of ageing. This treatment brings about an immediate effect to improve wrinkles and add volume to the injected area(s).
The illumia Collagen-Stimulator works on the principles of bio-stimulation, which refers to the production of new tissues and collagen.
PDLLA is structured as a microsphere. Its surface is porous, which serves to attract fibroblast into the microsphere. Within the microsphere, it is a spongiform structure that allows fibroblast to reside and activate collagen formation.
As PDLLA enters the skin, it actively fills the” voids” that are caused by skin ageing and the loss of collagen. At the treated area, the PDLLA molecules then kick start the process of tissue renewal and collagen formation.
Firstly, new cells will grow and attach onto the surface of the PDLLA particles as well as the spaces between the particles. Subsequently when there are no empty spaces between the PDLLA particles, the cells start to migrate into the microspheres. Once the cells fill the insides of the microspheres, new collagen is formed. Collagen expression will continue increase between and inside the microspheres for the five months after the treatment.
For those who are seeking non-surgical procedures to appear 10-15 years younger. Note: Suitability and amount administered will be determined after a doctor consultation.
The duration of this treatment is 45 minutes. This includes the duration for topical numbing cream to take effect.
The treatment is painless and has zero downtime. There might be redness and slight bruising at the injected area(s), which will subside in the next couple of days. There is no downtime, so you can resume your activities right after the treatment.
The effect is noticeable immediately after the treatment. Since PDLLA hydrolyses into CO2 and H2o, some patients might notice a loss in volume one week after the treatment as water is absorbed into the body. Nonetheless, this does not interfere with the results.
The recommended treatment would be 3 sessions, with an interval of 4-6 weeks between each session. Depending on how long your body takes for collagen to rebuild, improvements should be visible within the first few weeks of each session. Results should also last up to two years. However, it is key to note that your lifestyle choices (e.g. drinking alcohol and smoking) will affect how long the results last.
