ABOUT

What are collagen stimulators (胶原蛋白针)?

Collagen is the main building block that maintains our skin’s architecture, firmness and elasticity. However, collagen production in our body decreases at a steady rate of 1.5% annually once we hit our 20’s. Collagen Stimulators stimulate collagen production in the dermal tissues to provide infrastructure for elastin and hyaluronic acid. The more collagen present, the stronger skin architecture is.

Collagen-stimulating dermal fillers are designed for individuals who lack skin elasticity and firmness and allows our body to naturally absorb collagen.

While traditional fillers which contain hyaluronic acid, PCL Collagen Stimulator is primarily made up of 30% biodegradable polycaprolactone (PCL) microspheres and 70% carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) gel carrier.

HOW IT WORKS

How Do Collagen Stimulators Work?

PCL Collagen Stimulator works via a 2-step process, which gives helps with immediate correction of volume loss as well as long lasting results

1. Immediate restoration of volume

Once injected, the CMC gel carrier fills volume-lacking areas of the face immediately. Effects last for about 12 weeks.

2. Long-lasting volumisation

The PCL microspheres work at the same time to stimulate Type I collagen, the main type of collagen found in skin. This creates a long lasting volumisation effect of up to 3 years, depending on the type of Collagen Stimulator used.

In Singapore, the most common collagen stimulators are Radiesse, Sculptra and Ellansé.

1. Ellansé Collagen Stimulator

  • Ellansé S: 18 months
  • Ellansé M: 2 years
  • Ellansé L: 3 years

The difference in longevity between the 3 types of Ellansé collagen stimulators is due to the number of PCL molecules present. The longer the PCL molecule chain, the longer the results of the collagen stimulator.

2. Radiesse Collagen Stimulator

  • 12 to 18 months

3. Sculptra Collagen Stimulator

  • 25 months

Overall, collagen stimulator fillers last longer and act faster than traditional hyaluronic acid-based fillers, as hyaluronic acid stimulates collagen production subtly over a period of 2-3 months and breaks down after 6 to 18 months.
