Bio-Stimulating Treatment

Bio-stimulating treatments are a cosmetic procedure involving the use of specific products that activate collagen production in the skin. By targeting fibroblasts, the cells crucial for collagen regeneration, these injections help to prevent additional collagen loss. Bio-stimulating treatments act as effective agents to fight against facial aging.


Bio-stimulating treatments are designed to rejuvenate the skin by stimulating our body’s natural collagen production.  Unlike volumising products that provide an immediate enhancement, bio-stimulating treatments work gradually over several weeks to months.


We only use bio-stimulating treatments that have been approved by Therapeutic Goods Association (TGA). Bio-stimulating treatments commonly contain substances such as poly-L-actic acid or calcium hydroxylapatitie (CaHA). Due to the changes in the recent TGA guidelines, we are unable to disclose the specific brand names that we use within our clinic.



Bio-stimulating treatments are designed to rejuvenate and enhance the skin by stimulating collagen production. Collagen is an important protein that provides structural support, firmness, and elasticity to the skin. As we age, collagen production naturally decreases, leading to wrinkles, sagging, and loss of volume.

The benefits of bio-stimulating treatments for the skin include:

  • Improved skin texture: An increase in collagen helps to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin texture.
  • Enhanced firmness and elasticity: Collagen provides structural support to the skin, resulting in improved firmness and elasticity.
  • Increased volume: bio-stimulating injections aid in the restoration of volume loss in areas such as the under-eyes, cheeks, temples, lower-face region, neck and decolletage, among other areas of the body.
  • Long Lasting results: Whilst results might not be immediately visible, the results from bio-stimulating injections are long-lasting and can typically last from one-two years.
  • Natural looking results: bio-stimulating injections stimulate the body’s natural collagen production, resulting in natural-looking skin rejuvenation.

In summary, bio-stimulating treatments are a sought-after cosmetic treatment, to address the signs of aging and improve the overall appearance of the skin.



Bio-stimulating treatments are typically recommended for individuals who are experiencing the signs of aging or who would like to improve their overall appearance of the skin.

You may be suitable for bio-stimulating treatment if you have one or more of the following:

  • Aging Skin – fine lines, wrinkles and loss of firmness due to skin aging
  • Volume Loss – loss of volume in the under-eyes, cheeks, temples and lower-face region
  • Skin Texture – uneven skin texture, roughness and crepey skin
  • Realistic expectations – those who are willing to wait weeks to months to experience results
  • Good overall health – good skin health, good internal health


Upon arrival to our clinic, your Cosmetic Registered Nurse will apply topical anaesthetic to the treatment area(s). In addition, we do offer happy gas (nitrous oxide) if required.


Every non-surgical procedure involves a certain amount of risk, and it is important that you understand these risks and the possible complications associated. The majority of patients do not experience the following, but you should discuss each possible risk with your physician to ensure that you understand the risks and can make an informed decision regarding your treatment.

Common side effects may occur immediately or maybe delayed and include but are not limited to the following:

  • Bruising
  • Bleeding/Haematoma
  • Inflammatory Reactions (swelling, Skin redness)
  • Itchiness
  • Tenderness
  • Paraesthesia/Numbness

Other adverse reactions may include:

  • Induration or nodules
  • Skin Discoloration
  • Weak filling effect
  • Infections including abscesses, granuloma, hypersensitivity

Extremely rare but serious adverse events associated with intravascular injection of products have been reported and include temporary and permanent visual impairment, blindness, cerebral ischemia or cerebral haemorrhage, leading to stroke, skin necrosis, and damage to underlying structures.


The following are very common side effects after treatment and should resolve with time.  

  • Swelling 
  • Bruising 
  • Redness 
  • Puncture Marks 
  • Asymmetry

To prevent and/or help minimise any bruising after your treatment:  

  • Application of a cold compress to the treatment area immediately and for at least 15minutes after. 
  • The regular intermittent application of cold packs during the first 24-48 hours may be beneficial. A cycle to consider is 10min on and 5min off. 
  • Sleep with the head elevated for the first evening. 
  • Vigorous exercise can increase blood pressure and aggravate any bruising that is developing – therefore, exercise should be avoided for the first 24 hours. 
  • You should avoid extreme heat for the first 24hrs (or until bruising has resolved). 
  • Topical creams that may help with bruising – reduction in the development and helping in the resolution. 
  • Arnica cream – apply liberally to affected area 3-4x per day until resolution 
  • Vitamin k cream – apply liberally to affected area 3-4x per day until resolution 

Final Results – Your final results can take two-four weeks. Generally speaking, a minimum of three treatments are required to achieve your desired results.  

Aftercare – Please contact the clinic immediately 1300 373 662 if you experience any inflammatory reaction and/or side effect. Late onset inflammatory response may occur at least 2 months after injection. If necessary, additional treatments, medications and/or surgery may be necessary.
