What Can Bio-Stimulators Do For Me?
Bio-stimulators are injectable substances that trigger collagen production in the area of injection. The treatment can be a great way to target concerns about skin tone, texture, and firmness. A nurse or doctor at Inigo Cosmetic will choose the injection points carefully and design a treatment plan just for you.
This injectable treatment is a liquid compound that contain a combination of ingredients that aim to help keep your skin healthy and hydrated.
Once injected, the substance distributes itself beneath the skin, triggering hydration and collagen renewal. Since an increase in collagen production happens gradually, results will also be seen progressively as your skin processes the effects of the substance. An ongoing treatment plan can also help compound the results over time.
Bio-stimulators, or bio-stimulators, are a highly adaptable treatment, which means they can work for many skin types and tones. Whether you are looking for a preventative for facial ageing, or to treat existing lines and wrinkles, you could experience great benefits from bio-stimulators. But despite its versatility, it’s worth having a discussion with a skincare professional who can assess your goals and whether the treatment is a good option for you. A consultation will also allow you to ask questions and ensure that you are clear on what the treatment will involve and whether the potential outcomes are in line with your desires.
Good candidates are usually people who are looking to improve their skin’s:

How Does it Work?
Bio-stimulators are popular due to their unique, highly concentrated compound. The substance is designed to spread when injected, distributing itself beneath the skin smoothly from specific injection points. This helps it to integrate into your skin’s tissue, stimulating collagen and cell renewal.
After injection, the bio-stimulator substance remains active in the skin, slowly releasing certain ingredients and collagen fibroblasts. The results are then seen over the following months and can last for up to two years. Follow-up appointments may benefit those who wish to continue to continue combating signs of ageing over time.
What Are the Risks?
Due to the carefully designed formula, bio-stimulators are considered a low-risk treatment. However, like any cosmetic treatment, there is always a slight risk of unwanted side effects. There is a chance you could experience redness, itchiness, swelling, or sensitivity after treatment, which should subside on their own. If you notice any severe side effects or reactions, it’s important to contact us for professional advice.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Bio-stimulators are not to be confused with other injectable treatments like dermal filler or anti-wrinkle treatments. Although there might be similarities (like the use of hyaluronic acid in both fillers and bio-stimulators), each injectable treatment is designed to achieve very different effects. Dermal fillers are designed to change contours and increase facial volume by remaining in their location under the skin. Bio-stimulators are different, firstly, in that they aren’t designed to increase volume, and they don’t remain in the skin the way fillers do. Their purpose is to infuse the skin with hydration and trigger collagen in order to treat facial laxity and ageing.
Although bio-stimulators are minimally invasive, there is still a need for aftercare. Taking good care of your skin after treatment will help reduce any side effects and help your skin process the effects of the treatment. This may include:
- Avoiding exercise for 48 hours
- Not using makeup for 12 hours
- Drink enough water
- Avoid blood-thinning medications
Your nurse or doctor at Inigo Cosmetic may give you further instructions to follow.
Most often, bio-stimulators are used on the face and neck to treat signs of ageing in these areas. But we can also use it for other areas, depending on your needs, such as the arms, hands, and décolletage.
Clients should speak about their desired outcomes with their nurse or doctor in order to manage expectations. It’s important to note that bio-stimulators are not volumising, meaning it doesn’t stay in the skin the same way fillers do. Rather, the cosmetic effects are achieved through stimulation of the underlying structures of the skin. Since every patient is different, with different skin needs and treatment plans, results may vary. Book a consultation to find out what bio-stimulators can do for your skin specifically.
