Skin biostimulation gives firmness and tone to the skin and protects against free radicals that are continuously formed, especially during exposure to sunlight, through efficient stimulation of the metabolic activity of the fibroblasts and an increase of skin moisture.
The age range that can benefit from this procedure is therefore ample: from 20-25 upwards.
The method consists to inject hyaluronic acid (with a combination of amino acids, vitamins, and various mineral salts) or polynucleotides into the skin with a very thin disposable needle.
It’s effect is to stimulate the fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin thus giving the skin more elasticity, consistency and moisture, with the immediate result of increased skin firmness.
The treatment is quite quick; the application of a local anaesthetic for at least 30 minutes notably reduces the sensation of the injection, which is however, generally well tolerated.
These micro-injections are performed in different areas of the face, neck, back of the hands and the body.
Transitory erythema and swelling may be observed in the injection points.
Dermal biostimulation is compatible with dermal fillers for wrinkle correction, with IPL(intense pulsed light) or laser treatment and face lifting surgery. The result is a feeling of compactness and improved skin firmness. Depending on the products utilised, the epidermal biostimulation program contemplates weekly, fortnightly or monthly sessions. The treatment program can be customized to individual skin condition, phototype, age and the patient’s needs.
