With Clinical Nurse Specialist and Youth Lab Director of Nursing Hazel
Many of my clients visit Youth Lab wanting firmer, more youthful looking skin. Instead of wanting to enhance specific features – such as creating a sharper jawline or fuller lip – these clients are looking for an overall refresh of their skin’s appearance. If this sounds like you, then allow me to introduce you to one of my favourite treatments: Bio Stimulator.
In this blog post, we’ll delve into the world of bio stimulating injectables and their benefits. It’s important to be thoroughly informed before undertaking any cosmetic treatment. My Youth Lab colleagues and I will always perform a thorough consultation. Our approach is to asses your unique facial structure, skin condition, and concerns to ensure your treatment plan is a perfect fit for you.
What Is a Bio-Stimulator?
Bio Stimulator is an innovative injectable treatment that goes beyond the surface to stimulate collagen production deep within your skin. Unlike traditional dermal fillers that merely add volume temporarily, bio stimulators take a more holistic approach to facial rejuvenation.
Rather than filling specific deficits like traditional fillers, Bio Stimulators replace lost volume and stimulate collagen production to counteract the fat loss, bone re-absorbtion, and ligament laxity associated with aging.
How does Bio Stimulator boost collagen production?
Collagen, often referred to as the “fountain of youth,” is a key component of youthful, healthy skin. As we age, our collagen production naturally decreases, leading to sagging, fine lines, and wrinkles. The magic of bio stimulators lies in their ability to boost collagen production, addressing the root cause of these concerns.
Does Bio Stimulator give natural results?
Bio stimulators don’t deliver instant, dramatic changes like some injectables. Instead, they create a subtle, gradual transformation, allowing your friends and family to admire your youthful appearance without wondering if you’ve had “work” done. My clients love how beautifully natural the results are, while still making a noticeable change to the quality of the skin.
What is the longevity of Bio Stimulator treatment?
One of the standout features of bio-stimulators is their impressive longevity. While other fillers may require frequent touch-ups, the effects can last up to two years or more. This means more time enjoying your youthful glow. It’s important to note that every person’s facial anatomy is unique and different bodies metabolise filler at varying rates.
How versatile is Bio Stimulator?
One of the reasons clients and practitioners alike are singing the praises of Bio Stimulators is their incredible versatility. The treatment is suitable for a wide range of concerns, age, and skin types.. Whether you’re looking to restore volume, reduce wrinkles, or lift sagging skin, our bio stimulator can address your unique needs.
The Bio Stimulator Experience
How comfortable will Bio Stimulator treatment be?
Bio stimulator treatments are performed with minimal discomfort. Most patients describe the sensation as a mild pinch, and numbing agents are often used to enhance comfort during the treatment.
How much downtime should I expect with Bio Stimulator treatment?
For individuals with hectic schedules,bio stimulators remain a perfect choice. The beauty of this treatment lies in its minimal downtime, which allows you to quickly get back to your daily activities without undue interruption.
How much downtime is associated with Bio Stimulator treatment?
Aesthetic procedures may raise concerns about downtime, but with bio stimulation, rest assured that any potential disruption is kept to a minimum. Here’s why:
- Swift recovery. While bio stimulation is a powerful rejuvenation method, the recovery period is designed to be gentle. You may experience some very mild and temporary side effects, such as a hint of bruising or subtle swelling. These are normal and typically resolve on their own within a short period. Clients can anticipate two to seven days of downtime.
- Minimal impact to your routine. The beauty of bio stimulation is that it fits around your active lifestyle. The after effects are usually so subtle that they won’t impede your daily activities. You can confidently return to work, social gatherings, and all the things that make up your daily routine, knowing that any effects will be minimal and temporary.
Bio Stimulator Aftercare
Aftercare is an essential part of ensuring the best possible results with bio stimulation. We understand that it’s crucial to make it easy and stress-free for clients. That’s why we follow the “Golden Rule of 5-5-5” for your post-treatment care.
The Golden Rule: 5-5-5
We’ve simplified the aftercare process to make it as effortless as possible. The golden rule is to “massage 5 minutes, 5 times a day, for 5 days.” Let’s break it down:
Massage for 5 Minutes:
Your first step is to gently massage the treated area for just five minutes. The aim is to ensure even distribution of the bio stimulator beneath your skin. This simple act is not only therapeutic but also contributes to optimal results.
5 Times a Day:
To make this step as hassle-free as possible, we recommend that you perform these brief massages five times a day. You can easily incorporate these massages into your daily routine: once in the morning, before lunch, in the afternoon, before dinner, and before bed.
For 5 Days:
The Golden Rule of 5-5-5 only requires your attention for five days following your treatment. It’s a short-term commitment that yields long-lasting results. By the end of these five days, you’ll have played a crucial role in helping your body achieve its full potential in producing collagen for a youthful look.
Why the Golden Rule Matters:
We’ve designed this aftercare plan to be manageable, and here’s why it’s important:
- Optimal Results: Massaging ensures that the bio stimulator is evenly distributed in the treated area, setting the stage for the most effective collagen production.
- Minimal Disruption: The short duration of the “Golden Rule” means that you won’t need to make significant changes to your daily routine. It’s a minor commitment with major benefits.
- Your Active Role: By participating in this aftercare, you become an active part of the rejuvenation process. It’s your opportunity to contribute to your own transformation.
Post-treatment care doesn’t have to be intimidating or inconvenient. Embracing the “Golden Rule of 5-5-5” is a simple way to ensure that you get the most out of your Bio Stimulator treatment.
Bio Stimulators have gained a lot of popularity in recent years – and rightfully so! With impressive results that last and minimal downtime, it’s easy to see why so many clients are undergoing this treatment.
