Collagen is the main structural protein in our bodies and constitutes approximately 30% of the total protein in our body. It is found in our muscles, skin, tendons, bones, blood vessels and digestive organs. Collagen is responsible for tissue regeneration, elasticity and firmness of the skin.
Unfortunately, starting from the age of 25, we start to lose collagen from our bodies at a rate of 1.5% per year. Collagen fibers gets weaker and shorter. As a result, wrinkles and lines start to appear and the shape as well as the expression of our face changes. This can be prevented.
Collagen Stimulation therapy, is an innovative anti-aging treatment, designed to stimulate collagen and elastin production, which, in turn, leads to skin regeneration and reconstruction, improvement of skin elasticity, reduction of wrinkles and treating scars as well as stretch marks.

What are the Benefits of Collagen Stimulation?
- Restores connective tissue of the skin, improving
elasticity and firmness
- Stimulates the production collagen and
promotes natural regeneration of the skin
- Reduces signs of aging skin
- Improves the appearance of scars and stretch marks
- Nourishes, hydrates and rejuvenates the skin
- Smoothes out and softens facial lines and wrinkles
How is Collagen Stimulation Applied?
Before the treatment, local anesthetic cream is applied to the treated skin area. Following this, the collagen based biomaterial is administered by very thin needles in small doses and at different points. After the injection, it is important to massage the area treated to ensure a uniform distribution of the product. Although the length of the treatment may vary upon the number of areas to be treated, it generally takes around 15 minutes.
What are the Side Effects of the Treatment?
As the collagen based material is biodegradable and biocompatible, it does not lead to any allergic reactions. Following the treatment, at the injection site, mild and temporary side effects such as; redness, swelling, itching or skin sensitivity may be experienced. These reactions may disappear within a few hours or last up maximum to 2-3 days.
How Many Sessions are Needed?
Depending on the patient’s skin condition, the recommended course of treatment is 2-4 sessions within a 2-week interval. To achieve the full effect, the treatment is recommended to be applied 1-2 times per year. The first effects of the treatment after each session are visible within 7 – 14 days. Most patients achieve optimal results within four sessions. After this period, the skin is tighter and glowing. Additionally, the difference in skin elasticity as well as density is clearly observable.
How Long do the Results Last?
The effects of the treatment lasts around 12 to 18 months.
