How it works
Are you determined to slow the ageing process and age gracefully? Collagen stimulating injections are a powerful treatment to effectively combat facial ageing.
As we age, our skin and facial tissues undergo significant changes. Bone resorption takes away youthful facial contours. Fat redistribution gives you a heavy and hollow appearance. Collagen loss leaves your skin saggy, soft, and wrinkled.
Collagen stimulating injections replenish facial volume and skin collagen. This restores your defined facial contours and improves hollowness. Renewed collagen strengthens your skin, making it look and feel firmer and tighter.
The medical professionals at Cosmetic Connection are experts in collagen stimulating injections. With our personalised approach, you can rejuvenate your appearance, achieving long-lasting, age-appropriate results that look and feel natural. Invest in yourself and age-gracefully by booking in for collagen stimulating injections with us now.
Redefine the facial contours of your younger days using collagen stimulating injections. Renowned in the anti-ageing industry, collagen stimulating injections have powerful benefits.
Collagen stimulators volumise, and rejuvenate your skin at the molecular level. They also stimulate your cells to produce new collagen over 3 months, significantly improving skin quality, tone and texture. Renewed collagen can give you a result lasting up to an impressive 7-10 years.
Enjoy enhanced facial contours and an improvement in sagging and hollowness that comes with new volume and collagen. We can even use collagen stimulators in body areas like the hands, elbows, and knees. Treatment takes less than 20 minutes and gives an immediate, natural-looking result. There’s no downtime either.
Preparation & aftercare
Follow our preparation guidelines for collagen stimulating injections:
- Remove all makeup immediately before your appointment
- If applicable, shave or closely trim the treatment area the day before your appointment
- Avoid excessive alcohol within 24 hours of your appointment

Collagen stimulating injections are a treatment designed to restore collagen and add volume. Also known as collagen injections, they are made of biocompatible polymers used in medicine for decades.
When injected, these products cause an intense collagen stimulating process. This leads to the production of fresh collagen fibres. New collagen reduces facial hollowness and thickens and tightens your skin.
There are two types of collagen stimulating injections:
- Gel based collagen stimulating injections: these give an immediate correction in facial volume. Over 3 months, the volume is replaced by collagen. This gives a long-lasting, natural-looking improvement in areas of hollowing and volume loss.
- Powder based collagen stimulating injections: Historically used for medical facial wasting, this type of collagen injection doesn’t give immediate volume. It causes collagen production over 3 months, building up a gradual result.
If you want to rejuvenate your facial contours and skin, consider collagen stimulating injections. They restore facial structure and tone and tighten your skin. Results look and feel natural, and are long lasting.
People who want to invest in ageing gracefully prefer collagen stimulating injections.
Collagen stimulating injections can rejuvenate most areas of your face and body. Common areas treated include:
Ageing-related collagen loss causes your skin to become thin, weak, and saggy.
Collagen stimulating injections are a non-surgical treatment that restores collagen. This restores strength to your skin, giving it a tighter, more youthful look and feel.
Collagen stimulating injections use specific biopolymers to active fibroblast cells. These cells then produce new collagen.
Collagen is a structural protein found in many parts of your body. It acts as the glue that holds your tissues together. We lose collagen with age.
By replacing collagen, the treatment rejuvenates your skin and facial tissues. This improves structure and tissue strength, giving more youthful contours and skin quality.
You can review current starting and average costs for collagen stimulating injections at Cosmetic Connection on our pricing page.
The cost of collagen stimulating injections depends on the extent and complexity of your treatment. We have packages available for more comprehensive treatments.
Collagen stimulating injections are a great option for those who:
- Want to focus on age gracefully.
- Are experiencing ageing of their skin and facial tissues.
- Have sunken and hollow facial features.
- Are experiencing facial wasting from intense exercise or weight loss.
- Notice thinning and sagging skin.
- Want a longer lasting, more permanent solution than dermal fillers.
We take a conservative approach when performing collagen stimulating injections.
Dermal filler is a volumising gel made of hyaluronic acid. It is temporary and reversible, and used to correct facial volume loss and wrinkles. It can also enhance specific features of the face and body.
Collagen stimulating injections are treatment that restores collagen. Certain types also have an immediate volumising effect. We use them in the same way as dermal fillers, but they give a much more natural, long-lasting result. Collagen gives your face more structural support and long-lasting volume that looks and feels natural.
As we age, the skin and deeper tissues of the face, neck and body lose collagen. The quality of the collagen also decreases. This leads to common signs of ageing like hollowness, wrinkles and thin skin. Our faces also lose deep fat and bone volume.
Collagen stimulating injections target the key contributing factors of ageing. Gel based collagen stimulating injections restore lost volume, and restore new, high-quality collagen. This sculpts youthful facial contours, and improves the tone, tightness, and elasticity of your skin. Powder based collagen injections restore collagen.
We cannot treat your upper and lower eyelids, nose and lips with collagen stimulating injections.
This is because of the delicate natural of the skin in these areas.
Collagen stimulating injections take 20 minutes. There is minimal discomfort and no downtime with this treatment.
After cleaning and numbing the planned treatment areas, we precisely inject the collagen stimulators. The injected areas are then moulded.
You’ll see an immediate result from gel-type products. As your body makes new collagen, the result will improve out to 3 months.
Your session will begin with a consultation to assess your suitability for collagen injections. We will then design your bespoke treatment plan.
Your treatment will take about 20 minutes depending on the extent and complexity of the procedure. Your skin will be cleaned to minimise the risk of infection. We then mark your skin to ensure accurate product placement.
We inject collagen stimulators with either a fine needle, or a blunt tipped cannula. There is almost no discomfort with this process, as we have a range of strong numbing solutions.
After your treatment there may be some mild swelling and tenderness. This will settle quickly. Applying a wrapped cold pack to the injected area will reduce swelling.
Collagen stimulating injections have very little discomfort. We use strong numbing, and injection techniques proven to minimise pain.
Gel collagen stimulating injections give an immediate result that improves over 3 months. The result from powder collagen stimulators develops over 12 weeks.
Collagen stimulators are renowned for their long-lasting, natural results. They can last 5 times longer than dermal fillers.
Collagen stimulating injections are not permanent. While results are very long-lasting results, the product and collagen eventually wear off.
Proper preparation before collagen stimulating injections is crucial for a safe treatment:
- Cease all supplements 1 week before your treatment (unless taking them for medical reasons)
- Avoid excessive alcohol within 24 hours of your treatment
- Avoid wearing makeup to your appointment
- Closely shave the treatment area where applicable the day before your treatment
After collagen stimulating injections, you can resume most activity immediately. Follow the treatment aftercare for swift healing and great results:
- Gently apply a wrapped ice pack to reduce discomfort and swelling
- Do not massage the treated area unless advised otherwise
- Avoid major dental treatment for 2 weeks (clarify with your dentist regarding suitability is you are unsure)
- Avoid strenuous exercise and alcohol for 24 hours
After collagen stimulating injections, you may experience mild skin redness, tenderness and swelling. Bruising can also occur from time to time. These generally settle quickly over the first few days.
As the swelling subsides, you may notice a slight drop in the visible result over the first 6 weeks. This is normal.
As your body produces new collagen over 12 weeks, the result will return and improve.
Collagen stimulating injections have an excellent safety profile. They are biocompatible, and broken down naturally by the body.
Importantly, collagen stimulating injections are not reversible. It is vital that your injector has experienced in collagen stimulators.
At Cosmetic Connection our team of doctors have extensive experience in the use of collagen stimulating injections.
Serious side effects are rare with collagen stimulating injections. Common ones include bruising and swelling, and some mild discomfort. These usually resolve in 2-3 days.

What is collagen?
Collagen is the most important structural protein found in the connective tissue of the body. It makes up 25-35% of whole-body protein content, making it the body’s most abundant protein. It’s primary role in aesthetics is to keep your skin and underlying structures strong, dense and well-supported.
Our skin starts to lose collagen from as young as 30 years old. This leads to softening, thinning and weakening of your skin and underlying supporting structures of your face. This is seen as a loss of facial structure, and the development of hollows, wrinkles and folds. Collagen stimulating injections provide a convenient solution to maintain and restore collagen and facial volume.
Restoring collagen can provide a substantial yet natural improvement in visible skin folds and wrinkles. It also enhances the contours of your face and neck, and rejuvenates the quality of the facial tissues.
How collagen stimulating injections work
The gel-based collagen stimulating injections used here at Cosmetic Connection have a dual mechanism of action.
Immediate volume correction is provided by the CMC gel carrier that makes of 70% up of the injected product. This restores facial volume lost with age or weight-loss, and enhances the shape and contours of your face and facial features. CMC is resorbed by the body over the following 2-3 months.
Collagen stimulation occurs in response to either the polycaprolactone or calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres that are mixed with the CMC gel. These microspheres make up approximately 30% of the injected material, and the type of spheres depends on the product used. The body identifies these microspheres, and in response produces new collagen fibres. This rejuvenates the quality of your facial tissues, providing a very long-lasting improvement in facial volume, skin tone and tissue tightness. This collagen-based result improves over the first 2-3 months, replacing and building on the result initially provided by the CMC gel.
What are the different types of collagen stimulating injections?
- These provide an immediate improvement in the shape, volume and contour of your face, and also stimulate the body to produce new collagen fibres.
- They are injected in the same way as typical dermal fillers.
- They produce a high-quality, type 1 collagen that can last many years.
- It takes 12 weeks to see the full effect of the collagen stimulation process.
- Power-based collagen stimulating injections are dissolved in water before injection and spread across the planned treatment area.
- Any immediate volumetric correction is lost within the first few days, due to reabsorption of the injected water.
- The water acts as a dispersal medium to spread the powder.
- They produce type 3 collagen that can last many years.
- Strict aftercare compliance is required, with frequent massage for the first 5 days to ensure an even result.
- The final result is seen 12 weeks after the procedure.
Gel-based collagen stimulating injections are the gold-standard product for collagen stimulation. They provide an immediate result, better quality collagen, easier aftercare, and are more predictable than powder-based collagen stimulators.
What are the benefits of collagen stimulating injections?
Gel-based collagen stimulating fillers give an immediate correction in facial volume, structure, shape and in the appearance of skin wrinkles and folds.
70% of the injected product is made up of a biocompatible CMC gel that both improves your appearance through volume restoration, and acts as a carrier for the collagen stimulating microspheres.
The injected collagen stimulator contains either polycaprolactone or calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres. These are evenly dispersed suspended in the injected CMC gel.
Once injected, the microspheres stimulate the production of new collagen fibres over a 12 week period. This replaces and builds on the result from the CMC gel, improving facial volume and structure, softening wrinkles and folds, and tightening and rejuvenating the skin and facial tissue with very natural-looking and feeling results that last.

Are collagen stimulating injections safe?
Collagen stimulating injections boost the production of collagen in your skin. This improves skin texture and elasticity, and reduces the wrinkles and scars. These injections use substances which are biocompatible and have an extensive history of safe use in medicine.
When administered by a qualified medical professional, collagen stimulating injections are considered safe. However, as with all medical procedures, there are potential risks and side effects. These include temporary redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection site. Rarely, more severe complications like infection or skin damage can occur.
It is important to have a detailed consultation with a trusted professional before undergoing collagen stimulating injections. You can discuss your medical history, expectations, and potential risks. This minimises any potential risks while maximising the safety of the treatment.
Trust the team at Cosmetic Connection to perform your collagen stimulating injections safely and effectively. Our qualified medical professionals ensure your collagen stimulating injections are performed safely by using premium products and evidence-based techniques.
