What are Collagen Stimulators?

Collagen stimulators, also known as bio stimulators, are injectable treatments that stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. Collagen is the most common protein in the body, used to form a stable framework to support cells and tissue. Skin requires a healthy collagen store to maintain a tight, elastic, and youthful appearance.

Sculptra Aesthetic

Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable treatment to gradually replace lost collagen in the skin. It contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which helps to restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin to combat facial wrinkles. Sculptra works with your body to stimulate collagen production. Over time, the PLLA microparticles are absorbed, leaving behind your own natural collagen for a more youthful appearance. Results can last up to 2 years.

Sculptra is an ideal treatment for improving the integrity of the skin. Common areas for Sculptra treatments are the face and neck.

The Patient Experience


Out of the several injectors I’ve went to, Haley Outcalt is by far the most talented, knowledgeable and professional. Though I’ve gotten botox on several occasions, this was my first time getting lip injections- I was nervous and excited. My lip results are absolute perfection, they are so beautiful and natural looking.

Haley is AMAZING at everything she does! She is very knowledgeable, sweet and always looks out for everyones best interests.. I always look forward to sitting in her chair!! I can’t wait for my next visit!!

I have used Haley for quite a few years to do all of my injections and have only ever had amazing results! From Dysport to facial fillers and Sculptra, all of my results from treatments with Haley have always been perfect. She always comes across expertly educated in the products and techniques she is using and I love how passionate she is about the newest things to hit the market. I can count on her to always introduce me to the best products and techniques that will work for my anti aging needs. My husband and I both see Haley for our injections and we love that she offers concierge service to accommodate our busy schedules. She’s worth every penny!

Who is a Candidate for Collagen Stimulators?

Healthy adults who are seeking treatment for volume loss, sagging skin, and facial wrinkles due to aging can benefit from collagen stimulators. Patients who are pregnant or nursing should not receive collagen stimulator treatment. For more information regarding candidacy, please contact our office today to schedule a consultation.

The Treatment Process

To begin treatment, the skin will be cleansed. A topical numbing cream may be applied to ensure your comfort. The collagen stimulator of your choice will then be skillfully injected using a fine needle. Overall treatment time may vary depending on the number of injections required to achieve optimal results.


There is no downtime needed following collagen stimulator treatment, so you can return to your usual activities, barring extensive exercise for 24 hours. Following treatment, you may experience mild redness, tenderness, bruising, and swelling at the treatment site, which should resolve within a few days. Once the effects of your collagen stimulator treatment wear off, repeat treatment is needed to maintain results.
