Over time, skin loses its full, firm, youthful appearance. This is the result of a natural ageing process: the older skin is damaged, becomes thinner, and loses its natural elasticity also fat is lost from the facial contours.
As a result, hollows appear around the temples and cheek area. This reduction in skin volume can make the face look thin and narrow; possibly making people appear older than they are.
Fortunately, Collagen Stimulation may smooth lines and wrinkles and help the skin regain a firm and youthful appearance by restoring skin volume that may have naturally lost.
Collagen Stimulation is suitable for increasing the volume of depressed areas, particularly to correct skin depressions, such as in skin creases, wrinkles, folds, scars and for skin ageing. Collagen Stimulation is also suitable for large volume corrections of the signs of facial fat loss.
Enhancing the appearance with Collagen Stimulation can restore facial contour and get rid of lines and wrinkles without surgery. Collagen Stimulation is a synthetic, injectable material that contains skin-smoothing micro particles to help lift and smooth sagging skin, severe wrinkles, creases, dark circles, and scars.
Poly-L-lactic acid, the main ingredient of Collagen Stimulation, has been used successfully in surgical procedures for bioresorbable sutures, in bone plates and screws, and as a medium for medication, among others for more than 35 years.
Collagen Stimulation has been specially developed to repair contour defects in the face. More than three million patients have been treated worldwide since 1999. Collagen Stimulation is long-lasting, biocompatible, and biodegradable.
Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi explains: Unlike surgical options, Collagen Stimulation can provide gradual, natural-looking results with less traumatic treatment. Collagen Stimulation works in the lower layers of the skin to smooth and firm the treated areas of the face.
The procedure will take as little as 30 minutes. The number of necessary injections depends on several factors, including age, how deep wrinkles are, and the type of treatment patient desires.
In contrast to some other treatments that require frequent refresher sessions, a clinical study has shown that the aesthetic improvements obtained with Collagen Stimulation have persisted for up to 4 years in many patients.
There may be some discomfort with the procedure. The most common side effects with the use of Collagen Stimulation include injection-related side effects at the site of injection, such a slight tenderness, redness, bruising, or swelling. These effects generally last, on average, 2-6 days. After treatment, patient should notice gradual results over the next several weeks
As with all injections patients will feel some discomfort. It may be that they notice a brief burning sensation at the injection site. An ice pack applied after the treatment will help to calm the skin.
Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi gives special aftercares instructions. These include massaging the treated areas of the face in the first few days after the treatment.
One possible delayed side effect with Collagen Stimulation can be the formation of small bumps under the skin in the treated area. These small bumps should not be visible, and patients may notice them only when they press on the treated skin.
These bumps tend to form within the first 6 to 12 months after the first treatment. Occasionally, these bumps go away by themselves. Visible bumps, sometimes with redness or colour change to the treated area, have also been reported. As with all procedures that involve an injection through the skin, there is a risk of infection.
Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi explains the course of Collagen Stimulation: At the first Collagen Stimulation treatment visit, it may appear that Collagen Stimulation worked immediately because of the swelling from the injections and the water used to dilute Collagen Stimulation. In a few days, when the swelling goes down and the water is absorbed by the body the patient may look as he did before the treatment.
Collagen Stimulation takes time to work; results should be noticeable after approximately 4-6 weeks.
Collagen Stimulation is an injectable volumising long lasting treatment that promises to smooth deep lines and wrinkles and restore facial volume in hollow areas and tightening loose skin.
The improvement is gradual and gives an entirely natural-looking plumper face.
It is considered to be an excellent non-invasive alternative to procedures like facelifts, since Collagen Stimulation reverses the signs of aging.
The injected results reveal themselves gradually, usually over a period of about 6 months, and can last up to four years.
Collagen Stimulation is approved by the FDA for use in the United States, though it was originally developed in 1999 and has been popular in Europe since then.
Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi said: Collagen Stimulation helps to increase collagen production, a substance naturally produced by the body to help fill out wrinkles and improve the skin’s fullness, texture, and elasticity.
The active ingredient in Collagen Stimulation, poly-L-lactic acid, is a bio-degradable, synthetic polymer that has been used in medicine for over 35 years with consistently safe results.
Collagen Stimulation can also be combined with other non-invasive procedures, like Laser Skin Rejuvenation and Microdermabrasion, for even more dramatic results.
The actual treatment usually takes less than 30 minutes. Patients may experience some swelling in the treated area at first. However, this is simply the result of the water which is used to dilute Collagen Stimulation, and will be absorbed by the body within a few days.
For the next 4 weeks patients may not see a noticeable difference in your skin, but this is normal - it can take up to 2-3 months for the results to start revealing themselves, and up to 6 months for the full results to be seen.
The gradual change can make treatment less overwhelming and even ideal for patients who are not trying to showcase the fact that they have had a cosmetic procedure.
Collagen Stimulation is especially effective on the wrinkles around nasolabial folds and marionette lines. However, it is also effective for filling out sunken cheeks, making bags under the eyes less prominent and removing wrinkles and fine lines on other areas of the face.
Dr Ayham AL-Ayoubi, who is a renowned Collagen Stimulation Surgeon and is an internationally recognized expert in the procedure, has performed more than 4000 cases of Collagen Stimulation treatments at London Medical and Aesthetic clinic.
His clinical studies have shown that the Collagen Stimulation results last for 4-5 years after the final treatment has been completed, significantly longer than any other injectable treatment.
Are there any celeb fans? Yes, Dannii Minogue, Anna Ryder Richardson, Sharon Davies and Madonna.
Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi explains to his patients that they may see an immediate change and then the skin reverts to normal while the collagen is stimulated and the full result takes a few weeks to show fully.
The skin after Collagen Stimulation treatment must be massaged to avoid nodules forming under the skin.
Within just a few weeks patients will start to get comments on their skin, that it looks fresher, fuller and certainly younger.

Collagen Stimulation is a simple, injectable volumising treatment that works by stimulating the build-up of the body’s natural collagen to help smooth out lines and wrinkles. It helps to restore lost facial volume and to give a fuller, firmer, younger-looking face.
Collagen Stimulation helps to restore facial contouring and to eliminate lines, wrinkles and sunken cheeks without resorting to face lifts or cosmetic surgery. The enhancement is long lasting and looks completely natural.
Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi explains: Due to the ageing process, the skin starts thinning and losing its natural elasticity. It becomes loose and starts to wrinkle. Also gradually lose the fatty tissue that helps to fill out the face, causing the skin to sag and wrinkle even more.

It can help to correct: Deep folds between the nose and the mouth (nasolabial folds), Folds around the corners of the mouth (marionette lines), Sunken cheeks, Wrinkles and lines in the cheeks or chin and Deep scars.
On average, two to four treatments are required and results should be noticeable between four and six weeks afterwards. By helping to replenish own facial collagen and restore lost volume, Collagen Stimulation can give a fuller, more natural look that can last up to three-five years.
