If you are after facial rejuvenation that appears natural & refreshing, & not over-plumped or obvious, our experienced team of injectors at Cutis Dermatology is your answer. Our Brisbane based dermatologists & nurses have been using collagen stimulating fillers for over 15 years.

Why do we use collagen stimulating fillers over hyaluronic acid dermal fillers?

The two most important factors for a natural, fresh, age-appropriate filling result is firstly the skill set of your practitioner, & secondly the materials they work with. Our dermatologists have over 15 years’ experience in the use of all types of fillers. 


This is when they select collagen stimulating fillers-



  • For structural definition & creating angles. The most common treated area for this application is the jawline. Calcium hydroxyapatite closely mimics bone & is ideal for this area. 



  • For large volumes including the temples & cheeks in severe volume deception due to age or illness. PLLA filler is diluted in 9 mls, as compared to only one ml for hyaluronic acid fillers. 



  • For extra collagen stimulation, especially in sun damaged skin. Fillers are used as a ‘wash’ just under the skin’s surface to help activate fibroblasts or collagen stimulating cells.

When do we use these fillers under the eye area?

Collagen stimulating fillers, in particular calcium hydroxyapatite, is useful in patients who have Tyndall due to thin skin under the eyes. Tyndall is due to too high a concentration of HA filler, & or if the product is too superficial. 


For complex jobs like these, our injectors use a hyper diluted formulation of filler. The downside is that it can take 3-4 months for optimal outcomes. 

Why do we prefer collagen stimulating fillers in the hands?

Aging hands that have lost the firmness of youth & and now appear bony, dehydrated & can be rejuvenated with the help of these fillers. They provide volume & stimulate your own body to produce collagen to restore a smoother, plumper look to your hands. 


We find that calcium hydroxyapatites is more effective & more cost effective than hyaluronic acid fillers, with the added benefit of lasting longer. Fillers are best combined with lasers as the latter addresses skin quality including pigmentation & sun damage. 

How long do collagen stimulating fillers last?

Between 2-3 years, which is longer than most hyaluronic acid fillers

Dermaceutic All Things Pigment 21 Day Kit

Our injectors have extensive experience in the use of longer lasting collagen stimulating dermal fillers. These fillers are best combined with lasers & energy devices that work synergistically to activate your immune system to regenerate hyaluronic acid & collagen. 

When will I see the results?

Immediately, however, the best results may take an extra 2-4 months. The advantage of these fillers is that they stimulate your body to produce more collagen over time, as compared to normal hyaluronic acid fillers.
