fillers for collagen stimulation

sculptra & radiesse for collagen stimulation

Collagen is the protein responsible for keeping our skin firm and youthful. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen which can result in fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of volume in our face. While there are many ways to stimulate collagen production such as laser treatments and microneedling, dermal fillers are one of the most popular and effective methods.

At Rosewood Medical Spa, we offer two types of dermal fillers specifically designed for collagen stimulation: Sculptra and Radiesse. Both of these fillers work by stimulating the body's natural production of collagen, resulting in long-lasting rejuvenation of the skin.


Sculptra is an injectable, cosmetic filler that can be used to help the body restore deep lines, wrinkles, and creases on the face. It uses poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) to promote collagen production in the targeted areas. The collagen that the body produces naturally repairs and restores the skin to produce subtle, but impactful differences.

The PLLA gel is injected into the skin where it then begins to spread out and absorb. This stimulates the body’s ability to produce extra collagen which builds support for the skin and helps to remove wrinkles and smile lines. For the best effects, patients are encouraged to have anywhere from two to four injection sessions, spaced roughly three weeks apart. Our trained practitioners will work with you to determine how many sessions are needed to achieve the desired results.


Radiesse is another FDA-approved dermal filler that is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a gel. CaHA is also naturally found in the body and has been used safely in medical procedures for decades. Radiesse not only provides immediate volume to the skin, but it also stimulates collagen production in the injected areas. This results in a smoother and more youthful-looking appearance that can last up to 18 months.

What can i expect during treatment?

In each of your treatments, one of our practitioners will map out all of the sites to be injected and clean the areas. A topical anesthetic may be applied to help with any discomfort. After this pre-work, the practitioner will inject the mapped sites to perform the Sculptra treatment.

Once the treatment is complete, the patient may have redness or swelling, but it should dissipate within the next day or two. This treatment does not include any downtime and patients can resume their daily activities immediately after injection. If the areas are feeling sore, cold packs can be applied to the sensitive areas a few minutes at a time within the first 24 hours. Makeup can be applied to the affected areas a few hours after the treatment is complete.

how long does it take to see results?

The length of time it takes for patients to notice results can vary patient to patient. Each person’s body is different and will produce the extra collagen at different rates. Some patients notice changes almost immediately, while others it can take a few treatments to reduce the smile lines, wrinkles, and creases that may be targeted.

Both Sculptra and Radiesse are excellent options for those looking to stimulate collagen production and rejuvenate their skin at Rosewood Medical Spa. Our highly trained professionals will work with you to create a customized treatment plan that addresses your specific concerns and helps you achieve your desired results.

Collagen stimulation

Collagen stimulation refers to the process of promoting the production of collagen in the skin. Collagen is a protein that provides structure, elasticity, and firmness to the skin. Various treatments and techniques can stimulate collagen production, such as laser therapies, microneedling, radiofrequency, and certain skincare products. By enhancing collagen synthesis, these treatments can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, improve skin texture and tone, and promote a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance over time.
