Collagen-stimulating injections

Over time, our body's enzymes break collagen down, causing skin to lose elasticity, fullness and to form wrinkles. Collagen stimulator (or biostimulator) restart the natural process of collagen production, which will replenish volume and encourage your body to rebuild its own collagen over time.

This replenishing effect helps to gradually reduce lines, wrinkles and folds, giving way to a fresh-looking appearance. The bonus of having increased collagen is that you’ll start to notice that your skin will take on a more youthful and glowing appearance.

Dr Ricky is also one of the first few, if not the first doctor in Brisbane to also use this treatment to perform body treatments such as non-surgical Brazilian butt lift. Other possible body treatments including skin tightening & rejuvenation of inner arm laxity & stretch marks.

* Individual results may vary.

Frequently Asked Questions
