Biostimulators such as Radiesse, Sculptra, and Bellafill are innovative cosmetic treatments that stimulate collagen production, enhancing skin elasticity and volume. Abbott Aesthetics offers cutting-edge biostimulators to catalyze your body’s innate healing properties, helping you achieve and maintain a naturally rejuvenated appearance.

Collagen: the secret to firm and taut skin

Collagen is the main structural protein in the skin and is responsible for providing firmness and elasticity. It binds skin tissues together, ensuring your skin looks firm and taut rather than sagging due to gravitational force. As we age, collagen production decreases, leading to wrinkles, sagging, and dullness. Biostimulators like Radiesse, Sculptra, and Bellafill work by stimulating collagen production and restoring the skin’s youthful firmness and tautness.

What are biostimulators?

Biostimulators are advanced cosmetic treatments designed to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. Unlike traditional fillers, which primarily add volume by directly filling wrinkles and hollow areas, biostimulators prompt the skin to generate its own collagen over time. This collagen replenishment enhances skin elasticity, smoothness, and volume, resulting in a rejuvenated appearance. Biostimulators offer longer-lasting results compared to traditional fillers, as they address the underlying cause of aging.

Biostimulators corrects:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Volume loss in cheeks, temples, and jawline
  • Facial asymmetry
  • Acne scars
  • Nasolabial folds (smile lines)
  • Marionette lines (lines from corners of mouth to chin)
  • Hollow under-eye area
  • Overall skin laxity and texture

Your Biostimulator Options


Radiesse is a biostimulator composed of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in a gel carrier. When injected, it provides immediate volume and structure while also stimulating the body’s collagen production for long-term rejuvenation. Results typically last up to 12-18 months, depending on the individual’s metabolism and treatment area. Radiesse is especially effective in restoring volume in areas like cheeks, chin, and jawline, improving contours, and minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and folds for a more youthful appearance.


Sculptra is a biostimulator composed of poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic material that stimulates collagen production when injected into the skin. Unlike traditional fillers, Sculptra works gradually over several months, gradually restoring volume and improving skin texture. Results typically last up to two years or more as the newly produced collagen continues to provide structural support and rejuvenation. Sculptra is particularly effective in treating facial volume loss, wrinkles, and folds, offering natural-looking and long-lasting rejuvenation.


Bellafill is a unique dermal filler comprised of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres suspended in a collagen gel. When injected, it provides immediate volume and support, while the PMMA microspheres stimulate collagen production for long-lasting results. Bellafill is FDA-approved to treat nasolabial folds and acne scars. Results can last up to five years or more, making it one of the longest-lasting injectable fillers available. Bellafill offers a semi-permanent solution for wrinkles and scars, providing natural-looking and enduring rejuvenation.

The biostimulators treatment

During the treatment, you’ll have a consultation with your provider to discuss your goals and medical history. After cleansing the treatment area, they’ll administer a numbing cream to minimize discomfort. Using a fine needle, the chosen biostimulator will be injected into specific areas of concern. The process typically takes 30-60 minutes.

The biostimulators recovery

You might experience swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection sites, but these usually diminish within a few days. While you can resume your normal activities immediately, it’s essential to follow any specific post-treatment instructions provided by your healthcare provider, such as avoiding strenuous activities and exposure to direct sunlight for the first 24-48 hours.

  • Longer-lasting results compared to traditional fillers
  • Gradual and natural-looking improvement
  • Treat multiple concerns such as volume loss, wrinkles, and scars
  • Reduce the need for frequent touch-ups

Biostimulators FAQs

How do biostimulators differ from traditional fillers?

Biostimulators stimulate the body’s natural collagen production, while hyaluronic acid fillers directly add volume by filling wrinkles and hollow areas. Biostimulators offer longer-lasting results compared to traditional fillers because they address the underlying cause of aging.

How long do biostimulator results last?

The duration of biostimulator results varies depending on the individual’s metabolism, treatment area, and the specific product used. Generally, results can last anywhere from 12 months to several years, with some treatments offering semi-permanent results.

Are there any side effects associated with biostimulators?

Common side effects of biostimulator treatments may include temporary swelling, bruising, redness, itching, or tenderness at the injection sites. These side effects are usually mild and temporary and resolve within a few days to a week.
