Juvederm and collagen

Yes, juvederm will stimulate collagen production, but do not expect the collagen to be enough volume to support what the Juvederm did for you.

Juvederm and Restylane probably stimulate a very small amount of collagen, but that’s not the primary way that they work. With these two fillers, the product itself is what corrects wrinkles. Sculptra, however, is a collagen stimulator and that is the primary way it works. With Radiesse, about 10% of the correction comes from stimulating collagen.

Fillers generally do not stimulate your own collagen formation. Some times they can cause scar which is collagen.

There are few things that stimulate collagen formation. Also there are many companies and machines, lights, electrical that claim new collagen formation BUYER BE WARE.

Collagen stimulation

Yes, the juvaderm family of products should stimulate collagen formation just like restylane has been shown to do.  There are just subtle differences between the two, but they are very close to one another in molecule, etc.

Collagen stimulation a minor issue with Restylane and Juvederm

Colalgen stimulation with injectable dermal fillers varies considerably with the type of filler. The benefits of it, however, are debatable especially with the HA fillers including Restylane and Juvederm. Fortunately these products typically give a long-lasting result anyway.
