Facial collagen stimulation for nonsurgical rejuvenation
Ameliee: There have been a variety of devices proposed for stimulation of facial collagen production, such as the "galvanic spas", etc. Many of the current fillers, such as Sculptra and Radiesse suggest that they can stimulate facial collagen production and the short term results seem to indicate that they are effective, to a degree. In seeking safe, cost-effective, nonoperative modalities for facial collagen stimulation or rejuvenation, radiofrequency has been used with variable success, Thermage, Fraxel, Viora, Exilis. I have recently brought on Ultherapy, a FDA approved modality for nonsurgical lifting. The micro-focused ultrasound is applied to the deeper layers of the face & gradually promotes collagen stimulation, over 3-4months. In my opinion, this is the "real deal"!
