While most dermal fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid gels that create temporary volume, bio-stimulating fillers work by triggering the body’s own natural skin rejuvenation processes for a more refreshed and youthful appearance.
They work over time, deep within the tissue to replace vital components of firmer, smoother-looking skin. At the Centre for Pure Skin, bio-stimulators are often recommended as a part of a plan for a patient who is seeking natural, long-lasting results.
The ideal candidate for bio-stimulator injections is in good health, is a non-smoker and is committed to following all pre- and post-care instructions. Candidates are over the age of 18 and have experienced volume loss in the skin due to aging or other factors.
Being West Michigan’s preferred provider* of bio-stimulator injections, we have experience and the trust of our patients to treat:
Over time, our skin’s ability to retain its youthful look decreases. Fat and collagen loss leads to skin laxity, wrinkles, and folds. Bio-stimulator injections can be used for facial rejuvenation to help replace lost volume and improve the skin’s structure by inducing new collagen growth.
When injected into facial divots, dimples and scars bio-stimulators can often soften the appearance of these facial irregularities. Some products offer immediate results while others work over time.
Bio-stimulators can help to smooth and tighten the neck skin, known as neck rejuvenation. They can also be used to replace age-related fat loss on the décolletage and help smooth away vertical necklines.

At the Centre for Pure Skin, we’ve found that the best way to offer the highest level of service is to start by seeing our Facial Aesthetic Consultant about bio-stimulators. During this appointment, we’ll determine if you are a good candidate and cover all the important details: possible risks and complications, before and after care instructions, expected outcomes and price. Once all your questions have been answered and you are ready to move forward, we’ll establish a treatment plan and schedule your treatment appointments.
For the most part, patients describe bio-stimulator injections as mildly uncomfortable. We do our best to create an environment that alleviates any pain that you may experience with numbing agents and other diversion techniques. You may find that you are slightly swollen, sore and possibly bruised for a day or two following your injections.
