Bio Stimulation Dermal Fillers

Are fine lines, wrinkles and facial hollows making you look older than you feel? Are you seeking a longer-lasting treatment to fill facial lines and wrinkles while also restoring facial volume over time? If you are trying to achieve natural-looking results without going under the scalpel, bio-stimulation dermal fillers may be right up your alley.

This up-and-coming superstar is a revolutionary product in aesthetic medicine and has gained traction in the Australian market in recent years.

So, what exactly are bio-stimulation dermal fillers and how do they differ from the traditional fillers we’ve come to know and love? Bio-stimulation dermal fillers stimulate the production of collagen in the skin long after the treatment has taken place. This much sought-after effect is achieved using particles known as Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. This means that, instead of relying on hyaluronic acid products to plump up the skin (the way traditional fillers work), bio-stimulation dermal fillers take a more natural approach to skin rejuvenation. Not only can it be used to correct volume deficit in the face, it is also a great treatment for hand rejuvenation. The resultant volume lasts over a year, making this treatment perfect for those of you who want a longer-term result.

Here at ACM, bio stimulation dermal fillers are but one of the many tools in our arsenal to halt the aging process and rejuvenate the skin. We also offer Laser Genesis, skin needling, thread lifts and Factor 4, all of which have volume-enhancing effects.

We know that everyone’s skin and skincare concerns are unique, and a one-treatment-fits-all approach is rarely the right way forward. This is why Dr Targett sits down with you to discuss your skin goals before providing specialist advice on the best treatments for you.

The best defence is a good offence. Say no to premature skin aging – book your consultation with Dr. Targett today on 0403 690 031 and put your skin rejuvenation in the hands of a professional.

How it works

What are bio stimulation dermal fillers made from?

Bio stimulation dermal fillers are made from very small calcium based microspheres which are suspended in a water based gel substance.  Allergy to these microspheres is not a problem because they are made from similar minerals that are found naturally in the body.  It is not necessary to perform allergy testing before administering this product.  The microspheres and gel and absorbed naturally over time by the body, leaving behind only natural collagen.

Why do I need bio stimulation dermal fillers?

The ageing process is affected by many different factors. Factors such as genetics, lifestyle including smoking, diet, and sun exposure all determine how quickly you will age.

The signs of ageing include; loss of facial volume, loss of muscle volume, droopy appearing skin, large pores, hollows in the cheeks and temples, general lines, and wrinkles.  Pigmentation is also another issue with ageing.

From about age twenty upwards we start losing the structural proteins such as collagen, elastin from our skin.

Traditional dermal fillers work by injecting natural hyaluronic acid product into the skin which helps bind water and plump the skin.  This works very well, except that it is only effective for around three months.

Biostimulation dermal fillers work by inducing the production of the body’s own natural collagen thereby having a much longer-term and lasting effect.  This gives biostimulation fillers a great advantage over traditional fillers.

What is the mechanism of action?

  1. Bio Stimulation dermal fillers are made up of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a water-based gel carrier.
  2. After injection, the product not only provides immediate corrections and increased volume to the area treated, but also helps to stimulate the production of natural collagen by the body.
  3. Overtime only the natural collagen will remain since the body will naturally metabolise the CaHA and the gel suspension.

Collagen is an important building block for healthy and youthful appearing skin.  It will give your skin a natural volume as well as ironing our wrinkles to give your skin a smoother and more youthful appearance.

Why should I choose to have bio stimulation dermal fillers?

  2. The results have been clinically proven to last for more than one year.
  3. Patients are known to have high satisfaction from using this product.
  4. It can be mixed with lidocaine a  local anaesthetic to help reduce the pain of the injections.
  5. Produces immediate and long-lasting results to smooth out your wrinkles.

What areas can be treated?

  1. Bio stimulation dermal fillers are great for filling large static lines and folds:
    • Helps to volumise, contour and shape the face
    • Nasolabial folds
    • Chin and cheek augmentation
    • Rejuvenate the hands
    • Marionette lines

What happens during the procedure?

You will usually meet with Dr Targett prior to the procedure for her to discuss with you your suitability for bio stimulation dermal fillers and to discuss the look you are trying to achieve and formulate a treatment plan.

On the day of the procedure, you will be required to sign a consent form detailing any risks no matter how small, associated with the procedure. The first step is to thoroughly cleanse your face.  An anaesthetic cream will then be applied to help ensure that the procedure is as comfortable as it possibly can be for you. Dr Targett will then perform the dermal filler injections according to the treatment plan and the desired look that you are trying to achieve.  This process usually takes around thirty minutes.  You will be asked to come in two weeks after your treatment for Dr Targett to assess the success of the treatment and to make any adjustments if required.

How long will the results last?

Bio stimulation dermal fillers offer a natural and gradual result over time, with collagen production taking roughly 8-12 weeks to fully stimulate—the results of the treatment peak at around six to eight months post-treatment. How long the final outcome lasts will depend on the number of treatments patients undergo. Generally, an entire course of treatments will prolong results to last between 24-36 months.

What should I expect after my treatment?

Immediately following the bio stimulation dermal fillers treatment, you may experience some mild bruising, tenderness, and discomfort around the injection sites, which may take up to three days to dissipate. A cold compress and paracetamol can help mitigate these symptoms. Some individuals may also experience redness, swelling, itching, and numbness, which will dissipate along with other symptoms in a few days.


We advise patients to avoid taking blood-thinning medications and consuming excessive alcohol before and after their treatment for a short period. Post-treatment aftercare instructions also include avoiding prolonged sun exposure, strenuous activity, and wearing makeup for 24 hours. Firmly massaging the treatment area for a few minutes, five times per day for five days following the treatment, is also strongly recommended. This will minimise the chance of adverse effects occurring, such as lumps and bumps, helping to distribute the filler evenly.

Am I a suitable candidate for bio stimulation dermal fillers?

Most individuals are suitable to receive bio stimulation dermal fillers. However, there are some individuals we do not recommend for this treatment, including people who are pregnant or breastfeeding, have taken a course of acne medication in the last three months, have a history of auto-immune diseases, or have a history of severe allergic reactions.

What are the risks associated with bio stimulation fillers?

There are very minimal risks associated with this treatment, but no cosmetic treatment is without the potential for complications or risks to occur. Rare side effects of bio stimulation dermal fillers include blistering, infection, cold sores, allergic reactions, lumpy tissue, and skin necrosis. An in-depth consultation and following your aftercare instructions is crucial to mitigating the potential for more severe risks to occur.
