The beauty of a collagen stimulator in the form of a dermal filler
Instant yet long-lasting results
This revolutionary product was the winner of the Frost & Sullivan 2011 European Technology Innovation of the Year Award in Dermal Fillers.
What is highly unique about this dermal filler is that it acts a biostimulator; it stimulates the creation of your own new collagen.
Its unique “2-in-1 action” does not only correct the wrinkles and folds in your skin, but also promotes production of collagen for a long-lasting, natural result. Therefore, this product gives you the best of both worlds of instant results from dermal fillers and the long-lasting effects of collagen stimulators.

Collagen is one of the important support structures found naturally in our skin, helping to maintain the appropriate tightness, elasticity and suppleness.
It is in your 20s when the firmess of your skin starts to decrease and lines and wrinkles begin to appear. Over the course of time, our skin gradually loses its natural collagen and elastin, leading to facial laxity and the formation of wrinkles and folds.
As an advocate of collagen stimulators, Dr. Amanda Ong also believes in looking at results for the long-term and would educate her clients on the importance of maintaining the skin texture and structure to slow down the ageing process. As collagen stimulators aim to replenish lost collagen with very natural and long-lasting results, this innovative product with its added benefit of being able to immediately correct, shape or contour the face, makes it ideal for clients who want an instant results but also maintain those results long-term.
