Fillers That Encourage Collagen Growth

Over the past few decades, fillers have been used to add volume, reshape the contour of the face, and minimize the appearance of wrinkles. However, the next generation of fillers will work with the body to boost collagen production and deliver longer-lasting, more natural-looking results.

Men and women now have more options than ever before to slow the signs of aging. No longer do they have to go under the knife or schedule endless injections for temporary results. Cell-regenerating fillers will help the body kick start its own natural processes that support younger-looking skin.

What Are Collagen Stimulating Fillers?

Radiesse and Ellansé are two cell regenerating fillers that stimulate the cells to produce more type 1 collagen, which provides the infrastructure for hyaluronic acid and elastin. Loss of type 1 collagen begins in the late 20s and by the time adults hit their 50s, they’ve lost about half of their type 1 collagen stores.

How Do Collagen-Boosting Fillers Work?

Radiesse has been offered for over 10 years in the U.S. and was traditionally used to create and replace volume in the face. However, physicians analyzed the basics of how it works to change the way it is used. For example, diluting Radiesse and using cannulas to inject it into the neck can instantly smooth sagging neck skin while also boosting collagen production to ensure results last longer, even once the filler has dissolved.


When Radiesse is injected into tissue, it can create up to 30 percent more type 1 collagen in the treatment area. The filler also promotes the development of elastin, boosts blood supply, and speeds up cell turnover.

Ellansé is another filler that produces both instant and gradual results. Patients can expect to see increased volume, contouring, and definition immediately after injection. Results are maintained thanks to the production of type 1 collagen which occurs in response to the PolyCaproLactone (PCL) in the filler. The length of the polymer chain in PCL gives Ellansé the ability to achieve results that last one to four years.

The difference between hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm and Restylane, and Radiesse and Ellansé is that the latter fillers stimulate type 1 collagen production and ensure patients are left with naturally fuller lips even after the filler has dissolved.


Who Should Get Cell Regenerating Fillers?

Individuals considering dermal fillers for the first time should try non-regenerative fillers like Juvederm or Restylane to see if they like the results without committing to long-lasting results. If the results appear satisfactory, individuals may consider Radiesse or Ellansé for long-term results.

Where Can Cell Regenerating Fillers Be Injected?

Radiesse and Ellansé may be injected into the lips, marionette lines, jowls, chin, and the hands.

How Much Do These Fillers Cost?

Depending on how many areas are being treated and how much filler is used, injections may cost between $500 and $2000. It’s important to speak to an experienced injector when deciding what type of filler to use and how much. They can offer insights into spacing the injections to achieve maximum results.
