Treatment using collagen stimulators
Collagen stimulators are prescription-only medicines that must be administered by registered healthcare practitioners. If you are unsure whether a particular practitioner is registered in Australia, you can check the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency website. It is recommended that you prepare for your first consultation by thinking through any questions you may have about the treatment and the outcomes. The below Q&A section may be of help.
How to find a qualified healthcare practitioner
Christoph Martschin, a dermatologist from Sweden, gives his advice on how to find a qualified healthcare practitioner.
Collagen stimulators activate the skin’s ability to produce collagen, restoring the skin’s structure and renewing firmness. They increase skin volume and firmness and reduce shallow to deep wrinkles and folds.
