Collagen Boosting Biostimulators

Do you know what celebrities do to achieve and maintain their enviable youthful and beautiful appearance? At Empire Medical Training, not only do we know but we are sharing these specialized, high demand procedures with you in our new hands-on training program! And, we provide instruction in proprietary techniques that can be found no other place by here at Empire.

Aesthetics is now at a turning point with techniques so effective and specific that we can use specialized biostimulating dermal fillers, along with PDO Threads and other products synthesized from your own blood, to target areas and boost collagen production to restore a youthful appearance in a more natural way.

With Empire’s Collagen-Boosting Facial Fillers Program®, you will learn how to use Hyperdilute Calcium Hydroxylapatite (Radiesse©) and Sculptra™ (Poly-L-Lactic Acid) along with a combination of other Biostimulators, PDO Threads, and Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) to produce extraordinary facial cosmetic enhancements, such as treating shallow to deep nasolabial fold depressions and other facial wrinkles with long-term collagen formation with results lasting up to two years, and with a low side effect, risk profile.

Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) is used in its traditional dilution to create the immediate filling effect in specific areas, including the Cheek, Nasolabial fold, Jawline, Nose. And now top Aesthetics specialists, trained in the proper techniques and applications, are using these products in a hyperdilute preparation, hyperdiluted CaHA, to create additional cosmetic enhancements.

Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLA) was first introduced in 2004 for the treatment of facial lipoatrophy associated with HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) patients. The brand name “Sculptra Aesthetic” received FDA approval in 2009 as a volumizer for soft tissues for aesthetic conditions. Sculptra Aesthetic is used when bone volume loss and facial ligament laxity is indicated and is well known for its collagen producing effects. Utilizing hyper-diluted Sculptra safely allows for large facial areas to be treated and enhanced without the risk of side effects associated with normal Sculptra injections.

This new combination modality is most effective for collagen biostimulation creating more collagen and elastin (an underlying cause of aging), tightening skin, overall facial rejuvenation, acne scars, and other skin irregularities.

The result is a younger looking face with tighter, healthier looking skin and a more defined, contoured jawline. These treatments have been used in Europe for many years but have only recently been discovered in the United States, and now are widely used and performed by top U.S. Aesthetics specialists.

Calcium Hydroxylapatite (Radiesse©) received FDA approval in 2006 for treatment of deep depressions in the nasolabial folds. More recently it has been shown to be effective as a biostimulator for collagen production. Cell regenerating fillers such as Calcium Hydroxylapatite (Radiesse©) are now known to stimulate your body’s cells to produce more Type 1 Collagen, which is the component responsible for having firm and youthful looking skin. Unfortunately, we lose this kind of collagen (Type 1) as we age, losing more than half of this collagen when we are in our 50s.

It has been recently discovered that Calcium Hydroxylapatite and Poly-L-Lactic Acid has cell boosting capabilities as a bio stimulating filler. It has always been used to replace volume in the face but only recently have Aesthetics Physicians become more innovative and are now using hyper-dilute Calcium Hydroxylapatite and Poly-L-Lactic Acid for stimulating collagen.

Collagen Boosting Biostimulators - Course Overview

Collagen Boosting Biostimulators

Hyper-dilute Calcium Hydroxylapatite (Radiesse©), Sculptra™ (Poly-L-Lactic Acid) and other biostimulators are a significant breakthrough in Aesthetics because of the significant immediate and long-term benefits that can be achieved for your patients (including a favorable safety profile) due to the extraordinary effects achieved with collagen production.

When combined with other biostimulators, PDO Threads, and Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) the results are dramatic and highly sought after by discerning patients who have researched the technology and understand its usage and benefits.

When these collagen boosting medications are hyper-diluted and injected into the neck and other areas using cannulas, it creates immediate and long-lasting results by correcting crepey skin and stimulating collagen production for long-term effects.

Patients can expect to see tighter skin, a more defined and chiseled jawline, as well as other cosmetic enhancements including enhancing lip and smile lines and treating the “mottled” looking chin.

Hyperdilute Calcium Hydroxylapatite, Poly-L-Lactic Acid, and Solid Filler Smooth PDO Threads are the newest modalities you can add to your armamentarium of Aesthetics procedures. These products, when combined with microneedling and PRP, produce a significant facial enhancement for your patients because you are treating the underlying tissues as well as the skin surface. Biostimulators combined with PDO threads replace lost collagen and provide results that can last up to two years!

Empire Medical Training’s Collagen-Boosting Facial Fillers Program® 2021 is looking better and better thanks to superb Aesthetics training from Empire Medical Training expert physician educators who know the latest treatments and proprietary modalities for bringing new youthful luster to a discerning Zoom-savvy patient.

Learning to inject Hyperdilute Calcium Hydroxylapatite (Radiesse©) and Sculptra™ (Poly-L-Lactic Acid) requires specialized knowledge in the technique as well as understanding the different dilutions, and how to process your patient evaluation. The Empire Medical Training course provides training not only in the hyperdilute biostimulators, but also how to combine this procedure with other modalities that with achieve the maximum benefits for your patients.

Hyperdilute Calcium Hydroxylapatite (Radiesse©) and Sculptra™ (Poly-L-Lactic Acid) coupled with PDO Threads (a solid filler) are the most effective biostimulators for maximum collagen and elastin production. Empire Medical Training is proud to work with our celebrity Physician trainers. Spearheading this program is W. Christopher Croley, MD, Empire’s Director of Aesthetics. Beyond sharing his in-depth knowledge of the technique using correct protocols and methodology, participants will benefit from learning his specialized proprietary methods that deliver the greatest results for his patients in his Aesthetics Medicine practice.

Many of these trainers have developed proprietary methods for using these specialized techniques such as by adding PRF (platelet rich fibrin) to the biostimulators in a specific manner. During this program you will learn their highly successful proprietary “formulations” as well as methodologies so you can integrate this new procedure into your Aesthetics practice.
