Facial rejuvenation with collagen-stimulating injections is an effective and no downtime treatment option to naturally reverse the signs of ageing. Over time, facial ageing leads to the following changes:

  • bone loss leads to a lack of structural support. This leaves the face with an aged and skeletal appearance;
  • shrinking and sagging of the facial fat resulting in a heavy and saggy appearance, particularly around the smile lines, jowls and neck;
  • thinning and sagging of the skin, with a loss of youthful elasticity and suppleness.

Collagen stimulating injections can effectively reverse the signs of ageing by restoring volume and stimulating the body to procedure more collagen. It is through this action that collagen stimulating injections can be used for the prevention of ageing.

Best collagen injections in Melbourne

If you are after a natural rejuvenation that restores volume and tightens skin, with only a few small injections, then collagen stimulating injections with a specialised dermal filler done by Dr. Aaron may be the answer.

A natural rejuvenation of the face and neck is now possible without surgery.

Dr. Aaron is one of only a few doctors in Australia who provides training to other doctors in the use of collagen stimulating injections. What’s more, as your body produces collagen in response to the collagen filler injections, your results will improve over 6 months, rather than start to wear off like traditional dermal fillers.

Collagen stimulating filler injections

With age, all of us experience the following:

  • bone loss, leaving us with no structural support;
  • fat loss, leaving us looking hollow and deflated;
  • skin laxity, leaving us looking saggy and with deep folds and wrinkles;
  • collagen loss, leading to a lack of integration of the different components of the face, meaning they no longer support each other as they did when we were younger.

Collagen is the glue that holds our face together, and keeps us looking great. Unfortunately, many clinics offer treatments that either promise collagen restoration and don’t deliver (giving only a very short lived change).

What are collagen stimulating injections?

Collagen stimulating injections are a special type of dermal filler that also stimulate the body to produce collagen. Of the many types available, Dr. Aaron prefers to use one with a great ability to restore volume (much like a traditional dermal filler), that has a stable effect over at least 12 months, and that stimulates the production of type 1 collagen.

Where can you inject collagen-stimulating fillers?


Adding volume and collagen to the temples helps to lift and support the mid and lower face, winding back the clock. Collagen is nature’s volumizer and the key source of skin strength. By expertly injecting into the temples, Dr Aaron can reshape the face, and slow down the appearance of ageing.


Cheek volume loss is one of the earliest signs of ageing. Restoring combined volume and collagen can rejuvenate the face, and wipe years off your appearance. Collagen builds up over time, leading to a progressive and gradual improvement in your results.


A small or aged chin is a common cause for concern regarding one’s appearance. The older we get, the more bone and fat, and therefore volume we lose. By restoring both volume and collagen, the chin can be augmented, and natural structure and strength restored, giving a natural chin augmentation, without the need for invasive and expensive surgery.


A lack of jawline definition or the loss of structural support with time can cause you to look older. By injecting collagen stimulating filler in targeted locations, Dr Aaron can not only add volume to provide balance and structure but also restore collagen to give a natural strength to the tissue, that will improve in the months following your treatment. This is a popular treatment for both men and women, and Dr Aaron is experienced in treating both.


Sagging jowls can be treated using expertly placed Collagen Stimulating injections. They can be disguised by injecting filler in front of them or lifted by injecting filler along the jawline and in other areas of the face, such as the cheeks and temples.

Combining this treatment with a Thread Lift and Skin Tightening often gets far superior results.

Lines Around the Nose and Mouth

The nasolabial folds (Lines from the corner of the nose to the mouth) and marionette lines (Lines from the corner of the mouth to the jawline) can be softened and reinforced with Collagen Simulating injections. This can help you look refreshed and rejuvenated, with almost no discomfort, and no downtime.


Aged hands are a significantly under-treated area in Cosmetic Medicine and are often a giveaway as to someone’s age. By restoring both volume and collagen with Collagen Stimulating Injections, Dr Aaron can rejuvenate the hands by giving them a plumper and softer appearance.


Collagen stimulating injections can effectively improve skin quality and thickness. With age-associated collagen loss, skin becomes thin, and tired or dull in appearance. Collagen Stimulating injections can reverse this, without changing the volume of the treated area. This can be combined with Skin Tightening for even better results. The face, neck, décolletage and hands can be treated.


Men can benefit from this treatment, as it provides a very natural volumising effect that gradually improves over time. This means we can effectively under-treat, meaning others are less likely to know you’ve had anything done.

What parts of the face cannot be treated with collagen-stimulating fillers?

Collagen stimulating filler injections cannot be used in certain parts of the face, as they can cause prolonged swelling and lumps. There are also areas of the face that we do not want excess collagen to form. These mainly include delicate facial structures. Stimulating collagen in these areas may cause problems with future treatments, or collagenomas (fine lumps of collagen), that can be felt and seen, and that cannot be reversed.

The areas that cannot be treated with collagen-stimulating injections are:

  • the tear troughs, although under eye hollows can be improved with collagen-stimulating injections by treating areas around the hollowing;
  • the lips;
  • the nose.

If you have noticed that you are looking older and want to take action, collagen stimulating filler injections are a powerful and effective way to naturally rejuvenate your face, improve your skin quality, look fresher and age gracefully without surgery. In less than 20 minutes, collagen stimulating filler can be injected into the areas of concern to improve the shape and contour of your face, improve your skin, and boost collagen levels. Results are natural, and progressive, improving over three to six months after your treatment. Collagen stimulating injections are best for people over the age of 35 who are patient, and value long term benefits of their treatment. Having collagen stimulating injections every few years can help to replenish lost volume and restore collagen levels. This effectively slows the ageing process, and naturally reverses changes that have occurred as you have aged.

Dr. Aaron is experienced in the use of collagen stimulating injections. With practices in Melbourne, he has helped countless people look their best, age gracefully and feel confident. Experience matters when it comes to achieving the best results with collagen stimulating filler injections.

How much do collagen injections cost in Melbourne?

The cost of collagen stimulating injections starts from $950. The total cost of your facial rejuvenation with collagen injections will depend on the following:

  • your age: older people generally need more product;
  • how much volume and collagen you have lost;
  • what result you want;
  • the areas treated, and the complexity of the areas.

Collagen stimulating injections are best combined with other powerful anti ageing treatments to achieve a comprehensive, yet natural result. Some great treatments to consider alongside collagen stimulating injections are anti wrinkle treatment and radiofrequency skin needling. Lifting threads may also help to slow down the ageing process and boost collagen levels.

Collagen stimulating injections vs. dermal fillers

Collagen stimulating injections have similarities, and they also have differences. It is important that you understand the difference between the two to ensure that you can make an informed decision about which treatment option is right for you.

Collagen stimulating injections:

  • volumising product that gives immediate results;
  • adds structural support and volume improving your definition, and helping you to look rejuvenated;
  • stimulates collagen production using a process that occurs over three to six months. Your results will continue to improve over this time.
  • lasts anywhere from 1-5 years, depending on the product used. Collagen can last many years longer.
  • natural results when done properly;
  • cannot be used directly under the eyes, in the lips or the nose;
  • fillers are broken down by the body, but cannot be reversed.

Dermal fillers:

  • volumising gel with immediate results;
  • product adds support under the skin, helping you to look defined and fresh;
  • results lasting 12-24 months on average, although new evidence shows that they can last many years;
  • broken down by the body naturally over time;
  • results can be immediately reversed if required;
  • can be used in all areas of the face.

Whether dermal filler or collagen stimulating injections are right for you will depend on your goals, tolerance for risk (collagen stimulating injections are not reversible, but are temporary) and your budget. If you are more looking for safe, simple and short term improvements in your appearance, with results that can be reversed, then dermal fillers are the option.  If you are patient, value progressive and natural results that take time to achieve, and are happy accepting that collagen injections cannot be reversed, then collagen stimulating injections may be preferable.

Age gracefully with the power of collagen

Why collagen stimulating filler is the secret to fighting the signs of ageing

Collagen is a protein that provides the face with structural support, volume, and suppleness. It is the most important building block that keeps you looking young and healthy.

Collagen levels decline with age, leading to wrinkles, soft and sagging skin, and an aged appearance. Restoring collagen is one of the most powerful ways to reverse visible signs of ageing. While there are a number of treatments that can stimulate collagen, collagen-stimulating filler injections are one of the best. Not only do they stimulate the production of collagen, but they also act as a dermal filler. This means that age-related volume loss can be restored, giving you back the contours and definition of your face.

Book your treatment

  • would like natural results that improve over 3-6 months and that can last many years.

Frequently Asked Questions


Should I get collagen stimulating injections?

Collagen stimulating injections are ideal for people who want to improve their appearance, and age gracefully, naturally. When used appropriately, they are a safe and effective way to restore collagen, making the tissue more youthful.

You must be patient after having collagen stimulating injections, as the collagen production process takes 3-6 months. In this time, it is important to not undergo any further significant cosmetic or anti-ageing procedure involving dermal filler injections.

What areas can be treated with collagen-stimulating injections?

Collagen stimulating injections can treat most areas of the face, including:

  • temple hollows;
  • cheek hollowing;
  • forehead flattening;
  • weak and retruded chins;
  • weak and sagging jawline;
  • sagging and aged skin;
  • aged hands with visible tendons and vessels.

Collagen stimulating injections are not used in the tear trough (under eye area), nose or lips, as they can cause persistent swelling in these areas.

How do collagen stimulating injections help the skin?

Collagen loss with age causes the skin to appear tired, dull, soft and saggy. Collagen stimulating injections involve the administration of a biocompatible product that instructs the body to procedure new collagen fibres. This leads to a progressive improvement in the quality of the skin, helping it to look and feel tighter, and more youthful.


What does collagen stimulator treatment involve?

Collagen stimulating injections take between 10 and 30 minutes depending on the areas treated. There is minimal to no discomfort and no downtime.

Occasionally, some people find that they have some mild swelling and tenderness for a few days. This is normal, and resolves quickly on its own.

The results from your collagen stimulating injections may initially be less obvious as the swelling settles. However as the body produces collagen over the first 3-6 months after your treatment, there will be a gradual improvement in your results.

For this reason it is very important to be conservative in your collagen  stimulating treatment to avoid over correction. Accordingly, additional treatments with any filler should not be performed for 3-6 months after your initial treatment, unless a staged approach was planned.

Are collagen stimulating injections painful?

Collagen stimulating injections are administered with tiny needles and are mixed with local anaesthetic. Most people find that there is little to no discomfort with collagen-stimulating injections.


Are collagens stimulating injections safe?

Collagen Stimulating injections have an excellent safety profile and are biocompatible. They are broken down naturally by the body over time. 

Importantly, collagen-stimulating injections are not reversible. Therefore, it is vital that your injector is experienced in the use of collagen stimulating injections.

Dr. Aaron has extensive experience with collagen-stimulating injections and has previously held a role training other doctors in the use of collagen-stimulating fillers.

What are the side effects of collagen stimulating injections?

Side effects are uncommon with collagen-stimulating injections. They include bruising and swelling, and some local discomfort.

Rarely, some people may develop small nodules. These are benign, often not visible (having been noticed when touching the face) and usually resolve on their own.


How long until I see the results of my collagen stimulating injections?

Collagen stimulating injections provide an immediate correction to the volume of the area injected. 

Collagen is produced over a 6 month period, meaning results will improve over this time. 

How long do the results of my collagen stimulating treatment last?

Depending on the product used and area treated, the volumising results of collagen stimulating injections will last 12-24 months. The collagen produced by the body at the treated sites will last for many years.


What should I do before my collagen stimulator treatment?

There are a few steps to take before your Collagen Stimulator treatment to ensure the best outcome, and the lowest risk of side effects. They include:

  • ceasing all anti-inflammatories, aspirin, herbal supplements, fish oil, krill oil, glucosamine and vitamin E 1 week before your treatment (Unless you have been advised to take these by a Medical Practitioner);
  • avoiding alcohol for 2 days before your treatment;
  • avoid wearing makeup to your appointment.

If you do not adhere to the above your treatment may still proceed, but you will have a higher risk of side effects.

What will happen after my collagen stimulating injections?

Following your treatment you will be provided with full aftercare instructions. You will be able to resume most normal activity immediately. You may be temporarily numb around the treatment area due to the effect of the local anaesthetic. There may be discomfort as the anaesthetic wears off.

The most important instructions are the following:

  • apply an ice pack gently for any discomfort and to reduce swelling;
  • do not massage the treated area;
  • avoid major dental treatment for 2 weeks (Clarify with your dentist regarding suitability is you are unsure);
  • avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours;
  • avoid alcohol for 24 hours.

The collagen stimulating injections will take a minimum of 3-6 months to give until you can see the final results.
