What Are Biostimulators?
Volume loss and wrinkles occur naturally during the aging process. Biostimulators are injectable fillers that work by stimulating the body's natural growth of collagen and elastin. Aesthetic nurse practitioner Catherine Curtin uses the biostimulators of Sculptra®, a poly-L-lactic acid dermal filler that allows for longer-lasting volume in the cheeks, and RADIESSE®, a calcium hydroxylapatite filler that treats mild to moderate wrinkles on the face and volume loss in the hands. In addition to increasing the fullness of the mid-face, Sculptra can reduce the look of shallow to deep dynamic lines. Both RADIESSE and Sculptra can be combined, depending on your cosmetic goals. Call Beauty & Fly Aesthetic Wellness in Bronxville or Bridgehampton, NY to set up an appointment, and find out how biostimulators can rejuvenate your face.
What Are the Benefits of Biostimulators?

Am I A Good Candidate for Biostimulators?
Men and women who are in good health and concerned about mild to moderate wrinkles and lines and volume loss in the mid-face are ideal candidates for biostimulator treatments with RADIESSE or Sculptra. It can improve smile lines, marionette lines, chin wrinkles, pre-jowl folds, and fine lines that form in the sides of the mouth. RADIESSE is also safe to address age-related volume loss in the hands to help them appear fuller and more youthful. You should not receive this injection if you have an allergy to lidocaine or other ingredients in the injectables. Make sure to talk to Catherine Curtin if you have any allergies (severe or not) and any medical conditions or disorders. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, might be pregnant, or are trying to conceive in the next several years, you probably shouldn't get biostimulator treatments.
How Do Biostimulator Injections Work?
Following your consultation to determine your unique treatment plan, you will receive your RADIESSE or Sculptra injections in one of our private procedure rooms at Beauty & Fly Aesthetic Wellness. To begin the biostimulator procedure, you will lay comfortably while the injection sites are cleaned and marked. Most patients feel tolerable discomfort throughout the procedure at the initial prick, but if requested, a numbing agent can be applied to the treatment sites. The dosage of RADIESSE or Sculptra, selected at your personalized treatment planning session, will be prepared in an ultra-fine syringe. The marked site of injection will help the injector to carefully administer RADIESSE or Sculptra into the face. As soon as the procedure is done, a compress may be applied to minimize bruising and swelling.
What Can I Expect from Biostimulators?
After your biostimulator injections, you may experience mild redness, swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site that should resolve naturally in several days. To speed healing, you may apply a cold compress to the injected areas. You should limit sun exposure as much as possible after your appointment and always use sunscreen. Most patients will notice visible improvements right after their treatment with final results developing after a few months, as the increased production of collagen strengthens the complexion. Your face will appear younger, softer, and lifted. If Sculptra is performed in a series over 3 – 4 months, your results can last up to two years. RADIESSE also lasts around 1 – 2 years.

As I am gearing up for my wedding in September, I came in for a first time botox treatment and Catherine was so patient, kind and knowledgeable.

I cannot speak more highly of Catherine and her practice! She has a welcoming and professional presence and a “bed side manner” that is rarely seen these days.

Are Sculptra injections safe?
Sculptra is approved by the FDA and has been used around the world safely since the late 1990s. Side effects are usually mild and temporary, but some patients experience minor pain, bruising, swelling, and/or redness. Occasionally, a bump may develop when pressure is put on the injected area. Call our Bronxville or Bridgehampton, NY office if you experience any abnormal or lasting side effects.
What is the best age to receive Sculptra?
A dermal filler like Sculptra may be a good choice to soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It can be used to correct chin wrinkles, lines surrounding the mouth, and nasolabial folds. On average, patients start to get Sculptra around their late 30s to early 50s; however, it is also common for patients younger and older than this range to receive injections.
How does RADIESSE compare to other fillers?
Injectable wrinkle fillers each have different formulas and properties to help with various concerns. Common filler ingredients include hyaluronic acid (HA), calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHa), poly-L-lactic acid, and polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA). RADIESSE is composed of calcium-based microspheres, which are similar to hyaluronic acid wrinkle fillers due to their natural ability to increase collagen production. During your initial consultation, your injector at Beauty & Fly Aesthetic Wellness will discuss the various fillers and assess your facial volume and tone to help you decide which one is best for you.
Is the treatment with biostimulators painful?
Discomfort during biostimulation treatments is generally minimal and well-tolerated by most patients. Topical numbing cream or local anesthesia may be applied before the procedure to minimize any discomfort from the injections. Some patients may experience temporary redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites, which typically resolve within a few days.
How long do the results of biostimulator treatments last?
The duration of results from biostimulator treatments varies depending on factors such as the type of biostimulator used, the treatment area, and individual factors such as skin type and lifestyle habits. Generally, results can last from 1 – 2 years or longer, with maintenance treatments recommended to sustain the desired improvements in skin quality over time.
Can biostimulator treatments be combined with other aesthetic procedures?
Yes, biostimulator treatments can be combined with other aesthetic procedures such as dermal fillers, neuromodulators (e.g., BOTOX®), or skin care treatments to achieve comprehensive facial rejuvenation and enhancement. Your provider can recommend a customized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and goals, which may include a combination of treatments for optimal results.
