Collagen Rebuilding: The Options for You


Collagen Rebuilding: The Best Options for You 

Having ample amount of collagen is the key to looking smooth and supple, with a youthful fullness and glow. 


And yes, collagen is something many of us take for granted, until we start to lose it. The loss of collagen is a natural part of aging. It begins to dissipate, along with fat and muscle, in our early 30s. The slowing of collagen production leads to less elasticity in our skin and an inevitable hollowing, sagging and wrinkling, especially on the face, neck and hands.

Collagen Rebuilding Program

Diminishing collagen doesn’t mean you have to give into the ravages of aging. IYAC’s collagen rebuilding program offers several options for restoring youthful fullness, including PROFHILO®, a stabilized form of injectable hyaluronic acid to firm the skin and reverse the signs of aging by bio-remodeling.


Certain non-hyaluronic injectable fillers can also tighten skin and fill in contours by stimulating your body to produce more collagen. Many patients like these fillers as they are metabolized quickly and rely on your own body to naturally tighten your skin. 


Non-surgical ultrasound, known widely as High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU), is another collagen stimulator, penetrating deep skin layers with heat energy. Ultrasound can lift and tone loose skin as well as minimize fine lines and wrinkles, and can treat the eyebrows, cheeks, lower jaw/jowls, chin, neck and décolletage.


Collagen Rebuilding Services Pros Cons


PROFHILO® is bioactive and integrates with the skin to kickstart production of 4 different types of collagen and elastin, bio-remodeling the skin. It is an alternative anti-aging option for those in their 30s to prevent skin laxity and is useful in reversing signs of more extensive aging for older patients. Nicely complements other anti-aging treatments. Results are not immediate.

S$1520 for a single syringe
(1 syringe treats either the face or neck)

Injectable Fillers
SCULPTRA is an FDA-approved filler containing poly-L-lactic acid. It is a liquid (not a gel) so you do not see same-day results, but rather results start to appear about a month after your initial treatment. Most people need several sessions to achieve their desired look.

Less expensive than Ellansé.
Results from three sessions, scheduled 1 month apart, can last up 2 years.

Do not see same-day results, as it's a liquid. From S$1200- S$1300 single session.
ELLANSE is an HSA-approved filler that provides same-day results with the same longevity of results as Sculptra. It’s a gel, so once injected it fills in lost volume. Over the course of three months, the filler is metabolized by the body. During this time, components of the filler stimulate the skin to produce more collagen to maintain the volumized look. Most people need only one session for results that are long-lasting; 1 to 2 years. Visible same-day results, as it's a gel. From S$1500 (1 syringe) single session
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound
ULTHERAPY is a widely-used US FDA-cleared German brand of High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) produced by Merz Aesthetics. There is no down-time after procedure. It’s an “uplift” not a “facelift.” S$1,500 - S$4,000
ULTRA SKIN is an HSA-approved High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) treatment that works similarly to Ultherapy. HIFU is offered at a lower price than Ultherapy and patients report it is more comfortable. It’s an “uplift” not a “facelift.”

S$1200 - S$3,200
