Product company Vida Aesthetics has launched collagen booster Nithya to aesthetic clinics nationwide.
A truly unique form of pain-less anti-ageing treatment, Nithya is the first skin rejuvenation injectable made from equine-sourced protein available in the UK.
This revolutionary new skin plumping treatment is designed to holistically improve the production of new collagen, helping to ease fine lines around the eyes, improve facial volume in areas such as the cheeks, and can even improve the appearance of the décolletage.
The revitalising protein, which is derived from the tendons of horses, is a first for UK aesthetic clinics keen to offer a more natural-looking anti-ageing option. Results are long-lasting, and unlike wrinkle reduction treatments like Botox which paralyse the muscles and dermal fillers which can leave the face looking over-filled, Nithya works in harmony with your natural tissue structure.
Plumper, firmer looking skin without potentially harmful chemicals
After reaching the age of 25, we lose up to 1.5% of collagen from our skin each year thereafter. The resulting appearance of wrinkles and hollow-looking cheeks – due to the loss of our natural collagen – can be mitigated by replenishing it.
And this can now be achieved through treatment with Nithya; an injectable product containing protein sourced from horses which is designed for the regeneration and reconstruction of tissues.
Ideal for use as an anti-ageing and volume correction treatment, this is a Class III medical device. During the non-surgical treatment – which costs from £250 – the heterologous Type I collagen powder is mixed with water before being injected into areas of the face such as the cheeks and under eye. A topical gel is applied before hand to ensure patient comfort throughout.
Nithya is clinically proven to stimulate the production of new fibroblasts post-treatment to create native Type III collagen; a process that is fundamental in cosmetic medicine and anti-ageing treatments. It has been found to be specifically effective in post-menopausal women who have seen their collagen production slow down quickly.
Cosmetic nurse and skin specialist Miss. Bianca Estelle from BEA Skin Clinic was one of the first aesthetic professionals to trial the collagen booster and said:
“I have been using Nithya in my clinic for a few months now and the results are already impressive. It’s great we can offer this in combination with anti-wrinkle treatments such as fillers, or as a skin rejuvenation and volume restoring treatment of its own.”
Eddy Emilio, Director of Vida Aesthetics, who is pioneering the unique equine protein treatment in the UK says the launch of Nithya is already proving popular with his clients.
“This exceptional collagen-boosting product is proven to be safe, has had no reported side effects, is hypoallergenic and gives excellent results. We truly believe this could rival the results of established but overused anti-ageing cosmetic treatments,” he said.
“This is the only commercially available Type I collagen intended for aesthetic use in the country, and we’re already getting rave reviews from cosmetic doctors thanks to its excellent results and numerous areas it can improve the appearance of. The idea of using protein sourced from horses may seem quirky, but we’re certain this is the future of anti-ageing!”
Collagen boosting treatments using Nithya will be available for men and women in clinics nationwide from September 1st 2016 and start from £250. Results last 6-12 months.
