The secret to having radiant, healthy looking skin is no longer a secret. If you’re struggling with dry, wrinkled, and dull skin, it may be caused by a lack of collagen in your skin. There are several treatments proven to increase natural collagen production. The more collagen that is produced, the softer lines and wrinkles become and the more radiant your skin looks and feels.
Collagen: The Secret To Anti-Aging
Collagen is a naturally occurring protein in the body. This incredible protein is responsible for keeping your face and body looking youthful and vibrant. Starting at the age of 20, dermatologists estimate that collagen production decreases by 1% each passing year. Additionally, the cells that are responsible for making collagen, called fibroblasts, become less active.
These five treatments can kickstart the fibroblasts to produce more collagen in the skin.
Silhouette InstaLift is a minimally invasive treatment option that delivers immediate and ongoing results. This incredible treatment improves skin laxity and regenerates collagen production. Excellent for a wide range of candidates, InstaLift is ideal for anyone looking to improve sagging skin in the mid-face. Both immediate lifting and ongoing collagen regeneration can be expected, and natural-looking results continue to be supported by the body’s own collagen growth.
Microneedling is commonly referred to as collagen induction therapy. This treatment works by intentionally producing tiny micro punctures into the top layer of the skin. Using micro-fine needles, the skin then goes into repair mode which boosts new collagen production in the skin. Microneedling can also help to stimulate the growth of fibroblasts. This painless, minimally invasive treatment can provide incredible results that continue to produce over time.
PRP facial treatments reintroduce concentrated plasma to your skin to kickstart healing and fresh cell growth. Both the Vampire Facial® and Vampire Facelift® are treatment options for anyone interested in the rejuvenating properties of platelet rich plasma.
PRP Facial (Vampire Facial)
PRP is applied to the skin through microneedling. This treatment is ideal for overall skin rejuvenation, including improvement to scarring, fine lines and brown spots. This option is more superficial than the facelift.
PRP Facelift (Vampire Facelift)
PRP is combined with a dermal filler and injected into the skin. This treatment is ideal for patients hoping to improve volume loss and add youthful height and curves to their cheeks. The filler adds lift and volume, and the platelet rich plasma helps build collagen scaffolding over time to support new volume.
The HydraFacial is an excellent treatment option to help stimulate collagen production by increasing circulation and blood flow. The HydraFacial is one of our most popular treatments. It uses patented technologies to cleanse, peel and hydrate the skin. Additionally, propriety serums made with high-quality nourishing ingredients create the famous afterglow that the HydraFacial is famous for.
Tribella Facial Resurfacing
Combination treatments are incredibly effective for rejuvenating tired skin. This ultimate treatment combines Intensed Pulsed Laser (IPL), skin tightening and fractional resurfacing to create the Tribella Facial Resurfacing treatment. In one single treatment, discoloration can be corrected, sun damage reduced, enlarged pores are reduced and skin looks and feels firmer and more even. With low downtime of 1 to 3 days, this treatment is ideal for anyone looking for fast and effective results.
Give Your Collagen Production a Boost
All five of these treatments are excellent ways to reduce the rate of collagen loss. The sun is the #1 culprit responsible for damaging fibroblasts and collagen. Because of this, your first line of defense should be to always wear sunscreen with an SPF of 30 every day, even when you’re not in the sun.
