Collagen is a key protein in maintaining skin elasticity, volume and moisture for a bright, youthful complexion. As you age, your body starts producing less collagen, causing the skin to become thinner, drier and more lax, as well as allowing lines and wrinkles to form. It’s been found that after the age of 20, the skin produces 1% less collagen each year. Luckily, there are a variety of treatments that allow you to replenish your skin with vibrant new collagen, helping you diminish wrinkles, restore lost volume and retain moisture.
Let’s sink our teeth into our top collagen-boosting treatments:
PRGF – ENDORET®
A more advanced and more concentrated iteration of PRP, plasma rich in growth factors (PRGF) is the latest addition to our extensive catalog of aesthetic services! PRGF contains powerful healing properties and growth factors taken from your very own blood that, when applied to the skin, stimulate dramatic revitalization from deep within, spurring new collagen production naturally. PRGF is perfect for targeting skin concerns like sun damage, pore size, texture and tone, lines and wrinkles, dullness and acne scars. By releasing growth factors over time to reestablish collagen and elastin growth, PRGF provides long-term anti-aging benefits that outlast the usual effects of PRP.
For an all-natural way to turn back the hands of time, our collagen stimulators can work wonders! Unlike typical dermal fillers, which inject hyaluronic acid (HA) into the skin to restore lost volume, collagen stimulators work deep within the dermis to prompt collagen production, gradually replenishing the skin for natural, youthful results. We offer two collagen stimulators:
● Sculptra® uses poly-L-lactic acid to trigger new collagen growth, restoring structure and volume to the skin while improving the appearance of nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Most patients see optimal results after three treatments spaced one month apart as the body replaces lost collagen. Results can last up to two years.
● Radiesse® is uniquely formulated with calcium-based microspheres to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles while prompting new collagen growth and correcting the skin’s structure. Ideal for treating smile lines, marionette lines, pre-jowl folds, chin wrinkles and more, Radiesse offers immediate results that last up to one year.
Achieve smoother, softer skin effortlessly with the help of microneedling, a minimally invasive, intensely rejuvenating treatment. Microneedling uses small, sterilized needles to create microchannels at a specific depth within the skin, triggering the body’s natural healing response and regenerating collagen. The result is brighter, smoother skin along with stunning improvements to concerns like lines and wrinkles, acne scars, textural irregularities and enlarged pores. Safe and effective for almost all skin types, microneedling provides gradual improvements in the weeks and months following treatment. Best of all, there’s no downtime, so you can jump right back into your daily routine without missing a beat!
