Five Collagen Boosting Treatments

You’ve probably heard about collagen and how it can benefit the skin. However some of our patients know that collagen is good, but don’t quite understand what it is and why it is good for great skin health.

In this article we will hopefully provide an explanation to our reader on the benefits of collagen and recommend some collagen boosting treatments to keep your skin glowing.

What is Collagen?

Collagen is a protein that exists within the human body with most concentrations found around the skin, tissue and bones. Collagen is what gives our skin it strength, structure and elasticity. Collagen plays an important part in creating and restoring dead cells. As we age, the body produces less collagen. As a result of this our the structure and elasticity of our skin declines. This where we start to see wrinkles and poor quality skin. Collagen also weakens joint cartilages as we age.

Luckily with innovative treatments, it is possible to re-absorb collagen back into our body.

PreventING Collagen Reduction?

Some lifestyle changes go a long way to help reduce collagen damage and loss. Reducing sugar intake, stopping smoking, reducing exposure to sunlight are factors that can slow down collagen depletion. Maintaining a healthy balanced diet with nutrients such as vitamin c, proline, glycine and copper can help boost and maintain levels.

Are there Treatments Available?

Whilst some people will be taking care of there lifestyle, they may still experience collagen loss due to genetics. Luckily there are a number of collagen boosting treatment available that can help boost collagen for better looking skin.

At Dr Sobia Medispa, we offer a range of collagen boosting treatments. Popular treatments that can boost collagen include the following, which can even be taken to help maintain your skin in the long term.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Facial

Using a concentration of the patients own platelets (using the patients blood) PRP can help plump skin, improve skin tone and texture and reduce scars and wrinkles leaving a beautiful, glowing complexion. It’s a great treatment to boost collagen and it’s also completely natural. PRP is a quick treatment that requires virtually no downtime.

Microneedling & Radiofrequency

Sometimes referred as collagen induction therapy, combining microneedling and radiofrequency targets imperfections of the skin with micro-injuries by micro-needling that triggers the wound healing process, whilst delivering radiofrequency energy. This effective combination produces collagen, creating tighter and youthful looking skin whilst boosting collagen and elastin. A popular treatment that combines both Microneedling and Radiofrequency is Morpheus 8.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Laser resurfacing, deliver’s pulses of energy that penetrate deep within the skin without harming the surrounding tissue. The skin’s natural healing process then rebuilds the treated tissue with new collagen and elastin, improving visible signs of ageing.

Profhilo

Profhilo is an incredible collagen boosting injectable that is injected across the face and neck that hydrates and remodels the skin and produces elastin. It helps retain moisture under the skin that increases collagen. Profhilo contains high levels of hyaluronic acid that helps skin glow!

Thread Lift

A thread lift is a great way to boost collagen around the face, neck and part of the body. Collagen boosting threads are placed under the skin for those patient’s wanting an instant face lift. The threads not only lifts and tightens sagging skin and provides structure, they also induce collagen that help improve skin tone and texture.

There are many treatments available on the market that can help promote collagen. We have only given you a very brief explanation of some of our most popular one that we achieve excellent results from.
