Did you know that seventy percent of our skin is made from collagen?
Collagen is the main component of the dermis layer that gives our skin elasticity, flexibility and a youthful appearance. Beginning at age 20, our body’s production of collagen begins to decline. By the time we’re 60 years old, we have half as much collagen as we did at age twenty-one. Plus, exposure to UV rays, poor diet, smoking, and pollution furthers the depletion of collagen. Declining collagen production is what leads to wrinkles, dryness and saggy skin.
The good news is that you can trigger collagen production, lessen the signs of aging and avoid more invasive surgical procedures with advanced skin technology.
Here’s eight of our favorite collagen boosting treatments.
HALO™ Hybrid Fractional Laser
This is the most scientifically advanced treatment to take years off your face with minimal downtime. This highly effective laser produces dramatic results in overall tone, texture discoloration, fine lines, pore size, and radiance. Initial results are visible within four to five days and continue to improve over three weeks. This is followed by a skin rejuvenation phase that continues to improve for months.
BBL™ Forever Young
Light energy is precisely delivered to specific targets in your skin with this treatment. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas stimulates collagen and skin cell regeneration for a more youthful appearance with visible improvements in skin elasticity, firmness, tone, and texture. It’s very effective at treating age spots, sun damage, redness, rosacea, small veins, acne, and fine lines.
This treatment firms, tightens and lifts sagging skin with the power of light. SkinTyte uses advanced infrared light to deeply heat your skin while cooling and protecting the entire treated surface. Light energy is delivered in rapid, gentle pulses to initiate the body’s natural healing process, which leads to the appearance of increased skin firmness.
Skinpen™ is a micro-needling device used to create controlled micro-injuries to stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process. It’s extremely effective in significantly improving the appearance of facial acne scars and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles to restore a more radiant, youthful appearance.
SCARLET RF WITH PRP
Scarlet RF is a brand-new technology that uses radio frequency rather than a laser to build up collagen, tighten up the skin, refine texture and improve dermal volume. The Medical Spa enhances this treatment with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for what some have called the miracle facelift. Results are seen in just one treatment. No surgery and no downtime.
Injectable Dermal Fillers
Soft tissue injectables are perfect for filling in facial wrinkles, diminishing the appearance of fine lines and restoring facial volume in cheeks and lips. Results are immediate and may last up to 12 months.
TNS Essential Serum®
This revolutionary all-in-one skin rejuvenating treatment offers an unprecedented combination of 380 patented growth factors, antioxidants, soluble collagen, matrix proteins to reduce wrinkles and enhance skin texture and tone. Initial results are visible in 30 days with optimal results occurring in 90 days.
