Collagen Decline

Collagen Decline

Collagen Decline: What is It?

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body, found in bones, muscles, skin, and tendons; it is the substance that holds the body together. Collagen forms a scaffold to provide strength and structure. Endogenous (natural) Collagen is synthesized in the body and has countless important functions. Collagen production declines with age and exposure factors such as smoking and UV light. Fortunately, the growth of collagen, elastin, and melanin can all be stimulated through laser therapy.

In your Complimentary Consult, we will discuss the various ways we can work together to rebuild collagen in your body, naturally. Through this process, we’ll work from the inside out and the outside in to stimulate this vital protein and bring a beautiful glow back to your skin.

What Causes Collagen Decline?

Collagen production declines as we mature, due to age, exposure to UV light, oxidation, intake of tobacco, and excess sugars.

Who Can Experience Collagen Decline?

Everyone will experience collagen decline to some degree. Collagen production declines beginning in our early 20’s and steadily as we mature.

What Are The Most Effective Treatments?

  • We Recommend: 
    • Complexion Rehab
    • Radiance + Refine
    • Radiance + Revive
    • Radiance + Refresh
    • Antioxidants: Vitamin C, Alpha Arbutin, Astaxanthin
    • Regenerative Ingredients: Backuchiol, Vitamin A, E
    • Hydrators: Hyaluronic Acid and Tremella Mushroom
  • The Benefits:
    • Laser Therapies: Nothing can stop the clock, but the cumulative, compounding effects of laser therapies pre-empt and respond to maturing skin are nothing short of reliable; we can turn the clock back and slow it down. Laser creates an ideal incubation environment to repopulate collagen; this gestation period takes about 6 months to develop and it starts at your very first service. Once this baseline of new Collagen is established, collagen-building blocks multiply, volumizing your skin to soften fine lines and wrinkles from your first service and for as long as you remain consistent. In addition to volumizing skin, laser energy enhances cellular turnover (skin efficiency) that slows with age. By stimulating the lively turnover of cells, dead skin is eliminated faster and the radiant glow that’s being generated from within is revealed. 
    • Regenerative Ingredients: Antioxidants and active hydrators can aid in minimizing congestion: Hyaluronic Acid and Tremella Mushroom have been shown to be highly effective hydrators. Antioxidants and regenerative ingredients will enhance skin efficiency, detoxify, and promote an environment in which healthy cellular turnover can occur, shedding and regenerating skin from deep within, supporting the laser-renewal process, so collagen can multiply and thrive.
