Collagen Loss: 1% Each Year Results in Aging Skin

Symptoms

 

It’s no secret that the aging process brings on different issues for the skin. Being proactive with your skincare is essential. Did you know after the age of 30 years, the body decreases production of collagen? It is the essential protein needed to keep the skin moisturized and maintain its elasticity.

Causes

Collagen is the main structural protein found in the skin and the connective tissue. It’s made of of cells located in the middle (dermis) layer of your skin, providing strength, elasticity and vitality.

Collagen is a type of protein abundantly present in the body. It is found in skin, bones, muscles and tendons. At least 30 percent of protein in the body comprises of collagen. It is considered a binding substance which has the ability to support various structures in the body.

Collagen stimulation is achieved by different treatments, including laser and injectable therapies.

How we treat it

Scarlet RF Microneedling

Microneedling has been around since 1995. It is one of the best treatments to stimulate collagen growth. Recently, a new version of this treatment has been designed, Scarlet RF, which covers a broader and deeper penetration of the dermis, and creating a more effective treatment. It boost collagen and elastin production quicker than other forms with no downtime to the procedure. 

 Broadband Light Therapy (BBL)

A BBL laser treatment will revive collagen production and restore volume, simultaneously giving a smoother and fresher appearance to your face. For collagen stimulation, heat is continuously introduced into the skin. This creates a thermal wound which incites a healing response, stimulating cell growth and resulting in the improvement of texture. According to a recent study at Stanford University, BroadBand Light treatment has been shown as a cancer preventative.

Exilis Ultra  

Exlis Ultra is the first non-invasive aesthetic device to simultaneously deliver ultrasound and radio frequency energies for head-to-toe tightening through wrinkle reduction, skin rejuvenation and body shaping.

This new dual-technology uses thermal energy to stimulate and strengthen the collagen network within your body.

Sculptra Aesthetic

Sculptra Aesthetic or poly-L-lactic acid (PPLA) is a facial injectable that adds volume to correct shallow to deep nasolabial folds (smile lines) and other facial wrinkles.

It is injected but unlike other dermal fillers where some of the initial volume diminishes, the ingredient PPLA remains in the body to stimulate growth of your own natural collagen, sometimes as long as two years.

I have been going to Mad Peaches for over 5 years now, bouncing in between various treatments like exilis, pro fractional and SculpSure. All of the ladies seem very knowledgeable of the science behind each procedure and have me walking out feeling better and confident after each visit!! (View more of our Yelp Reviews)
