Collagen Loss: 1% Each Year Results in Aging Skin



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 the production of collagen? It is the essential protein needed to keep the skin moisturized and maintain its elasticity.



Collagen is the main structural protein found in the skin and the connective tissue. It’s made 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 that 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 creates a more effective treatment. It boosts collagen and elastin production quicker than other forms with no downtime to the procedure.

ProFractional Laser

This laser puts small holes into the skin to break up pigmentation. It can be thought of as aerating your skin, which allows the melanin to escape from the vessel. ProFractional is typically used in conjunction with hydroquinone for the span of the treatments. This is an ideal option for patients with melasma or scars.


A popular service offered at Mad Peaches, micro-needling yields great results in minimizing pores, refining texture of the skin, lightening pigmentation and reducing tissue scarring. 12 tiny needles use pin-point punctures which induce greater collagen growth, resulting in a smoother, more glowing complexion. A series of 3-6 treatments is recommended and is ideal for any skin type.

VI Peel Advanced

VI Peel Advanced is formulated to combat the signs of aging. VI Peel Advanced is made from a synergistic blend of ingredients, which provides a deeper penetration to soften fine lines and wrinkles. This targeted formula helps enhance collagen stimulation to increase cell turnover and promote a decrease in the loss of elasticity.  

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  

Exilis 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.

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)
