You can’t ignore that collagen is the key to firm, wrinkle-free skin. Unfortunately, years of sun damage deteriorates the amount of collagen you have. To compound the problem, your body slowly decreases collagen production over time, leading to fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity.
Since Vanish Skin Clinic & Beauty Bar specializes in anti-aging treatments and skin care, we have all the secrets you need to learn how to stimulate collagen production.
Skincare products to stimulate collagen production
Don’t be fooled by collagen creams. The idea seems nice; all you have to do is rub some collagen onto your face and you’re on your way to aging gracefully. If only it were that easy.
Think about it this way: Collagen fibers are large (in microscopic terms), complex braided structures. Therefore, a cream could include all the pure collagen molecules it wants, but those molecules are too big to penetrate the outer layer of tissue. And if they can’t even reach the outer layers, they definitely aren’t reaching the dermis, which is where all the magic happens.
Note: Not all collagen creams are formulated with pure collagen molecules. Some use collagen peptides instead, which are small enough to reach the dermis.
On the other hand, there are creams made with ingredients that boost collagen production rather than claiming to add collagen to your tissue. For example, creams and moisturizers made with ingredients like retinoids, peptides, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants improve the health of your skin by reversing sun damage, increasing moisture, and maintaining the collagen fibers you have.
Professional treatments to stimulate collagen production
Aesthetic treatments are a great way to notice drastic changes in your skin, especially when it comes to collagen stimulation. One of our favorites: microneedling.
Microneedling, often referred to as collagen induction therapy, uses dozens of tiny needles to create microchannels within the skin. These microchannels then trigger the body’s natural healing process. During that process, fibroblast cells increase collagen production to rebuild “damaged” skin from the treatment. Revamped collagen strengthens your skin’s framework to help reverse signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots, and more.
One of the biggest benefits of microneedling is that it is a lot less invasive than laser treatments and doesn’t make your skin more sensitive to the sun. As a result, it acts as a great summer alternative to laser treatment that will help you maintain your youthful glow.
