Have you seen the massive range of collagen supplements in the health and hygiene aisle of your local departmental store, each claiming to do wonders for you? Well, collagen is indeed a key component responsible for:
- Improving your skin elasticity and keeping it hydrated
- Strengthening your hair and nails
- Preventing loss of bone mass
- Increasing muscle mass
Unfortunately, the natural collagen production in your body tends to decline with time.
Fortunately, The Couture Surgeon has amazing facial treatments that can replenish your natural collagen reserves and keep your skin vibrant and youthful.
Read on to know more about them.
What Is Collagen And How Does It Affect Your Skin?
Collagen is one of the most abundant structural proteins in your skin. The cross-linked network of collagen and elastin is what gives your skin its structure, firmness, elasticity and texture.
Moreover, collagen can help retain moisture (i.e. up to 1000 times its weight), keeping your skin hydrated from within.
Basically, collagen and elastin keep your skin looking fresh, glowing, smooth, supple and youthful before you hit your 30’s – because that’s when the natural production of collagen starts to decline.
What Causes Collagen Production To Decline?
Common factors that can diminish your skin’s collagen production include:
- Exposure to UV rays
- Excessive sugar intake
- Hormonal imbalance due to chronic stress
4 Amazing Collagen and Elastin Boosting Facial Treatments At The Couture Surgeon
1. Gold Micro Infusion Facial
This one of a kind facial can make your skin smooth, supple and glowing almost instantly. The treatment involves a special hand-held device with numerous microneedles, all plated with 24 karat gold to avoid skin irritation and discomfort.
A gold micro infusion facial stimulates collagen production by making hundreds of micro injuries/microchannels in your skin and infusing micro quantities of a special cocktail containing Botox, hyaluronic acid fillers, and other skin rejuvenating ingredients directly into its deeper layers.
2. Deep Chemical Peels
A deep chemical peel can help correct common skin concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and uneven skin tone and texture. Moreover, it stimulates collagen production by penetrating into the deeper layers of your skin along with promoting the turnover of new skin cells.
3. Microneedling With Or Without PRP
Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin resurfacing and rejuvenating treatment that uses hundreds of tiny sterilized needles to make micro injuries on your skin. As a result, it triggers your body’s natural healing response that stimulates collagen production.
Microneedling can be combined with another revolutionary facial treatment called PRP therapy. During the treatment, a sample of your blood is drawn to derive Platelet-Rich Plasma from it. The extracted serum contains growth factors, stem cells, and all the nutrients required to revive and rejuvenate your skin from within.
4. Laser Skin Treatments (CO2, YAG, and IPL)
Last but not the least, advanced laser resurfacing treatments use controlled and precise energy waves that can penetrate relatively deeper into the skin without damaging the outer layer. This triggers your body’s natural healing mechanism that stimulates collagen production and can help:
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Improve skin elasticity
- Shrink large pores
- Firm up your skin
- Help fade blemishes, age spots, and hyperpigmentation
If you’re looking to enhance your skin’s natural firmness, elasticity, texture, and radiance, these 4 facial treatments can be your go-to option.
