How Can I Increase Collagen Production in My Skin?
If you’ve done research on anti-aging, you’ve likely come across the word “collagen.” Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body. It holds your body together, just like glue and can be found in your hair, joints, bones, muscles, and of course, skin.
The more collagen you have in your skin, the younger it’ll look. When you’re young, you have many collagen pillars that stand strong and straight. As you age, however, your collagen production slows down.
In fact, dermatologists have discovered that after you hit 25, you break down more collagen than you make. For this reason, you may notice fine lines and wrinkles and long for the youthful glow you had in your younger years. Aside from the natural process of aging, smoking and spending too much time in the sun can break down collagen fibers and expedite the aging process.
The good news is there are ways you can increase collagen production in your skin. At Baltic Beauty Centre, we recommend two treatments: microneedling and NovaThreads. Fortunately, both treatments are non-invasive and come with minimal to no downtime. Keep reading to learn more about each one.
We offer traditional microneedling as well as microneedling treatments combined with PRP. During a traditional microneedling treatment, we’ll use a special device to penetrate the surface of your skin at various depths. This will prompt collagen production and leave you with a younger-looking appearance.
Microneedling with PRP uses your own platelet-rich plasma or PRP to accelerate the process of healing. It can reduce two of the most common side effects of microneedling, swelling, and redness.
Microneedling & NovaThreads Consultation Available
NovaThreads can lift and contour the sagging tissues on your face so you can look years younger without surgery. During the treatment, we’ll inject a local anesthetic into the area of concern. Then, we’ll insert sutures, which are comprised of biodegradable polydioxanone (PDO).
