Collagen Level by Age and Procedures That Stimulates Collagen

What is Collagen?

One of the most vital components of your body is collagen. It functions as a glue, joining tissues and cells to keep the body’s form and structure together.

Cell structures deteriorate as we get older and natural collagen production starts to slow down. In addition to ligaments losing their flexibility and joints becoming stiffer, skin ages and sags.

This article will go into greater detail about collagen, how it functions, and how to restore it in your body at any age.

Collagen Level Infographic

How much collagen do we lose as we age?

Collagen loss has an impact on how you feel and appear. The following are the initial indicators that you’re losing collagen in your body:

Natural Fullness is Lost

While the under-eye area develops hollows, the cheeks get flatter. These are most likely indications of collagen loss unless you’ve just undergone a significant weight loss.

Drooping Skin

Since collagen maintains skin elasticity, once it starts to decline, so does your skin’s firmness. Your stomach, buttocks, cheeks, and jawline may all sag as a result.

Fine lines and wrinkles

Wrinkles and fine lines start to show up as a result of the loss of collagen, which also causes the skin to become dehydrated and thin.

Dull Hair

Hair starts to thin and loses its once-healthy appearance. Also possible is hair loss. Hair may start to split and break when collagen levels start to drop.

Sculptra is an injectable substance that reduces the visibility of your wrinkles. The target area’s collagen levels are raised by this product.

An FDA-approved injectable procedure called Sculptra Aesthetic replaces the collagen you lose as you age. The injection contains poly-L-lactic acid, which adds volume and stimulates your body’s natural collagen production in the deep layers of your skin.

For those who suffer from acne, the IPL photofacial is advantageous because it could help reduce large pores. Rosacea sufferers are also excellent candidates for this treatment since it may lessen or diffuse skin redness. Small, noticeable blood vessels on the face may be repaired with the help of foto facials. Consider photofacial as a potential treatment option for people who have pigmentation issues or sun spots.

The fotofacial stimulates the growth of collagen and can result in plumper, more youthful skin, making it a fantastic therapy for anyone who wants to improve the texture of their skin. The technique is particularly well-liked because it is comparatively painless.

A fractional skin treatment called Morpheus8 is intended to promote the generation of collagen and resurface the skin. To reveal a fresh, radiant appearance, it targets the skin’s deeper layers. Morpheus8 aids in remodeling fat, promoting the formation of new collagen, and tightening existing collagen and elastin. Anywhere on the body that requires a radiance boost through resurfacing can apply Morpheus8. The following areas receive the most treatment:

The face, particularly the cheek, mouth, or eye region, is where Thermi Smooth is most frequently used. All skin types or tones can use the device without the risk of hyperpigmentation or scarring, which is a common side effect.

A non-invasive radiofrequency procedure called the ThermiSmooth® Face reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin on the face. This procedure targets and warms the facial tissue to elicit a healing response and boost collagen formation. A rise in collagen results in skin that is firmer and tighter.

By applying thermal laser energy to the targeted location, SculpSure uses laser heat technology to dissolve fat. Your body naturally expels the melted fat, leaving the area taut and firm. The heating power of the SculpSure laser also encourages the development of collagen and elastin in the treated areas. This promotes the formation of healthy, young tissue, making the treated area not only slimmer but also more attractive. The use of suction is not necessary with this laser either.
