The science behind collagen stimulators
Collagen stimulators are a type of aesthetic treatment sometimes used to replace skin structural support lost due to ageing.
What happens with skin collagen as we age?
Collagen is a key structural component of healthy skin. As we age, collagen production decreases in our bodies. Facial ageing begins in our twenties, when we start losing about one percent of the collagen in our skin per year. This is when the formation of wrinkles may become apparent.
Skin firmness decreases as a result of both internal factors (genetics and natural ageing) and external factors (sun exposure, smoking, stress, etc.). Visible effects of the loss of collagen include loose and saggy skin, shallow to deep wrinkles and folds and loss of skin volume.
Reinvigoration of your skin’s own collagen production
Collagen stimulators contain microparticles of a synthetic, biodegradable, biocompatible polymer. Collagen for ageing skin results in an increase in skin thickness and a reduction of facial wrinkles.
Stimulate the body’s ability to produce collagen
Bring volume and firmness to areas of the face
Renew skin thickness and firmness
Benefits of a scientific approach
We live in a remarkable age. Medical science is advancing at a rapid rate, providing solutions to a wide variety of health concerns and challenges. Aesthetic science is part of this global wave of progress. On-going research and product development means that individuals seeking to address the signs of ageing or genetic deficiencies now have a broad range of treatment options.
