Our skin is subjected to all types of damage every day, leading to the appearance of a worn and aged complexion. There are numerous factors that impact the aging process and understanding those factors is the first step to slowing them down. Once aging symptoms do appear, there are also treatment options designed to reverse those symptoms and give the skin a refreshed, more youthful appearance.
The Importance of Collagen
Collagen is a substance produced by the body to support the underlying skin structure and give skin its smooth, supple appearance. Over time, our bodies produce less collagen, which leads to skin laxity and the appearance of facial creases. There are also factors that can accelerate the breakdown of collagen, including:
● Deficiencies in important nutrients like vitamin C
● UV rays from the sun
● Nicotine from cigarettes
● Environmental pollution
If loss of collagen is the primary cause of skin aging, replenishing collagen is the most effective way to reverse signs of aging and restore a youthful appearance. At Incredible Veins Skin & Body, we offer a number of non-surgical procedures to stimulate collagen production for natural, beautiful results.
Anti-Aging Treatment Options
These treatments have been shown to stimulate collagen production and reverse signs of aging:
Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Lasers can be used to target tissue below the skin’s surface, stimulating collagen production without damaging outer skin layers. There are different types of laser treatments, allowing us to customize your procedure to your unique needs and desired outcome. Laser procedures are typically performed in a series of treatment sessions to achieve full results.
This revolutionary procedure uses tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin. The process triggers the body’s own healing process, including the production of additional collagen to repair the skin. Microneedling is a relatively quick procedure with little discomfort or downtime. Some patients may need more than one treatment sessions to obtain desired results.
Most injectable fillers use synthetic formulations to support the underlying skin structure, smoothing away lines and wrinkles from the inside out. However, some of the new solutions also stimulate collagen production, providing longer-lasting results as the body assists with the anti-aging process. Consult with Dr. Ebrahimi or our Nurse Practitioner, Tabitha, about injectable options that are right for you.
