5 Reasons Why You Should Try Treatments that Produce Collagen

5 Reasons Why You Should Try Treatments that Produce Collagen

Did you know that you have more collagen proteins in your body than any other kind of protein? That's because collagen is a heavy hitter, helping take care of many body parts—including your skin!

Collagen works with elastin and other proteins to promote new skin cell growth and the turnover of your top layer of skin. As you age, your collagen levels naturally decline, causing many of the visible signs of aging, like:

At Wrinkle Fairy with locations in Chicago, Oakbrook, Arlington Heights, and Naperville, Illinois, skin expert Leslie Forrester, APRN, and the team harness the power of collagen by using aesthetic treatments that trigger your body’s natural production of the important protein.

Keep reading to learn our top five reasons you should try therapies that produce collagen! 

1. Reverse the visible signs of aging

One of the top reasons people turn to aesthetic treatments that stimulate collagen production is the way they reverse the visible signs of aging — in a way that looks natural, NOT like you’ve had “work done.” 

When your collagen levels decline, the visible signs of aging, like fine lines, wrinkles, and crepey skin, become more noticeable. Treatments like microneedling with PRP therapy or PDO thread lifts, stimulate your body’s collagen production, triggering your natural healing response. 

This process reverses the signs of aging in the weeks and months following your treatment, helping you achieve a refreshed, younger appearance, naturally!

2. Improve skin elasticity 

Collagen gives your skin much-needed structural support, keeping it supple, firm, and plump. When collagen levels decline as we age, our skin loses this elasticity, causing it to become lax and saggy. 

Treatments that trigger collagen production, like laser therapies and facial fillers, help restore the skin's elasticity and firmness, since they cause new proteins to form, strengthening the skin's underlying structures and tightening loose skin.

3. Enhance skin tone and texture

In addition to improved elasticity, collagen plays an important role in your skin’s texture and tone. When your collagen levels drop, your skin can become dull, rough, and uneven—adding years to your appearance and taking away your healthy glow. 

By selecting treatments that boost your body’s natural collagen production, the fresh collagen fibers that result help improve your skin’s texture and tone. These new fibers help your skin become more evenly toned, smoother, and softer, giving you a more youthful appearance and a healthier, radiant glow.

4. Minimize the appearance of scars

If old acne marks or other scarring are negatively affecting your confidence and self-esteem, collagen-producing aesthetic treatments can make them fade into the background. This is because the new collagen fibers these treatments trigger are tighter, and the boosted production means more cellular regeneration. The result? Your skin remodels itself with tighter fibers, minimizing the appearance of any scars and irregularities.

5. Little-to-no downtime for long-lasting results

Most treatments that trigger collagen production usually don’t require much, if any, downtime—and little to no pain or discomfort after injection. That means you can get your treatment and go back to your normal routine. 

Yet these therapies provide you with long-lasting results, since the more collagen your body has, the more it continues to make. In other words, you can get your treatment in an hour or less, but experience improved skin for months—sometimes years—to come.
