It’s a known fact that collagen is the cornerstone of firm, healthy skin. However, with age, it starts to naturally break down within the body. Not to mention the fact that things like a poor diet, the environment, smoking, sun exposure, and a lack of hydration contribute to collagen degradation.

Collagen is important for healthy skin all over the body. It provides skin with structure, thickness, and pliability. I have broken down into three areas, the best means of boosting Collagen levels in your skin.

How to Boost Collagen for Better Skin

1. Using Liquid Peptide Serums

Although the molecular size of collagen itself is too large to work its way deep within the skin to make a difference.  Products with Retinol, Peptides, and growth factors like Medik8 Retinols and Liquid Peptide serums protects the collagen in your skin against UV damage. It also triggers collagen formation and stabilizes the collagen proteins in the skin.

2. Using Supplements

The reason why collagen-boosting supplements are a big business is that they flood the body with the nutrients it needs to jump-start the process of collagen synthesis from the inside out. Like our BESTOW COLLAGEN BOOST; this powder slows down the visible signs of skin ageing. It boosts skin elasticity, plumps out wrinkles, and promotes younger-looking skin.

  • Collagen powder gives your skin a head-start on collagen production.
    The body builds collagen to keep skin plump and supple. The building blocks for making collagen come from your diet. Most people don’t get enough of the nutrients they need to make collagen. This powder boosts your supply of collagen building blocks in a form that is easily used by the skin.

  • Your skin can’t make collagen without zinc. Most people are zinc deficient. Bestow Collagen Boost contains 6gms of zinc per serving, which provides 80% of your RDI.

  • Vitamin C is vital. Your skin needs it to make strong collagen. This powder provides more than double your minimum daily requirement of vitamin C.

3. Using in Clinic Treatments, my favourites are;

MICRONEEDLING

Collagen Induction Therapy; Using tiny needles; Microneedling is the use of tiny needles to penetrate through the skin to induce a wound-healing reaction. This results in hundreds of microchannels created in the skin which increases the delivery of the specialist product and stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin fibers. This increased production of natural fibers within the skin means the treatment works very well at treating scars such as post-acne scarring, stretch marks as well as fine lines and wrinkles. It provides smoother, firmer, more toned skin which lasts up to one year!!

CACI NON-SURGICAL FACIAL LIFT

Microcurrent facials stimulate the collagen and elastin fibers and help to restore the volume you have lost from your face, smoothing out wrinkles in the process. This is particularly useful if you experience drooping of the skin around your eyes, cheeks, and jowls, as this is a key cause of wrinkles.

However, microdermabrasion technology can also reduce premature lines by encouraging new collagen production. This extra collagen fills in the creases in your skin and helps to promote tissue repair, so your skin appears smoother and plumper. By taking out these lines your face will look much fresher, and it will knock years off your appearance.

Our facelift without surgery can achieve youthful, natural-looking results without the need for any downtime. Your skin will look toned and refreshed, with a noticeable reduction in those tell-tale signs of ageing. Sagging, loss of volume, lines, and wrinkles, and reduced muscle tone, can all be treated by our facelift. The condition of your skin will also be improved, so you will look and feel revitalised.

RESURFACING PEELS

There are many options for in-office anti-aging procedures, including a chemical peel. These use hydroxy acids (like glycolic acid) to boost skin cell turnover, which in turn stimulates collagen production. Patients “see immediate benefits” from chemical peels, as they can help with tone, texture, and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
