Collagen is essential for smooth, flawless skin. Unfortunately, our collagen-levels can begin to deplete as early as our mid-30s. The good news is, you can effectively “trick” your body into producing more of its own natural collagen. If you’re bothered by fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, or sun-damaged skin, it might be time to think about boosting your skin’s health with collagen-inducing treatments.
Image Surgical Arts offers several non-surgical options for men and women that would like to naturally increase collagen production in their skin. Depending on your individual needs and goals, you may be well suited for one or more of the following treatment options.
#1: Vivace RF Microneedling with PRP
Vivace is an advanced microneedling device that’s ideal for addressing your individual concerns while also providing total rejuvenation. The minimally-invasive procedure is safe and effective for nearly any skin type, texture, or tone. There is little to no downtime involved, and patients can see a significant improvement in their skin’s overall health after just one session.
Vivace combines the long-lasting benefits of microneedling with Radiofrequency (RF) technology and PRP for enhanced results. Microneedling triggers the body’s natural self-healing processes, which signal the production of skin-nourishing collagen and elastin. RF wavelengths effectively tighten the skin for deep dermal rejuvenation. Finally, PRP is applied topically, allowing much-needed platelets, stem cells, and other growth factors to penetrate to the lower layers of skin.
#2: Skin Resurfacing
Non-surgical skin resurfacing can be beneficial for patients that are dealing with scars, sun-damaged skin, hyperpigmentation, and poor overall skin quality. Treatments are highly personalized according to each patients’ individual concerns and goals. At Image Surgical Arts, we offer a more extensive and aggressive approach to resurfacing with the Erbium laser.
Skin resurfacing can help increase your skin’s long-term collagen supply. Dull, damaged skin is gently exfoliated one layer at a time until desired results are achieved. Visible improvement to the skin’s overall texture and tone can be seen in several weeks with more severe concerns gradually fading over the course of several months.
#3: PRP Treatments
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatments are a zero-downtime treatment option for increasing collagen levels. Treatments can be done in as little as 30-minutes to an hour and require minimal downtime. PRP injections contain growth and healing properties that promote increased cellular turnover and collagen production.
