Know everything about Collagen Treatments that will help fight Ageing

By Skin & Hair Academy  |   August 25, 2016
The most significant protein in our bodies, collagen is found in our muscles, bones, skin and tendons. Lending our skin the much-needed elasticity and strength, collagen also works towards replacing dead skin cells [1]. However, with increasing age, collagen’s production in the body decreases, and so, you need to pay extra attention to replenish your skin with it.
Now that it has been established just how important collagen is for the body, here’s an insight into the various collagen treatments for skin you can opt for to combat those wrinkles, fine lines and other age spots.
 
Collagen Treatments that Reverse Ageing
 
1. Laser Skin Resurfacing
What it is: An effective treatment for acne spots, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, laser skin resurfacing is the latest collagen boosting treatment on the beauty block[2].
Method: The treatment incorporates the use of a laser beam, broken up into multiple small microbeams that target specific areas. Upon targeting, the laser boosts the production of collagen.
 
2. Invasive/Non-invasive Collagen Treatment
What it is: The invasive/non-invasive collagen treatments are topical methods that restore the naturally occurring proteins in the skin via facial masks or injections [2]. Both the procedures result in reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving younger-looking skin.
Method: While the invasive method involves injecting collagen directly into the face to fill in wrinkles, the non-invasive treatment is nothing but a facial or a face mask to boost collagen production in the skin.
 
3. LED Photo Modulation
What it is: One of the less harmful methods to fight skin ageing, LED Photo Modulation incorporates the usage of low-intensity light-emitting diodes to promote the production of collagen in the skin. It suppresses the enzymes that are responsible for collagen breakdown, and is compatible with all skin types [2].
Method: LED Photo Modulation involves an LED device that’s directly applied to the area to be treated. The method is completely painless, and takes merely five minutes. However, to see optimum results, six-to-eight sittings are required.
 
Natural Sources of Collagen
Apart from the treatments, you could also opt for natural sources of collagen alongside that could help reverse the signs of ageing. Consume fruits rich in Vitamin C and E, such as oranges, lemons and strawberries that not only stimulate the production of collagen, but have zero side effects on the skin [3]. Furthermore, you could also consume foods rich in Omega-3 fatty acids such as fish, soy and nuts.
Last, but not the least, book an appointment with your dermatologist for consultation before you opt for any of the afore-mentioned treatments.
