Did you know that collagen production starts to decline when you are in your mid-20s?! Collagen provides strength and structure within the body and elasticity in the skin. It is an essential component of connective tissue and plays a crucial role in holding the body’s cells together. When collagen starts to decrease, and you add in other factors like menopause, smoking, sugar, and ultraviolet rays, it can sometimes feel like an endless battle to fight it. However, not all hope is lost! From your diet and supplements to the perfect pairing of microneedling and radiofrequency, there are a few good options available to improve collagen production.
Supplements & Diet
To gradually increase collagen levels in your body, try adding in more collagen-producing foods. Some high-collagen foods include bone broth, chicken, and fish. There are even supplements available to increase collagen production. Experts recommend consuming between 2.5 and 15 grams of collagen per day to reap its full benefits.
Microneedling & Radiofrequency
For quick and visible results, try microneedling combined with radiofrequency. This treatment helps stimulate collagen and elastin production by using tiny needles and radiofrequency waves to rejuvenate facial skin. By taking damaged skin and stimulating the growth of healthy new skin, this treatment helps heal things like acne scars and fill in wrinkles. Better yet, this treatment is non-invasive and has minimal downtime.
For optimal results, we typically recommend a series of three treatments. As the body rebuilds collagen, you will see gradual improvements continue over the next few months. You can expect an initial swelling and redness immediately after treatment which subsides after 24-72 hours.
