Don’t Let Age Catch Up to You – Add Collagen to Your Skincare Regime
Collagen. We often discuss it and know it’s a beauty essential, but no one is really sure what collagen really is. Is it a sugar, a protein? How does collagen play such a significant part in the field of skincare? Do we create collagen on our own? Does it come from our supplements? Diet? Absolutely everyone talks about it in the beauty industry and everyone is obsessed with it. We pour money into serums and moisturizers because they claim to contain collagen. Is it worth it? What does collagen actually do for us?
Stay with us, because we’re about to give you some really good insight into the questions you and everyone else have probably been wondering about. Along with Beautique options that can help you bring back that youthful supple skin once more!
Collagen 101: First, what is it?
Collagen is by far the most abundant protein in the body. Its fiber-like structure is used to form connective tissue. This tissue connects other tissues and makes up a large part of bone, skin, muscles, tendons, and cartilage. The tissue helps to make tissues strong and durable, allowing them to tolerate stretching. In other words, it’s the structure that makes up your skin. When there’s an abundant amount of collagen your skin is tight, smooth, and plump! Now, you know it’s made and found in our body, and like everything else it eventually decreases. What can I say? It’s called aging, guys!
The Age When Collagen Production Decreases, What Causes it and What to Do About It
At about our mid-to-late 20s is when we start to see collagen production start to dwindle. So, how do we stop it? Well, as we mentioned earlier… you’re aging. It’s the natural human process However, recognizing common factors of collagen loss in the body may be able to slow down the process. Such factors include sun exposure (a good SPF application every day can make a difference), smoking, alcohol intake, lack of sleep, lack of exercise, and poor diet.
Taking these factors into consideration may help you slow that process down in conjunction with treatments/products. There are a variety of methods for encouraging collagen production at the Beautique Medical Spa. Here we’ll look into a few treatment options.
Beautique Medical Spa Offers Eight Solutions to Stimulate Collagen Your Collagen Production
1. PDO THREAD LIFT is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment designed to contract fat and your skin to produce an instant lift, resulting in tightening of the skin and inducing collagen production. During your treatment, you will be numbed to keep you comfortable. After the numbing agent has started to work, our practitioner will use fine needles to insert the PDO thread into the designated layer of skin. The threads will act as anchors that help lift the skin and voila! Skin texture is improved, fine lines and wrinkles can be lessened, and beautiful youthful skin is in full effect.

2. MICRONEEDLING also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is known to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, scarring, hyperpigmentation, and large pores. Our handheld device will create minute injuries or channels deep in the skin while stimulating natural healing. The body then rebuilds the skin with implanted collagen and elastin, resulting in healthier, smoother, and uniform skin.

3. MICRONEEDLING + PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP) can significantly enhance your collagen and elastin production. During your treatment, a small amount of blood is drawn from you and centrifuged. The PRP that results from that is injected into specific areas of the skin, acting as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow, and regenerate tissue, and thus acts to naturally smooth and tighten the skin. Enhance your microneedling treatments with PRP for that extra “oomph”.

4. SKIN TIGHTENING WITH 3DEEP is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive treatment used to reduce wrinkles, tighten skin, treat cellulite, and contour the body. Radiofrequency energy is sent to multiple layers of the skin simultaneously, which stimulates the body’s natural collagen. Because it is all done through topical application of radio waves – there is no downtime involved. You can come in, see the experts at Beautique Medical Spa, and be back out the door in less than an hour!
