Collagen Booster Treatment
The facial skin is made up of three distinct layers: a visible outer layer on the surface called the epidermis, a collagen-rich under layer beneath the surface called the dermis, and an inner layer beneath the dermis called the subcutaneous layer. When the collagen in these three layers breaks down due to sun exposure, family heredity, or the normal ageing process, your skin reduces production of collagen and begins to thin and underline pigment or redness begins to appear on the epidermal layer of the skin.
Naturally, treatments that work on just the surface can’t do anything to restore the collagen in the under layer or the inner layer of your skin. Our Collagen Booster Treatment penetrates all layers of the skin. During the treatment, collagen is stimulated and blood vessels under the top layer of skin constrict, reducing redness and pigmented lesions.
How do we treat it?
We use IPL – Intense Pulsed Light treatment, in some cases followed by a facial peel or CACCI non surgical facelift where your skin specialist may determine that this would produce the best results for you.
The Collagen Booster Treatment works in three different ways:
It targets melanin, so very light pigmentation, sun or age spots may lighten in colour (however please note that this is not a specific de-pigmentation treatment which is a further service we can provide.)
Secondly it targets unsightly broken thread veins that can appear over the face with age.
Lastly it has an anti-ageing effect. It leaves all skin types looking tighter, firmer and smoother by stimulating the fibroblasts that create collagen. As we grow older these fibroblasts diminish and the collagen becomes ‘mushy’ in texture resulting in wrinkles. Therefore the Skin Rejuvenation treatment, after stimulating the collagen, gives an amazing overall treatment that tightens the skin and decreases very fine lines. It smooths the skin’s texture and decreases pore size. Both the face and body can be treated.
