Increase Collagen and Tighten Your Skin with Ultherapy
When looking in the mirror, you may start to notice signs of skin aging such as wrinkles, fine lines and dull skin. Although you can’t prevent the aging process, you can help remedy it and slow it down through supplements, products and treatments that boost collagen production in your skin.
We’re going to break down what collagen is, how it functions, and why it’s important – and then get into some treatment options with special focus on Ultherapy. This ultrasound treatment reverses the effects of aging by stimulating your skin’s production of collagen to improve the health and beauty of your skin.
What is collagen and why is it important?
Collagen is a protein found throughout the body that provides structure to your skin, bones and teeth. As we age, our skin loses volume because our bodies stop naturally producing collagen. The loss of collagen causes our skin to sag, loosen and develop wrinkles, lines and creases.
Collagen slows down facial aging while hydrating and strengthening the skin. Besides the many skin benefits, collagen prevents bone loss and promotes muscle, joint and heart health.
Can you rebuild collagen in skin?
Collagen regeneration is dependent upon age and lifestyle. Once we reach our 20s, collagen regeneration decreases and over time our bodies produce less and less. In order to naturally improve collagen growth, avoid unhealthy foods that are processed or contain high amounts of sugar, as these break down collagen in the body. Smoking and sun exposure also damage collagen regeneration.
If you want to naturally increase your collagen production, eat healthy, protect your skin from the sun and take collagen supplements. For faster, better and more effective results, talk to your dermatologist about treatment and procedure options that improve collagen production.
What collagen-boosting procedures are best?
The laser center at Columbus Aesthetic and Plastic Surgery offers SkinTyte and ProFractional treatments to help rejuvenate your skin. But one treatment option in particular has been extremely effective in building collagen and producing natural results.
Ultherapy is a great option for anyone looking to rejuvenate their appearance. It’s often used to lift or smooth lines and wrinkles on the face and neck, and requires zero downtime. Ultherapy is a quick and easy treatment option that could be right for you!
What are the benefits of Ultherapy?
Ultherapy doesn’t require the use of creams, fillers or toxins, it simply uses energy to naturally stimulate the rejuvenation process. The use of sound energy allows it to reach deeper than any other non-invasive cosmetic device and as a result, it can accomplish far more impressive results than other treatments and products alone. Ultherapy is U.S. FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, on the eyebrow and under the chin as well as to improve lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
