5 Ways to Boost Your Collagen

The secret to healthy, youthful looking skin should not be a secret!

The secret to beautiful skin is collagen. Did you know that 80% of our skin consists of collagen? And did you know that after the age of 20 we lose around 1% of collagen PER YEAR! That’s 7-10% of collagen every decade! Here are our top 5 tips to stimulate and promote collagen production.

1. Healite LED Light Therapy Our medical grade machine penetrates to 830nm which works on not only on your cellular level for stimulation, but also works on pain & inflammation in muscles and bone. By stimulating the basal cells and creating healthier, stronger and more collagen, this treatment is painless, quick and includes a mini facial too! ⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2. Skin Needling with M.Pen Also known as collagen induction therapy, this treatment is one of our most popular results driven facials. This is the perfect treatment to boost collagen production while improving skin texture. The treatment is performed using 9 tiny disposable needles that puncture the skin at a controlled depth. By causing a controlled “injury” to the skin, the body triggers an increase in collagen and elastin production, resulting in improved skin texture and firmness, as well as a reduction in scars, pore size and stretch marks. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3. Chemical Peels By speeding up and removing the outer layers, this encourages the body to create and turnover the collagen & elastin faster. Completely safe with little to no down time, and a full range of acids to use, your skin will feel smooth and plump! Our favourite peel at the moment is Latic Acid! Pure hydration and great for resurfacing! ⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 4. IPL Intense Pulse Light increases collagen by 44% every time! By heating up the tissue and cells, this creates stimulating effects to promote and encourage collagen. Pain free and no downtime, this is a Classic Favourite! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 5. Active Skincare! Of course, we love to see you in the skin salon, but you need to maintain your skin health daily! Ask us!
