Collagen is a crucial protein that occurs naturally in the body — in fact, it makes up about 30% of your body’s protein, keeping your joints healthy and contributing to skin elasticity. Unfortunately, as we age, we see a steady decline in collagen production, which can lead to signs of aging like skin laxity, fine lines and wrinkles and loss of volume. That’s where we come in! Here at Chesapeake Vein Center and MedSpa, we offer a variety of treatments that help you renew your skin and boost collagen production for naturally youthful results.
Let’s dive into our top treatments for rebuilding collagen:
Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling stimulates collagen production by creating tiny treatment channels in the skin to prompt the body’s natural healing response. As your skin heals, your collagen is replenished, improving firmness and texture while addressing skin concerns like fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars and stretch marks. Since microneedling is minimally invasive, there’s little, if any, downtime. You can expect to see initial improvements within one week of treatment, with optimal results appearing in six to eight weeks. Depending on your unique skin care needs and goals, you may choose to undergo a series of treatments to achieve your desired results.
Not only does microdermabrasion create a perfect canvas for further aesthetic treatments, but it can also jumpstart your skin’s collagen production to restore a glowing, youthful complexion while treating dullness, pore size and uneven texture. During treatment, the diamond-tip wand is used to exfoliate the outermost layer of skin cells, removing dead skin and debris for an immediately smoother, brighter appearance. Although only the superficial layers of skin are targeted, studies have shown that microdermabrasion can help renew the deeper layers of the dermis by increasing both collagen and elastin. Results are visible immediately following treatment, with continued improvements as your skin renews itself.
Effortlessly improve the tone and texture of your skin while enhancing collagen production with the help of BBL photofacial! BBL, which stands for broadband light, is a non-invasive treatment method that uses light energy to revitalize the skin while precisely targeting pigmented or damaged cells. This light energy gently heats the outer layers of skin, stimulating new collagen growth within the skin and addressing concerns like redness, rosacea, fine lines, age spots and sunspots. In just a few days after treatment, you’ll notice some initial improvements, with optimal results appearing in the weeks and months following as your collagen continues to regrow. While significant results can be seen after just one treatment, we recommend a series of three to five photofacials spaced at least four weeks apart for best results.
