It happens to all of us sooner or later. You look in the mirror and notice your skin is looser, thinner, and maybe you have a few more wrinkles than before. Why? It all comes down to collagen loss. Collagen is one of the primary skin-tightening substances that give your skin elasticity and firmness. It’s what helps your skin snap back into place whenever you stretch it out with your muscles. The only problem with this miraculous substance is that it is limited. Collagen loss starts to occur significantly after the age of 20 and only gets worse from there.
Why Does Collagen Loss Happen?
Before we talk about what we can do about your skin losing collagen, it’s essential to understand that collagen loss is simply a factor of age. Your environment (sun, pollution, oxidants, and diet) can also accelerate collagen loss. While we can’t necessarily prevent lost collagen, we can do things to slow it down or restore it. Our range of treatment options can slow down and stimulate new collagen production to help you regain your youthful glow naturally.
What are the Results of Lost Collagen?
Collagen loss shows itself in the skin that is more wrinkled, thinner, and less hydrated. There is no health issue associated with this cosmetic concern, but it makes you look unmistakably older, which is why so many people seek ways to restore lost collagen or at least simulate the appearance of more collagen.
What Can We Do About Collagen Loss?
We can address lost collagen in the skin with many procedures, including fillers, lasers, and injectables, to name a few. Many fillers are concentrations of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that the body also produces, which can mimic the effects of collagen, giving lips, cheeks, and related areas more volume and hydration for a plumper, younger appearance. At Aspen Aesthetics + Pharmacy, we offer you a personalized treatment plan to restore a naturally youthful appearance. We educate you on each option, some of which are listed below:
- BOTOX® Cosmetic
- Secret™ PRO
- Laser Genesis
