If you’re wondering why collagen supplements have gained so much acclaim in the past few years, there’s a very important reason for it — collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and is a vital component of connective tissues. It plays a crucial role in maintaining the structure, strength and elasticity of various tissues, including skin, bones, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and blood vessels.
The desire to increase collagen levels is attributed to the loss of collagen we will all eventually experience with age, which can lead to wrinkles and reduced skin elasticity. Collagen is a major building block in the body for keeping your skin looking healthy, strong and youthful.
In addition to oral supplements, there are plenty of advanced skin rejuvenation treatments designed to stimulate new, vibrant collagen production over time that we proudly offer at CNY Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery, including:
Using high-energy broadband light (BBL), BBL HERO photofacials stimulate your skin’s natural healing response to generate new collagen and elastin growth. Production of new collagen helps restore volume under the skin, softening fine lines and wrinkles and diminishing other common signs of aging. What’s so amazing about photofacials is that your benefits will continue to build in the weeks and months following your treatments as new collagen is gradually generated.
A gentle approach to radiant skin, Moxi laser skin resurfacing creates thousands of fractionated treatment zones in the skin to stimulate a natural healing response and spur vibrant new collagen and elastin. With Moxi, you can achieve a wide range of complexion improvements, including smoother texture, more even tone and a renewed, youthful glow.
Also known as collagen induction therapy, we would be remiss not to mention microneedling. By creating tiny microchannels in the skin, microneedling prompts your skin’s natural healing process to trigger new collagen and elastin growth. The result is more radiant skin with diminished fine lines and wrinkles, minimized scars and more balanced tone and texture.
The secret to glowy, plump skin that defies your age isn’t a secret, it’s collagen! Learn more about how you can improve your collagen production to achieve healthier, more youthful skin by calling (315) 545-5452 or requesting a consultation online today.
