We all want a youthful, soft, glowing complexion, right? Well, the good news is that it’s never too late to turn back the time on aging skin! There’s a powerful protein that can help you diminish fine lines and wrinkles to get back that youthful appearance – its collagen.
Collagen is the foundation for healthy, hydrated skin, and we can help you make more of it with a relaxing facial! A collagen facial will exfoliate and nourish your skin while increasing circulation to help increase collagen production. So, you’ll leave your office with fresh, glowing skin. Think it sounds too good to be true? We promise it’s not! Keep reading to find what exactly a collage facial is and why you need it.
What Exactly is Collagen?
Do you know what is the difference between the skin you had as a child and the skin you have now? Its collagen. Collagen is a protein in the skin that keeps our skin tight, soft, elastic, and wrinkle-free. This protein actually makes up 75-80% of your skin, so you can imagine it plays a huge role in the way our skin looks.
Why Collagen is Important for Your Skin?
You know how your skin creases when you squint, smile, or frown? That skin usually snaps back into place when you’re finished making that expression, right? Well, not if you’re older. That’s because as we age, you’ll notice those creases turn into permanent wrinkles. The reason? Your skin isn’t as elastic as it was once because you don’t have enough collagen. Our bodies actually produce 1% lesser collagen each year. So, the older we get, the less collagen we have. That’s when you start to see saggy skin and more fine lines and wrinkles.
This is where we can help you get that youthful glow back and fill in those fine lines and wrinkles by helping to stimulate more collagen in your face.
How Do We Lose Collagen?
Aging is the biggest collagen thief. Our bodies are just made to produce less collagen as we age. But sometimes, it can happen even sooner. Women who go through menopause usually see about a 30% loss of collagen in the first five years. After they’ve completed menopause, they continue to lose about 2% every year.
But aging isn’t the only collagen culprit. We know that too much sun isn’t good for our skin because it can cause skin cancer, age spots, and a long list of other problems. Another item to add to that list is that too much sun also causes you to lose collagen quicker. If you’re not protecting your skin with sunscreen or protective clothing, then you’re letting your skin soak up harmful UV rays that can quickly contribute to those fine lines and sagging skin.
Smoking is another reason your collagen supply could be depleting. How? Well, smoking can lead to changes in blood supply to your skin, which also leads to wrinkles.
How Does a Collagen Facial Work?
If you’re tired of dealing with dull, saggy skin, you can turn things around with a collagen facial. And the best part? It’s safe for all skin types.
This facial is designed to rejuvenate the natural collagen synthesis process. It also unclogs pores, deep cleans, exfoliates, increases circulation, and nourishes the skin to stimulate collagen. All it takes is this relaxing treatment to leave your skin looking and feeling younger.
Here’s how it works:
1. Skin analysis and cleaning
Your dermatologist will examine your face and choose the products that are appropriate for your skin type. Then they will begin to cleanse the skin.
Next, your face will be steamed to help soften up blackheads and whiteheads that will be removed.
Exfoliating the skin will remove dead skin cells and help the products absorb into your skin better.
During this step, your blackheads and whiteheads will be removed. Some people find this uncomfortable, but it all depends on your pain tolerance.
5. Facial massage
This is a super important step to the facial. The massage will help collagen molecules go deeper into the skin to boost production.
6. Facial mask
A facial mask based on your skin type will be applied for about 15 minutes.
7. Collagen Cream
This is the final step to your facial. During this step, a collagen nourishing cream will be rubbed into your skin. It has sunscreen in it to help protect the effects of the facial.
This entire process will cause the newly created collage to rise to the top and smooth out your skin’s texture.
What is in a Collagen Facial?
The main ingredients in a collagen facial are Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid. These ingredients are effective in helping to naturally boost the skin.
Other ingredients included in the facial are Vitamin E and A, aloe vera, shea butter, collagen, avocado oil, sea salt, jojoba oil, and green tea extract.
It’s important to know what this facial is made up of because you’ll need to let your cosmetic skincare professional know if you have any allergies to the ingredients.
Collagen Facial Benefits
Of course, the biggest benefit to a collagen laser facial is that it will help you look younger. That means you’ll notice your fine lines and wrinkles will diminish. But that’s not all these facials can do. Here are some more beauty benefits of a collagen facial:
- Reduce the appearance of scars
- Shrink large pores
- Diminish acne scars
- Tighten sagging skin
- Reduce brown age spots
- Diminish sunspots
- Instantly have softer, brighter, and more radiant skin
Of course, just like any other cosmetic skincare procedure, you’ll want to incorporate this facial into your regular maintenance regime to see the ultimate results.
