Revitalize the Foundation for Younger Looking Skin
When it comes to building healthy, younger, flawless-looking skin, collagen is the foundation. Yes, collagen is that important when it comes to skincare. It plays a crucial role in determining the look, feel, and texture of your face. However, as we age, collagen production slows down. And, if you aren’t taking proper care of your skin, collagen could decrease even more rapidly. So, if you feel like your skin looks tired and dull, then it is probably begging for more collagen. The good news? There is a facial that can help rejuvenate the natural collagen synthesis process in your skin. Keep reading to see how you can reclaim your youthful appearance through a facial at Winston Salem Dermatology.
Why is Collagen Important?
Collagen is a protein found in our bodies. It plays a big role in providing structure in our bones, skin, tendons, and ligaments. It is also responsible for skin quality, texture, and elasticity. The skin will naturally create collagen on its own, but as we age, collagen decreases. We also put our skin through harmful sun rays, stress, and pollution. All these factors will harm the level of collagen in our bodies and cause it to dimmish even quicker. The end result? The lack of collagen causes our skin to become dull, lifeless, dry, and wrinkled. So, if you want to get back that youthful, healthy glow, then it’s time to boost your collagen.
How Does a Collagen Facial Work?
Restore your collagen and start seeing younger skin with the collagen facial. This treatment is designed to flood the derma with collagen to help accelerate cell renewal. Exfoliation, cleansing, and massage techniques during the facial will help the collagen go deep into the skin. During the facial, the cells will be stimulated to produce more collagen. From deep in the skin, the new collagen will rise to the top to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles.
What Happens During a Collagen Facial?
A Collagen Facial is a relaxing process that produces big results. Here are the steps involved for younger-looking skin:
1. Skin Analysis and Cleansing
The first step to a collagen facial is to determine what type of skin you have. The aesthetician will then choose the products that are appropriate for your skin type and begin cleaning the face. The cleansing happens in two parts; first, there’s an oily textured pre-cleanse, followed by the relevant designated cleanser.
Next is the relaxing steam part of the facial that helps soften up blackheads and whiteheads that will be extracted. If you have very sensitive skin, this part of the facial may be skipped.
A product that will exfoliate will be added to your face to gently rub away the surface of dead skin cells. Exfoliation will naturally improve the collagen synthesis rate of the skin as well as help enhance the absorbance of the products that will be applied next.
This next step could hurt a little, depending on your pain tolerance. This is the step where blackheads and whiteheads will be removed. If your skin is thin or ruddy, this could be a bit uncomfortable.
5. Facial Massage
This is the most important part of the facial that will help boost collagen. Your aesthetician will use a collagen-based massage cream to relax and stimulate your skin facial muscles. This will help the collagen molecules go deeper into the skin.
6. Facial Mask
Next, your aesthetician will choose a collagen facial mask that is appropriate for your skin type depending on if your skin is dry, oily, combination, sensitive, or mature. The mask will be applied and will stay on your face for about 15 minutes.
7. Final Application
The last step is a collagen nourishing cream that has sunscreen in it. The cream will be rubbed into the skin to help keep the effects of the facial intact.
