Collagen-Building Wrinkle Treatments
As laser skin technology has advanced, many new ways of using lasers for cosmetic improvements have been designed. Using lasers to develop the growth of collagen (the soft cushion under your skin) can provide you with healthier-looking skin. As your skin fills in with fresh collagen, the wrinkles and fine lines that were beginning to develop are smoothed, reducing the signs of aging.
Lasers used to develop collagen growth, can be targeted to those deeper dermis layers rather than your outer skin surface. Your outer skin layer is protected from the energy of the laser, which means less redness and downtime after your treatment. For collagen building, fractional laser treatments target varied depths while leaving healthy skin in between each laser target. This encourages quick healing. At The K Spa, our laser specialists are highly-trained in the use of all types of laser and light-based treatments. Their laser treatment selection will always be based on what will deliver the best results for you, our patient.
How Improved Collagen Can Benefit Your Skin
Collagen is a type of protein that is integral to healthy skin, hair, muscles and bones. For the skin, it helps the skin to rejuvenate, keeping it firm and soft, replacing old skin cells as needed. As you age, collagen production decreases. Other factors can also decrease collagen, such as sun exposure, smoking and poor diet. As the levels of collagen decrease in your skin, it loses its elasticity. You begin to see a difference in the tone and texture, especially in the form of sagging or wrinkling skin.
The good news is that collagen production can be artificially stimulated. When the skin must repair itself, it creates more collagen. The trick is to not damage the skin but still create the response of repair and collagen production. Laser treatments are one of the ways to do this. Laser therapy targets the deeper layers of the skin without damaging the surface. It can help your skin generate more collagen that can restore elasticity, giving you a more youthful appearance.
Unlike temporary treatments, like some dermal fillers and other cosmetic treatments that hide lines or wrinkles, laser treatments for collagen building are long-lasting. While the results may not be as quick, the impact can help your skin repair and rejuvenate for younger looking skin. Over the weeks and months after laser therapy, the collagen levels increase, and your skin begins to look refreshed.
