Why Collagen Truly Is The Anti-Ageing Solution

Create elasticity and firmness with dermal fillers

Many of our clients have been asking us about all the fuss about Collagen. Many want to know, “what is collagen?” and “what does collagen do for your skin?”.

The beauty benefits of collagen? As the ageing process begins, and our skin loses its firmness and starts to sag, collagen production becomes key to creating firmer complexion and fewer wrinkles.

Without collagen and elastin, two essential skin strengthening proteins in our body, our skin loses its elasticity and firmness, and along come those dreaded fine lines and wrinkles.


We start ageing young

Sorry to say, but our skin starts to age in our 20s onwards. Each year, it is estimated that we start producing about 1% less collagen in our skin each year.

From your 20s, you will notice:

  • visible fine lines and face wrinkles
  • sagging and thinning skin under eye bags
  • sunspots
  • thinning lips
  • neck wrinkles
  • lines around the mouth
  • frown lines
  • sagging eyelids
  • excess fat under the chin
  • sagging cheeks
  • crow’s feet

Luckily, there is a way to return firmness and smoothness to the skin. The answer: collagen.


Why is collagen the answer?

Collagen is a protein that strengthens our skin.

To get all scientific about it, collagen is a long, hard, insoluble and fibrous protein. There are 16 types of collagen fibres, and these are our body’s main protein and supporting structures that keep everything – from our bones, skin, muscles and body tissue – together and working.

Unfortunately, our body’s capacity to produce collagen reduces as we age.


Collagen keeps us young

While collagen works naturally on our inside to keep our body working, it also works to help keep our skin plump and firm.

As well as producing less collagen from our early twenties, from this age, the collagen in our body also starts to deteriorate. Less collagen production together with collagen deterioration is not good news for keeping our skin looking radiant and wrinkle-free.

The result of less collagen production is less volume and elasticity in our skin causes fine lines and facial wrinkles as the skin sags, plus a rougher skin texture and age spots as the skin cells are slower to regenerate.

This process starts to slow down – scientists estimate the skin’s natural exfoliation process decreases by 28% in our twenties alone! Clearly, collagen plays an important role replacing dead skin cells and keeping us looking younger.

Modern cosmetic therapies can strengthen your skin’s architecture while encouraging that all-important cell renewal process.

With the anti-ageing benefit of collagen available in dermal fillers, you can preserve your skin’s collagen while plumping up and adding volume.

Dermal fillers create a naturally younger look and smooth feel and they hydrate the skin and stimulate collagen growth.
We know that dermal fillers prompt your skin to naturally regenerate its own collagen production while boosting your appearance.

The lost-lasting cosmetic fillers contain natural anti-ageing benefits that encourage your body to produce its own collagen, while simultaneously adding volume to sagging skin and protecting the collagen in the area.

  • These collagen enhancing ingredients can be used in Dermal Fillers to:
  • Soften fine lines and wrinkles at the corner of the mouth and nose-to-mouth lines
  • Smooth forehead lines
  • Restoring and define lost facial contours, and add volume to sagging cheeks, jaw and chin
  • Smooth older hands that are looking bony and wrinkled
  • Create brighter eyes by replacing lost volume to sunken, hollowed out under eye areas and tear troughs, plus soften dark under eye bags
  • Add volume and definition to your lips with lip plumping injections

It’s no wonder that dermal fillers are the anti-ageing treatment that more and more Australians are relying on for plumper, smoother complexion!
