What is collagen and how can it make you look younger?
Often referred to as the building blocks of our skin, collagen is the main structural protein that keeps our skin supple and tight. As we age, our collagen reserves decline in quantity and quality, making us prone to sagging, wrinkles and ageing.
From the age of 18, we lose 1% of collogen every year, with up to 30% lost during menopause. Like the mortar in a wall, once removed the bricks start to crumble, and this is accelerated with exposure to the sun, sugar, and smoking. But there’s no need to panic, as there’s a number of ways you can reverse the effects of collagen loss.
How can you rebuild collagen?
More aesthetic treatments and products are coming onto the market containing collagen, but not all are effective. With many making big claims that they will help you look younger instantly, look out for treatments and products that are clinic approved. The team at The Aesthetics Room have pulled together their recommendations to boost your collagen levels.
The popular treatment, micro-needling is quickly becoming more commonly known as collagen induction therapy. Tiny needles are used to puncture the first layer of skin, which boosts the production of collagen and in turn rejuvenates the complexion, reducing fine lines and wrinkles
The vampire peel may sound terrifying, but in the safe hands of professionals like the team at The Aesthetics Room, the simple, quick and virtually painless procedure delivers incredible results. A small amount of blood is taken and is put through a process that separates the platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Once activated, the PRP is injected into the skin to regenerate collagen and the tissue that makes your skin soft.
If you’re looking for a less invasive solution, The Aesthetics Room’s online store sells a range of collagen boosting products, such as its collagen hydrating cream, with shea butter, hydrolyzed wheat protein, olive fruit oil and sweet almond fruit extract. Currently on sale, purchase the collagen hydrating cream today for only £30 (usually £42).
The sell-out professional c-serum is available in three concentrations: 10%, 15% and 20%. When used regularly, the highly concentrated serum, which contains L-absorbic acid (vitamin E) stimulates collagen production and helps minimise fine lines and wrinkles. With the 15% (£85, usually £96.80) and 20% (£105, usually £120) concentrations currently on sale, grab your bottle before they’re gone.
