Collagen Boosting Treatments in Lytham and St. Annes

Collagen is the secret ingredient in maintaining youthful luminous skin, strong nails and shiny healthy hair. It is a naturally occurring protein in the body and one of the major building blocks that keeps everything in top shape. Sadly, after around the age of 25, your body naturally starts to slow down its collagen production. This leads to thin skin and wrinkles that deepen with time. Treatments to keep its production strong as we age can help to keep skin firm and healthy.

There are many treatment methods that can be used to achieve collagen stimulation or to replace lost collagen. They can each be used alone, in combination with each other or in combination with other anti ageing injectable treatments. Combinations work synergistically, building and layering to treat the multi-dimensional needs of skin as it ages and deliver superior, longer lasting results. Skin booster injections (Profhilo, Sunekos, HArmonyCa®), LED light therapy and oral supplementation are the treatments that are offered at the Clinic by Dr. Taylor. These treatments have been carefully chosen as being high quality products with evidenced based, well proven results. As with other injectables it is essential that these treatments are only delivered by highly trained medical professionals to ensure optimal results.

How can skin booster injections make me look younger?

Luminous, hydrated, plump skin is a vital component in achieving a youthful look.

Skin/collagen boosting injections work by rejuvenating the skin from the inside out. They offer collagen stimulation and bioremodelling of the skin with an immediate tightening effect. Bioremodelling is an innovative approach to anti-ageing which counteracts skin laxity of the face and in areas traditionally difficult to treat such as the neck, décolleté, hands, arms and knees. The result is firmer, healthier smoother skin. Skin booster injections offered by Dr. Taylor include Profhilo, Sunekos and HArmonyCa®.

Why is collagen so important?

Collagen is essential in achieving and maintaining skin elasticity and hydration, its production however gradually declines with age.

This lack of collagen can leave skin looking tired, dull, and saggy and significantly contributes to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. The bio-remodelling effect of skin boosters stimulates collagen production and helps to rebuild and rejuvenate your skin.

What is the difference between skin boosters and facial fillers?

Skin boosting injections and facial fillers sound very similar, in that they both contain Hyaluronic Acid as the main ingredient.

The way that they work however, and the results achieved are quite different. Skin booster injections (e.g. Profhilo and Sunekos) do not plump the skin in the same way as facial fillers. Facial fillers are injected deep to the skin and work to sculpt a facial feature or plump a specific area. Skin boosters however work by improving the quality of the skin over a much wider area, spreading under the skin like honey to target fine lines and wrinkles. They integrate into the tissue and restore the levels of hyaluronic acid naturally found in the skin. They are designed to affect the skin on a cellular level, enabling the skin to heal and mend itself in a natural way.

HArmonyCa® is a new injectable product that combines the best of both treatments. It is a dual-effect hybrid injectable that combines the lifting, volumizing power of traditional facial filler with a gradual longer-term biostimulating collagen boost for the skin.

Can you stimulate collagen without injections?

Yes, there are a number of treatment methods that can be used to achieve collagen stimulation.

Injectables offer the offer the quickest route to visible results, however there are also several other treatments that can deliver natural skin rejuvenation without needles. LED phototherapy and oral supplements are evidence-based methods offered by Dr. Taylor.

LED phototherapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses clinically proven therapeutic light energy to trigger the skins natural rejuvenation and repair processes. The rejuvenating Red light from Dermalux Flex MD energises cells to accelerate renewal and boost collagen production. Treatment simply involves relaxing under the energising light for around 30 minutes, this can even be done from the comfort of your own home.

Oral supplements can also help to improve collagen levels within the skin and promote skin health. NutraKOS Drinkables contain a unique mix of essential amino acids which renews skin tissue from the inside out. Structural proteins are restored, resulting in an all-round glow of softer skin, stronger nails and healthier shiny hair.

Can skin boosters be used with other treatments?

Yes. Each treatment can be successfully used in isolation however they also work very well in combination with other anti-ageing treatments.

Alone, they can offer a good introduction to the world of anti-ageing treatments for those with early signs of ageing skin or those wanting only the most subtle and natural results. In combination with other injectables for facial rejuvenation the treatments work synergistically, building and layering to treat the multi-dimensional needs of skin as it ages and deliver superior, longer lasting results.
