WELLNESS TIP OF THE WEEK
The Fiber of Youth and Health
Collagen is a protein fiber that makes up 30% of the protein found in our skin, bones, muscles and tendons. For the skin, collagen is what keeps it looking supple, smooth and youthful.
But did you know that, starting in our 20s, collagen production starts to slow down? Collagen is also negatively affected by sun exposure, alcohol, stress, smoking and pollution buildup on our skin, thus speeding the aging process by making our skin thinner, drier and saggier. So what can we do? There is no miracle cream that will keep you looking young forever, but there are treatments and procedures to slow down the aging process.
The key is to find ways to stimulate collagen and protect your skin. Today, we have technology such as radio frequency, micro-needling, growth factors like PRP/PRF to supercharge your skin to build new collagen. A more recent use of surgical grade threads to lift tissue and build collagen targets both loss of skin volume and sagging. These threads allow plumping and lifting without surgery. You shouldn’t forget to wear a quality sunscreen, have a good home skin routine that includes exfoliants, retinols and Vitamin C and make lifestyle and nutritional changes to round out a long term plan for skin health.
At Solace, we pride ourselves in using technology to analyze your skin and customize a treatment and maintenance plan for each individual. We use radio frequency, micro-needling, chemical peels, PRF and nonsurgical lifting threads as well as superb skin care products to help you fight the battle against aging. Give us a call and we’ll show you how!
