Getting older naturally brings the signs of your age and wisdom- those pesky lines and wrinkles. But you don't have to fight with these annoyances any longer! With Collagen skin treatments, you can help put those worry lines in the past. The long lasting treatment only takes about an hour to receive and you'll enjoy results for up to 6 months! You'll see results right away with a brief recovery time, so you can even have it done on a work day. (Please note, for the first treatment, allergy tests are required for the patient's reaction to collagen treatment)
In today's media, we are constantly inundated with images of beautiful people with flawless skin, no blemishes, wrinkles, or lines to speak of. The media has its own tricks, like flattering light, airbrushing, and professional makeup that can create this illusion. The everyday individual can't use those techniques to feel good about their skin in their busy life, that's why collagen treatment is a simple solution.
There is a natural support layer of collagen which is situated just below the epidermis layer of your skin. When that collagen starts to wear down from time and sun damage, you will start to notice wrinkles and facial lines as a result. Using topical creams, exfoliating techniques, and moisturizers can help to keep the surface of your skin healthy, but they can't help rejuvenate the collagen layer below the surface level of the skin that is actually causing the wrinkles and lines to appear.
What is Collagen Therapy?
Collagen Therapy is a safe and simple solution to treat these lines and wrinkles. It's an easy, non surgical process that helps to replenish the natural collagen structure below the skin. The therapy works quickly and you'll be able to notice results immediately after the process is finished.
Your skin, the body's largest organ, is composed of two layers. The surface layer of skin is known as the epidermis and it functions as a protective barrier against damage. It also has the important function of controlling water loss from tissues and cells in the body. Without this special function, your body would lose water and dehydrate quickly.
Skin is your body's largest, and most visible, organ. Your skin is composed of two layers:
Below the epidermis is the second skin layer known as the dermis. The dermis is mostly constructed of a special protein- collagen. Within the collagen is a vast network of organic fibers that provide the building blocks for cells and blood vessels to grow. Because collagen is the main component of the dermis layer, it also forms the primary support structure for all of your skin.
Why do I get facial lines and wrinkles?
In young skin, the collagen fibers and framework is flexible and intact. Your skin is more elastic and resilient to facial movements. But over time, the collagen network starts to wear down and lose some of its elasticity and flexibility. Your facial skin stops "bouncing back" to its original state when you smile or frown and little creases start to appear. The aging and breakdown of collagen is what causes these unwanted lines.
How do I get started with this treatment?
Blaine Dermatology happily provides collagen therapy as a skin service to all of our clients. You can get started by asking one of our clinical staff for a skin test. This easy and simple test will let us know whether or not you are allergic to the type of collagen implants that will be used in treatment. However, this test takes a 4 week period to complete, so ask us about it now. The majority of clients (96%) do not have any reaction to the skin test and are approved for treatment. If you exhibit no reaction from the test and no adverse side effects, you are eligible to start collagen therapy right away.
"I was really embarrassed when I started to experience acne problems when I was pushing 30. I struggled with acne in high school, but I thought those irritating and awful problems were behind me. The Blaine clinic helped me learn more about the causes behind adult acne and what kind of treatment I could use to keep it under control. Their treatments have been phenomenal and I'm really glad that I don't have to deal with hiding my face anymore!"
"I love the facial treatments at the Blaine Dermatology Spa! I know that I'm getting the real deal under the direction of dermatologists like Dr. Peppis, and my skin always feels refreshed and beautiful. I definitely recommend trying out their treatments to anyone who wants to feel better about their skin health and their skin appearance. You'll feel amazing."
