There’s no denying that collagen is the it-girl of the skin health game right now. And with the name ‘collagen’ currently flashing everywhere in bright shiny lights, we can confirm she is fundamental in holding everything together. Why? Collagen encourages cell renewal to replace dead skin cells and minimises the development of wrinkles. The result? Firmer, plumper more youthful skin!
So, without further ado, let’s discuss exactly what treatments we offer at Caci that can help you to produce more of the superstar that is collagen. Because after all, the superpower of collagen is that by stimulating its growth, it causes a domino effect. i.e. the more you have, the more your body can produce and maintain!
Fractional CO2 Laser
Fractional CO2 Laser is the ultimate in collagen induction as it creates the largest wound response of all Caci treatments. Because we are creating this higher wound response, we are creating a good amount of controlled damage which will cause our bodies to start producing all of that collagen tissue we love to be stronger and firmer than before.
To go a little more in depth, Fractional CO2 Laser uses a carbon dioxide laser that works to tighten, resurface, and strengthen the skin by removing small plugs of skin. This process helps to address skin elasticity, scarring and fine lines and wrinkles. The small areas of skin removed prompts a cascade of healing and growth factors which pull the skin together and strengthen its integrity. The healing process is the part which helps to create more collagen. *Enter plumper, more resilient skin*
Microneedling is another amazing option for collagen stimulation. This treatment uses micro needles at varying lengths to penetrate skin, triggering our body’s own wound healing response. Which as we just learnt, when our skin is damaged, it produces new and improved collagen tissue.
Vitamins and amino acids are the building blocks for collagen production; during a Microneedling treatment, a combination of hyaluronic acid, multi-vitamins and amino acids are infused to boost collagen production even more for healthier looking skin.
Skin Conditioning Treatments
To support our advanced collagen stimulating treatments, we can also recommend our non-invasive correcting skin conditioning treatments with their own collagen inducing benefits.
Red Light Therapy is a treatment that stimulates our fibroblasts which stimulates collagen. Fibroblasts are the principle active cell of connective tissue and play a critical role in wound healing.
Microdermabrasion, our popular resurfacing treatment, causes inflammation in the skin. This inflammation results in stimulating collagen to help to rejuvenate the skin.
And Skincare Infusion; our treatment which uses soundwaves to deeply penetrate active ingredients towards the skin’s dermis. These active ingredients can consist of vitamin C and peptides, both encourage the stimulation of collagen.
