Collagen – the secret of beauty and youth

 

Collagen is a form of fibrous protein that is normally present in the bodies of humans and even mammals. It provides a supportive structure for various body tissues such as muscles, bones and ligaments and prevents them from falling apart. It works with another compound called Elastin to provide strength and firmness to the tissues, making up about 25% to 35% of the whole-body protein content. However, the production of this substance diminishes as people grow older. The results of the low production include wrinkles, thinning skin and brittle hair among others.

How Collagen Works

Collagen works with Elastin to provide strength and firmness to the tissues. Collagen also works to keep the skin looking firm, tight, flexible and youthful looking. Young people naturally produce more collagen than older people. With age, the collagen in the body breaks down leading to wrinkles and folds around the mouth. As such, collagen stimulation leads to a more youthful looking skin. The substance has been used for a long time in combating signs of aging.

Why Lines/Wrinkles appear?

Face skin is comprised by three distinct layers: an external visible layer on the surface called epidermis, which serves, among other things, to control loss of water in the cells and tissue. Without this protection barrier the body dehydrates rapidly. Next, there is rich intermediate layer located under the surface called dermis, which is mainly made of the protein called collagen. This protein forms a network of fibers that provides the structure for the growth of cells and blood vessels, and it is a protection shield against bacteria. And finally, an internal layer under the dermis called subcutaneous layer, also known as the fat layer that comprises a network of collagen fibers. When collagen in these three layers is damaged due to sun exposure, familial predisposition, or the normal aging process, the face begins to wrinkle. Logically, treatments that only work on the surface cannot do anything to restore the collagen in the skin’s internal layers. Because collagen is the main component of the dermis, it acts as the skin’s support structure. In young skin, the collagen structure is intact and the skin has enough hydration and elasticity. Young skin is resistant to many facial expressions which we adopt and use everyday. But, with time, the support structure weakens and the elasticity begins to be loss manifesting for example with wrinkles in the forehead. Skin begins to loss its tone as the collagen diminishes. Each time we laugh, frown, or make a gesture, we exercise tension in the skin collagen. The resulting effect of these facial expressions is accumulative and facial lines begin to appear.

Non-surgical treatment to activate collagen –Collagen RF for face lifting and firming

Collagen RF Treatment has the property to stimulate the internal mechanism of the cells to re-dense the tissue compacting the epidermis and refilling dermis wrinkles from inside. It rebuilds the collagen using special medical equipment that generates radio frequency waves (cold/hot) to stimulate the collagen itself. Skin contraction by means of this treatment reduces signs of aging in the skin of the face and body, renewing collagen from the inside out. This is a non-invasive procedure that reaffirms and renews the collagen in the three layers of the skin.

How Callagen RF does it?

Radio frequency (RF) skin tightening is an aesthetic technique that uses RF energy to heat tissue and stimulate subdermal collagen production in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines and loose skin. The technique induces tissue remodeling and production of new collagen and elastin. The process provides an alternative to facelift and other cosmetic surgeries. Collagen RF or Collagen Radio Frequency is a program to heats up the skin’s intermediate layer and the collagen network of the skin’s internal layer, causing an adjustment of the skin firmness in addition to an improvement of its tone and texture. Capacitive Radio Frequency technology heats the intermediate layer of the skin and the collagen network in the internal layer, in a safe way, producing an immediate adjustment in addition to improve tone and texture. It is not invasive. It is not surgical. It does not need hospitalization, and allows and reaches the immediate contraction of the collagen produced by a deep controlled body’s contour and turgescence.

The results can be seen immediately and the appearance improves with time.
