Creating Collagen Naturally with Immediate Results
The Newest Dermal Filler Evolution: Collagen Filler
As the years go by, many of us try to preserve the youthful appearance of our skin. While a healthy lifestyle, skincare routine, and sun protection are all essential components of maintaining youthful skin, sometimes we need a little extra help. This is where collagen dermal fillers come into play. In this blog, we will delve into the fascinating world of collagen dermal fillers, exploring why they are crucial for skin health and their vital role in the battle against aging.
The Marvel of Collagen
Collagen is often referred to as the "building block" of the skin. It is a protein that provides structure, elasticity, and firmness to the skin. In fact, collagen accounts for approximately 70% of the skin's dry weight. It acts as a scaffold, holding everything together and giving our skin its youthful plumpness and smoothness.
Types of Collagen
There are several types of collagen in the human body, but the most prevalent in the skin are types I and III. Type I collagen provides strength to the skin, while type III collagen contributes to its suppleness and elasticity. Together, these collagen types are responsible for the skin's resilience and youthful appearance. At Aesthetic Med Studio in Springfield Missouri, we use the highest quality products along with the best devices to create the most anti-aging properties within the skin.
Collagen Production Decline
Unfortunately, as we age, the production of collagen in our bodies gradually declines. This decline starts as early as our mid-20s, leading to visible signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and a loss of volume. After the age of 30, it has been reported that we can lose up to 2% of collagen every year. Additionally, environmental factors like sun exposure, pollution, and poor nutrition can accelerate collagen breakdown. Collagen creation can be thought of as a multi-layered process that can involve several treatment options: Dermal Filler Injections, INTRAcel, Edge One Elite, ProFractional Laser, or even options like oral supplements to boost your body's natural collagen production.
Collagen Dermal Fillers - The Science Behind the Magic
To combat the effects of collagen loss and aging, scientists and dermatologists have developed collagen dermal fillers. These fillers are designed to replenish lost collagen and rejuvenate the skin. Let's explore the science behind these remarkable treatments. We are thrilled to offer the latest injectable collagen filler on the market. This product is a specific PRP process that spins your own blood turning it into a gel that is very similar to a hyaluronic dermal filler product such as Juvederm. Since it is your own body's natural cells, your system will begin to produce new collagen in the injected areas for up to 12 months.
Composition of Collagen Dermal Fillers
Many collagen dermal fillers typically contain collagen extracted from various sources, such as bovine (cow), porcine (pig), or human collagen. This would be like Bellafill, which also contains micro-plastics that may not ever actually dissolve/metabolize within the body. Even though there is rigorous testing to minimize bad effects we typically do not love the product Bellafill for these reasons. However, this new process does not use anything other than what your body naturally produces to fight against the aging process.
How Collagen Dermal Fillers Work
Once injected into the skin, collagen dermal fillers work by tagging your body’s natural collagen production, replenishing lost collagen and restoring volume to targeted areas. The procedure is minimally invasive with little to no downtime. There is a chance for some slight bruising, and swelling from the injection itself and can be performed by a Master Injector at Aesthetic Med Studio. The effects are visible almost immediately, providing a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
Interestingly, some collagen dermal fillers not only replace lost collagen but also stimulate the body's natural collagen production. For example, Sculptra, a popular collagen-stimulating filler, encourages collagen growth over time, resulting in gradual and long-lasting improvements. The new Collagen Dermal filler provides a similar result as Sculptra with less chances of negative side effects!
The Importance of Collagen Dermal Fillers for Skin Health
Collagen dermal fillers offer numerous benefits for skin health. Let's explore why they are considered crucial in maintaining healthy, youthful skin.
Restoring Volume in the Face and Body
One of the primary purposes of collagen dermal fillers is to restore volume to areas of the face that have lost their youthful fullness. As collagen diminishes with age, hollowed cheeks, sunken under-eye areas, and thinning lips can become prominent. Dermal fillers provide an effective solution to plump up these areas, resulting in a more vibrant and youthful appearance.
Minimizing Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Fine lines and wrinkles are often the first visible signs of aging. The new collagen dermal filler is an excellent way to smooth out these imperfections, making them less noticeable. By restoring volume and improving skin elasticity, these fillers can significantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. One of our favorite aspects is the amount of volume we are able to treat. One treatment with this product can equal up to 4 - 6 vials of Juvederm. This allows us to do full facial balancing creating beautiful symmetry within the face and body.
Enhancing Skin Elasticity
Collagen is a key component responsible for the skin's elasticity and ability to bounce back. Collagen dermal fillers enhance skin elasticity, making the skin look firmer and more supple. This improvement in elasticity contributes to a youthful and rejuvenated appearance. Skin that is supple will have less chance to form new wrinkles, or stretch marks which is always a goal of anti-aging.
Scar Reduction: Acne Scars and More
Collagen dermal fillers can also be used to minimize the appearance of scars, including acne scars. By filling in depressions and irregularities in the skin, these fillers can create a smoother and more even skin texture. With this being said, we have other avenues we prefer to take first to fight against scars. Doing other treatments that we have here will actually remove the scars permanently.
Collagen Dermal Fillers and Anti-Aging in the Face and Body
Beyond their role in promoting skin health, collagen dermal fillers are potent tools in the fight against aging. Here's why they are essential in the quest to turn back the clock:
Natural-Looking Results with Dermal Filler Injections
With all dermal fillers, including this new collagen filler, having an injector that is an artist is key. Being able to look at one's face and find aesthetic balance can not be underestimated. Think of it similar to an artist painting, anyone can pick up a paint brush and put it onto a canvas but it takes thousands of hours practicing the right techniques to create a masterpiece. At Aesthetic Med Studio, this is what we do, we create masterpieces. One of the biggest advantages of collagen dermal fillers is that they provide natural-looking results. Unlike some surgical procedures that can result in an overly tight or "plastic" appearance, fillers enhance the natural contours of the face, making the changes subtle and realistic.
Non-Surgical Approach to Facial Balancing
Collagen dermal fillers offer a non-surgical alternative to more invasive anti-aging procedures like facelifts. This means less downtime, fewer risks, and a quicker recovery period. Many people appreciate the convenience and flexibility that fillers provide. If you begin collagen treatments in your 30’s you may never get to the point where you need a full face lift. This is the beauty of aesthetics and doing treatments the right way.
How long does Collagen Dermal Filler Last?
While the results of collagen dermal fillers are not permanent, they can last for several months to a couple of years, depending on the type of filler used and individual factors. This longevity makes them an attractive option for those who want to maintain a youthful appearance without committing to surgical procedures.
