What Is Collagen, The Benefits, And How To Get More Of It!

In the beauty and skincare industry, “Collagen” is a powerful word and is an essential piece of what keeps us looking younger and longer! 

When we are growing up, we have full, rosy cheeks and plump, tight, and youthful-looking skin. As we age, lines and wrinkles appear, our appearance starts to look less full, and our skin gets dull and sallow. 

Through no fault of our own, we lose the natural ability to produce the liquid gold that is collagen, which plays a role in how our skin feels and appears. 

It’s a fact of life that we must age and grow older. But it’s not a fact that we must look our age! 

If you could have glowing, healthy, and youthful skin for as long as possible, why would you have it any other way? 

Let’s talk more about collagen and why it’s called liquid gold!

What Is Collagen?

Collagen is the main structural protein found in the body’s connective tissue, skin, tendons, bone, and cartilage. 

The benefits that collagen provides are endless. It helps our nails, skin, and hair stay healthy and youthful looking. It also aids in joint health, bone loss, gut health, weight loss, heart health, and so much more. 

For the sake of this article, we are focusing on the role collagen plays in the skin. In the skin, collagen is like a rubber band; it gives the skin its strength and elasticity! 

And like a rubber band, collagen, over time, becomes stretched out and weaker, leading your skin to take longer and longer to repair. As we said, it’s a fact of life that this happens, and our bodies change. 

But, the good news is we can kickstart collagen back into gear with skincare treatments and medical-grade skincare that stimulates collagen reproduction

Kickstart Your Collagen

Here at our medspa, we offer several options that stimulate and reinvigorate your natural collagen production. 


The focus of a Microneedling treatment is collagen production and stimulation. Microneedling is also called Collagen Induction Therapy for what it does to the skin and its purpose. 

When receiving a Microneedling treatment, your skin is punctured with hundreds of microscopic needles. They are so small that you barely feel a prick, but it makes a massive difference in the skin. 

These tiny micro-tears signal to the body that it needs to heal. Since collagen’s job is to be the structural support of the skin, it rushes to these areas and begins the healing and repair process. 

You’ll find refreshed skin, reduced scarring, acne reduction, balanced skin texture and color, and much more with this treatment. 

IPL Photofacial

Our IPL Photofacial therapy uses Intense Pulsed Light to rejuvenate the skin and stimulate collagen growth for continued and long-lasting results. 

Photofacials help to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, firm the skin and even the texture, and decrease the severity of sun damage and age spots. 

Low pH Chemical Peels

Low pH Chemical Peels are a skin regeneration treatment that focuses on getting down into the lower layers of the skin and healing from the inside out. 

As the skin is treated with a safe acidic treatment, your skin will react and kick itself into gear. Collagen and elastin will begin producing to heal the skin and give it a fresh new look. Your top layer skin will slough off, revealing a glowing, healthy layer underneath.

Collagen Supplements

You can also boost your collagen by taking collagen supplements! This is a quick and easy way to get your daily collagen intake! Daily collagen supplements will help slow down the aging process, strengthen bone density, and increase skin hydration and elasticity.
