Why Collagen is the Secret to Younger-Looking Skin

Familiar with the word “collagen” but not entirely sure what it is or what it does? Collagen is a protein that offers remarkable benefits for the skin and holds the key to unlocking your skin’s youthful potential. But how?  

Join us here at AL Aesthetics as we unravel the mysteries of collagen, including the benefits of collagen for the skin and how to increase collagen in the skin. Read on to discover how collagen can transform your skin from within for a vibrant, younger-looking complexion.


What is Collagen?

Collagen is a protein naturally found in the body and responsible for skin strength and elasticity, alongside supporting the bones, muscles, and connective tissues. Made from long chains of amino acids, collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. It works to keep our skin plump smooth and resilient.  

Does Collagen Make You Look Younger?  

Absolutely!  As we get older, the amount of collagen in our bodies naturally declines, leading to visible signs of ageing like sagging skin and fine lines and wrinkles.

By replenishing collagen levels, you can effectively reverse the signs of ageing and achieve a rejuvenated, more youthful complexion. The result is a fresher, smoother, and more radiant appearance that is truly timeless.  

What are the Benefits of Collagen for the Skin?

Collagen and skin care go hand in hand. It offers many transformative benefits for the skin, including:

  • Smooths Away Fine Lines & Wrinkles:  Collagen acts as a natural filler, diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by plumping up the skin and enhancing volume, smoothness, and texture.  
  • Improves Skin Elasticity:  Collagen is essential for maintaining skin elasticity, which helps to prevent sagging by promoting a firm, lifted appearance. By supporting the skin's structure, collagen contributes to a more resilient and youthful-looking complexion.
  • Boosts Hydration:  By improving skin hydration and preventing dryness, collagen helps to lock in moisture. This results in a supple, dewy complexion, enhancing your overall skin health and vitality.
  • Improves Skin Tone:  Reducing pigmentation, collagen promotes cell regeneration and turnover, thereby effectively improving skin tone and texture. This creates a brighter, more luminous and more even complexion.
  • Enhances Wound Healing:  Collagen plays a crucial role in wound healing, as it helps to repair damaged skin and promote faster recovery. By stimulating collagen production, the skin's natural healing processes are accelerated, which results in improved wound closure and reduced scarring.

How to Increase Collagen in the Skin  

While countless products like powders and supplements promise to boost collagen production in the skin, the most effective solutions lie in advanced aesthetic treatments. Fortunately, here at AL Aesthetics, we’re experts in delivering a wide range of treatments designed to stimulate collagen production and revitalise the skin from within.  

Some of these incredible treatments include:

  1. SkinPen Microneedling:  

SkinPen Microneedling is a revolutionary treatment that harnesses the power of controlled micro-injuries to stimulate collagen production in the skin. By creating tiny punctures in the skin's surface, this treatment triggers the body's natural healing response for increased collagen synthesis and skin rejuvenation.  

With each session of SkinPen Microneedling, you'll notice significant improvements in skin texture, tone, and elasticity, gradually revealing a smoother, more youthful complexion.

  1. Profhilo:  

Profhilo is a groundbreaking injectable treatment that delivers a potent dose of hyaluronic acid directly into the skin. The innovative Profhilo formula stimulates collagen and elastin production, resulting in firmer, more hydrated skin with improved elasticity.  

  1. Dermal Fillers:  

Our dermal fillers in Solihull treatment is a highly popular and versatile solution for restoring lost volume and enhancing facial contours. By replenishing collagen and hyaluronic acid levels, dermal fillers work to reduce wrinkles and restore youthful plumpness to the skin. Whether you're looking to enhance your lips, cheeks, or under-eye area, this constantly trending treatment, also available at our Wolverhampton and London clinics, is the perfect remedy.

  1. Polynucleotides:  

Polynucleotides are naturally occurring molecules in the body that promote tissue regeneration and repair. When applied to the skin, Polynucleotides stimulate collagen synthesis and accelerate the healing process, for firmer, more supple, and more youthful-looking skin.
