Collagen – Boost or Bust!

Would you believe we can ALL look better and better as we age?

Today's version of 'aging gracefully' is putting the emphasis on slowing time down and extending how you look now for another decade, hopefully even two. As our skin cells age and become disorganized, they create a rough surface texture, discoloration appears and the skin begins to lose its collagen support.

One procedure I recommend for boosting collagen, restoring elastin and treating fine lines and wrinkles is Micro-current. Microcurrent is a noninvasive electrotherapy technique that does not damage the dermis or epidermis in order to plump the collagen. Micro-current emits subtle electrical frequencies that mimic the body’s own electrical signals aiding in cellular recharge. Clinical studies have shown that after a series of treatments collagen production increases by 14 percent, elastin by 48 percent, and blood circulation by 38 percent. Scientists have also found that Micro-current treatments trigger the body’s production of amino acids and ATP. Both of these accelerate cell repair and promote healthier cell production.

Products I recommend for boosting collagen are Retinol: a derivitive of Vitamin A and gentle alternative to pharmaceutical Retinoic Acids. Anti-oxidants: to prevent cell damage from free radical scavengers. Peptides: to stimulate collagen production.
