Benefits of Collagen
There are many benefits to boosting the collagen in our skin and there are also a number of different treatments, it really comes down to personal choice. Let's explore how Plasma Pen treatments provide a natural boost to your collagen levels and find out if it's worth the hype.
What Does Collagen Do For Our Skin?
Let's find out what collagen is and why it's so important for the health of your skin and how it aids in maintaining a youthful appearance.
Collagen is what plumps our skin and keeps it from sagging, it's also the main building block for our hair, muscles, ligaments, skin, bone and tendons. Your body naturally makes collagen and when it comes to your skin it's found deep in the dermis, it actually makes up about 70-80% of it.
As we age collagen naturally decreases and we start to lose some of our skin's elasticity, this leads to fine lines and wrinkles as the skin begins to sag. There are many ways you can boost collagen, some people take a supplement while others get it through their skin care such as vitamin C.
"From what we know now, people are likely to get more benefit from retinol or vitamin C skin care products than from a collagen-containing cream," Dr. Aivaz says.
How Does Plasma Pen Boost Collagen?
Plasma Pen is fast becoming the go to treatment for long lasting results.Plasma Pen technicians use the device to deliver soft-surgery plasma fibroblasting. The plasma significantly lifts, tightens, resurfaces & regenerates almost any area of the skin.
Plasma Pen converts electrical energy into gaseous molecular nitrogen & transmits that energised gas in a non-contact way to the surface of the skin's surface from above.
This causes a micro trauma to the skin's epidermal layer (top layers) whilst simultaneously heating and disrupting the deeper dermal structure via thermal conduction, this treatment is also known as fibroblasting.
Fibroblasts are the most common cells of connective tissue in the body that produce collagen and after the plasma pen treatment fibroblasts regenerate the natural production of collagen to heal the skin, during the healing process. This process will continue over a course of 10 - 12 weeks, resulting in plumper and firmer looking skin.
Why Plasma Pen Is Worth The Hype
Unlike Botox and fillers the results of Plasma Pen treatments last up to 3-4 years as the skin begins it's natural aging process. There is minimal downtime and some mild swelling and slight stinging effects are probably the most uncomfortable side effects.
There are no needles, no cutting and no stitches required and it's at a price point that makes it affordable to many looking for more long term results, that don't involve surgery and the Plasma Pen is suitable for treating the face, neck and body.
While you will see instant results as the skin is tightened and lifted the full results take up to 10-12 weeks, so it’s important to take a before photo so you can see the full results.
We all have different expectations for how we want our skin to look and whilst most clients are happy with just one treatment, it is possible to have further treatments on the same area 8-10 weeks after. Plasma Pen Gold Coast customises each treatment to your personal skin goals.
