About Your Skin

By age 25, your body’s production of collagen starts to decline. By your mid-30’s and onward, the loss of collagen accelerates.

Collagen is a protein produced in the human body. It is in the bones, tendons, muscles and skin. It is also found in the cornea of the eyes, blood vessels, gut lining, teeth and nails.

The word collagen is derived from the Greek word “kolla” meaning glue. So basically collagen is the “glue” that holds the entire body together. It decreases even more in women after menopause. Collagen also decreases with other factors such as smoking, sugar and ultraviolet rays. This decrease leads to wrinkles and sagging skin. There is no way to prevent collagen decreases in the body.

But you can fight against the loss and keep stimulating collagen production in your face to combat the look of aging. Along with good medical care and avoidance of bad habits such as smoking, we recommend quick, regularly scheduled facials and laser treatments that will enhance the fullness of your face and decrease the appearance of aging.
