What is Collagen?

About 80% of your skin is made from collagen, giving the skin its basic structure. Collagen makes skin stronger, thicker and suppler. The gradual loss of collagen with age results in lines, wrinkles and other blemishes associated with ageing.

This process is exacerbated by the sun.  Collagen is something your skinnaturally produces that keeps your skin plump and healthy.

Collagen is a protein which formed with 3 twisted peptides.It is the most abundant protein in human body. Its amount is more than 30% of total protein in the body. Collagen is the most important part in extracellular matrix.

There is about 3kg of collagen in human body. It mainly exists in skin, bones, eyes, teeth, muscles, internal organs including the heart, liver, spleen, kidney, stomach, intestines and blood vessels etc.

It maintains the shape and structure of skin, tissues and organs. It is an essential substance for repairing of tissues.

Two thirds of human body are composed with water. Collagen is 70% of the component in the skin. It possesses moisturising function and it is "natural reservoir" of human body. Collagen maintains and enhances the water-holding capacity, elasticity and flexibility of skin.

Our body can synthesize collagen by itself - However, as age increases, the ability to synthesize collagen is weakened, and the collagen level in human body decreases. According to the research, when a person is younger than 25, his/her body can synthesize enough collagen. That's why skin is good at young age. Between ages of 25 to 35, the synthesis ability of collagen decreases 20%. From 35 to 45, the synthesis ability decreases 40%. From 45 to 55, the ability decreases 60%. For age of 65 to 75, only 20% of the synthesis ability is left. For age of 75 and older, only 5% - 10% is left. Skin-Needling and other invasive procedures are used to treat deep lines and depressed scars.

It can be safely performed on all skin colours and types When this anti-aging treatment of micro-needling is performed that opens tiny micro-channels into the skin which is then sprayed with a special product with an enrichment • Vitamin A; • Vitamin C •Antioxidants and •Collagen synthesis deep into the skin. The extra benefits are that the serums and moisturisers applied is increased as they can now penetrate deeper. 

These active ingredients and vitamins can reach the dermal layer through this deeper penetration into the skin which implements their benefits. Also with the use of these medical grade tiny micro-needles, passed through the epidermis, creating micro- channels in the stratum corneum, whereby the penetration of large molecules can be improved by at least 10,000 times.  Skin-needling can be used as a one-off treatment for a fresher skin, mainly on younger clients or for best results a course of 3 to 6 treatments is advised once every six weeks.  

Damaged Skin:

  • Over time, normal ageing and damage from the environment (sun, stress and pollution) cause skin to lose its ability to 'renew' itself properly.
  • Cell turnover slows, causing the dead skin layer of the Stratum Corneum, or surface, to be thicker which slows the flow of moisture from within, resulting in dry uneven skin texture.
  • Skin cells are disorganized and mis-shapen.
  • Daily exposure to sunlight causes the amount of pigment in each cell to increase, producing freckles or age spots and uneven skin tone.
  • Collagen and elastin begin to break down, causing the skin to age, lose its resilience, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and sagging.
  • Skin Needling produces similar result to Pixel, Laser and Deep Chemical Peels, and is much less invasive (with a skin numbing cream the treatment is pain free). This treatment is suitable for treating all skin types.

Healthy Skin:

  • The skin's cellular functions are accelerated, allowing continual renewal, as dead skin cells are replaced by fresh cells pushed to the skin's surface, making the surface (Stratum Corneum) smoother and naturally hydrated.
  • Freckles and age spots lighten or can disappear altogether.
  • Pigment cells (melanin) are more evenly distributed, helping prevent the appearance of new freckles and age spots.
  • The skin is rich in collagen and elastin that promote resilience and firmness.
  • All these functions work together to keep skin looking and acting younger and healthier.
