Collagen. Your favorite influencers, your mother and the team at Kalon Medical Spa are all talking about it.
While collagen may not be new to skin health, it recently has gained some deserved recognition in the preventative skin care game.
Collagen is our body’s most abundant protein, and it’s both fibrous and structural. It’s essentially the glue that holds our body together – the word does come from the Greek word “kolla,” meaning glue. This essential protein not only connects cells and tissues but also helps build bones, tendons, tissues and skin; therefore, we have collagen to thank for our skin’s youthful glow.
We also can attribute skin elasticity, firmness and flexibility to collagen. Most of this protein is found in the middle layer of skin, the dermis, which adds volume to the skin and prevents wrinkles, fine lines and sagging.
As we age, our bodies reduce natural collagen production. Simultaneously, we experience a decrease in tissue regeneration. Around age 20, your collagen levels begin to thin. At age 40, the elastin fibers start to break and lose elasticity.
Reduced collagen levels may sound scary, but new advancements in skin rejuvenation have made collagen regeneration more possible than ever before. Kalon can help your skin reclaim its outer glow. Almost all our treatments – chemical peels, Sculptra®, microneedling and more – rebuild collagen and restore facial volume.
To start replenishing your collagen, call Kalon at 605-983-SKIN (7546), or visit our website at kalonmedicalspa.com.
