Your body’s natural collagen is important for the health and strength of your skin. If you are concerned about looking older, or sagging loose skin, then you need to discover the Este Medical skincare treatments that can naturally boost your skin’s collagen. 

What does collagen do for skin? Collagen is an essential building block your body uses to keep it supple and youthful. Find out how you can trigger your body to increase collagen production. Learn how collagen keeps your skin from sagging and drooping. 

Is Collagen Good For Skin? 

Yes, collagen is excellent for skin health. When your skin is rich with collagen, wrinkles are less visible, and the skin is smoother and tighter.  

As we get older, our skin’s strength, hydration levels, and elasticity decrease, as our bodies slow down collagen production. When this happens our skin can look older, more crepey, show more visible wrinkles and lines, and facial features like the eyebrows, eyelids, cheeks and jowls start to look droopy and loose skin becomes a concern.  

Near the end of our 20s, our body and face begin to lose collagen, and for females specifically, menopause can have a dramatic effect on collagen production. If this is already an issue for you, we recommend you contact an Este Medical UK clinic near you and ask about anti-ageing + collagen skincare treatments

Can You Rebuild Collagen In Your Skin? 

Yes, you can! There are several ways to boost collagen, including supplements, dietary changes, and cosmetic treatments.

Here’s how you can start to increase your body’s collagen production:

  • Get enough Vitamin C 
  • Ask you doctor about hydrolyzed collagen supplements
  • Try hyaluronic acid dermal fillers
  • Research hyaluronic acid topical serums and creams
  • Eat a food diet rich in antioxidants
  • Protect your skin from sunlight and UV rays 
  • Try non-invasive light therapy to improve skin elasticity

A combination of regular LED light therapy, microneedling, and HIFES body and face treatment will help you to maintain smoother skin with less wrinkles for longer. 

Contact Este Medical and book a UK skin assessment to find out which of our collagen boosting skin treatments is the most ideal for you!

Can Collagen Reverse Sagging Skin? 

As collagen is what keeps skin from sagging, restoring collagen to your skin will help to improve issues with sagging skin. Skin tightening treatments like HIFU (high intensity focused ultrasound) are highly effective at restoring the skin and making it feel and look tighter again.

If sagging skin is your number one issue, then book a consultation to discuss having an Este non-surgical facelift

Can Collagen Help Loose Skin? 

If you are experiencing loose skin, say from recent weight loss, then there are cosmetic treatments that can help to tighten the skin and stimulate your body to increase collagen. Depending on how much loose skin you have, you may need to combine a few approaches to improve your skin quality. 

It is recommended you focus on lifestyle and cosmetic approaches to reduce loose skin, for instance: 

  • Consult with a personal trainer about targeted resistance training
  • Stay well hydrated and eat a nutritious food diet 
  • Speak to your GP about taking collagen supplements 
  • Look into skin firming creams 
  • Book an Este body contouring consultation 

Two treatments we strongly recommend for loose skin on the face and body are:

  • Microneedling to increase face collagen for a more lifted look 
  • VelaShape for fat reduction and smoother skin on the body

How Long Does Collagen Take To Work On Skin?

This is an important question, because collagen cosmetic treatments do work, but the best results can take a few weeks or longer, as it takes time for your body to ramp up collagen production. If you are serious about long-term skin tightening and lifting of facial features and sagging skin, then professional collagen skin treatments are worth it.

Depending on which collagen treatments you have and your age (e.g., Morpheus8, Magic Needle, HIFU…), new collagen skin growth may take from 3 to 12 weeks to show, and while these results are not permanent (see permanent facelift), results from our Este Medical cosmetic collagen treatments can last a year or more.
