A little bit about Collagen - it is the most abundant protein in our body, approx a third.
It is a major building block of bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, hair , nails and SkIN! (Aswell as blood vessels, corneas and teeth )
For centuries , Chinese ladies have viewed collagen as a "fountain of youth", routinely consuming foods such as pigs feet, shark fins etc in the hope of smoothing withered skin and preserving joint health.
Collagen is the protein responsible for skin elasticity.
Collagen - helps form the scaffolding of our skin , to ensure a impermeable supple and hydrated skin barrier.
It is the glue that holds our body together.
Collagen makes up approx 75% of the dry weight of our skin, it provides volume that keeps skin looking plump and keeps fine lines and wrinkles at bay.
As we age , we break down collagen faster than we can replace it , leading to a net loss , year upon year....
Our bodies start losing collagen approx 1% per year from our mid twenties, increasing to a whopping 30%total loss during the first five years of menopause !
so it is important to replenish it by supplementation or encouraging our body to produce more ....

ALL the ways I can help our bodies to produce more collagen NATURALLY :-
Skinpen - the only FDA approved microneedling system - this causes tiny traumas to the upper dermis , which induces our bodies natural healing response - to produce more collagen.
Or Profhilo , and sunekos , both injectable treatments , they are Not dermal fillers , but they do contain pure hyaluronic acid , to nourish and hydrate the skin , and provide an immediate plumping effect.

Profhilo - stimulates our body’s fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin.
Sunekos feeds our internal extra cellular matrix - it basically plumps up our fibroblasts so that they can produce collagen more effectively.
