The Best Ways to Stimulate Collagen Production

The Best Ways to Stimulate Collagen Production

Collagen is an essential building block in your hair, nails, and skin. It’s a natural protein that gives your skin structure and shape, but collagen production naturally decreases as you get older. Lack of collagen is one of the top causes of lined, wrinkled, and aging skin.

You’ve probably seen ads for collagen supplements, collagen powder, collagen creams, and more promising to boost collagen production and give you more youthful-looking skin. But are these methods the best ways to stimulate collagen production?

Now’s the time to find out. Walter D. Gracia, MD, PA, and our team understand the crucial role collagen plays in plump, resilient skin, and that’s why we bring the latest aesthetic treatments to our patients in Fort Worth, Texas.

If your skin looks tired and lost its luster, here are some of the best treatments to stimulate natural collagen production and restore glowing skin.

Laser resurfacing: stimulating collagen production from within

As you age, collagen production in your skin naturally slows down. The result is sagging, dull-looking skin that lacks vibrancy. 

Lack of collagen is a very common problem, and laser resurfacing is one of the best ways to treat it. Aesthetic lasers deliver therapeutic energy to the surface of your skin, stimulating cell turnover and boosting collagen production from within.

Over time, this extra collagen production transforms the look of your skin — and there’s minimal downtime with treatment. A few laser resurfacing options Dr. Gracia offers include:

Fractora laser resurfacing

Fractora laser resurfacing addresses many of the most common signs of aging skin. Dr. Gracia may recommend Fractora for people bothered by:

Fractora is a fractional laser that gently targets the layers of your skin. The treatment stimulates collagen growth, which improves the look and texture of your skin over time.

Madonna lift

Loss of collagen can make your skin sag, which can be particularly problematic around the eyes. Loose, sagging skin on your eyebrows and eyelids can interfere with vision and make you look much older, but the Madonna lift is a fractional laser treatment to counteract these effects.

The Madonna lift uses CO2 lasers to stimulate and lift the skin around your eyes. The laser energy reaches the deep layers of your skin to boost collagen production and cell turnover. Over time, skin becomes tighter and more lifted, without the need for more invasive procedures.

Finding the right collagen treatment for your skin

Have you noticed the effects that loss of collagen can have on your skin and your confidence? You don’t have to settle for lines, wrinkles, and a dull complexion.

Dr. Gracia and our team work with adults of all ages to develop personalized skincare plans that revitalize their look. If you’re bothered by something about your skin, we offer comprehensive assessments to help you learn about your options.

Laser resurfacing is generally safe for many people. With a short series of treatments and minimal downtime, your skin could get a boost of collagen that helps restore that youthful glow you’re missing.
