Anti-Aging Q&A

What are anti-aging treatments?

Anti-aging treatments minimize the signs of aging, like fine lines and static wrinkles. As you age, many of the processes that keep your skin tight and moisturized begin to slow. 

 

Collagen and elastin are proteins that build your skin’s structure and allow it to bounce back. After age 30, collagen and elastin production slows. Wrinkles start to form and the skin thins and sags. It also becomes dry as you lose these essential proteins.

 

Collagen loss isn’t the only process that slows. Cell turnover — when new skin cells replace old ones — also takes longer. Slower cell turnover can lead to pigmentation abnormalities that age your skin.

 

Anti-aging treatments can help restore the proteins that maintain your skin’s youthfulness and promote cell turnover to minimize unwanted pigmentation.

Which skin concerns can anti-aging treatments address?

 

Anti-aging treatments can address a wide range of skin concerns, such as:

 

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Brown spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Dullness
  • Enlarged pores
  • Redness
  • Rough skin texture
  • Dryness

 

Anti-aging treatments can also tighten and firm sagging skin around the mid-face and jawline areas.

What are the types of anti-aging treatments?

 

The most popular anti-aging treatments The Collagen Bar offers include:

Neuromodulators

 

Neuromodulators, like Botox®, temporarily paralyze muscle movement to relax wrinkles and prevent the skin from creasing.

Dermal fillers

 

Dermal fillers, like Juvéderm®, are hyaluronic acid (HA) substances that your skin care specialist injects into your skin to restore lost volume.

Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy

 

IPL therapy uses multiple wavelengths of light to penetrate the dermis — the skin’s middle layer — without harming the surface layer. Unlike laser therapy, which uses a focused beam of light, IPL scatters light to address a wide range of skin concerns, like redness and brown spots.

Dermoelectroporation®

 

Dermoelectroporation, or DEP, is a groundbreaking treatment that breaks through the skin’s barrier to deliver rejuvenating products. DEP allows your specialist to introduce custom-tailored products into deeper layers of your skin without trauma.

Forma® RF

 

Forma RF is a non-invasive skin remodeling device that delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy deep into the dermal layers to reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds and sagging skin around the neck and jowls.

Morpheus8® RF microneedling

 

Morpheus8 RF microneedling combines collagen induction therapy with radiofrequency energy to stimulate deep collagen remodeling. The device can also target unwanted fat.
