Is the reality of gravity setting in? How has your skin changed? As we age, we start to get more and more signs of collagen breakdown and laxity of the skin. Fine lines and wrinkles appear and skin can start to look crepey and weathered. Collagen is a popular word here at Charmed Medispa and healthy collagen is the core aspect of making your skin look and feel vibrant and youthful. How can you rebuild collagen? How can you turn back the clock?
The most important aspect of collagen health is making sure that you don’t abuse your collagen with exposure, tanning, smoking and an unhealthy lifestyle. Preservation is key. There are 28 types of collagen in the body and types I-V make up the majority. Type I collagen is most abundant in your skin and is packed with woven fibers that is strong and flexible. This type of collagen degrades over time. Collagen is also essential for blood clotting, healing and even the nervous system. So it’s really important to maintain healthy, robust collagen in your body.
