What is Collagen?

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. It is found in the bones, muscles, tendons and skin. It makes up about 70-80% of our skin. As we age, our collagen production decreases and this is what causes wrinkles and ‘thinning skin.

Why is Collagen Important?

Collagen helps support the skin to keep it looking youthful. As we age, collagen and elastin production decreases, leading to skin laxity. This, along with repetitive movement, contributes to fine lines and wrinkles.

Things that cause collagen production to decrease faster:

  • Smoking
  • Diet
  • Sleep
  • UV rays
  • Pollutants 

How Can I Stimulate Collagen?

  • Radio-Frequency Microneedling (Morpheus8/Fractora)
  • Radiesse Injections
  • Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
  • Chemical Skin Peels
  • Medical Grade Skin Care

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

For the month of October, we will be donating 50% of all proceeds from DYSPORTâ„¢ treatments to The Waterloo Wellington Breast Centre at Grand River Hospital.

Dysport is an FDA-approved cosmetic injectable that temporarily reduces facial wrinkles and fine lines by relaxing specific muscles. It’s a quick and non-surgical way to achieve smoother, more natural, youthful-looking skin, with noticeable results within days.
