Has your skin lost its youthful plumpness and firmness? Are fine lines and wrinkles starting to develop? These signs could all indicate a decline in the amount of collagen present in the skin. Collagen is an important structural protein in the skin, and when levels decrease, the skin starts to show signs of age. But how can you stimulate collagen growth for better skin.
Why your skin needs collagen
Collagen is a protein that is naturally produced by the body, and contributes to the fullness and plumpness of the skin. It provides the necessary support the skin needs to remain firm and healthy. However, when collagen diminishes, the skin loses its youthful appearance.
How can you stimulate collagen?
It is possible to stimulate collagen production with laser treatments. The Halo hybrid fractional laser is an innovative technology that combines both ablative and non-ablative energy.
How the Halo laser stimulates collagen
The non-ablative energy targets the dermal layer of the skin. It creates microscopic treatment zones that trigger a healing response in which collagen is created to repair the treated areas. The increased collagen makes the skin plumper and firmer. This reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and restores younger-looking skin.
What to expect after treatment
The skin will be slightly red and swollen immediately after treatment with the Halo laser, but this should resolve within 24 hours. The skin will look refreshed and rejuvenated within 2-3 weeks, and improvements will continue over the following months as new collagen develops.
