Collagen is a protein found in our tendons, bones, muscles and skin. The body produces collagen naturally and in abundance throughout our youth, peaking at about age 25. From there, collagen production declines, even more so in women after menopause. Collagen also decreases with other factors, including exposure to the sun, smoking and sugar.
This decrease in collagen leads to wrinkles and sagging skin.
Collagen stimulators are one of nature’s miracles, rejuvenating the skin from the inside out and reversing the worst of the damage. Skin texture and hydration will be improved subtly and naturally, developing gradually over time and lasting for up to two years.
Safe and effective, it’s critical injections are made under local anaesthetic by a trained professional precisely in the layer of the skin where fibroblasts are found – these are the cells in the connective tissues where collagen is produced.
The professional team at Face by Rebecca use a gold standard collagen stimulator composed of small calcium based microspheres similar to those produced in the human body, suspended in a water based gel. The body gradually absorbs the gel and microspheres, leaving behind only the collagen that’s been naturally produced as a reaction to the stimulator
