Collagen Lift & Contour Treatment in Bristol from HL Cosmetics
What is Collagen?
Collagen is the main structural protein found in our skin and other connective tissues and it is now widely used in a purified form for cosmetic surgical treatments to replace lost collagen which we naturally lose as we age.
What are the benefits of Collagen?
Collagen is essential to our health and you will hear a lot now about its many benefits and how it really is the must-have in your beauty regime, all according to the beauty industry. It can now be found in lots of beauty products, including creams, powders, pills and cosmetics.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, in your muscles, skin, blood, bones, cartilage, and ligaments. Collagen:
- promotes skin elasticity
- holds together your bones and muscles
- protects your organs
- provides structure to joints and tendons
The good news is that our bodies naturally produce collagen, however, the bad news is that as we age our natural production of it slows down.
By using products and having treatments which contain collagen it can help reduce and slow down the signs of ageing including skin plumpness and fine lines and wrinkles.
Smoking, sun exposure, and an unhealthy diet as well as some health conditions slow down our production of collagen and add to the ageing process. As the collagen in our skin depletes you start to see wrinkles and sagging skin appear. As your cartilage weakens and deteriorates with age, you may start to feel stiff with achy joints and muscles. For some people, taking collagen orally can help to reduce this pain and alleviate the symptoms of arthritis.
What happens when the collagen in our skin reduces?
As we get older we start to lose the natural fullness in our skin and this ageing process can be quickened by genetic, environmental or lifestyle factors. Unfortunately, the loss of fullness in our skin and the natural production of collagen can lead to sagging skin, wrinkles and hollows in the face. As the cheeks sag and lose volume, they drop from their usual high position near the eyes to a lower position in the face. This results in a square appearance, which is in contrast to the youthful triangle shaped face appearance.
What happens to our skin as we age?
Smoking, stress, poor diet and exposure to the sun all accelerate the skin ageing process. Out of all of these factors, exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UVA and UVB radiation from the sun) has the most detrimental effect and almost always results in lines, wrinkles, sagging, loss of elasticity and dehydrated skin.
Young skin contains collagen which gives it volume, flexibility and strength. As we age our skin’s natural collagen breaks down and results in the loss of facial volume and elasticity.
How does the Collagen Lift & Contour Treatment work?
The Radiesse® Product stimulates the skin’s production of collagen to restore volume in the skin, smooth away wrinkles and improve skin quality in the long-term.
Radiesse® is an injectable dermal filler that temporarily adds volume which smooths moderate to severe facial wrinkles and gives an immediate lifting and firming effect to the skin. It stimulates the production of new collagen, which results in, increased volume in your skin that may last a year or more for many patients. Once injected, Radiesse® immediately provides volume and lift and because of the calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product it reduces the signs of ageing. Both the gel and the microspheres are naturally broken down by the body, normally over 12 months and is therefore not a permanent change.
Radiesse® is becoming the favourite injectable filler of many patients and medical professionals. Individual results are dependent on age, skin type, indications, lifestyle, metabolism and, of course, the area treated.
With just one syringe, many patients obtain an immediate and long-lasting youthful appearance. A Radiesse® Collagen Lift & Contour Treatment is simple, quick, comfortable and convenient and provides immediately visible results that last.
