Collagen is the building block of your skin and other connecting tissues.  When your collagen breaks down, your skin loses laxity, leaving you looking older.  There are several ways to build collagen!

One way we do this is by utilizing fillers that get your body to gradually build your own collagen over time. Sculptra & Radiesse both do this! This method is great, because you gradually plump & firm, so you don’t look drastically different immediately.  Additionally, you’re building your own collagen, so the long term results are really impressive.  We like to say fillers like these give new meaning to “the WOW factor”!

You can also help with your collagen production on a daily basis! Drinkable collagen is the latest & greatest way to stimulate your body’s production of this little wonder protein. Adding collagen to your diet can do so many things for your health and wellness.  First of all, your skin & hair will thrive! It’ll improve skin laxity, cellulite & stretch marks! You’ll also notice an improvement in joint pain, metabolism, leaky gut syndrome, muscle mass, & liver health.

We love the Image Skincare product called Yana.  It is a daily collagen shot that’s highly concentrated with a “proprietary blend of collagen peptides, ceramides, antioxidants and vitamins helps to restore the essential elements skin needs to regain and maintain its youthful appearance.” It increase your skin’s firmness, reduces wrinkle depth & restores hydration. You’ll see a noticeable difference in just 30 days! So get on the path to radiant skin… from  within!
