What is Collagen?
Collagen is a protein – a large biological molecule – that makes up about 25 to 35% of all the proteins in our body. It’s mostly found in connective tissue; things like tendons, muscle and skin. The word collagen comes from Greek and means as much as “glue producing.” Collagen is what makes our skin elastic, firm and, well, pretty! Our bodies naturally produce collagen, but as we get older this amount becomes less and less, declining with about 1% a year. Things like smoking, sun damage and a bad diet dramatically increase this number.
What is a Collagen Facial?
A collagen facial is a skin care treatment that uses collagen protein to revitalize the skin. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein that is found in the skin, tissues and bones; in the skin, it is found in the lower dermal layers, and is responsible for maintaining skin structure and strength. A collagen facial attempts to retard the aging process by replenishing the skin’s natural proteins by external application.
Our collagen facial uses collagen boosting products rather than creams that contain collagen, collagen in the skin actually increases, especially with repeated treatments. The exfoliation beforehand removes the outer dead layers of your skin, which helps it absorb the collagen booster cream better. The massage and moisturization give you a more even and glowing complexion. Our Firming Mask helps with deeper penetration of the Collagen and gives you an instant firming effect. Another one of the collagen facial benefits is that the procedure isn’t painful. Effects are immediate, which makes it a perfect facial to do before an event or photoshoot!
