Collagen And Wrinkles

Collagen and wrinkles are interrelated in a very important way.

But what are collagens?

Collagen is a protein that comprises 80% of our skin. It is the main structural protein of our skin and one of the main structural proteins of our body. It is a very important component of our skin.

Its elastic fibers enable the skin to stretch and recoil, which is the genesis of the term “elasticity”.

As collagen and the elastic fibers get damaged by the sun, our skin sags, may turn color and generally doesn’t have as good an appearance.  Exposure to the sun for longer periods of time causes lot of damage to the collagen in the skin.

Sunlight activates genes that are already in our skin and causes them to function in an abnormal way, producing damaged-looking skin.This damaged looking skin, is manifested in the form of wrinkles and aged skin.

This phenomena however, can be resolved with the help of skin treatments like- : Laser Skin Resurfacing, Fractional Laser Resurfacing, IPL, Radiofrequency Rejuvenation, Plasma Skin Regeneration or Injectables/ Dermal Fillers.
