Collagen Loss

What Is Collagen Loss?

Collagen and elastin are the two main components responsible for skin elasticity, texture, and appearance. Collagen loss is a phenomenon that occurs over time as we age. After 30, our collagen production decreases, causing facial volume loss and the development of uneven pigmentation. This process can lead to shallow cheeks, dark circles around the eyes, and skin laxity. Unfortunately, the aging process cannot be fully reversed, but certain treatments can offset collagen loss and improve your appearance.

Why Does Skin Laxity Occur?

Collagen loss increases with age and results in appearance changes that become more and more pronounced as time goes on. While losing firmness, it may seem like nothing is enough to prevent skin laxity and facial volume loss from occurring. As mentioned, this loss occurs naturally, but can also be exacerbated by environmental conditions. Frequent sun, dirt, and irritant exposure can all contribute to the acceleration of collagen loss and premature aging. If you’ve begun noticing significant changes in your appearance, then coming in for an aesthetic treatment at Bloom Med Spa may provide you with the solution you seek.

  • Laser – Collagen and elastin growth can be stimulated by laser therapy. This can improve the texture of the skin and reduce some of the visible signs of aging.
