Collagen is the building block of life. Without collagen, you may begin to look older and more weathered than you wish. Because natural collagen production in the body starts to decrease when men and women are in their 30s, early intervention can be crucial. Luckily, there are cosmetic treatments that can give you a little bit of help to boost the collagen in your body, and that’s exactly what Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Center is here for! We offer quick, safe, and effective treatments that are designed to increase collagen production to leave you with a complexion you can be proud to show off!

At Dermacare San Diego, we offer microneedling and red light collagen therapy to promote natural collagen production and enhance your facial aesthetic. 

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that is designed to stimulate collagen for a clear, youthful complexion. With this procedure, your skincare professional will use a handheld device to create dozens of punctures (micro-injuries) skin in the treatment area. This process causes the body to heal itself, and one of the ways it does this is by producing more collagen in the skin. Collagen is a natural protein that is responsible for the strength and overall health of your skin, so, with more collagen, you can expect to have stronger and more flawless skin.

What Is Red Light Collagen Therapy?

As an alternative, red light collagen therapy is a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure that also increases the production of collagen to give you a fresh appearance. This treatment uses light energy to reach all three layers of the skin (the epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis) to work its magic. It triggers the body’s natural healing response, which translates to an increased production of collagen and elastin, which both help to provide you with a younger and firmer appearance in the treatment area. This treatment also promotes blood flow to deliver nutrients that may have been missing or stagnant for a while. 

How Do I Know If I’m a Candidate?

Even though these two treatments work differently, they each can achieve many of the same results. Having clear, beautiful skin is something many people strive for, and undergoing either microneedling or red light therapy can help treat certain skin conditions that may make you feel self-conscious. Some of these skin concerns include:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Sagging skin
  • Poor skin texture and tone
  • Age spots
  • Sun damage
  • Stretch marks
  • Dark spots
  • Pigmentation irregularities
  • Acne scarring
