We have all got a set amount of Collagen, Elastin, Hyaluronic Acid in our skin around the age of 20 years. As we go through life, sun exposure, environmental pollutant, hormones, bad lifestyle, stress and aging causes depletion of these three substances in our skin, causing it to slowly lose its bounciness, elasticity and volume. This process is also described as elastosis or dermatochalasis, solar elastosis.
There are 3 classes of injectable treatments that can reverse this decline in Collagen, Elastin and Hyaluronic Acid giving back the younger, smoother, bouncier skin free of imperfections.
- Hyaluronic Acid based skin booster injections are once again divided into two classes crosslinked HA injections like Restylane Vital, , Juvederm Volite, Profhilo, and no crosslinked HA injections like Teosyal Redensity1 and Sunekos injections which are mixed with peptides and factors that help with skin repair.
- Hyperdilute Radiesse, Sculptra, Ellanse are types of injections were the molecules are injected into the skin and then the skin produces collagen as a reaction to these molecules
- Growth Factor Injections that utilise either Platelets or Fat derived stem cells.
There is however no single treatment that has all the answers; improving the skin collagen and hydration always necessitates medical skin creams and sun protection.
There are other modalities can also be harnessed like energy based devices like Morpheus8 or Fractional CO2 Lasers amongst many.
