How to Boost Collagen Levels  for Healthier Looking Skin
The body produces less collagen as people age, causing wrinkles and stiff joints.

Collagen is an important protein, which the body needs to keep the skin looking young and healthy. There are some great natural and non-invasive ways to boost collagen, but there are also several myths surrounding it. People may want to find out about the many options to boost their collagen levels and what treatments may be available to stimulate collagen for the skin especially in the face and neck.

When collagen levels are high, the skin is soft, smooth, and firm. Collagen helps the skin cells renew and repair themselves. Collagen also helps keep the skin moist. Therefore, collagen has been a common ingredient in skin care for years, but many people are unaware of the fact that collagen is too big of a molecule to penetrate the dermal layers of the skin.

Naturally Boost Collagen
• Hyaluronic acid
• Vitamin C
• Aloe Vera Gel
• Antioxidants
• Retinol

Are there Medical, Non-Invasive ways to increase collagen and reduce wrinkles?
New technology has led to new ways to stimulate and renew collagen in the skin. Scientists have found that if heat is applied at the correct depth and temperature collagen can have a remarkable change in its structure and will stimulate collagen production.

One machine on the market that has had great results for its patients is called Exilis. The machines hand piece uses focused thermal energy (heat) energy to disrupt the collagen fibers deep within skin. The aim of treatment is to raise the temperature of the underlying skin surface to 40-42c or between 104 to 107.6*F.

There is no heat produced at the tip of the applicator, the heat is produced within the skin by using radio-controlled frequency. The patient will feel a warming sensation on the skin.

Collagen has a triple helix structure, which begins to unravel when affected by heat. Over time the healing process encourages the production of new collagen fibers, smoothing the skin and reducing the appearance of deep wrinkles and fine lines. The new collagen fibroblast helps to tighten loose or slightly sagging skin, giving an overall more youthful appearance, and the collagen network is strengthened and stimulated, improving skin texture and laxity. Treatments are normally 10 to 14 days apart, with 4 to 6 treatments for skin tightening.

Medical treatments that are More Invasive than Radio Frequency.
A procedure that has had excellent results is the term called Micro-Needling with RF (Radio Frequency). An older treatment was nick named the Dracula face lift, that some facilities still do, but this is being replaced with newer technologies.

The newer Micro-Needling process uses a computer-controlled procedure that controls the depth of needles and then pulses a radio frequency in the surface of the skin. The Micro-Needling patient has the option to select either Hyaluronic serum or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) infused into the skin during the Micro-Needling procedure. This process will usually produce better results than the non-invasive RF procedure. The disadvantage is the cost and there is some addition down time. Numbing creams are used with the micro-needling but there can be some discomfort.

Be Proactive About Treatment
Early intervention will slow the process and allow you to look your best. Starting from the age of 20 we lose 1% of our collagen every year. By the age of 60 we have 40% less facial collagen to work with. Hydro facials can be very beneficial by helping to exfoliate the dead skin cells from the face. As we age the process of skin exfoliating slows and the hydro facial helps mother nature to expose the fresh underlying layers as the older layers die and need to be removal. We have just ordered two new Hydro facial machines and anticipate these to be operational soon. We also have a facial skin analysis machine and offer a free skin analysis that can predict the age of your skin.

Nava Med is offering 50% off the first skin tightening treatment for both men and women, and a free facial skin analysis.
