Collagen Stimulation

the art of aesthetic assessment

As we age, we lose collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid in our skin, and this leads to the formation of lines, wrinkles, and folds, as well as loose skin. There are several ways to stimulate collagen formation, including the utilization of injectables, PDO Threads, micro-needling, and topical skin care regimens. A multi-faceted approach is ideal for preventing and correcting the loss of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid in the skin.

Our skin relies on the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid to keep it healthy, firm, and voluminous. As we age, we lose these components, leading to lines, wrinkles, and loose skin. Stimulating collagen can be done in a number of ways, including PDO threads, micro-needling, injectables, and topical skincare. At Youthology Medical, our practice focuses on a multi-faceted approach to help patients prevent and correct the loss of collagen in the skin.

We can help stimulate collagen through multiple modalities. Below you can find the list of collagen stimulate treatments available at our practice:

SCULPTRA

Sculptra is a dermal filler that acts as an alternative anti-aging treatment to skin creams and fat injections. It stimulates the production of collagen, an important structural protein found within our connective tissues. It works to promote collagen growth through the use of poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic, biodegradable compound, using the body’s natural processes to remove lines and promote collagen development which restores a youthful appearance. Three monthly treatments are recommended to achieve desired results, with occasional touch-ups to keep it long-lasting.

PDO THREADS

PDO (Polydioxanone) Threads are medical-grade, dissolvable sutures that are used to induce collagen production in areas such as the face, neck, butt, knees, and arms. Our practice works with MINT Threads, a minimally invasive absorbable thread that’s popular in the Korean beauty industry. The suture material is often used in orthopedic and cardiovascular surgeries and depends on your beauty goals. These threads can be used to lift, volumize, and structure areas of the skin for immediate results.

At our office, we strive to provide our clients with minimally invasive services at an affordable price.

Mint threads can help:
  • Smoothen and enhance lines
  • Reduce the appearance of wrinkles
  • Tighten and reposition sagging skin
  • Restore youthful contours
  • Ease signs of aging

In the past several years, Dr. Grobman or your licensed and qualified provider has studied PDO Threads, with the amazing support of MINT™ trainers, and MINT™ online webinars. Dr. Grobman or your licensed and qualified provider is thrilled and honored to be a member of the MINT™ Training and Key Opinion Leader team!

MICRONEEDLING WITH THE MD PEN™

Collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedling, uses tiny needles to gradually remove enlarged pores, stretch marks, and acne scars, promoting the skin’s ability to produce collagen and creating an incredible effect on your skin’s health and beauty. By interacting with the top layer of skin, this procedure uses the body’s natural healing process to regenerate the surface layer with fresh, new skin. At our practice, we incorporate microneedling using mechanical techniques with the MD Pen. The MD Pen provides a lower downtime and has less photosensitivity than laser treatments.

RADIESSE®

Radiesse® stimulates the body’s natural collagen using Calcium Hydroxyapatite. This filler helps volumizes and remove fine lines along the face and hands. Calcium hydroxyapatite is biosynthetically produced for treatment, but the compound is found naturally in human bones. In addition, when diluted with saline, known as hyperdilute Radiesse, it can be used (off-label) to induce collagen production by the skin and tighten the skin in several areas of the body, including the neck, arms, legs, and buttocks.

SculptrA®

Sculptra is a dermal filler that stimulates the production of collagen which is the framework for tissue structure indicated for wrinkles and volume loss around the mouth and nasal folds.  Off label, Sculptra has also been used extensively on other parts of the body including the butt for the popular and well known non surgical butt lift.  Results from Sculptra collagen induction therapy can last up to many years!

pdo threads

PDO (Polydioxanone) Threads are medical-grade thread or suture material that is used to help induce a collagen framework and lift in areas of the body where the structure has started to break down including the face, neck, butt, knees, and arms.  Choosing the right type of thread can either help to create lift while others can help to provide volume and structure. 

At our office, we strive to provide our clients with minimally invasive services at an affordable price.

Mint threads can help:
  • Smoothen and enhance lines
  • Reduce the appearance of wrinkles
  • Tighten and reposition sagging skin
  • Restore youthful contours

Microneedling with the MD Pen™

Collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedling, is nearly painless and has been shown to have incredible effect on the health and beauty of your skin. The concept is simple, by inflicting thousands of imperceptible injuries to the top layer of skin, the body is encouraged to produce additional collagen and regenerate the surface layer with fresh, unblemished skin. It’s no surprise it’s becoming one of the most popular beauty treatments around.

Microneedling is essentially performing the same process accomplished by using lasers, but does so without the application of heat or light. The process is instead mechanical, and produces some amazing anti-aging effects by encouraging the body to rejuvenate itself. Additionally it has a lower downtime and doesn’t lead to the same photo-sensitivity as can be experienced with the laser treatments.
