It’s all about Collagen!
Posted on March 22, 2016 by Dr. Blume in Blog
Starting around the age of 30, we begin to lose collagen at a rate of 1% a year due to natural aging. Certain factors exacerbate the slowdown of our precious protein’s production, such as the sun! The harmful UV rays weaken the skin’s collagen and elastin, and the skin loses its ability to bounce back from injury.
There are ways to rebuild lost collagen and slow down the aging process:
- Use sunblock every day
- Stop smoking
- Drink plenty of water
The Blume Skin Centre offers several skin treatments to assist in building back collagen. Our most popular treatment is VoluDerm; a minimally invasive treatment that uses radio frequency to create dermal heating with fine micro-needles to gently resurface the epidermis and thickening of the dermis. The treatment is great for: dermal volume, wrinkle and fine line reduction, skin resurfacing, and tightening and firming with added improved skin texture.
There is no downtime and the treatment is not painful (a win-win)! We recommend an initial series of 3 treatments, and 1-2 treatments a year for maintenance. Call us at 480-699-7999 to schedule an appointment or book online here.
Plus, with your first VoluDerm treatment, you will receive a free Revision Skincare Hydrating Serum!
