The Laser-Collagen Connection: Exploring the Newest Trend in Anti-Ageing

Did you know that your collagen takes a 1% dip every year? This makes collagen loss one of the top causes of wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, and dullness – pretty much every skin concern we’ve all encountered at some point.

And this is exactly why laser treatments are all the rage these days. They’re the latest craze in skincare because they’re known for cranking up your collagen levels, giving them a boost to make sure your youthful glow sticks around even longer.

If you’re thinking of boosting your skincare routine with laser treatments, let’s chat about how these can do amazing things for you and your skin.

Spilling the tea on collagen!

Ah, collagen…you hear about it everywhere! Dermatologists and skin gurus on TikTok and YouTube all swear by it for keeping your skin looking young. When we talk about fighting wrinkles and improving skin texture, boosting collagen is the go-to solution.

And it’s the talk of the town for a reason!

Collagen is like this support structure for your skin, making it an essential protein for skin health. It’s like a scaffolding that keeps your skin firm and elastic. It provides strength and structure, helping to maintain the skin’s smoothness and youthful appearance.

As we age, our bodies naturally produce less collagen, leading to wrinkles, sagging, and a loss of skin elasticity. That’s why maintaining a healthy collagen level is crucial for having glowing and radiant skin. By promoting the production of collagen, whether through skincare or certain treatments, you can help keep your skin looking plump, firm, and more resilient to the effects of ageing and environmental factors.

How exactly do laser treatments work? 

Laser treatments do their magic using a method called selective photothermolysis. Sounds a mouthful, but it’s really just using light to focus on water and pigments in your skin, creating controlled heat. This heat sets off a series of natural reactions, like waking up fibroblasts or the cells responsible for making collagen.  

Pro tip: One secret to a stunning rejuvenation is combining laser treatment with bioremodelling. Bioremodelling is great for boosting collagen in your skin, and when paired with a laser treatment, it’s like supercharging collagen!

Types of Laser Treatments for Collagen Stimulation

  1. Fractional Laser Resurfacing (popularly known as FRAXEL)

It’s pretty much similar to the Morpheus 8 which uses radiofrequency (RF) microneedling technology.

This treatment gives your skin a makeover with the help of laser technology. Instead of treating your entire skin surface at once, it targets tiny, fractionated areas. This approach allows the laser to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin, promoting the growth of new, healthy tissue during the healing process.

The treatment addresses skin issues such as wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, sun damage, and uneven skin tone. It aims to stimulate collagen production, leading to improved skin texture, tone, and overall appearance.

  1. Non-Ablative Laser Treatments

Non-ablative laser treatments like the Fotona 5D laser treatments are cosmetic procedures designed to enhance the appearance of your skin. Unlike some more intense treatments, these lasers don’t remove the top layer of your skin. Instead, they work beneath the surface to gently wake up your skin cells to produce more collagen. This contributes to diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in a radiant and revitalised skin appearance.

The following are key treatments that can be done using the Fotona 5D laser:

  • TightSculpting: a unique dual-wavelength, non-invasive laser treatment for sculpting and skin tightening on all body areas.
  • Acne and Acne Scar Revision: improves the appearance of problematic acne scars, treats severe acne, and reduces acne inflammation
  • Fotona 4D: a non-surgical face-lifting procedure resulting in a rejuvenated, lifted, and natural-looking appearance
  • Fotona 4D Men: an innovative form of laser skin resurfacing and rejuvenation tailored specifically for male skin
  • Permanent Hair Reduction: provides  effective hair reduction that is safe to use for all skin types 
  • Pigmented Lesions: a safe, non-invasive procedure that improves complexion and reduces pigmentation concerns like nevi (moles) and vascular lesions to ephelides, and sunspots.
  • Scar Revision: improves the appearance of acne scars by lightly resurfacing damaged skin while stimulating the production of new collagen
  • Skin Resurfacing: precisely targets skin imperfections, leaving surrounding healthy skin untouched, while the generated heat stimulates the production of new collagen
  • Vascular Lesions: safely treats vascular lesions like spider veins, angiomas, port-wine stains, etc.
  • Endovascular Treatments: targets the inside of a vein, making it shrink and seal shut, allowing surrounding healthy veins to restore normal blood flow to the treated area
  • Hyperhidrosis or Excessive Sweating (including but not limited to armpits, hands, and feet): lowers sweat gland activity and reduces the production of sweat
  • Laser Lipolysis or Fat Dissolving: removes excess body fat by using laser to rapidly dissolve excess fat in target areas such as the thighs, abdomen, arms, neck, and parts of the face
  • LipLase: plumps up the lips resulting in a volumised, fuller, and well-defined lips without injectables
  • SmoothEye: provides immediate tightness and firmness to the periocular area or the skin around our eyes
  • HAIRestart: treats hair loss disorders through hair growth stimulation
  • TensorTight: tightens crepey skin by stimulating collagen production and remodeling
  • LineLase: softens and flattens the appearance of stretch marks while improving the overall appearance of the skin
  • OrangeLase: tightens skin, increases its elasticity, and reduces the appearance of cellulite
  • VectorLift: elevates the eyebrow tail and tightens the upper eyelids for a more youthful look

One last thought: When you think about laser treatments, it’s important to consider individualised plans. This is because everyone’s skin and collagen levels are different, so the treatment should be based on your specific skin type and concerns.

Another good thing about laser treatments is that they are long-term investments. They help your skin make collagen for several months, giving you longer-lasting results. One more plus is that these treatments usually only require a little downtime. You won’t need much time to recover, making it easier for people with busy lives to get that stunning glow without disrupting their routines.
