5 Collagen Treatments and Procedures That Actually Work


5 Collagen Treatments and Procedures That Actually Work

Collagen production decreases as we get older, leading to visible signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin.

While a magic one-shot solution to restore lost collagen doesn’t exist, there are effective treatments and procedures available that will boost collagen production, and regenerate the skin while improving its overall appearance.

With so many collagen-stimulating treatments out there, it can be challenging to know which ones are worth your time and money. In this article, we will explore some of the best to clear things up!

1. Ultherapy

Ultherapy is an excellent collagen treatment for the face. It is the first and only FDA-cleared and Health Canada-approved non-surgical procedure that tightens and lifts the skin.

It works by harnessing focused ultrasound energy to stimulate and kickstart the body’s natural healing process to produce collagen. A huge advantage of this non-invasive collagen-boosting treatment is that it can precisely target specific depths of the skin through ultrasound imaging. This helps identify those areas that need more collagen growth.

Ultherapy is an effective skin tightening treatment that offers a natural and gradual lift to certain areas of aging skin, particularly on the face, neck, and chest. Only one treatment is required and there is no downtime.

2. Microneedling

When considering collagen treatments for the face, microneedling will always be part of the conversation. Also known as collagen induction therapy (CIT), microneedling has emerged as one of the most popular collagen-stimulating treatments—and for good reason.

This collagen treatment is quick, minimally invasive, and effective at improving skin texture, acne scars, and enlarged pores, while promoting overall skin rejuvenation.

Microneedling works by creating tiny injuries in the skin with fine needles. This triggers the skin’s natural healing process and stimulates collagen production. Although it may sound scary, the treatment is much more comfortable than it seems, especially when done by a professional.

You can expect to see stunning results starting within four to six weeks!

3. Morpheus8

Speaking of collagen induction therapy, Morpheus8 is a bit of an enhanced version.

Morpheus8 is a subdermal adipose remodeling device (SARD) that combines microneedling technology and radiofrequency (RF) energy. Like conventional microneedling, tiny needles create microinjuries in the skin, while RF simultaneously creates an additional controlled thermal injury to maximize collagen production and remodeling.

This collagen treatment works for the face and body and, unlike other RF microneedling devices, comes with a unique “burst mode” that allows it to penetrate deeper and treat multiple skin layers at once.

Morpheus8 has earned glowing reviews as a fantastic collagen treatment for the face, particularly if you want smooth skin that looks firmer and tighter without injectables or surgery. It can also be used to target enlarged pores and acne scars, as well as skin laxity—especially when combined with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy!

4. Radiesse®

Collagen treatments for the face also come in the form of injectables.

Radiesse® is a regenerative dermal filler that adds volume and provides definition to areas of the face that have lost volume, developed wrinkles, and generally lost their youthful structure as the result of the aging process.

This filler contains non-toxic calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a gel that, when injected into the skin, provide immediate volume and lift. As such, Radiesse® has become a popular choice to restore facial volume, smooth out wrinkles and folds, enhance facial contours, and improve overall skin health.

Radiesse® dermal filler also stimulates collagen production over time, meaning it has regenerative effects that deliver longer-lasting results compared to traditional hyaluronic acid fillers.

5. Sculptra®

Similar to Radiesse®, Sculptra® is a dermal filler that plumps skin while stimulating collagen synthesis over time. This injectable treatment contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible substance that is gradually absorbed by the body. Sculptra® triggers collagen production, leading to progressive volume restoration and improved skin texture over several months.

This collagen-boosting treatment takes around 30-45 minutes. The results are often visible within three to six months and can last for more than two years!

Boost Collagen Production with Treatments that Work

Collagen loss can be addressed with cutting-edge aesthetic treatments—assuming you’re being treated by an expert. Even the most effective collagen treatments can fail when performed by an inexperienced clinician. Experienced aestheticians and injectors are able to properly assess your skin and determine the best treatment plan for you.
