Collegen is the chief structural protein found in connective tissue, and promotes structure in our faces. As we age, our collagen supply diminishes, resulting in sagging or hollow looking skin. Our providers at BOYD Beauty Birmingham and Ann Arbor offer a selection of treatments that help to build new collagen, resulting in a refreshed, youthful facial appearance. Check out these treatments, and what they can do for you.

Silhouette InstaLift

Silhoutette InstaLift is a minimally invasive procedure that lifts sagging mid-facial skin, rejuvenating the face. This procedure gently lifts the deepest layers of the skin with restorable sutures. Treatments require no general anesthesia and only last around 45 minutes. The sutures will be absorbed into the body over time, stimulating the production of collagen over the next three months. Results are immediate and will continue to progress as the new collagen is formed.

Sculptra

Sculptra is an injectable filler made up of poly-L-lactic acid to minimize the appearance of nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and fine lines and creases in the chin. It works beneath the skin, stimulating the body’s natural collagen production. Most patients require three sessions spaced four to six weeks apart for optimal results. Results from Sculptra are relatively long-lasting, often lasting up to two years.

Ultherapy

Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to penetrate the deepest layers of the skin, correcting sagging on the forehead and jowls, a poorly defined jawline or loose skin on the neck. This ultrasound energy triggers the body to produce new collagen, resulting in overall skin tightening. This response can continue for three months, and overall improvement can last for a year or longer.
