Australian Skin Clinics 5 ways to boost your collagen for younger-looking skin


What is collagen?
Collagen is an essential protein that serves as one of the main building blocks in our skin. 


Collagen is a naturally occurring ingredient that is responsible for giving us healthy, plump and younger-looking skin. Australian Skin Clinic MacArthur Central has 5 ways to help boost your collagen for younger-looking skin. Want to know more? Speak to the friendly Australian Skin Clinic team today, located on the Lower Ground Level outside Woolworths Brisbane City. 

Why is collagen important?

When we talk about aging skin, we’re talking about a drop-off in our body’s production of collagen. As we get older, we naturally produce less collagen than in our youth which leads to wrinkles, fine lines, loss of volume and sagging skin. So how do we fight ageing? Don’t worry, we’ve got 5 ways you can boost your collagen for younger-looking skin.

1.  Wear your sunscreen – every day

Did you know UV exposure breaks down collagen? Now we’re not saying avoid the sun, but ensure that you slip, slop, and slap a high-quality 30+ (or preferably 50+) SPF sunscreen as part of your morning skincare routine. We recommend the Aesthetics Rx Ultra-Protection Sunscreen SPF50+ which will shield your skin and sit well under make-up. Don’t forget to reapply throughout the day. You can pick up this product in clinic on your next visit.

2.  Add Retinol to your routine

Retinol (or Vitamin A) has a long list of benefits including acne relief, skin rejuvenation and aging support. A derivative of vitamin A, Retinol works by protecting against the breakdown of collagen while boosting cell turnover to reveal new, fresher skin. Add an Aesthetics Rx A Serum or A Serum 1% to your night-time skin routine and keep consistent to see optimal results. Talk to one of our Australian Skin Clinics dermal experts about which products are right for you.

3. Micro-needling and Meso-needling

Micro-needling (or skin needling) uses tiny needles to prick the skin and create micro-channels that stimulate the healing response of the deeper layers and encourages new, collagen-rich tissue growth.

Enhance your micro-needling with a meso infusion. Meso-needling combines the benefits of micro-needling with specially formulated meso serums to infuse them deeply into the skin. Australian Skin Clinics offer three Meso-needling infusions targeting specific skin concerns – book a consult with one of our dermal technicians to discuss which Meso infusion is best for you and your skin.

4. Fractional Radio Frequency

Ever heard of Fractional Radio Frequency or Fractional RF? Well, this revolutionary treatment unites radio frequency and micro-needling to induce a powerful, natural healing response that stimulates skin tightening, cell regeneration and collagen production. This treatment works by creating heat in the superficial skin layers that break down old collagen and elastin fibres while the micro-needling stimulates cell regeneration, in a powerful 1, 2 collagen boosting combination.

5. PDO Mono Threads

Looking for more dramatic results? PDO mono threads are an innovative, non-surgical, TGA approved treatment that targets ageing skin including sagging and poor-quality skin from a lack of collagen. PDO mono threads work by stimulating the growth of collagen and elastin in desired areas across the face. PDO threads are single, smooth threads made from polydioxanone which are gently placed under the skin via small needles to create a tissue response that initiates an important growth factor release to encourage fibroblast activation. New collagen and elastin will begin producing around the threads helping tighten the skin, smooth out fine lines and wrinkles and improve sagging tissue leaving you with plump, more youthful-looking skin.

At Australian Skin Clinics, PDO Mono Thread treatments are performed only by our team of highly experienced medical professionals, including our doctors and registered nurses.
