Why collagen stimulation ‘laser’ for facial rejuvenation?

Posted: 9:15 a.m. Monday, Oct. 6, 2014

By Anita Mandal, M.D.

Question: How can a laser that only stimulates collagen make a noticeable difference in my aging face?

Answer: Collagen makes up 75 percent of the skin’s protein. It is found in bone, tendon, ligaments and internal organs, giving tissue strength and support. In fact, collagen has a tensile strength greater than steel. Without collagen, our bodies would literally fall apart.
Our skin’s strength, durability and smooth, plump youthful glow are all due to collagen, which is continuously produced our entire life to repair and replace damaged collagen. This recycling of old collagen declines with age, causing wrinkles, aged skin, skin laxity and sagging.
While sunscreens and skin care help, more aggressive collagen stimulation is needed to compensate for the loss due to aging.
Traditional chemical peels and CO2 lasers can speed up collagen production but have downtime. Unlike aggressive lasers, Ulthera® and Infini™ “lasers” increase collagen production with no downtime.
Compared to Ulthera, Infini targets collagen at specific skin depths. This is important because collagen breakdown in fine lines and wrinkles occurs at a different tissue depth than that in sagging facial or neck skin. Infini also has many more coagulation points associated with increased collagen production than Ultherapy®.
Taking care of your collagen is essential. Infini can effectively and precisely promote collagen growth. Consultation with a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon is the first step in determining your facial rejuvenation needs.
