Spring is a time of renewal in nature and in your personal care. Along with a fresh haircut, hair color, new makeup and lighter, brighter wardrobe, it’s also time to refresh and renew your skin.
To achieve your most supple, smooth skin tone and texture, you need to build collagen—the main structural protein that gives your skin volume and keeps it smooth. Women start to lose collagen in their 20s, which causes your skin to lose fullness and show texture, wrinkles and other signs of aging. So starting in your late 20s, you should begin using products and services that enhance collagen production.
Treating Collagen Loss with Dermaplaning
The best way to combat collagen loss is through great skin products and facial treatments that create cell turnover. Treatments can stimulate collagen production through safe, micro injury to the skin, which improves skin tone and texture.
One of our favorite services to boost collagen production is with dermaplaning. At Sanctuary Salonspa, we offer it as a stand-alone service or an add-on to any facial or treatment.
So, how does it work?
Dermaplaning is a quick and painless scraping of facial skin to remove the top layer of dead skin cells, peach-fuzz, and other debris, which promotes collagen production. More collagen results in less prominent fine lines and wrinkles. Regular dermaplaning can keep collagen levels higher between treatments, so your skin always has a healthy glow. You’ll see an instant boost in smoothness and a more visibly radiant appearance after dermaplaning.
LED Red Light Therapy
Another option to encourage collagen production is via LED red light therapy using the FDA-cleared DrX SpectraLite™ device. We offer this therapy in our Sanctuary Age Erase Facial and Sanctuary Stress Recovery Facial with masks that provide a safe concentration of red or blue light to stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin. The result? A reduction in wrinkles, sun spots and redness, while blue light kills acne-causing bacteria to reduce breakouts.
