Information On Collagen Based Skin Care Treatment

Skin care is steadily growing into a very large industry. The reason for this is that more and more people are becoming aware of the various products that can be purchased in the market to improve your skin. The market for skin care products is virtually a galore of anti-aging creams, anti-wrinkle creams, tightening and toning lotions, anti-cellulite creams, acne treatment creams, blackhead treatment creams, fairness creams and tanning lotions not to mention various soaps, cleansers and face washers promising spectacular results. But it doesn’t only stop at topical creams and lotions. With the vast increased interest in skin research, a whole new world of skin care treatments has opened up.

One such treatment is collagen treatment. Collagen is a protein that is present in the internal layers of the skin. Collagen working with elastin helps to keep the skin younger looking. Collagen is the protein that basically makes up the basic structure of the skin. In the formative years of any person the collagen is produced in large quantities. This is the reason why before you turn 20 you barely have any skin problems at all. Your skin is always fresh and clean. But once you turn 21 the production of collagen starts to reduce and the skin pays the price for that. What happens is that this protein is not replaced as much as it used to and to the skin begins to sag.

The treatment incorporates this protein and introduces it into the skin so that it can retain its original structure. There are a number of different ways that the protein can be introduced into the skin. The most expensive way for this is to use injections to introduce it directly into the skin. This way the skin structure gets a direct access to the protein and the protein can start the required repairs immediately. But this way is not feasible for everyone as the injections are very expensive. Also the effect wears off fast and therefore you need to make regular visits.

The best type f treatment in this category is to use creams and lotions that are packed with collagen so that the skin has a regular supply of the protein. The damage that is done on a daily basis is reversed regularly making it a better option. Also they are easily found in malls and stores and are phenomenally cheaper than the injections and thereby are a more popular among customers.
