5 Cosmetic Treatments That Help Reverse Age-Related Collagen Loss
Collagen is crucial to plump, youthful-looking skin. As we age, its production decreases, and its quality diminishes, leading to wrinkles and sagginess. Read on to learn about options to increase your collagen production and refresh your appearance.

Collagen plays a vital role in our bodies, affecting our appearance. As we age, its decrease can bring unwelcome changes, including wrinkles and sagging skin. The good news is there are a variety of treatments that can help you still look and feel your best.

Our highly skilled team at Cascade Medspa & Laser Centre in Baxter, Minnesota, brings over 15 years of experience working with patients to meet their aesthetic goals. Whether you want to rejuvenate your skin, hair, or body, we provide state-of-the-art care using FDA-approved devices and products.


At about 30 percent, collagen is the largest amount of protein in our bodies. It provides structure, strength, and support as the main component of our skin, bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and other connective tissues. It is also located in blood vessels, organs, and the lining of the intestines.

Collagen loss

As we age, collagen production decreases, and existing collagen deteriorates more quickly. Its quality is also lower than in our early years.

 With these diminished levels, our bodies undergo changes that affect our health and appearance. You may experience issues with your muscles, joints, blood, and digestion. Your skin also tends to become wrinkled and saggy, and lose that plump, youthful look.

Cosmetic treatments for collagen loss

Fortunately, there are a number of treatments available that can help support your skin's strength and resiliency. They work by increasing the production of collagen and elastin, a protein that helps maintain your skin's elasticity. Examples include:


Microneedling works by using miniature needles to prick the skin, which in turn stimulates the production of collagen. It can also help reduce acne, scars, dark spots, and more.


During a dermaplaning procedure, a scalpel gently scrapes off dead skin cells and peach fuzz. This encourages collagen generation and leaves your skin smoother and brighter.

Diamond Glow® Dermalinfusion

During this treatment, a diamond-tipped wand removes dead skin cells, deepens clean pores, and hydrates your skin with specialized serums. It makes your skin feel younger and softer and helps with the production of more collagen.

Light pulses

Collagen can also be increased, and skin imperfections can be improved through treatment with high-energy pulses of light. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and Broadband Light (BBL) are two technologies.

Laser therapy

Profractional laser therapy encourages collagen production to decrease sagging skin and can help treat blemishes, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and more.
