Collagen is a protein found in all of our body’s tissue and organs. It’s a structural protein and its main function is to sustain tendons, cartilage, and skin. It provides firmness, integrity, and elasticity to these structures, which is why it’s so vital to skin.
As we get older, our body produces less collagen. This is what causes our skin to wrinkle and sag. Less collagen means the skin is less elastic and less firm. Luckily, it’s possible to decrease signs of aging by boosting collagen in the body.
Collagen can be boosted through supplements or through a number of treatments we offer here at AFYA, such as Forma, BodyFX, and Fractora. Contact us to learn how these treatments can help boost collagen in your skin and bring back youthful elasticity.
