Collagen: Is It Really Necessary to Supplement?

woman with shining skin

In the last couple of years, collagen supplements have been everywhere. The ads claim that they can make your hair longer, your nails stronger, and your skin more supple and taut.

But when taken orally like any other nutrient, it’s broken down in the digestive process.

At Kalos Plastic Surgery and The K Spa, we offer better products and treatments to give you a glow.

May we recommend:

  1. Topical Tretinoin: This topically applied prescription medication is typically used for acne, but also helps build the level of collagen in your skin for healing and a more elastic feel. Tretinoin is a retinoid, meaning that it is part of the vitamin A family.
  2. Skin Peels: At The K Spa, Dr. Stong offers several chemical peels. Our special “Vitalize Peel” includes retinol, which is essential to rebuilding the collagen in your skin without a prescription.
  3. Laser Resurfacing: The Pearl Fractional Laser pulses away damaged tissue that makes your skin look dull and wrinkled. The deep pulsing action allows your body to begin producing its own collagen for healing.
  4. Over the Counter products: Since not everyone can arrange to have laser resurfacing or skin peels, look for an over-the-counter product with Retinol and hyaluronic acid. These won’t work as well as professional treatments available at Kalos, but you will see some improvement over time.

Collagen is a basic building block of your skin and connective tissues. Keeping them healthy and strong is an important part of your self-care. At Kalos Plastic Surgery, we can help you find the right routine and products that work the best for you. Contact us today for a consultation!
