Ageing is inevitable and a natural part of life. As much as we love gaining wisdom that comes with age, we don’t fancy losing collagen, which happens to be one of the biggest contributing factors to the signs of ageing.
Why is collagen so important?
Collagen is the main structural protein found in our skin, and is needed to keep the skin plump and youthful-looking. Think of collagen as the support springs in your mattress, which over time, start to lose their firmness, causing the mattress to sag and become lumpy.
That is what happens in our skin as we age. According to Dr Isaac Wong, aesthetic doctor, international CynoSure trainer speaker and medical director of The Artisan Clinic, “it is a well-known scientific fact that our skin loses collagen at two per cent per year” after we reach 30, which is the age “when our collagen production is slower than the collagen breakdown”.
Thus, as we get older, the collagen in our skin decreases, thanks in part to environmental factors like UV damage and pollutants, as well as stress and unhealthy lifestyle habits such as smoking, having late nights and excessive sugar consumption.
As collagen diminishes, skin loses its elasticity, texture, bounce, shine and glow.
The Artisan Clinic is one of the first in Southeast Asia to offer this dual-laser treatment that utilises an exclusive and new protocol designed by Dr Wong, which is able to:
- Achieve face-slimming through a lifting and tightening effect
- Reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation
- Attain an immediate brightening and glowy effect
- Remove unwanted facial hair
It’s no wonder it’s a popular treatment among local celebrities such as Sue Tan and Magdalene See.
