Collagen Banking for Anti-Aging Skin Health

Three multicultural girls together | Walnut Creek Aesthetics in Walnut Creek, CA

With it being the early start of June, not only are the outside temperatures rising, but we’re almost ready for the official start of Summer☀ What better time to get ready for the warmer weather and glistening months ahead by showing off your healthy, summer skin! You often hear us preaching “Don’t forget your SPF and Re-apply until you die,” and you may be wondering, “Why?” “Why be so diligent about sunscreen?” is the most common question we get. The answers are simple. Not only should you apply sunscreen to keep your skin protected from the sun’s harmful, skin cancer causing rays, but it also helps keep you looking your best, ‘anti-aging selves’ in the process. We hear the words ‘anti-aging’ all the time, but what does the term actually even mean? It means: Collagen Turnover.

What is Collagen Banking?

It’s not actually what it sounds like. Collagen banking isn’t removing collagen from your body to save for later use. Instead, collagen banking refers to the idea of boosting collagen production now (in your 20s and early 30s) so your body will have more of it later as you age.

Treatments Used for Collagen Banking

Although we can certainly help to improve collagen loss in your 40s, 50s, 60s etc., remember, Prevention is Key. We highly recommend treating your skin to recover elasticity and collagen loss in your 20s-30s, as it’s best to treat your skin in its prime, before the damage begins.

Some of the most popular treatments used for “collagen banking” include:

  • Radio frequency microneedling
  • Dermal fillers like Sculptra
  • Laser treatments for face and body
  • Fibroblast plasma skin tightening
  • Chemical peels and LED light therapy
  • Skincare products like Retin-A and AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids)
  • Liquid collagen supplements like Skinade (marine collagen) and Yana (bovine collagen)

Since we believe in a 360 degree approach to overall skin health (treating the skin from the inside-out), we recommend that you call or book a complimentary skincare consultation online and let our team of experts customize just the right collagen banking plan for you!
