The Collagen Lift treatment has been achieving fabulous results for many clients. The warming ceramic wand plays a key role in boosting collagen production and keeping skin healthy. If you are wondering what factors affect Collagen Lift results, we’ve got you covered.
What factors affect results with CL?
Age, genetics and lifestyle each play a key role in the results you can achieve with your course of treatments. Though age and genetics can not be helped, you can change your lifestyle. An unhealthy lifestyle can speed up the process of collagen degradation, therefore, adopting healthier lifestyle habits is vital in maximising results.
Age and Genetics
Age and genetics are key factors that affect Collagen Lift results. From our mid-20s onwards, collagen fibres decrease by roughly 1% per year. This means the optimum level of collagen in the skin peaks around 25, and the skin may need help to stay youthful, plump and healthy. Genetics also have a key influence on skin structure and texture. If your parents noticed fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin from a certain age, you are likely to experience those same symptoms.
You can slow down the impact of genetics and ageing on the skin by understanding detrimental lifestyle factors that affect Collagen Lift results.
If you are a smoker, dull and lacklustre skin is an extremely likely consequence. Smoking destroys the skin barrier, restricts circulation, damages collagen and affects your skin’s natural tone. Cigarettes contain a host of chemicals that dry out the skin and destroy connective tissues. The chemicals also affect blood flow, narrowing blood vessels and preventing oxygen and nutrients from reaching the skin. These factors will affect how the Collagen Lift treatment works, restricting the results you achieve. Quitting smoking before treatment will allow the skin to begin repairing itself.
Alcohol is a big factor that will affect Collagen Lift results, as it is incredibly detrimental to the skin. When you are dehydrated, your skin is one of the first places to lose water, resulting in rough, dry, dull skin. As many alcoholic drinks are high in salt, it can also lead to a cycle of dehydration. If you are regularly drinking alcohol while having Collagen lift treatments, it will be incredibly hard to achieve results with dehydrated skin. Alcohol can also contribute to increased inflammation, oxidative stress, and higher cortisol production. These factors can show up on the skin as sagging, fine lines and wrinkles, dark circles, acne and breakouts.
An unhealthy diet could be affecting your skin more than you know. A diet full of processed foods and high sugar can result in high inflammation, breakouts and premature ageing of the skin. Whilst having treatment, your body will respond better if you are packing it full of superfoods.
Inconsistent Skincare Routine
Finally, if you are neglecting your skincare – you are not doing your skin any favours. Professional skin treatments are not a ‘quick fix’. You must be committed to achieving the best results possible by adopting consistent skincare habits and following all aftercare instructions. During a course of Collagen Lift, and in general, it is vital to keep the skin hydrated and moisturised.
