So you’ve heard all the talk about collagen. Why is it so important for a youthful appearance, you ask? Collagen is essential for healthy, younger-looking skin because it gives structure to our skin cells. As we age and lose collagen-the structural protein that helps provide healthy elasticity-our skin thins and starts to act less like lycra and more like linen. As a result of this depletion, you may see any of the following:
Crow’s-Feet: The outer corner of the eyelids becomes saggy.
Drooping Brows: Your eyebrows to droop, resulting in a hooded look over the eyelids.
Nasolobial Folds: Lack of collagen causes the lines that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth.
Jowls: Jowls are due to excess skin, which occurs from a decrease in collagen, elastin and volume.
Thin lips: Lost collagen leads to lip lines and a loss of volume.
