Luxury Skin Treatments in Ramsgate | Why stimulating collagen production is vital in our anti-ageing treatments?
Why Stimulate Collagen At all?
There are many benefits of collagen stimulation. The most important one for us as we age is that it can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but there are other significant benefits to be aware of as well.
Here are our 10 benefits of collagen stimulating treatments:
1) We Can Improve Skin Health
Treatments can improve your skin health by regenerating the collagen that is lost over time. We can in effect improve your overall skin texture and tone.
2) We can Reduce Wrinkles and Fine Lines
Treatments can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, giving your skin a younger look.
At Turek Clinic we have effective weapons against common signs of ageing such as age spots, sagging skin, and discolouration.
3) We Can Help Relieve Joint Pain
Increased collagen production has been known to help relieve joint pain. When a client is suffering from osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, we can offer treatments to effectively reduce inflammation and even the severity of their symptoms.
4) We Can Prevent Bone Loss
As we age, the cells in our bones start to decrease, leading to a condition known as osteoporosis. Collagen stimulation has been studied and has been shown to increase bone density by stimulating new cell growth.
5) We Can Boost Your Muscle Mass
Collagen Stimulation treatments can also boost muscle mass. Muscle is made up of collagen, so when collagen levels are increased, it will lead to an increase in muscle tone and strength as well. Easy than the gym…Right!
6) We Can Improve Your Overall Skin Elasticity
Agung also causes our skin loses its ability to bounce back, which increases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. With our specialist, medical-grade treatments help your body restore its natural collagen levels so that it will look more youthful again!
7) We Promote Heart Health
Collagen can also promote heart health by preventing plaque build-up and reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease. Collagen can also increase nitric oxide levels in your blood vessels, which helps them become more elastic and less prone to damage from high blood pressure. The more collagen you have in your body, the healthier your blood vessels will be – so many benefits right?
8) We can Increase The Strength of Your Hair and Nails
When collagen levels are high, your hair will be more lustrous and stronger, something that we call crave for! We will leave your skin looking younger because collagen ensures that every cell in our body can regenerate properly – so we can help regenerate yours!
9) We Can Improve Gut Health
A healthy gut is essential to overall health. Collagen can promote improved gut function by strengthening the lining of your intestines.
Also, collagen is important for gut health because it can reduce inflammation in the digestive tract, helping reduce symptoms of IBS, ulcers, and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
10) We Can Protect Your Skin From Harmful Free Radicals
Free radicals are extremely harmful to our bodies, and they cause damage that leads to ageing, disease, and even death.
Collagen can protect your skin from harmful free radicals like pollution and UV rays. This, therefore, reduces oxidative stress on your skin, which is one of the main causes of wrinkles and fine lines.
Our Collagen Stimulation Treatments
There’re different types of collagen stimulation treatments available for people interested in improving their skin health. Some of these treatments include Radio Frequency, Microneeding, 3D HIFU , among others.
Let’s discuss these treatments and why they are effective in stimulating collagen production.
This skin rejuvenation treatment is a type of treatment that treats the entire face and neck.
This non-invasive process uses thermal heating to stimulate collagen production, which can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment also stimulates elastin production, which reduces deep facial folds caused by sagging skin or excess weight loss.
Our High end, the luxury system ensures that only specific layers are heated while the others remain cool, preventing damage to healthy cells underneath your skin surface. This treatment provides consistent results every time without any downtime or recovery time needed.
Advanced Microneeding – Blood FREE!!
Microneedling is a process that uses tiny needles to create multiple micro-injuries in the top layer of your skin. These injuries are small enough so you won’t even notice them, but they’re big enough for collagen production to be stimulated. After microneeding treatment, these micro-wounds have time to heal before being exposed again, allowing new cells and blood vessels to grow back into areas where collagen has been lost or damaged.
You can add growth factors in to give this treatment and your skin a performance boost!

What Damages Collagen?
When collagen is exposed to certain factors, it becomes damaged, which contributes to skin ageing and the development of wrinkles. Here we will discuss some of these factors in detail:
Yourr lifestyle can contribute to collagen damage, especially if you are constantly stressed out or lack sleep regularly. This causes the body’s immune system to weaken, allowing harmful free radicals to form more easily and cause cellular damage.
TOO much Sun
Sun exposure is another factor that damages collagen because it increases your risk of developing skin cancer and other types of harmful diseases. Overexposure to the sun leads to hyperpigmentation and photoaging, which speeds up cellular damage caused by free radicals. When the damage starts to happen, you will notice more wrinkles forming on areas exposed to sunlight frequently, such as hands and face.
Make sure you apply a minimum of SPF daily to ensure minimal damage.
Having a High Sugar Consumption
If your diet consists of high sugar foods, your body produces more advanced glycation end products or AGEs, which are chemicals that break down collagen. This metabolic process can lead to the development of wrinkles and other signs of ageing much faster than they would appear otherwise – so cut down on that sugar!
Smoking hugely affects your body’s ability to produce vitamin C, which is essential for collagen production.
When this happens, you’ll start noticing more fine lines and wrinkles form on areas of the skin where collagen has been lost or damaged. Not only that, but smoking also contributes to premature ageing. That’s because it reduces blood flow around the body, which also limits oxygen supply. This causes an increase in oxidative stress because cells can no longer get enough nutrients to stay healthy.
If you are a smoker, we have an amazing treatment especially for minimising your smokers lines.
Having an Autoimmune Disorder
Some autoimmune disorders can contribute to collagen damage as well. For example, lupus causes your body’s immune system to attack healthy cells by mistake, which increases the risk of developing skin lesions that often lead to scarring over time if not treated properly.

Not drinking enough water daily…
Water is very important when it comes to collagen production as it helps flush out harmful toxins in the body, which will lead to healthier-looking skin overall. So this is why dehydration can contribute to signs of ageing even faster than they would appear otherwise because your cells are unable to function properly.
Your Natural Ageing Process
As you get older, your body’s ability to produce collagen slowly decreases. Contributing to signs of ageing appearing on the skin, such as fine lines and wrinkles. This process can be slowed down with treatments like Forma and Microneeding, which aim to boost collagen production so it stays at a consistent level.
