What is collagen stimulation?
Collagen is a major skin protein that adds tissue strength and resilience. It forms a scaffold that adds strength and structure to all your tissues, including muscles and ligaments. It also gives elasticity to your skin.
Collagen stimulation involves treatments that help your body remodel the collagen and create more without causing damage. In the past, professionals relied on aggressive lasers and chemical peels to encourage collagen production.
Now, collagen stimulation treatments are relatively mild and require little to no downtime but still result in amazing changes to your skin.

What collagen stimulation treatments do you offer?
A number of the aesthetic treatments offered at Garcia Weight Loss Aesthetics & Hormone Therapy stimulate collagen development to vastly improve your skin's look, resilience, and health. Collagen stimulation treatments include:
A thread lift is a minimally invasive treatment that introduces dissolvable surgical threads underneath the surface of your skin. The threads immediately lift tissue to give you noticeably younger, tauter skin while triggering your body to produce more collagen around them. The new collagen stays in place as the threads dissolve to make your new look last.
Morpheus8® by Inmode
Inmode Morpheus8® is a microneedling device that includes radiofrequency technology to reach 7 millimeters under the skin, which is the depth of treatment used to encourage collagen formation and remodel fat cells.
Microneedling tricks your body into believing it’s been injured, so collagen production increases. The radiofrequency energy further promotes collagen production so that you get younger-looking, smoother skin that’s healthy and robust after treatment.
Sculptra treats fat loss, deep creases, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which stimulates collagen production. Collagen is a major skin protein that builds resilience and resists the signs of aging.
PRX-T33 is a skin treatment that improves texture and tautness. The formula contains a mixture of trichloroacetic acid, kojic acid, and hydrogen peroxide. PRX-T33 is applied as a facial but doesn’t cause exfoliation. It tightens your skin by stimulating, regenerating, and renewing collagen.
