Over the years we’ve asked a lot of people if they know what collagen actually is. The answers vary from “that stuff that people inject into their face”, “an ingredient in moisturisers” through to “a powder that Instagram influencers promote”. While they’re all kind of right, there’s more science behind what collagen is.
Collagen is more than a beauty buzzword and is, in fact, the most abundant protein in our body - it is essentially the glue that holds our body together. It is also the all-important protein that gives us smooth, hydrated and wrinkle-free skin.
The good news is that our bodies naturally produce collagen. The bad news is, that from the age of 25 our collagen production slow does and then continues to do so every year. It’s for this reason, as we get older, we get wrinkles, fine-lines and (for the lack of a better word) saggy skin.
Over the past couple of decades there have been countless studies into the different ways to assist with collagen production. Thankfully scientists discovered that red light used at the correct wavelength penetrates your skin to stimulate the collagen-producing cells, improving skin elasticity and reducing the signs of aging.
Permaderm’s products have been built to emit red light at the perfect depth to activate those collagen-producing cells.
