The secret to youthful, plumped-up skin. What is collagen and why its so important?


We all want to find the secret to youthful, plumped-up skin, but what role does collagen really have to play? With collagen pills and collagen-stimulating creams on the market, we’re discovering what treatments really work and sharing the secret to smooth, radiant, lifted and plumped-up skin.

Youthful Feeling



Collagen is a protein that’s present in all of our bodies, but its production reduces with age. In fact, collagen production begins to decline in our twenties.

As collagen is responsible for sustaining the body’s structure, when it decreases your skin can suffer. Over time, your skin will lose its plump and youthful appearance as collagen production slows down.



If you want to maintain that youthful, plumped up look, collagen is essential. It helps your skin stay firm and maintain its elasticity and prevents against dreaded wrinkles and sagging. 

By increasing the amount of collagen in the body, through treatments and supplements, you can help slow down the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. Collagen will also tackle common complaints including dehydrated skin, roughness, and lack of elasticity.

Anti-ageing COLLAGEN CREAMS may help with skin appearance but collagen can’t be absorbed through the skin – so all your anti-aging creams and potions won’t help to produce the collagen your skin needs. Collagen molecules are too big to penetrate the skin’s surface. 

There are a number of COLLAGEN-RICH FOODS like salmon, sweet potato, and avocado, but they haven’t been proven to slow down the ageing of your skin. While they deliver a number of health benefits, your body actually breaks down the collagen molecule to use it as fuel – rather than using it to firm up the skin.

That is why many people have turned to advanced aesthetic treatments like ELIXIS ELITE, which is a great option to address the early signs of aging by REMODELING COLLAGEN with no downtime.

The Exilis Elite uses the most advanced form of radio frequency energy to tighten, firm and lift sagging and wrinkled skin. This procedure is performed in a comfortable setting while the process safely heats the skin’s deep layers to initiate more COLLAGEN AND ELASTIN PRODUCTION.

Due to the advanced technology within the Exilis Elite, the process requires fewer treatments than most devices found on the market. Generally 4 to 6 treatments are required. Since the procedure prompts the remodeling own collagen, optimal results are evident mostly after 3 months. 

The Exilis Elite is used to treat common areas of concern including the face, eyes, neck, décolleté (chest) and hands as well as the whole body. 

This technology is also used to provide a temporary plump and lift effect which is the popular treatment of choice prior to a special event.

This technology is an excellent alternative for individuals who want to reduce the signs of aging with no downtime, and without surgery or needles. Exilis Elite boosts the body’s own collagen remodeling response for a natural result, so you can age gracefully.
