As a medispa, we are always on the lookout for clinical studies that can help us better understand the efficacy of skincare treatments and supplements. Recently, we came across a paper titled "A Collagen Supplement Improves Skin Hydration, Elasticity, Roughness, and Density: Results of a Randomized, Placebo-Controlled, Blind Study" by Liane Bolke, Gerrit Schlippe, Joachim Gerß, and Werner Voss.
In this blog post, we will review this study and share our thoughts on the potential benefits of collagen supplements for improving skin health.
The study aimed to evaluate the effects of a collagen supplement on various skin parameters, including hydration, elasticity, roughness, and density. The researchers recruited 69 women between the ages of 35 and 55 and divided them into two groups: one group received a collagen supplement while the other group received a placebo.
The collagen supplement contained a blend of collagen peptides, vitamins, and minerals. Participants were instructed to take the supplement daily for 8 weeks. Skin parameters were measured at the beginning of the study and at 4 and 8 weeks.
The results of the study were impressive. Participants who took the collagen supplement showed significant improvements in skin hydration, elasticity, roughness, and density compared to those who took the placebo. Specifically, skin hydration increased by 28%, skin elasticity increased by 11%, and skin roughness decreased by 26%. In addition, skin density increased by 7.5%.
These results are significant because they demonstrate the potential benefits of collagen supplements for improving skin health. Collagen is a protein that is naturally found in the body and is essential for maintaining the structure and elasticity of the skin. As we age, the production of collagen in the body decreases, which can lead to the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.
By supplementing with collagen, we can potentially boost our body's collagen production and improve the overall health and appearance of our skin. This is particularly relevant for individuals who are looking to improve the appearance of aging skin.
At our medispa, we recognized the importance of collagen for maintaining healthy, youthful-looking skin. We offer a range of collagen-based treatments, including injectable fillers, microneedling, and radiofrequency treatments.
In light of the findings of this study, we are also excited to offer collagen supplements to our clients. We believe that these supplements can be an excellent addition to any skincare regimen, particularly for individuals who are looking to improve skin hydration, elasticity, roughness, and density.
However, it is important to note that not all collagen supplements are created equal. The collagen supplement used in the study contained a specific blend of collagen peptides, vitamins, and minerals. It is essential to choose a supplement that contains high-quality, bioavailable collagen peptides and is free of harmful additives.
At our medispa, we have carefully curated our selection of collagen supplements from reputable brands that meet our high standards of quality and efficacy. We are happy to provide guidance to our clients on choosing the right supplement for their needs.
In conclusion, the study by Bolke et al. provides compelling evidence for the potential benefits of collagen supplements for improving skin hydration, elasticity, roughness, and density. As a medispa, we are excited to offer collagen supplements to our clients and believe that they can be an excellent addition to any skincare regimen. However, it is important to choose a high-quality supplement that is free of harmful additives. We are committed to providing our clients with the best possible skincare products and treatments, and we are here to help you achieve healthy, youthful-looking skin.
Colvita - one of the products that have laid the foundations for building the COLWAY brand. Distributed since 2006. It has never been advertised - the legend that surrounds it has been created by the consumers.
This dietary supplement was created to improve the appearance of the skin and maximally enhance skin density.
Freeze-dried fish collagen contained in the product, involved in the natural metabolic processes, supports the regeneration of collagen in the human body. This protein makes up 30% of the total mass of all proteins in the human body and plays numerous roles. It is an indispensable element in maintaining the continuous renewal of body cells and a good condition of the space outside them (intercellular matrix). It also contributes to skin firmness and density, supporting its proper elasticization and hydration. The addition of algae and the strongest vitamin "scavenger" of free radicals - vitamin E - greatly enhances Colvita's biopotential with antioxidant properties.
Colvita has played a fundamental role in establishing the COLWAY brand. It has been distributed since 2006 without ever being advertised; its reputation has been built entirely by word-of-mouth from its consumers.
The primary purpose of this dietary supplement is to enhance the skin's appearance and promote skin density.
The product contains freeze-dried fish collagen, which actively participates in natural metabolic processes, thereby promoting the regeneration of collagen in the human body. Collagen constitutes 30% of all proteins in the human body and performs a wide range of functions. It plays an indispensable role in the continuing renewal of body cells and the optimum condition of the intercellular matrixes (the spaces immediately outside the cellular walls). Collagen is also vital for maintaining skin firmness and density by ensuring proper elasticity and hydration. In addition, the inclusion of algae and vitamin E, a potent antioxidant, significantly boosts Colvita's biopotential.
