Collagen is a major buzzword in the beauty world thanks to its role in maintaining firm, resilient skin. Today it’s found in skincare products, protein powders, capsule supplements, beverages and more — but do these products really deliver the results they promise? Experts are still debating the efficacy of topical and oral collagen, but there’s another way to incorporate this powerful protein into your beauty routine.
Injectable collagen replacement therapy can help replenish your skin’s natural collagen supply. With Nithya’s revolutionary collagen-boosting treatment, we can restore facial volume, ease fine lines and even improve the appearance of your décolletage and hands. Nithya works in harmony with your tissue to produce a natural-looking anti-aging effect.
Collagen is a protein found in our skin, muscles, tendons and bones. It’s often described as the “glue” that holds our bodies together or the “support structure” that strengthens our skin. In the dermis, or the middle layer of our skin, collagen is made by fibroblast cells and helps create a structural framework that maintains our skin’s firmness, tone and elasticity. Collagen also helps keep our skin moist and helps skin cells repair and regenerate.
Put simply, collagen is one of the main factors in improving the health and beauty of our skin, and it’s an invaluable ally in the fight against skin aging.
Our collagen supply does not stay consistent throughout our life. Through the natural progression of aging, the collagen in our dermis is gradually depleted, leading to facial volume loss and the formation of facial lines. This process can start as soon as our early 20s, and by our 50s, our collagen stores have dramatically dropped.
External factors can speed up collagen loss. In addition to aging and genetics, collagen production can be affected by sun damage, environmental pollution, stress, smoking and diet. Fortunately, we now have options to slow collagen’s decline and introduce new collagen into the body.
Nithya collagen replacement therapy is a nonsurgical, minimally invasive procedure that boosts your skin's natural collagen. Tiny quantities of heterologous native type I collagen are injected into a targeted area using narrow-gauge needles. Nithya collagen is produced in a way that matches the biochemical and three-dimensional structure of the collagen in the human body, so it is compatible with our natural tissues. It also undergoes a high-tech purification process to minimize the risk of allergic reaction.
Nithya collagen injections can be used in many different ways to promote a youthful, healthy appearance. At the discretion of your Lucia Clinic physician, Nithya can be administered into various areas of the:
Dubai collagen replacement therapy represents a new era of tissue regeneration and anti-aging. Our expert injectors can utilize this treatment to:
If you are considering collagen replacement therapy, you will first meet with a Lucia Clinic doctor for a consultation to determine whether this is the best treatment to meet your needs.
Biostimulators, sometimes called collagen-stimulating fillers, are a type of injectable that encourages your body’s collagen production. Unlike many dermal fillers, which just add volume underneath the skin, biostimulators add volume and stimulate collagen growth for longer-lasting effects. Collagen renewal results in gradual and natural volume increase in the injected areas.
The key difference between collagen replacement therapy and biostimulators is the formula. Biostimulators trigger collagen production but do not contain collagen themselves. Collagen replacement injections do contain collagen, and they also encourage your body to produce new collagen of its own.
Your initial visit to our clinic for collagen replacement therapy will determine your eligibility for this treatment. Please come prepared to talk about your medical history and any medications, vitamins or nutritional supplements you are taking or have taken recently. Your Lucia Clinic doctor will examine your skin and discuss your goals, and may also conduct a skin test to confirm you are not allergic to the collagen product.
If you are a good candidate, your doctor will explain the technique that will be used and advise you of the risks and benefits involved. Be sure to ask any questions you have and share your concerns and expectations related to the procedure.
Nithya collagen replacement treatments are carried out in Dubai by a specially trained doctor. The treatment usually takes 20-60 minutes.
During the procedure, your doctor will inject the collagen into the targeted areas of your face or body with a tiny needle. Local anesthesia will reduce any pain or discomfort. Depending on the type of concern being treated, several injections may be required, and massage may be used to smooth out the collagen.
Immediately after injection, the site may be slightly red, swollen, bruised and tender. These effects typically subside after a few hours or days. Your Lucia Clinic doctor will let you know if it’s safe to cover the treated areas with makeup and advise you of any aftercare instructions, such as avoiding strenuous exercise and sun exposure. You will not be required to take time off work, school or social engagements.
The plumping effect of Nithya collagen replacement therapy will be visible instantly. Over time, the injections will have additional benefits that rejuvenate your skin. You may notice your skin is firmer, smoother, more hydrated and more radiant as new collagen grows. Fine lines, wrinkles and other textural irregularities may be reduced, and as lost volume is restored, you may observe a lifting and tightening effect in the treated skin.
Like natural collagen, Nithya collagen does not last forever. The protein will slowly break down and be absorbed by your body. In most cases, the benefits of collagen replacement therapy last anywhere between one to six months. Two to three treatments per year will maintain your results.
