Collagen is the most important building block in the human body which makes up 70% of your skin, it prevents wrinkles from forming and it’s integrally involved in vital skin elasticity.

The collagen in your dermis is 80% Type I and 10% Type III, which are the key building foundation pathway for youthful flawless skin. Nutrition is a key factor in skin health and function; with Collagen, Proline and Lysine supplements to reverse signs of aging. With the support of skincare that includes Vitamin A, C, Peptides along with LED and microneedling treatments.
