Collagen Banking: Your Key to Ageless Skin

The term Collagen banking is a bit misleading but it does relate to skincare practices that I recommend to all my lovely clients.

Here's the idea

Build up collagen stores in your body in your early twenties so that when you naturally start to run low on collagen come your late 30's and 40's, you can dip into your collagen savings.

Here's the reality

Your body doesn't offer long term savings accounts for collagen! It takes 2-3 months for new collagen to be produced and then it takes 1-2 years for it to be degraded. You can't hold on to it for any longer. But you can build up and hold on to collagen in the medium term.

How to build and maintain collagen:

Protect what you have

Look at your lifestyle - reduce sun exposure, get more sleep, eat lots of fruits & veggies, don't smoke. These all deplete collagen.

Build more collagen

Take a slow & steady approach to building collagen. Integrate a few treatments per year into a good daily skincare routine.

Benefits of Collagen Banking

**1. Youthful Skin Maintenance: Collagen banking helps maintain youthful, plump, and firm skin by preserving collagen levels, which naturally decline with age.

**2. Wrinkle Prevention: Regular collagen treatments can prevent the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, keeping your skin smooth and youthful.

**3. Improved Skin Elasticity: Enhanced collagen production improves skin elasticity, reducing sagging and promoting a more lifted appearance.

**4. Enhanced Hydration: Collagen treatments boost your skin’s moisture retention, resulting in a hydrated, radiant complexion.

**5. Smooth Skin Texture: Consistent collagen banking can improve skin texture, minimizing the appearance of pores and giving you a smoother, more refined look.

**6. Faster Skin Repair: Collagen plays a key role in skin regeneration and repair, helping to heal wounds and reduce scarring more efficiently.

**7. Boosted Skin Barrier Function: Strengthening the skin's barrier function, collagen treatments protect against environmental stressors and prevent moisture loss.

**8. Long-Term Skin Health: Investing in collagen banking now sets the foundation for healthier, more resilient skin in the future, helping you age gracefully

Collagen Boosting Treatment Packages at Selfcare Aesthetic Services:

Regenerative treatments like skin boosters and polynucleotides will increase your collagen production

Non-invasive treatments like microneedling are natural ways to boost collagen.


A good skincare routine is another way to bank collagen. Incorporating actives like vitamin C and A and retinol will build collagen and daily SPF to protect it.

Whatever your age, it's never too late to start doing this.
