There are a lot of products out there that promise to boost collagen production – but which ones are the most effective?
As it turns out, the best way to increase collagen in the skin is through three technologies: microneedling, Halo Laser, and Morpheus8.
How These Three Treatments Triggers Collagen Production
This FDA-cleared procedure uses a special device that uses small microneedles to quickly puncture the dermal tissue. These tiny wounds immediately trigger the body’s healing processes, which contain lots of – you guessed it – collagen. This excess collagen helps increase cellular turnover, resulting in improvement of:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Acne scarring
- Skin laxity issues
- Uneven skin tone
- And more
The Morpheus8 treatment combines the above powers of microneedling with radiofrequency energy. This innovative combination helps create youthful and clear skin, all while stimulating collagen and elastin production for long-term results. Additionally, just one Morpheus8 treatment can tighten dermal tissue for almost-immediate improvement to sagging facial skin.
3. Halo Laser:
The Halo Laser combines ablative and non-ablative laser wavelengths to remove dead dermal tissue while stimulating cellular turnover at the subdermal level. The Halo Laser is an excellent solution for candidates who want to minimize the appearance of hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, and wrinkles – all while increasing long-term collagen production.

What to Expect from These Three Treatments
The entire microneedling or Morpheus8 treatments take about 40 minutes to perform, with initial results visible almost immediately. Most patients will need about three to five treatments to see firmer, clearer skin. You’ll need to wear sunscreen after your procedure, as your skin will be red and sensitive to new sun damage.
If you’re opting for the Halo Laser, you may need up to three treatments to see your ideal results. You’ll also need to wear sunscreen after treatments to protect your newly treated skin.
If you’re worried about feeling uncomfortable during your treatment, a numbing cream or ice can be applied to your skin beforehand to help numb the targeted area.
Best Candidates for Increased Collagen Production
Wondering if you’re a good candidate for any of the above treatments?
While every client is different, the best collagen candidates are individuals who have moderate signs of aging, including wrinkles, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation. These treatments are also excellent for people who have acne scarring and want to achieve truly clear skin.
Most of these treatments can be used on any skin type and tone, making them highly flexible choices for interested candidates.
