“I am always so excited to help people understand the important role collagen plays as you age,” Dr. Jacobs said. “Collagen is a protein found in your skin’s connective tissue, and it can help slow down aging, wrinkles and increase skin elasticity. When we don’t have enough of it, that leads to dry skin and the formation of wrinkles. Luckily, skincare products and services exist that can help our bodies produce more collagen.”

Ooh La La Spa, Anti-Aging & Wellness offers a variety of technology, products and treatment methods to help people’s skin produce more collagen. These include painless treatments such as Ultherapy, a procedure that stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the skin’s foundational layer without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. They also offer a treatment called Secret RF, a treatment that uses fractional radiofrequency (RF) and a micro-needling system to stimulate and remodel collagen. Both procedures can also help improve other skin issues such as fine lines, acne scars, stretch marks, brown spots and uneven skin texture.
