What Is Collagen Banking?

What Is Collagen Banking?

At Nakin we thought that we had heard every skincare trend there is out there from our twenty years of skincare production, however, there is a new one that we keep hearing about, and it is called collagen banking. If like us, you want to know more about it then read on. Collagen banking is all about keeping ourselves looking youthful, instead of correcting signs of ageing. So what makes this an even weirder topic is that this has kind of been around for a long time, and something we offer every day when using our Nakin Natural Anti-Ageing Skincare range.

We completely understand the love of collagen. It is the thing that gives our skin that lovely bounce and structure, and one of the main reasons why our skin looks so lovely when we are younger. So, if collagen banking is all about keeping skin looking as fresh and youthful as possible, then we are all about this. Unfortunately though it is more involved than this, and not just a case of using our anti-ageing face products.

Collagen, a type of protein found in our bodies, is responsible for providing structure and strength to our skin, bones, muscles and ligaments. In fact, it makes up about 30% of the total protein content in humans.

As we age, collagen production decreases and the existing collagen breaks down at a faster rate than it can be replaced. This leads to visible signs of ageing such as wrinkles, sagging skin and joint stiffness. Collagen banking is a process that aims to combat this natural decline by preserving or storing collagen for future use.

The concept of collagen banking originated in the field of regenerative medicine, where scientists were looking for ways to preserve tissues and cells for transplantation. The idea was then adapted for cosmetic and medical purposes, with the goal of preserving a person's own collagen for future anti-ageing treatments.

This highly experimentative treatment of collagen banking involves collecting a small sample of collagen from a person's body, typically from areas such as the thighs or buttocks. The stored collagen can then be used in various ways, such as through injections or topical application, to replenish lost collagen and improve skin elasticity. It can also be used in surgical procedures, such as facelifts or breast augmentation, to enhance results and reduce the risk of rejection compared to synthetic materials.

Collagen banking seems to have different meaning everyone. For many it involved using treatments carried out by a professional to ward off the signs of ageing. Some of these are things that we completely recommend, such as facials, but the more invasive ones are not something that we suggest doing. They have gained popularity in recent years as a non-invasive and natural way to combat signs of ageing. It allows individuals to use their own collagen, rather than relying on synthetic fillers or implants, which can have potential risks and side effects. However, this needs to be carefully planned and thought about

Whatever type of collagen boosting treatments you like to do; I think we can all agree that using good skincare like Nakin’s is one of the easiest and safest ways to boost your collagen products.
