How to Boost Collagen, Both Clinically and Naturally

A complete breakdown of how to increase collagen production both naturally and clinically

From adding plumpness to aiding in hydration—collagen plays a huge role in the health of our skin. But as we age, the production of collagen slows down greatly. In addition to aging, factors like sun exposure, stress and blue light can cause collagen to break down faster than normal. And while some ingredients and products on the market can help boost collagen, their molecules are too large to penetrate into the skin, and don’t go deep enough into the layers to see real results. So how exactly can you stimulate collagen? Here are three non-surgical clinical treatments and two natural practices that promise to boost collagen and bring radiance back to your skin.


The fastest way to boost collagen is by getting a treatment done in a clinic. There are several treatments which boost collagen clinically.

  • FONOTA 4D®

This laser treatment is a miracle worker when it comes to refreshing the skin, reducing signs of aging and boosting collagen. The Fonota 4D works at restoring the thickness of the skin by stimulating collagen and tightening the skin on both the exterior facial and interior oral cavity. It features two lasers and comes with four modes that reach three layers of the skin—deep, middle and superficial. The treatment takes under an hour and you will see results after the first session and can expect no downtime.

  • E-Matrix

One of the most advanced treatments available on the market, the E-Matrix is an FDA-approved radiofrequency energy that generates heat under the surface of the skin. It diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, reduces acne and scars, and boosts collagen production over a series of sessions. It works on all skin types and has no downtime. This machine was made to work on all skin types and tones and you can expect minimal downtime. It’s recommended to get four to six treatments every four weeks to see optimal results, but will be discussed at your consultation.


Although the results are not nearly as quick or obvious as a clinical treatment, there are two natural ways to boost collagen production within the body—hydrolysed collagen supplements and bone broth.

  • Hydrolysed collagen supplements

IMAGE COURTESY OF: in the form of a pill or powder, hydrolysed collagen has been shown to boost collagen within the body, which in turn can help improve elasticity and plumpness on the skin, gradually, over time. Studies have shown that the benefits of taking hydrolysed collagen supplements go further than collagen production on the skin. Taking them regularly can improve gut health, by providing amino acids, which help to improve intestinal health and have a direct impact on the appearance of the texture and evenness of skin.

  • Bone broth
