Collagen implants are a frequent point of discussion with our patients. For those patients who are seeking to restore lost volume in their face and lips – without implant or skin-tightening surgery, collagen injections may be the perfect solution.
Collagen is a natural product that can be injected just below the surface of your skin to plump and fill the skin – smoothing out the appearance of lines and wrinkles. While collagen is found in our skin already, over time this collagen breaks down and degrades. Implants can refill these hollowed spaces and stimulate the growth of your own, naturally occurring collagen.
Collagen can be used to take years off of your appearance by smoothing out wrinkles and facial lines, plumping your facial contours and replacing volume that has been lost in the cheeks or lips.
There are very few risks or side effects to receiving collagen implants, however it is advised that you received allergy testing prior to your injections – as they will last several months.
