Facial Rejuvenation With Collagen Injections

Jan 15, 2008
Collagen injections have been used to effectively treat fine lines and wrinkles for nearly two decades. Collagen is especially effective for reducing the appearance of wrinkles around your lips, and can even be used to give you fuller, more defined lips and reduce deep nasolabial folds. Collagen can also improve the appearance of facial scars, including those caused by acne.

Collagen is injected through a tiny needle. The process takes only a few minutes, and patients experience very little discomfort, if any. Mild swelling can be expected immediately after the procedure, but can be reduced with ice. Patients may return to their normal activities immediately after an injection. The effects of collagen usually last up to 6 months.

In youth, an abundance of two important substances, collagen and hyaluronic acid, keep your skin looking smooth and supple. Collagen is a protein that provides your skin with structural support. Hyaluronic acid is a natural sugar found in all living cells that attracts and binds water, hydrating the skin and giving it volume.

With time, sunlight and other factors, collagen and hyaluronic acid in your skin diminish, the skin loses structure and volume, and unwelcome lines and wrinkles appear.
