As we age, our skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form. For many patients, small injections of collagen can help to reduce these lines, restoring a smoother and more youthful appearance to your skin. Once injected, the collagen gently fills furrowed areas of the face and can create fuller lips.

The most important fact to remember about collagen injections is that the results are not permanent because injected material is eventually metabolized by the body. Results typically last six to 36 months, depending on the area being treated and the material used. A small percentage of patients may experience an allergic reaction. 

Benefits include:

  • Significant reduction of fine-to-deep wrinkles 
  • Revolumizing of lips, cheeks and tear troughs 
  • Correction of jowls, vertical lip lines, mouth creases and nasolabial folds  

Side effects: Patients may experience redness, swelling and possible bruising after the injects. (Lasting up to seven days)
