A bit of skin deterioration is inevitable as we age. As you begin to notice those wrinkles and a loss of fullness that was once there, you may think there is little you can do to bring back the youthful look you once had. There is, however, a fountain of youth available today that may reverse the signs of aging completely. Thanks to collagen injections, you can tackle many of those skin problems you once thought permanent like crow’s feet, furrows in your brow, lines on your forehead, and even those little unsightly smile lines that have crept into the corners of your mouth.
Collagen injections have the power to add a bit more substance to your lips, enhance your cheeks a little, and soften the wrinkles you tried so hard to avoid. They can even change the appearance of scarring.
Even today’s most advanced surgery techniques can’t always offer you a natural appearance, but collagen injections often can. In fact, they’re one of the best possible ways to shape your skin. Not sure they’re right for you? Here are a few of our most frequently asked questions.
Collagen is one of the natural proteins your body produces. It is typically found in the skin, and we can inject it to help strengthen and support any areas that need a bit of extra help.
One of the most common reasons people use collagen injections is to help naturally reduce wrinkles and creases in the skin. While some turn to surgery as they begin to age, many more look to this simple treatment to improve the overall appearance of the skin without the risks and costs of surgery.
With any procedure like that, there are some risks, but we’ll discuss those before we ever schedule your session. Complications and side effects are fairly uncommon, though, and as long as you’re physically healthy and don’t smoke, you’re probably a very good candidate.
If you have a collagen injection session, you can expect younger looking skin in a matter of hours. Expect that healthy appearance you’ve been missing. Keep in mind that these results aren’t permanent, but they’re a great maintenance procedure. If you ever get tired of the youthful glow and tone they offer, your skin will return to its normal appearance.
