Injected collagen is primarily used to improve the appearance of your skin’s texture. It can help fill out deep facial wrinkles, creases, furrows, skin depressions and some types of scars. It can also be used to give you a fuller, more sensuous look to your lips. Collagen is not usually sufficient for severe surface wrinkles on the face, such as multiple vertical “lipstick lines” that sometimes form around the mouth.

Some people may be allergic to the product, so a skin test is required prior to use. The results of your collagen injection will vary for each individual as will the length of time it will last. Some patients have reported their treatment lasting a year or longer, while others report a duration of only 3-6 months.
