As we age, lines and wrinkles happen. However, with collagen skin treatments you can just fill in those little annoyances. Collagen is actually part of the natural support structure of your skin. Wrinkles form when this natural collagen thins. This loss is mostly a factor of aging, but exposure, pollution, health, heredity and lifestyle also play roles. Collagen treatments last from 3 to 6 months and take less than an hour in a doctor's office. Results are immediate and recovery time is so short, you can sneak in a treatment at lunchtime.
Without enough collagen, wrinkles and lines start to form wherever the skin moves. Collagen Replacement Therapy, (using Zyderm® and Zyplast® collagen implants), replenishes the skin's collagen layer, smoothing lines and wrinkles, and adding definition to lip borders from the inside out. And results are immediate.
Collagen Replacement Therapy has been proven safe and effective for well over 15 years. Collagen implants are natural products derived from highly purified bovine collagen that is injected just under the surface of the skin. Like your own collagen, your body eventually absorbs this collagen so ongoing treatments are necessary to maintain results. If you discontinue treatments, the new collagen is simply reabsorbed and your face gradually returns to its natural contours. While healing time varies, many people return to work the same day. People absorb collagen at varying rates, but treatments generally last 3 to 6 months.
You and your doctor will tailor a treatment program to meet your individual needs. No matter which options you choose, be sure you receive enough collagen to achieve the look you want.
