Collagen And Deep Wrinkles
Dermis, the layer below the top layer of skin (epidermis) is made mostly of collagen. This gives support to the skin. In young age, collagen keeps the skin looking young and fresh. As we use our facial muscles, wrinkle lines begin forming on the skin and we lose lot of collagen with time. Because of this loss, the wrinkles become deep and permanent. In collagen treatment, collagen is injected to treat the wrinkled skin and make it plump again. Your doctor may combine collagen injections with other skin resurfacing procedures such as botox, laser, etc. to get better results.
