Cosmetic Procedures: Collagen Injections

Collagen injections are primarily used to smoothen the wrinkled skin. This therapy is also known as collagen implant or collagen replacement therapy. The dermis in our skin is mainly made of collagen. Collagen diminishes because of aging and also because of sun damage. Skin starts to sag, hollowness forms on face, and deep wrinkles appear due to depletion of collagen. Collagen injections are used to replenish the lost collagen and make the skin plump again. As the injected collagen gets absorbed, you need to take injections again after some months to keep the look. Let us find out more about collagen and how it is used to treat wrinkles.
