Collagen Filler for Wrinkles
Collagen Filler is designed to smooth out facial lines on the surface of the face. This helps restore the support structure of the face, thus enhancing the contours of the upper layer of skin. It can be used to enhance the shape of the lips, reduce the appearance of the scars, and also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Alternatives to a Wrinkle Collagen Filler Injection could be Restylane, Juvéderm or Radiesse.
The benefits of Collagen are obvious. It fills in lines and creases offering a more youthful glow. It also has the ability to plump sunken areas of the face adding overall fullness. One of the great aspects of using Collagen is that it adds fullness to the lips and cheeks, as well as fills out deep furrows. Many individuals have benefited from using Collagen Filler for the lips to enhance their overall appearance.
The general concept of using Collagen is to inject it directly into the wrinkle or area you want plumped up. There has been much success in using the wrinkle Collagen Filler. Typically, results from a treatment are temporary and last anywhere from 2 to 6 months.
Collagen has some side effects that could occur, however. At the injection site there could be temporary stinging, throbbing, or even a burning sensation. Some patients have experienced faint redness, swelling, and excess fullness in the treatment area. It is possible to have an allergic reaction including rash, hives, swelling, or flu-like symptoms. These reactions have the ability for a possible triggering of connective tissue or autoimmune diseases. Prior to having any Wrinkle Collagen Filler injections, you must have a skin sensitivity/allergy test. A small amount is injected into your arm and you must wait at least three weeks before receiving the full injections to make sure you do not develop an allergic reaction. Zyderm and Zyplast Collagens are derived from purified bovine (cow) collagen which can pose problems for those people who are sensitive to this substance.
Most individuals find that they can resume their normal activities within moments of the Wrinkle Collagen Filler Treatment.
During a Wrinkle Collagen Filler Treatment a topical numbing cream may be used to reduce any discomfort for the patient. This will be determined by the physician.
After being injected with collagen we recommend that you keep an icepack on the area for 15 minutes to reduce possible swelling. You may take Arnica (under the tongue) every two hours for the first day or two if any bruising occurs.

Collagen Injections Testimonials
“I had always wanted larger lips but was afraid of how I would look. Collagen was a great option; if I didn’t like the results, it would go away in a few months. Well, I like my new lips.”
