Collagen is filler material that
is utilized to erase lines, fill scars and augment lip
areas. The Ultra Peel and Botox can round out the treatment
benefits of Collagen. A substantial benefit of all these
treatments is that there is no down time and normal activity
can be resumed immediately. Consultations are complimentary
and price varies on the amount of product utilized. The
information below is offered to provide you with more
detailed information related to the products and the procedures.
How do Collagen implants work?
A: Implants are natural substances that replenish the
natural collagen support layer beneath the skin. These
implants are injected just beneath the skin's surface,
where the body commonly accepts them as its own. Treatment
implants provide an immediate, visible difference in the
appearance of skin.
What facial areas are treated by Collagen implants?
A: Collagen implants are used to smooth lines, wrinkles
and scars, as well as to provide lip border definition.
Common treatment areas include the lines between the nose
and the corner of the mouth (nasolabial folds) and marionette
lines (oral commissures).
How long does the procedure take?
A: The procedure takes generally 30 minutes, and most
patients return to their normal routine immediately following
How long will results last?
A: Most patients should be able to see the results of
their treatment for three to six months. The amount of
time treatment results will last varies depending on the
area of the face treated, the amount of material used
and the amount of material used and the amount of muscle
movement in the treatment area.
Like the body's own natural collagen,
implants wear down over time. An ongoing series of customized
treatments can preserve the look that is desired. Patients
should consult their doctor who can recommend a personalized
program that meets each individual's needs and optimizes
the treatment outcome.
How long will it take to see results:
A: Results are immediately visible.
Who can perform the procedure?
Are creams containing collagen enough to smooth out?
A: Dermatologists, plastic surgeons, facial plastic surgeons
and aesthetic doctors use implants in their practices.
Nurses, who are trained as collagen specialists, administer
implant treatments under supervision and guidance of a
A: Once collagen begins to naturally wear down during the
aging process, there is no way to reverse the breakdown.
Topical solutions such as creams and moisturizers can work
to rejuvenate the epidermis or outer layers of the skin.
However, unless creams (with or without collagen) and moisturizers
include ingredients such as alpha hydroxy acids, they do
not penetrate deeper layers of skin and therefore, have
no effect on replenishing the collagen under the skin.
