Collagen Replacement Therapy


Collagen is a naturally occurring protein that provides support to various parts of the human body:
the skin, the joints, the bones and the ligaments. Over time natural collagen is lost and skin starts to
show signs of ageing. Collagen replacement therapy can be use to replace lost collagen to keep your skin looking young
and healthy. Collagen is used primarily to fill wrinkles, lines and scars on the face.


Treatment with collagen can begin after a skin test determines that you’re not allergic to the substance. The
collagen is injected using a fine needle inserted at several points along the edge of the treatment site. Since part
of the substance is salt water that will be absorbed by the body within a few days, therefore the area will be
slightly overfilled at first to compensate for this.
