Reduce Scars with Collagen

Collagen Injections
Collagen is a filler material derived from cows used to treat fine to moderate lines on the face and give lips a plump, fuller appearance. Collagen can also be effective to minimize the appearance of certain scars.

Collagen as been used successfully since 1976. There are many similar materials being introduced into the cosmetic industry, but Collagen has been the "gold standard" for many years. Collagen treatments are simple and take about 20-30 minutes depending on the area being treated. Allergy testing is required for Collagen starting 30 days prior to treatment. Collagen injections need to be repeated every 3-6 months to maintain maximum benefit. Collagen is a wonderful "lunchtime" treatment--it provides instant results with very little down time.

Dermalogen Injections
Dermologen is also a filler material similar to Collagen but is derived from human tissue. It too can be used to fill fine to moderate lines and scars on the face.

Because Dermalogen is derived from human tissue no allergy testing is required. Treatments can be administered immediately. Treatments take 20-30 minutes depending on the areas being treated.

Dermalogen is a great "quick fix" for those on the go and do not have the convenience to wait for a test. Dermalogen is also the best option for the few people that are allergic to traditional Collagen.
