A huge part of skin health is determined by the collagen layer. There are a lot of skin rejuvenation treatments that are aimed towards stimulating and enhancing the skin’s collagen—and rightly so. Collagen injections also happen to be one of the available types of treatments. Ask a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Andrew Lyos how collagen can rejuvenate your appearance.
The collagen in your skin makes up most of the layer of the skin called the dermis. The dermis is the layer of skin that sits just below the outermost layer, which is called the epidermis. Collagen is a protein that provides a lot of the structural support in the skin and other parts of the body like cartilage, teeth and bones. Newer technologies have made collagen injections available for cosmetic enhancement. The injections are ideal for dermal fillers that add volume, especially for lip augmentation.
