Collagen from cattle can be injected into deeper wrinkles on the face. The injected collagen smoothes out wrinkles and fills in furrows, such as those around the nose and mouth and between the eyebrows. The collagen degrades over several months but may trigger the body to produce new collagen. The procedure may need to be repeated every few months.
bovine collagen can be injected into the face to thicken lips or reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The effects are temporary, as most of the collagen is eventually absorbed by the body.
Collagen is an injectable protein that can be used to treat facial wrinkles. Patients to be treated with collagen should first be tested for any allergic reaction. The results of collagen injections are not permanent, and treatments must be repeated periodically to maintain results.
