Better Skin through Science Science is working to repair the ravages of age. The last several years have seen a huge leap forward in our ability to improve aged skin with laser treatments, dermal fillers, and other technologies which improve and stimulate new protein development. New injectable fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm are available which can enhance lips and bring a plump fullness to our skin. Botox is also often used to prevent dynamic lines which can often make us look old and tired. There are also a number of collagen injections, both human and bovine, which are used to improve the skin’s appearance. The goal of these treatments is to provide an instantaneous improvement to our face and provide soft tissue augmentation to replace what damage the sun has done.
Options for More Beautiful Skin It’s an unfortunate reality that our skin begins looking less and less healthy as we age. This is due to many factors, chief among them being the sun. Sun exposure damages our skin’s collagen proteins and connective tissues, making our skin less attractive. We see the development of facial veins, wrinkles on the face, sagging skin, and thinning of our lips. Our skin begins to lose its elasticity and the fibrous protein matrix made of collagen and elastin in our skin becomes rigid as the sun does more and more damage.
The Patient’s Guide™ to Collagen The goal of the Patient's Guide is to provide quality information about bovine or human collagen injections, dermal fillers, laser treatments, and other skin care methods, as well as a list of physicians who offer treatment for aging skin near you. As a Patient’s Guide™ website we are committed to providing our visitors accurate information that is reviewed and edited by some of the leaders in the field. Please do note that no website, advertising, or opinion can replace consultation with an expert physician and before making any decision on treatment, it is advisable to speak to your doctor first.
