Frequently Asked Questions
What is Collagen Instant Therapy?
Collagen Instant Therapy is still one of the most sought after wrinkle treatments.
Collagen is a natural part of our skin and bones and the most common protein in our body. Unfortunately, the collagen support structure of our skin, which provides firmness and support, breaks down over time.
Is Collagen Instant Therapy safe?
Bovine collagen is very similar to human collagen and is extremely effective as a dermal filler. (Collagen taken from animals has been used to treat people for over 100 years in various medical treatments.) A small number of people (1-2 percent) may have a pre-existing sensitivity to collagen, so a skin allergy test is required one month prior to treatment.
How quickly will I see results with Collagen Instant Therapy?
Collagen Instant Therapy gives immediate results. Depending on the nature of the area treated, it will last on average 3-12 months.
What is Hylagenesis®?
A newer generation of skin fillers, Hyaluronic acid is made from Hyaluronan – another natural substance already found in the skin and throughout the body. Hyaluronic acid is used to fill in and smooth away fine lines and wrinkles, and to add volume to areas such as the lips.
Is Hylagenesis® safe?
The risk of allergy to Hyaluronic acid is extremely rare and therefore an allergy skin test is not required.
How quickly will I see results with Hylagenesis®?
Results are immediate and, depending on the area treated, will last on average 3-12 months.
