What is Collagen?
Collagen is a natural occurring protein found in your body. Like other proteins, with muscle building functions, collagen is a tissue supporting fiber for your bones, skin, muscles, and organs. Much like cells, with tendencies to create themselves naturally within your body, collagen is also a product your body creates. But when the human body starts to age and slow down, low collagen levels can begin to affect your physical appearance. In most cases your face holds the most noticeable change. Wrinkles begin to appear, skin can begin to lose moisture and sag, the same happens to your lips. collagen injections help to maintain levels of collagen within the human body. Collagen has numerous benefits:
- Younger, smoother looking skin
- Removes acne scars or other blemishes
- Removes wrinkles and smile folds
- Bigger, fuller lips
Collagen VS Botox
Botox is commonly mistaken for collagen injections but they differ are a large scale. collagen injections are to add collagen levels to your body, whereas botox, is used to block toxins that cause skin to sag and become less full. Though they can be used to treat the same physical needs, such as lip augmentations, botox and collagen are very different and should only be used after the patient has undergo skin analysis testing.

Collagen injections are very simple and have been around since the mid 1970’s. Common bovine, or cow, collagen fillers are Zyderm and Zyplast; human collagen fillers include CosmoDerm and Cosmoplast. These fillers are injected, below the skin, into the area on the face that is targeted. The most common reasons for an injection would be wrinkles, acne scars, dark bags under the eyes or smile folds.
Bovine or Human Fillers
Before the Collagen injection procedure, a skin analysis test is required. The main reason for this is the allergic reaction patients have had to the Bovine filler. The Bovine fillers Zyderm and Zyplast are collagen fibers that have been taken from cows. In many cases a patient may be allergic to these collagens thus the skin test is required in order to determine if bovine or human fillers should be used. The human fillers, CosmoDerm and Cosmoplast, are made up of purified human collagen. Human Collagen injections do not require a skin analysis beforehand, but it is suggested that one be taken anyways even though not required.
Like any medical procedure, risks are involved and become a major factor. Although collagen injections are a simple procedure, accidents and unforeseeable complications may occur. The most common risk is: a patient has an allergic reaction to the injection. Migraines may occur and if a patient is pregnant or nursing, the sudden change to the body may complicate birth and affect child development. Lidocaine, which is an anesthetic, can also trigger a negative reaction to the body. Other risks with collagen injections include: a bacterial infection, skin irritation and scarring. AAG Insurance offers National Medical Spa Insurance packages to protect your spa from claims and unprecedented complications that may occur.
