|Collagen & Restylane
Collagen is actually part of the natural support structure of your
skin. Wrinkles form when its natural collagen thins. This loss is
mostly a factor of aging, but sun exposure, pollution, health, heredity, and
lifestyle also play a role. Collagen replacement therapy (Using Zyderm
and Zyplast collagen implants) replenishes the skin's collagen layer, smoothing
lines and wrinkles, and adding definition to lip borders from the inside out,
with immediate results. Collagen has been FDA approved and used
successfully on millions of patients for over 15 years!
Restylane is a synthetic form of the natural filler material "hyaluronic
acid" which resembles collagen and is found in skin tissue. Because
Restylane is a pure synthetic product it does not require allergy skin testing
as with collagen. Restylane lasts twice as long as collagen and gives the
same results as with collagen. Restylane has been used for many years on
millions of people and it is FDA approved for the treatment of wrinkles.
For patients who are committed to long term maintenance, Restylane is a more
cost effective treatment as it lasts longer than collagen but costs only
What Types Of Wrinkles Can Be Treated?
and Zyplast Collagen & Restylane can correct virtually any type of
wrinkle. Most commonly treated areas are the nasolabial lines, the lines
around the lips, and the oral commissure lines. Depending on the deepness
and location of the wrinkles, the doctor will decide what type of collagen or
Restylane would be best for you. Collagen & Restylane can also be
used on the lips to give them a fuller more attractive
scars, and a variety of other skin conditions can also benefit from
collagen & Restylane treatment. Acne scars are also generally treated
with a variety of other treatments such as laser, and microdermabrasion in order
to get the very best results.
What Is The Treatment Like?
Depending on how many wrinkles you need to have corrected, most collagen
& Restylane injections take about 15-30 minutes. There is a slight
pain with every injection but you can use a numbing cream prior to the
treatment to make the injections more comfortable. You will have a small
amount of redness and swelling around the injection sites, but that will
resolve within a few hours. Your skin may be slightly sensitive for 1-2
days, but you can generally resume all regular
Are There Any Side Effects?
Collagen is extremely safe with very little side effects. The main
side effect is an allergic reaction which we avoid by performing an allergy
test before the treatment. Restylane does not require an allergy skin
test as it is a pure synthetic material. Minor side effects are usually
redness and skin sensitivity which resolve within a few hours to a day.
Collagen has been FDA approved and used safely and effectively on millions of
patients for over 15 years! Restylane is also FDA approved and has been
safely used for many years.
Is The Allergy Skin Test
Restylane does not require an allergy test. However, Zyplast and
Zyderm collagen are derived from bovine (cow) collagen. Certain people
may be allergic to the bovine collagen and therefore must be tested for
allergies. The allergy test is quite simple, a small amount of collagen
is injected under the forearm skin and observed for any signs of allergies for
4 weeks. Allergic reactions are extremely uncommon and occur in less than
1% of people.
How Soon Will I See The Results?
will see immediate results after the collagen & Restylane injection.
The final result may be more apparent once the redness and swelling have gone
down within a few hours.
How Long Will The Collagen Last?
Collagen injections last for about 3-6 months, varies per individual.
Restylane usually lasts twice as long than collagen. The injected
material is slowly absorbed and removed by the body after several months.
You can reinject collagen and Restylane once it has worn off and you can keep
reinjecting it for as long as you would like. Collagen & Restylane
have been proven to be very safe over a long term as collagen has been used now
for over 15 years!
How Much Does It Cost?
price varies depending on the how many and how deep the wrinkles are which you
want treated. In general, collagen & Restylane are priced by the
amount which is injected, per c.c.
Most wrinkles, such as the nasolabial lines, may
require 1c.c. of collagen, or about 0.7cc of Restylane. Once the doctor
