Collagen Injections


Collagen Injections Collagen, also known as Zyderm or Zyplast, is an injectible filler used to fill in fine lines around the lips and provide more contour and definition to the lip line. The fillers are injected just beneath the skins surface and provide immediate results. Without continuous treatments, the collagen is just naturally and gradually absorbed by the body with no harmful side effects or long-term problems.

Collagen is a great way to reduce fine lines around the lips, but also to provide a much desired and very attractive fullness to the mouth.
