It’s important for consumers to be aware of and informed about collagen. Most injected collagens are not natural to the body, and there is risk for allergic reaction. Collagen has been used safely and successfully for a long time as filler, but there are many alternatives if you have had a reaction or have been allergy tested and show an intolerance.
Skin rejuvenation treatments that use fillers are natural looking, non-surgical options that plump your skin back to its normal, healthy, and beautiful youth. Creases, sagging, and wrinkles are a natural product of time no matter how good you have been about sun-protection and skin care. Not to worry! Don’t let a collagen allergy get in the way of simple, effective treatments that will return your skin to its best.
For those who are allergic to collagen, alternative dermal filler is Restylane, an FDA approved non-animal based gel that acts much like Juvéderm, another dermal filler.
How Dermal Fillers work
Restylane and Juvéderm work by bringing water to the surface of the skin, leaving you looking refreshed, rejuvenated, and healthy.
Restylane focuses on plumping the skin to restore volume to areas that have lost it due to the natural effects of aging.
Restore volume in lips
Fill in facial wrinkles and fine lines
Fill in folds in the skin
Juvéderm combines with the water in your skin and instantly restores lost volume and reduces lines and wrinkles.
Soften facial wrinkles and folds (such as smile and marionette lines)
Lift tired eyes (dark circles and hollowing under the eye)
Enhance thinning lips
Add volume and contour cheeks and jaw line
Restore overall fullness (volume and elasticity) lost due to aging
