Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Also are there topical preparations for collagen treatments?
Doctor: Dr. Pravin, Physician replied 8 months ago

Yes , these can be injected once in 12 to 18 months to give an overall rejuvenated effect on the skin.

There are topical Hyluronic acid preparations which work like Juvederm but not as effective , These include :

IsoFill serum

How much is the package for those collagen injections and are they extremely safe , any toxicological studies
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Or collagen is extremely safe
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Also can a Patient buy his medicine and have a Dermatologist inject the collagen accordingly.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
What about a substitute?
Doctor: Dr. Pravin, Physician replied 8 months ago

No , the injections are purchased by trained professional expert doctors and they only would inject the Juvederm.

It is a safe option and there are no side effects. Juvderm contain Hyaluronic acid and not collagen.
Hyaluronic acid is a safer option than collagen which is becoming obsolete.

This is extremely safe and no toxicity is seen when injected by the experts./

Please do let me know if you have any further queries.
