Collagen is a protein that is found is the second layer of skin, known as the dermis. This protein provides the basic support structure for the skin, but over time the natural collagen can weaken and the skin will lose its elasticity.

Collagen is used by physicians as an injectable to replenish the skin’s natural collagen and to plump the skin, giving it a more youthful appearance. Collagen should be injected into your skin only by a trained health care professional.
