Collagen in skin care product is no value because it cannot penetrate through the upper layers of the skin. However, Purified collagen protein has been injected into fine lines and wrinkles for about twenty years. A simple office visit is required and the injections takes only a few minutes. The skin test for allergy is required, prior to the treatments. It takes several days to see the results of the test. Many doctors do a second test and it is good to prevent allergic reactions to the injected collagen. Collagen Treatments are moderately effective but the effects are relatively transient, lasting only for three to six months.
