A recent question…
Q: I always thought collagen pertained to your lips but I keep reading more and more about how it affects your overall skin. Can you please clarify?
A: We love talking collagen here at Queen City Plastic Surgery so we would be happy to clarify! It sounds like you’d be surprised to know that 70% of the protein found in your skin comes from collagen. Not only does it help keep those kissable lips, kissable, but also helps to keep your skin plumped, resilient and yes…..wrinkle-free!
We are all born with bountiful collagen but whether we like it or not as our skin ages the collagen in our skin will decrease faster and faster. Ugh!
And now the good news! Queen City Plastic Surgery offers lip fillers to restore fullness to the lips. We also offer collagen induction therapy, also called microneedling or skin needling to nourish and strengthen our collagen. COSMOpen treatment will speed up the turnover rate of your skin cells so it is better prepared to regulate your skin while fighting wrinkles! It can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, improve skin texture and help with pigmentation and old acne scars. If you’re struggling with volume loss in the lips, then you can combine this microneedling with fillers.
