Plastic Surgery Talk

Everything you need to know about cosmetic surgery procedures.

Collagen is said to boost our health and maintain our youth. Luckily we naturally produce these proteins in our bodies, but it's said to decrease as we age. So by the time we are at the age of 50, we lose about half our level of collagen in our bodies due to lack of skincare and nutrition, causing fine lines, sagging, as well as weak bone structure.

Many supplements claim to boost your collagen levels significantly, but where is the scientific evidence? As far as we know, we're better off simply consuming our daily protein of meat, dairy, and beans.

Rather than spending money on a bottle of some temporary “collagen booster”, treat yourself to a nice steak dinner, or better yet treat yourself to something more long lasting like Restylane and Juvederm. These injections have key components like hyaluronic acid, which stimulates and increase collagen output, and protects your existing collagen in the injected area. They work immediately to fill in areas to push out unwanted lines, and the fillers enhanced by the collagen stimulation create lasting effects so you won’t need frequent sessions!
