Treatment for Wrinkles and Acne Scars
About one quarter of all of the protein in the human body is
collagen. It forms molecular cables that strengthen the tendons and
help support the skin and internal organs.
Animal collagen, which has been used as a wrinkle-smoother for many
years, required a skin test to guard against a possible severe allergic
reaction. Because the new products contain collagen found in human
skin, neither single-visit injection requires a pre-treatment skin
test, the company says. CosmoDerm is meant to treat superficial lines,
while CosmoPlast is designed for more pronounced wrinkles.
